You are not going to find that simply because the headlamp design is completely enclosed. You can either drill a hole in the lamp access cover to fit the gasket assembly or, remove the access cover completely which isn't advised.

Yep, what he said. If you have projectors, you are going to have to drill a hole in the little plastic cover to get the wires through. No way around it. The good news is that it is just a little plastic cover, so if you remove the HIDs later, you can get another one for (I assume) cheap.

They tell me that for Ram 2013+, they have a harness that has no issues with auto on or auto dimming, and there is no drilling. Now I'm confused and have to go back and read these threads to see which company everyone is talking about.

Mine are retro solutions. Other that a bad resister that caused a very slight flickering/pulsing, they have worked fine for the couple of weeks they have been in.

I think most people here are talking retro solutions.
