I guess it depends on the HID kit. When you look at the bulb assembly, it comes with the grommet with the wires coming through it. Thatís the way my Morimoto kit came.

I installed my kit per the manufacturerís recommendation. I drilled the holes. I used the rubber grommets.

I might have to invest in some. Did you have to cut the dust cover on your lights to install?

Look at the photos. Look at the light difference!!!

Original lights were OEM 9012 bulbs in projectors and OEM 9005 in Brights.
As my truck has Projectors, on low Beam, theyíre 1/2 open. On High Beam theyíre full open.
My HID bulbs are 5000k color.
My Brights are still Halogen PIAA Extreme White Plus 9005. They really donít even come into play on bright.
LEDs are LEDs.
BrightSource Light Bar 10,000 Lumins. All spot.
Aurora Fog cubes are All Flood. 3250 luminous each. Pointed at ditches.

Not sure what my Morimoto in bumper XB LED Fog lights are.

If that doesnít make you want to order some HIDs and change out your ďcandle lightĒ OEM Halogens, nothing will.

Iíve had my Morimoto HIDs in my truck over 4 years. Absolutely flawless performance.
