I've bought a few kits from this guy, didnt have any problems. When your ballasts fire, does your tpms sensor come on and then turn off?

I ordered a set to try out in a H11 in 6000k to see how they compare to the ones I had ran in my 09. I already have a set of 3000k in the fogs and I had some 8000k and 6000k in the 09 Ram I had before this so we will see how these compare. I have never run 55 watt HIDs before since 35 is usually more than enough for what I need so it will be interesting to see the difference in person.

no i have no problems at all... i had bought a digital set for my fogs.... but when they fired up they woudl shut off my rear camera....i would see the camera light on on the consol ..
with these i have not encountered not 1 issue....but they MUST BE CANBUS... and the newer version.... i was looking for hid for my new truck and all i saw was rape... lots of people here are getting regular or ac ballast with wire harness or some b.s resistors....

these just plug and play...


you dont really have to get them from him but i know for fact his work .. he has canbus ballasts. .... no issues... look on ebay or do a google search for that setup .. if you see the bulbs are not the straight kind its a right angle hid bulb and fits in the housing excellent... jsut tell him to send you the same set up...
lots of guys cut big holes in the back of that housing to accomidate the straight bulb... but get the right one.... and notch the housing .. it will also waterproof it no humidity... dont dont cramp the wires.. leave a little snuggness... if thats a word.. lol. .. use a drill to groove the side and tywrap all 4 wires together and sit the square in the notch. when you close the housing just make sure its as flush as possible.

I can take a pic of the 6000k with 3000k after installed. I had the 8000k on my 09 and couldn't find any pics of it with that setup installed.

Thanks for the heads up on these. I just talked to John about outfitting my 09 with his kits. I have the quad lights so, I'll need 3 kits and $250 for all 3 seemed pretty good. I was planning on 6000 for the headlight and high beam kits and 3000 for the fogs.

Anyone tried these in an 09?

Hell how can u beat the....just make sure they Are canbus.. Also what r u getting? 35 or 55w....

Truthfully all u need is 2 kits 55w u will never need the high beams.... If u have the 55w.... Trust me if u need more lights consider a light bar....that's my next move.... Now I just have to find the right one....
