I have the tails & 3rd brake light installed already on my truck. When I was home last I didnt get to install the headlights. I get to do that when I am on R&R in a few more weeks. They are sitting in my garage along with my Oracle 8K HID low beams. I can wait!

Is this possible???

I thought that it is not practical for the Quad headlamps especially it will be wear and tear on the Ballasts?? Am i right????

I some other places for different cars, I found that the High wattage could melt the original OEM harness.. is this true for the Dodge RAM? Did anyone try installing the 55W HID Kit??


Please post some pics when your done.. I'm very interested to see how it looks.


Thanks,
Sherif

I know of another member running a 55watt kit with a set of projectors. Haven't heard any horror stories yet.

But will keep everyone posted next days off when I convert!!

Wow those will look sharp but i have to say mighty pricey, i got the same smoke led 3 rd brake and tails, and black housing projector headlights for $280, look amazing the fit and finish was perfect and have not had a problem in over a month and the halogen bulbs are awesome so far, want to do low beam HID and Fogs in HID just dont want to deal with the problems with wiring low beam HID's haha

Congrats, but you spent over 1000 on this. I got my headlights for $2 bills, they are better then the ones you ordered. And the Recon tail lights and everything are overpriced. You could have gotten this all for under $500 and better quality parts.

Just saying, next time shop around more.
