Edram is on a distinguished road
Default HID and Led bulb rumors? Help please.

Hey guys.
Newbie to the site.
got myself a 2013 sport. Has projectors but not HID.

So someone today at JBs powercentre was telling me that the way the lights are wired in this vehicle, its impossible to get HIDS?
They told me when they tried, it affects the whole car, and the dash lit up like a xmas tree, as in all the engine lights and such came on.

Is this true? If so, can I just put a 6000k bulb in there? Or will this affect my cars electronics? I'd like to change all my bulbs to led in an out as well, but he was saying something about the way the car is wired, you can only use dodge bulbs?

What Asur said, that is the system I have running in my 13 Laramie without issues. Sounds like the folks at the power center were having fun with ya. Worst case, a HID system may fire off an indicator dash lamp about a bulb out and the HID may flicker. Kits are made to address these issues. Also Google for canbus HID kits, these also work on our trucks.

Retro solutions has top notch support and I believe a life time warranty.
