I'm about to give up on these HIDs. So after trying every thing I could on this Best HID kit, I looked around and found a guy who GUARANTEED no flicker on my '07 ram. So I drove across the whole city with a big smile on my face to pick them up, go home, throw them in, and have them do THE EXACT SAME THING. Why is this such an issue? I feel like pullin over the next ram I see with HID's and getting him to show me what the hell he did to make it work. I just bought a Philips CANBUS INC HID kit and it did the same shit as the cheap ass Best HID kit. I've bought all the different parts and add-ons, relays, capacitors, resistors.. I'm a little reluctant to believe that that little $10 HID on EBAY will fix this bull shit problem but I mean what other choice do I have?
Mopac has a 2007 Dodge Ram specific HID kit for $330 but that's gettin a bit ridiculous. I tell ya guys, this has really tested my patience..

Try this, even cheaper, $6 on amazon.

Might just be what you need. I run 35 watt ballasts, no need for 55 watt. A 35 watt HID is still 10 times better than stock. I have 35's in the fogs, and will be installing 35's in the low beams Tuesday. You don't any harness for fogs, just hook them up.

Its nice that you give information to members and give them possible products for there applications, but no need to "!!!!" and twist members into going with those specific products. Its nice to be passionate but take a breather bro. Also, would not recommend 55wats in your fogs, many have reported that the fog units are too small and over heat causing some melting over time. Also 55watts in the Fogs will over flare and can cause on-coming traffic some visual issues. Just a heads up

It should look like the above no line cancellers or capacitors or reals... Just plug and play..... As for my 13 it more of a pia than your 07.. I just felt bad u got baged for all That money... So if you want to keep shelling it out be my guest... I hate seeing vendors selling 250-300 dollar Kits and taking u guys for suckers. I got top and bottom done for 200.00 flat 8 months not 1 issue,message nothing.... Period. Oh and since u wanted to get technical.... Your stock bulbs ARE 55w halogen.... I run 55w hid with a lower amp draw and cooler temp in the housing. Hir2 bulb doesn't put out the heat the straight ones do its shorter and as for my fogs.. Not 1 scuff,burn or discoloring. ... Maye a we tad bit of minor glare..wellll f em let them see me coming. For the record u solve your flickering.? And how much did it cost u.. I saved a few guys here hundreds and got them what they wanted. Why go to r@&$o sol and pay 450 ...really... 2 bills brother and done.
