Default HID Question?

Hey guys, I have a 12' 1500 crew cab. Me and my dad went to a swap meet the other day and he bought this kit for $50 bucks! Heck of a deal!! However it won't fit on he's truck, so my question is will it work on my truck??

It looks like the bulbs that it has are 9005,9006 & 880/893

This is what I found for low beam, high beam, and fog lamp replacement (in that order):

Pickup w/ 2 head lamps-- 2012-- H13/9008-- H/L-- 9145/H10
Pickup w/ 4 head lamps-- 2012-- H11-- 9005/HB3 -- H10/9145

If your kit only replaces the bulbs that you linked then it looks like the kit might work for your high beams but that's it. Also, I would be wary of a kit in an unmarked box that I got for cheap. It may work fine for a while but if it's a cheapo kit, it will eventually give issues. Things like blown bulbs, blown ballasts, flickering, electrical feedback through the stereo, etc.

I'm not saying those that you have aren't any good....but there are tons of cheap, cheap kits out there. Not having a name on the box is not a good sign in my opinion. Is there a name on the packaging anywhere or on the ballasts or other parts? Doesn't look like it really matters because as stated above I don't think it will fit your low beams or your fogs anyway.

There are quite a few good kits out there and a lot of info on the topic on this forum. As a starting point, Morimoto is probably one of the most highly regarded HID brands out there. You can find them along with some other product ideas (retrofit projectors, etc) here....
