So Mr. FedEx came today with my DDM Tuning HID Kit...

First Mod To Gunner! :woot: :woohoo: :woot:

6000k 55w High Beam Kit

Old Lights (Day)


Old Light Output (Day)


Ballast Location Behind Headlight Light Assembly


New Lights (Day)


New Light Output (Day)


New Lights Output (Night)


New Lights Closeup (Night)


After driving around tonight I LOVE THE NEW LIGHTS!!!

Granted they do take time to warm up but once they get going they light up everything...

During instillation I ran into one problem and called DDM Tech Support who helped inform
me that our polarity is reversed on the Trailblazer so I needed to flip the plugs 180 to
alleviate the problem.

All in all, super bright and easy to install...

the road seems like it goes black due to the difference...

I have a DRL killer (modifier), and a pair of relays (low beams and fogs). Got all of them from Jetttstream. The instructions are on his website, and very easy to follow. Just need to have a deep socket to get the 2nd row seat completely out.

I put a relay on my fogs so I could use the spare low beam connector to make them quads since I always turn my fogs on when the low beams are on anyway. :cool:

@ blckshdw - do you need the relays cause im most likely to just do the lows...

@ Black04 SLT - they were $60.64 shipped to my door... I went with the high beams first because I wanted a plug'n'play for my first mod... didn't want to mess with the DRLs or relays yet.

Some people have gotten away with not using relays on their lows, but it's highly recommended to make sure your ballasts get a constant 12V, otherwise you run the risk of burning them out.

If you do the capacitor mod instead of the DRL killer, then you should get a full 12V during your DRLs as well as auto lights. All comes down to your personal preference and how you want it to look/function.

The capacitor mod is by far the cheapest solution. My capacitor cost me less than a dollar and the wire splicer was in a pack that was a little over a buck. You should also get a ring terminal to go onto that mounting piece where it grounds. Check out my thread and you should be able to figure it all out.

Welcome to the world of HIDs! Now you're gonna hate all incandescent bulbs and put LEDs everywhere. At least that's what happened to me... :D

yeah its all over... i have been buying "daylight" bulbs for my house for a while now and my tuck is starting to match! my pocket is getting lighter :bonk:

@ bigapple - the capacitor mod works as DRL enabler right? So when used with a relay it should work the best?
