I will post if I can get them to work or not. Not sure if the wiring has enough power to fire the ballast or if they will hyper flash. Rolling the dice again on another Mod.

I got the HID lights.
I tested the lights with my 12v power supply and they fired up. Went out to the truck and Installed one side to see what I get and the HID light flashed 3 times, stopped, flashed 3 more times, than got nothing.
I put in the OEM bulb and got nothing, no power in the circuit. Turned off the engine and than restarted. OEM bulb relight. Not enough power to fire the HID ballast. Dam electrical system!
My next attempt will be trying to use power from the 7 pin trailer plug wiring where I have my light bar wired into the reverse light.
This is not going to be plug & play if it works. Will update.
