If I were to guess, I'd say the ballast on the passenger side isn't lighting. If so, swap the ballast and test it on the driver's side. If it works, get yourself a relay wiring harness. (you should get one either way)

I've used DDM once before for my motorcycle. I didn't have a problem with them at all. If you would, once you get the fogs working, snap a couple pics with the lows and fogs on. I'm interested to see how that setup looks.

Threw my Husky mudflaps on today, simple and easy. Then measured for the lift, looks like i will need a minimum of 2 inch up front to level it out, closer to 3 would be better (that still doesn't get it nose high). At least i have a little bit of time to decide, OME front springs or the 2 inch spacer lift.

Last night I started in on the stereo wiring to replace my BA system. So far I have power run, found a ground in the back, and have the front components installed. Ran into a snag with the proper signal going to the speakers, but have a couple of different directions I can go with that so we’ll see how it goes. Tonight I will be installing the rest of the amp wiring, finding a location to mount it and getting the rear door speakers installed.

Also planning the install of my Mag-Light clips somewhere inside to keep a flashlight handy at all times, installing my Commander shift knob, and hopefully getting around to installing my front D-ring shackles if I can get the last parts laser cut today.

Gave it the mileage XS tune with the SC and watched the wife drive off to work in it.

But hey, I get the heated seats in the KK today

he doesn't need a relay harness, i have the same kit as him and never needed one. if his was a 55w kit maybe but 35w HIDs for fogs shouldn't need one.

You should always use a relay. Just because something works doesn't mean it's right. I see people do their own wiring all the time. They think because it works they did a great job. Half the time they're lucky they didn't burn their houses down.

For some people they work fine with out the relay. Others have issues(fried wires or non-functioning ballasts). I never heard of someone having an issue who did it right though.

It's common to get a strobe effect or a ballast that won't fire at all without the relay. Typically it's the passenger side since that's the one furthest from the power source. (slight voltage drop due to the small gauge factory wiring).

Hahahah I don't do a lot of wiring, and I always try to follow the directions, but I feel like I might be one of these people. Lol

Thanks man. Looks good. Are the yellow fogs better than like a 6k like everyone says?

Haha. If I were to go 6k for my lows, 3k for my fogs, leave the halogens in my highs: 1. If I put HIDs in my hellas should I go with 3k or 6k? And 2. Would this look stupid with all the different lights lol?
