    I'm upgrading my lights on my mm2 to new intensfires.I was thinking about putting hids in the lights.I've heard hids will burn out the isolation module.Is this true?

    You won't need HIDs. The H13s in the Intensifiers are very impressive. Set up dual burn on relays and you will have all the light you need.
    To more directly answer your question, I doubt the HIDs will even light off with Douglas Dynamics' ridiculous wiring harness and Isolation module. Miles of undersized wire and barely adequate switching

    Put a couple of rigid industries LEDs on it, perhaps one 30" e series for 950$ you'll SE for about 3000'
