From the sounds of things, you have everything that you need.

Before I do any HID install, especially hi/lo kits I lay everything out and figure out what goes where so I do it right the first time and it doesn't take long.

You'll be fine.

GL!

This is what I used and it works great! I installed my HIDs today and they are amazing!!!!

I got mine from http://www.ddmtuning.com

It is called the Error Code-5 eliminator. You probably have to call to get one because they are running tests on Dodge's next week. I called like 10 minutes ago so that is how I know this.

I used the error eliminator and I also got a hi/lo kit but I am experiencing a flickering issue. Everytime I unlock the truck or even open the door the HIDs flicker quick. Then the hi beam doesn't turn on.

I'm thinking that I actually may need another relay harness besides everything that I already have.

So I believe that I figured it out.

With this kit, you need the hi/lo relay, the error code eliminator, a relay harness to eliminate the flicker and so the hi's will work, and also the HID kit. Oh boy, I already know that this is going to be an on going process but when the low's and fogs are lite, omg it is pure sex.
