My grandpa has a saying
Opinions are like ***** holes, everybody's got one, doesn't mean you need to share it.

My old S-10 had 55W ballasts in high and low, but without the "reflector" over the bulb, they were nasty bright! I liked them, but nobody else did. Replaced both on my F-150 for just under $100 to my door.
Where did you buy everything from for that price?

Come to Houston. Every 3rd or 4th car, of the 100,000 or so you pass on your commute, has PNP HIDs in reflector housings. There are no hills, and those bastards are blinding!

That light from your fogs is going to shoot in every which way and blind everyone driving on the other side of the road. Just try walking about 100 ft forward in front of your truck. Notice that the cutoff from your headlights will save your eyes but those fogs are going to be scattered everywhere. It also just isn't a good look as it's just a giant glob of light that everyone else sees.
Your just Wasting your Breath! If op put hids in any stock halogen housing, they could careless about Blinding OP!

what did you use for the two middle lights from Rigid?
I don't have cans in my bumper, so it's just the 2.
Did you add any extra backup lights too?
