    ok so i have had the deflector problem and fixed it by installing the small self tapper. now i want to fix these bulbs that keep driving me up the wall. i cant justify spending 25 dallors for just the bulbs at boss cause that just half of was an hid kit cost. i have tried running a 9006 with no luck. now my next step what hid kit should i buy for it? i have a name brand set in my truck right now but 200 dallors for plow lights i dont think so. next step ebay what size bulb should i order and how bright do you guys recomend on getting? anyone have any pictures on bulb size and bulb k? do they make the hir3 bulb in hid or should i just order a standared 9006 and pop it in there? also does anyone have a picture of were they mounted the ballest box on the smartlight2's? pictures would be awsome but can live without.



    i did do a serch and nothing came up to what bulb to use or buy for the hid's. im thinking im going to go with an ebay kit and see what happens if im only using the plow for like 20 times max out of the season.

    I mounted the ballast inside the housing behind the headlight. These new housings do not need any modifications to fit the DDM Slim Ballast in them.

    is ddm an ebay kit? do you have a link to the user so i can look into them? have you tried them at night or just during the day. the reason is im getting them for sure, dont need a ticket for an out light but, but at the same sence it would help get people out of the way at 3 in the morning if they are driving to slow!
