I purchased the 55w 6k kit from Jeremy and when they did work OMG, they look sweet, nice clean light and the stock projector lenses on the 14 rams go great with it, the cutoff is perfect. Just a same i couldn't get mine to work and had to go back to the shitty stock halogen bulbs. I did contact jeremy and ill be sending my kit back and have reached out to some local shops here that will provide the kit and install and lifetime warranty on both. They had mention they use GTR lights kits and they work great for the newer rams. Good luck with everyone on the install there great lights just wished i had better luck with them, plus Jeremy has been great.

Just curious, for everyone that has already installed the 55w system, where did you mount the ballasts? There doesn't seem to be many spots to mount them under the hood. I bought 55W 6000K set for the projector headlights and a set of 55W fog lights. I am in the process of installing and so far the only hinderance is where to mount the 4 ballasts.

not sure about the 50w ballasts, but Jeremy from Retro Shop says to install the 35 w ballast in the headlight housing itself...video here.

I got the 55w and i put them in the headlight too. I had issues a few times and he said to rotate the capacitor and since then no problems. There very bright and i like the 6000k color
