Default Spyder installation?

Just got my spyder headlights in the mail. I was wondering If anybody could give me a quick how to on installing them. I received poor instructions and I'm apparently missing "quick clamps". I get my truck back from the shop tomorrow so hopefully i can work on it then. I did not get HIDs, which i hope is not necessary but Ive head they are, and I saw some how to on here but for HID installs. Im sure its simple and im just over looking it. Thanks.

I need to connect my LEDs and halos into my running/parking lights and I believe plug in my high beams. I am sure it is easy I just have delt with lighting once in a blue moon.

You are correct the video I found is by Spec but it is the exact same process. Just watch the video and you will see how easy it is.

As far as the quick splices that you didn't get I would pick some up from walmart or somewhere...they will making wiring your LEDs into your running lights easy.

Edit: Omit pulling out the two 8MM bolts. You can just pop open that compartment and pull the tab down to release your stock headlights.



Enjoy.

Spyder actually does have an installation video for their headlights its just not for a dodge ram its for a chevy tahoe if i remember correctly. Funny thing is i just installed my own set of spyder headlights to my 07 yesterday. Its an incredibly easy process, the only complicated part of it is if you're installing an HID kit into them, but even then it's not that hard. What you need to purchase are quick connects or quick splice. You can find them at any automotive store.

here is a link to what they look like

and heres a pic on how they turned out on my ram



If you have any more questions let me know.
