Default HID question?

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer looking to get HIDS possibly because i hate stock lighting.. I keep reading on the internet that HIDS in the stock housing tends to blind people. Never had a issue in other cars with this becuase the cars were lower but with a suv being up high dont want to have issues with blinding people.. Does anybody with HIDS in suv specifically maybe a explorer have issues with hids at all? Blinding ppl, etc.?? Any input appreciated.

People on the internet are stupid.

My buddy had a 04 F150 with 6000k HID's in the headlights and 3000k fogs. I've met him head on many times at night and it didn't blind me.

If you adjust them right and have the housings that have the cap over the bulb (or a projector) they don't blind people.

oncomming traffic usually isn't a problem but I do blind people all the time. Especially behind people who don't have tint at stop lights. {I get a really good view of the back of their heads}

my F150 sits a little higher than most. [32"ish tires]

if you are using stock housings, they should work very well.

If your stock bulbs are 9007, I wouldn't bother with the dual focus HIDs.. just get the fixed focus and live with one setting. (friggin sucks when your beam bounces all over because the 'dual focus' is sloppy junk)

If you can get 'true AC' kit, it's worth more than double the cost just to have better light. [talk to LyferXb9s]

I've never had an issue with the hi/lo bulbs from DDM tuning bouncing around. I have them in my F150, my buddy has them in his F150, my brother has them in his F250 and my other buddy had them in his mustang before he sold it.

None of them bounced around.

I love HID's. They put out more light so I can see animals before I plow over them and destroy my car.
