Response from Retro Solutions. Is this correct?
 
I had emailed them in regards to buying hid's for my heads and fogs, asking what I would need exactly. I told him that it was the 2013 with factory projectors. I didn't think that two separate kits had to be purchased for low/high beams, but he says otherwise. Also I've heard you shouldn't run 55w in the fogs. Does anyone else have experience with these guys or have ordered exactly what I am looking at and can help out with a parts list?

THANKS!

Thank you for that clarification! Here are the links and selections for what you will need for your particular vehicle application:
Head Lamps
35w DIGITAL headlight kits:
http://****************.net/product-info.php?35W_DIGITAL_HID_KIT-pid663.html
-OR-

55w DIGITAL headlight kits (30%-40% more output):
http://****************.net/product-info.php?55W_DIGITAL_HID_KIT-pid664.html
Please select "9012/HIR2" for low beams, the color of your choice (see below) and for vehicle application, "Dodge Ram 2013+." No bulb capping is required for this application.

For the high beams, the same item will also need to be added to your cart again as a second item, however with the "9005/HB3" bulb selection instead.


Fog Lamps
35w DIGITAL fog lights:
http://****************.net/product-info.php?35W_DIGITAL_HID_KIT-pid748.html
-OR-

55w DIGITAL fog lights (30%-40% more output):
http://****************.net/product-info.php?55W_DIGITAL_HID_KIT-pid746.html
Please select "9006/HB4" for fitment, the color of your choice, and "Dodge Ram 2013+" for application. Here we would suggest the bulb capping service as the factory fog lamp housings do not have built in bulb covers.

The list of information you have been given is correct. You have 3 sets of lights on this truck, low beam's, high beam's and fog lights, each set requires 2 bulbs, 2 ballasts, and 1 wire harness, so in the end you need 3 kits. The fog lights you can if you wish go without a harness, I have seen other members set them up without, but I would myself still go with a wire harness, HID upon lighting draw a good amount of amperes, once on they use up less for the amount of light output, 55watt for the lows is sweet, Fogs I would go 35, but seems from the info they gave you 55 is also possible. As for the high beams, I would leave them stock. Thats just me. Hope this helps

I'll second what Asur said. Go with 55 watt lows and 35 watt fogs and you will be set. The high's IMO don't need to be done as they are more than bright enough.
If you go without the wiring harness you will require anti flicker modules for all the ballasts.

Don't they come with wiring harnesses?

Nope, best to spend the $ now & make it easier

Here's my usual rant. Please don't put HID lights in your fogs without a proper projector. I can't stand people who drop an HID light in a regular reflective housing and blind the hell out of oncoming traffic. :smiledown:

Can I purchase the harnesses through retro or do I have to get them from somewhere else?

As long as they're aimed down properly they won't blind all the on coming traffic. Most people just don't take the time to aim their headlights and fog lights after HID installs....

Retro sells all the stuff you'll need.

I have retros 35w 8000k's in my fogs and 55w in my lows and highs. Very bright and very nice kit. I had to buy the capacitor relay for my low kit as i was having flickering problems occaionally. Some people say dont get the highs but they project the light alot further than the lows so i like them on the highway. Only thing i dont like is waiting for them to warm up haha
