HID Questions

Im going to be purchasing HID for my jeep soon and had a few ?'s

Going to use these ARB920H, ARB IPF Round 7 Inch H4 Headlamp Inserts (Universal) - 920H


And these HID's
http://www.ddmtuning.com/product.php?II=101

Should I go with 35w or 55w ( Driving Lights )
I want to get the H4 bulbs (h4/hb2/9003 with the high and low)

Will I need the HID harness, error eliminator or the adapter cables?

i think i have 55w H3 fog lights but either one is fine in my opinion. but are you saying your planning to get HIDS just for your driving lights or your headlights too?

You do not need the harness and the error eleminators are for BMWs and other vehicles. Get the 55w. I know IPF does have e-code headlights, are those the e-code? I have Hella e-codes in mine.

They come with the relay harness, whenever you buy the hi/low H4's, it comes with a harness because they're special in how they work compared to the normal HID's since it has the hi beam.

I have h4-3 in my truck....or at least did before I changed to a newer style front end.

And get either the 35 or 55, it's up to you. But the 35W setup should last longer. Granted, DDM does have a lifetime warranty, so it's not a big deal, but just ssomething to consider. BTW, they use the same bulb, 35 and 55, only the ballasts are different between the two.

Agreed, get the highs, while they aren't really useful (HID's don't get brighter, the light is reflected higher). They do come in handy for flashing people and it does help a little. Also, by getting the hi/low kit, they come with a relay harness, the standard HID's don't, and you NEED a relay harness with HID's. Factory wiring isn't sufficient enough for them.

I installed that setup on my buddy's TJ. We went with the 55w, 6000k, H4 hi/lo kit. It is a great setup, but I will personally be going with the 5000k bulbs because his are a little too blue for me.

I run a DDM HID kit on my wife's Suburban (for about 2 years now) and they are AWESOME. She loves them so much she brags to people about them.

Yea, I have 6,000K as well. I bought them back in 09, and when I buy my new set, I plan to get 5,000K.
