Check out my album, I have a pic of my father's 450 with a Randy Ellis bar and 4 KC lights, I like it and think it looks pretty stout.

yeah thats what I ordered and I thought thats what I had.......

I dont know anything about electrical stuff so forgive my ignorance.

When I hit my high beams its just really low regular light???????

I paid the extra to Stealth to get the high low kit, maybe I wired it wrong? OH boy I dont want to open that can again lol

So what does yours do when you hit your high beams?

I have just HID Low beams, and fog lights and never feel the need for the high beam.

Most of the Bi Xenon kits use a regular halogen bulb for the high beam which is not going to be any better than your low beam HID.

i didn't get my kit from stealth but when i hit the high beams my hi beams come on and the fogs go off. But honestly your low beams and fog lights should be more than enough. i get flashed to the point it gets really annoying.

Not my truck, but this is a defiant light bar. Best in my opinion.
