by blue tint i assume your refering to an HID kit. you can find a bunch of website that make them for the hummer. just becarful of what you buy. I bought a set of hids for mine a couple of years ago and after installing them only one of them would work on high beam. I emailed the company three times and never got a response. So i ended up throwing them in the trash and went back to the plain old halogen bulbs. but i have had good kits from other companys before....i had a good set on my 325 i ahd years ago. I dont remeber the website for any of these..sorry.
If its the blue color you want then get the ones that say '8000k' for the color . some of the surrounding levels go from yellow - purple- white. just depends on what brightness level you buy.

Yes HID is what I am looking for. Thanks for the response. Does anyone know of a good place to buy these lights. Some question for my Hummer peeps. Are these lights hard to install? Will they hurt my wiring harness? Any help would be greatly appreciated. And thanks again sneaky....

yes very easy to install. its a plug n play system. it uses you existing wire harness and plugs into that. they install like a normal bulb. just google "hummer h3 hid" and you will find a bunch of sites.

I've bought all my sets from LEDs, off road lamps, HID Xenon conversion lighting kits and never had any problems. just make sure you get the hi/low kit or your hi beams will not work.

They're an easy instal, plugs into the factory harness plus a fused power cable to the battery to give power to allow the hi beams to work.

Fog lights are just plug and play, only you have to ake the grill off to get to them.

Thanks guys for the help with this. Is K8000 enough to get the cool blue tint or should I go K1000? And what watts should I go? As ya can tell I know nothing about this. LOL.... I do understand the high / low part.
