oh i'm aware of that ddm site i've been on the search a while for some. i just have a few questions i'm going to e-mail another company about. i hear that there is no such thing as 55 watt HIDs, that they start out as 55 watts at start up but go back down to 35 watts. then i read that 55 watts are more like spotlights. either way i figure i'll get the 35 watt ones. they'll be brighter than stock, so no worries there.

and no need for the black paint. they have this

35w will be enough, i promise! lol the prepainted grille is perfect imo. but i do have to agree with mark3 about the hyper black...it does look great, ive played with the idea of painting my whole truck with it, but i decided it would be too much.

the first mesh grille looks good. thinking about one like that for my 08 ram.

no not yet. i'm going to wait on my tax return most likely. been working on paying off some credit card debt sold all my audio equipment i had which will get most of one card down. then a majority of the taxes will go to finish it off but i wanna sneak some out for a grill and/or projectors and HID's i need a new head unit pretty bad too, i miss my ipod, but that will wait a bit still since i want a nice double din unit

in your sig...is your truck really that low? or is that photoshopped? i notice it's low there, but not in your avy. may have a couple questions if it is lowered

EDIT: nm...i just looked through your cardomain and it's not
