What's a good brand of hids to get? I want something that's plug n play. I don't know which ones are good and which ones are junk. And input would be appreciated.

QuadBoss HID's are Vision X I think and they are a good quality replacement, I have been debating on replcing the ones on the RZR with them..

I get all of my Hid's for of my vehicles and wheelers from DDM Tuning.
I have never had any issues at all. Lifetime warranty. Great prices too!

Guy's wouldn't it be better to go with led's? Most only draw a fraction of a hid lights. It's a lot easier on you charging system also.

I think it is. I have a 10" Rigid bar and you couldn't tell my hid lights were on when it was running. I took them off and sold them and put the stockers back in.

For the money the hids do me just fine. The hids draw less than the stock bulds do.

for stock replacments (that I know of) most companies do not offer led's. Polaris offers LED's for the RZR but HID's are a LOT cheaper and work about the same. I have considered HID's for the stock replacements on the RZR but have not broke down and done it yet.. I do have two Baja Designs Squadrons on the front bumper that offer amazing light output (leds)..

Rigid Industries LED's is what I run. A set of D2's and a SR-10 bar in the front a Dually flood for a reverse light. I can't even tell the sun went down...lol

i agree leds have better light output but the ones i have and the most i have seen blind oncoming people so bad it makes it dangerous to pass at speed where as hids dont as bad and hids are a great improveent over stock bulbs almost like going from hids to leds about the best price hids ive seen are ddm

Anyone running LED's probably should turn them off when approaching oncoming traffic. I know everyone in our group always do. I had thought about buying Kawi LED headlights for my T4, but didn't want to blind oncoming traffic especially since we ride the road to the trucks at night occasionally.

I hooked mine up with the high beams so I can switch to low when I meet someone, But if I'm running in a group I don't like using them cause I will blind anyone in front if me. I just have a 18" led light bar. It put out 2900 lumes. I plan on getting some flood leds for the front also so I can light em up when I need to see.

I got mine through ddm does anyone have any install picks or instructions? They only sent me one bulb I guess one kit, so I'm trying to get that straightened out. But the one bulb came with two wiring harness's. one has a square box with a red fuse and a 3 prong plug, the other looks like a ballast with two plugs on it. Any help is apprecited

Aaron, did you order the single motorcycle kit Hi & Low beam? Did it look like this?

This is what you need. Dual motorcycle kit Low Beam. The bulb is a H4  I use the 5k color. I have just low beam and mine are almost 4 years old with zero problems. With the type headlight housing the Grizzly has, the Hi- Low kit is a waste due to it not having a reflective lens in the housing.

Call me or send me a pic of the kit you have, with your phone and we'll go from there. 1-270-543-0500
