No problems with anything for me. Call Prolightz direct.

You could call Prolightz and tell them your issue.
There were some resisters in the kit I bought. Did you get/use those? Not sure if thatís what they do. Just asking.

I'm 100% sure it is being caused by the lights, reception clears up instantaneously when I shut them off. Any advice on this? Thanks again.

Itís pretty common. You could install some ferrite chokes close to the ballasts.

It’s difficult to say the difference in 35w-55w because I changed the bulbs from 4500k to 5500k. That went from a yellower light to a brighter white light.

I can tell you this, that I notice a markable difference. And with the projectors in full open on high beam, there isn’t anything else I feel I need to do to my high beam 9145 bulbs.

I have the Morimoto XB LED fog lights that I swapped out for the OEM. I’m happy with those as well.
I wouldn’t put HID in the fogs. To much light is bad in a fog or driving snow situation.

karirick Please put 9006 bulbs in your fogs makes a huge difference imho.

Down the road isn't better, but the entire front/side is much better.

Also I believe our trucks come stock with headlights adjusted too high. I lowered mine a small amount and don't get brighted anymore and actually see better down road.

And for $10 it's a no brainer.......

Hope that helps.

Rick

Sorry @Scott183, I just checked my order. They were 9012 bulb - 5500k colour.

55w ballast with 5500k bulbs.

Perfect setup. No issues whatsoever.
I haven’t done any lift on my truck. Stock setting on lenses. Not one oncoming car Flash.
