I sold the truck to a buddy, and one of the bulbs quit for some reason, probably due to a bad connection or something, IDK, he ripped them out before I got home. (they have a lifetime warranty....)

this install thread is pretty much 2006 specific, but on any dodge vehicle with a TIPM (2006~2008?) you HAVE to use a wiring power harness.

if you plug the ballast into the OEM plugs, it will draw too much power, and the TIPM will shut off the lights.

i still think this kit is the best money you can spend on a vehicle
