Alright @Blue15ColoradoLT ... you're clearly an LED/HID pro...
Is it ok to run the 55 watt HID's in the twins? I know some other platforms had "overheating issues" if they ran those instead of the 35 watt variation (i.e. melting the projector shrouds).

This is what I'm looking at getting:

Alright, @Blue15ColoradoLT ... I've got another question...
(Disclaimer: I'm electrically stupid)

Did I hook all of this up right? Also, do you only need one capacitor total?... or should there be one for each headlight?

If it wasn't after 1 am and me needing to get up early, I could have gotten a better picture but my HID starts at the stock connector, then feeds into what DDM Tuning calls, the error eliminator, then into the ballast, then finally into the bulb.

I'm not sure what that standalone canbus thingie you have is.

According to TheRetrofitSource.com, the Canbus is the error eliminator

Did you have to do any adjustment with yours or were they ok from the get-go? If you did have to adjust them, how did you do that? I found the process for determining the line, but how do you adjust the lights on the Colorado?

Dang it! I read your "same as fog light" post as they were H11s. Guess that's what I get for being lazy.

Easy enough to return through amazon. I'll go ahead and order the proper ones. Thanks for all of your information on this topic. I would not have been confident in doing the swap without it. How long did it take to get your DDM HIDs? I see they are shipping USPS from China.
