pretty much, well you just have to do some basic wiring but nothing too extreme and open your headlights to install and you're good.

What you posted a picture of are the DDE Titaniums.

You've got a few option at your disposal. DDE Titaniums, DDE raptors, Predator Chromiums, and a few other options from ebay.

I don't personally carry the Predator Chromiums so I won't speak on their features, but I do carry the Titaniums and raptors.

The titaniums are thicker and thus cast much more light forward, but are a bit trickier to install because of the increased thickness. I'm working on a proper comparison between the kits, it should be done within a couple weeks (I've been really busy with a bunch of other stuff this past week).

Both kits come with 5 rings, two inverters, installation guide, lifetime warranty (no cost to you, ever), wiring harness with remote kit, and tech support.

Anyway, some comparison photo's between the titaniums and raptors:



The DDE's are designed to easily install in the stock headlights, the most difficult part is getting the courage to do the install the first time.

Good luck in whatever you purchase and make sure to post pics up
