I have an 07 Ram, whats the big difference between the 35W and the 55W. Also, do I need a wiring harness or any accessories to make them work properly without the flickering?

I can't really speak for the 07' model but for mine I did not have to buy any of the extra harnesses or anything else just the 55w kit. Either my truck doesn't have the can-bus system or the 55w kit is enough to trick the system by itself, because there was no flickering with the kit I purchased. The main difference between the 35w and the 55w kits is the light output. The 55w kit does washout the color a little more in the bulb due to the brightness. If you want a 6000k bulb color then order the 8000k bulb and so on... The main reason why I ordered the 55w kit for mine was the fact that so many people were having problems with the 35w kits and the can-bus systems on their dodge trucks(aka flickering problem), and they were having to add extra stuff to trick their system into thinking it was still using the factory 55w halogen. So I figured well if I put a 55w kit in then maybe I won't need any special harnesses or a can-bus cancelling kit, and it worked in my case. I'm not saying it will work on the 07' but on my 09' SLT it worked perfectly.

Awesome. I appreciate it. Im going to be getting them soon. So if I wanted to 8000k color, it would really change it that much where I would need to get the 10000k??

If you want 8000k and are buying the 55w then get the 10000k.

great write up woodmw! i had an hid kit for my dad's 09 ram from ddm tuning 38 watt hi/lo and it worked great for a few months then the driver side ballast stopped working. this happened twice and it was deff a pain in the ass. deff thinking about trying a 55 watt kit now since u have had good luck with yours. and u said u installed them with just the wiring harness that it came with no error code eliminators?

How is your FM radio with the HIDs? Some people were talking about interference.

nitro017: Yes, I did not order any special harness or anything else and it worked great.

Speed 1B: My FM radio is not affected by the HID's. I can't say that it will not affect a factory radio since mine is an after market radio, but it doesn't create any interference on mine at all.

great i'm going to get a hold of a 55 watt kit for my dads ram soon. hopefully throw some pics up of it done.

Speed 1B: 100% agreed with woodmw. I have hid's on my 08 nitro now for about a year and a half now and never had any issues with radio interference.
