Cheap, good quality HIDs

I was just wondering if you guys knew where to get good quality HID headlight for a tj. And if you had to change the headlight housing or just the bulb.

You have to change the housing. You have a sealed beam headlight and you want a H4 housing. For HIDs you need e-code lenses to avoud blinding other drivers. Quadratec has e-code Hella lenses for around 37 ea. I have DDM HIDs. DDM has changed their product line and from what I have read, they may not be as good but people are still getting them The H4 Hi/Lo HID are around 70. Total will be around 150 delivered.,

Cheap and "Good Quality" don't go in the same Sentence with HID's.

You want Quality, you gotta Pay to Play.

I'm running the 35 watt 5000K DDM H7 bulbs & ballasts in my '07 VW Passat. Like $30 or something? No problems at all.

My brother's been running the same DDM H7 5k in his WRX for the past 9 months without any problems....I think ill be looking into DDM, they seem legit for a cheaper price

I bought some xentec HID's for my 2000 blazer ZR2 a few months ago and they where super easy to install and really cheap and where awesome! the only issue i had was they bounced. not flickered but as if the arc was bouncing.

These are kinda cool! http://www.ebay.com/itm/DOT-97-06-JE...ht_10403wt_864

DDMTuning.com I have ran them in my previous '07 f150 for about 2.5 years no problems, got rid of the truck for my 2011 havent ordered new ones yet, and i have them in my wifes '10 civic since about a week after we bought it 1.5 years, she loves them no problems and my buddy has them in his headlights and fogs on his '06 3500 ram diesel and he is hell on that thing had em for over a year no complaints. i think this is one of the very few occasions good and cheap can be in the same sentence singles are $30 and hi/lo's are $50 and i highly recommend the cheesy $4 mounting brackets they are way better than the double sided sticky tape or zip ties.
