    After seeing Alaska Bosse's HID conversion, i knew i wanted to do the same thing. I had thought about it before but never really got into it. So i ordered the same kits as he did and did the install =] All i can say is I am extremely happy with it!!!

    This is my truck next to my friends 04 chevy 2500HD...before his stock lights would have blown away the silverstars that were in my truck..

    The first pic is the trucks with the hi beams on, second is the low beams on, the last is the hi beams on from behind the lights. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics!

    Any questions, please feel free to ask!

    I definitely think it was worth the money and the Digital kit i bought was very high quality!!

    Thanks for the compliments!!!

    Its just taking some time to get used to how the ballasts can take a couple seconds to warm up when switching to high beams...i'll soon be wiring up a harness that combines the hi and low beams when the hi's are switched on, that should help =]
