Yes they look bad ass and bright, is that what your looking for? If its the look of the truck your going for I say go for it, they are brighter than stock bulbs so you'd be happy.
On the other hand, if your trying to bright up the road in front of you stay under 5000k. As stated earlier, 4300k provides the brightest lumens and is big difference in lighting compared to 6k. Just my .02
Thank you stealthboogie your deposit of .02 has been noted

We could argue all day about what we think is better.....

Ya know like:

Gmc vs Chevy
5" exhaust vs 4" exhaust
35 watt vs 55 watt
Nfab vs go rhino
Cognito vs zone
Bigger tatas vs smaller tatas
DDM vs the 2nd placers
So on and so on ,



But at the end of the day everyone does their own research and makes their own decisions

Just get what you want "original poster" don't let us sway you away from that!




Edit; as a disclaimer I will not bash any product that anyone else has or has had, I feel we all hold our own power to hit the "buy it now" button when ordering parts and in doing so feel we have made a confident decision

You think I listened to people when I was building my show truck in the below build link in my signature? Nope!


P.s., I loved my DDm HiDs! No problems when I had them

been running DDMs for years with no problems. Just recently after 3yrs had one bulb go out. Paid $30 for a new kit and all is back to normal again.. you will spend less for an entire ddm kit then you will a single SilverStar bulb

6000k is closest to actual sunlight. 4500ish will penetrate through fog better, 5000k is usually considered to be the most "white"
