    where to ground ballasts?

    should my JDM HIDs be grounded to the light harness switched ground or the chassis? the guy i bought them from has wires soldered to the ballast's grounds and metal O-rings on them, like they were grounded to the chassis, and i've heard from some people to ground them there, some say to ground to the harness switched ground. anybody running it one way or the other?

    If you want to get complicated with the wiring you can wire them to the body. But you will need a few relays and alot more wires to do this.

    Just wire it to the stock wiring harness.
    No one will truely be free until nerd persecution ends.
