I honestly don't know that much about HID's, but it seems that people usually sell them for a reason. Good Luck !

That kit will work man! The two black boxes are relay boxes for the ballast!! Which will work and if they flicker, you will need to install a separate relay per ballast, which is common for the dodges!

CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP! I am looking at that and the instructions don't even go with that kit. I don't really see how to hook them up to power.

Are those bi-xenons? what is the red and white wire for coming off of the bulb???

Anyway IMO I would return them and get a Decent kit. Well worth the extra 30 to 40 bucks.

Still their wire colors are WAY off!!! Thats what I thought but anyway I would return that kit for sure.

I am sorry not to beat you up man but you just got a cheap kit. I still haven't figured out where you get power for the ballast??

Anyway if you have any more questions you can certainly PM me, I just did a PnP HID kit on my truck and am now redoing it tomorrow lol. But I am doing a projector retro fit! SOOOO Excited!!

Well it is definently a cheap kit but Im guessing it getting it's power from the 2 wire plug that plugs to the factory harness then goes thru the resistor/relay box to
The ballast to keep the flickering down, but ur right the wire colors are way off!! But yes IMO send it back!!! But feel free to PM me too for any other questions!!!

That makes NO sense, There is no way your getting enough power out of the factory harness to power those ballasts, If they would even start up it would probably take 5 mins to turn the bulbs on...
