Retro solutions is a popular choice and from what I've read here their customer service is second to none.
Yes you will need a relay harness with built in capacitors to get around the canbus system in the Ram. Without the harness and caps you will get flickering among other issues. Most reputable HID sellers make a specific kit to address the canbus issue in our trucks.

i think my best bet is to go with retro by the sounds of it. A bit pricy, but i think you probably get what you pay for.
