Why is it (if anything other than personal preference) that people put such a high kelvin rating in these trucks- thereby reducing the effect of the HID kit install? Hell, if 10000k is what someone wants, why not save a buck and install just a set of blue APC bulbs? The visibility reduction will be about the same and you save yourself about $100.
Thanks for letting me vent. I hope someone can clear this up for me.
I wanted a blue light to help complete the black and blue look of the truck for starters. My PIAA's have a blue LED when they are nhot on so the combo is kick a** in person. Then, I did not to be one of those guys with the lights that blind anyone coming at them. Aiming them down only does so much, the reflectors are just not designed for the light output. Finally, mine are crazy birght and I have the 10k. When I hit my PIAA's I cannot tell they are on unless they are on the fog setting since that has a yellowish tint to it.
