Default 2010 Ram SPORT HID NEED INFO

OK
So I saw a ram sport the other day with all 3 sets of HID...Highs...Lows...Fogs...And man did it look awesome!
Was checking it out in the parking lot but did not have enough time to really put the questions to him (I do know they were 6k)
I have heard that these trucks are a pain when it comes to installing HID's?
Can anyone help me out in regards to recommending where to buy, and what kind of a job it is to get the job done????
Really looking forward to some info
Thanks everyone!

I have lowbeams and fogs. I got a friend to do it because I didn't want to mess anything up, but after watching him do it it appeared to be pretty easy. The fogs literally take about 2 minutes to put in. The headlights are a little more difficult because you have to take the grill off but it really isn't hard and only took about an hour. I got mine from DDM and they work great but I almost always have to turn them off and back on when I start the truck because one of them will go out. But after that they work perfectly fine, dont blink or go out or anything. I have a picture somewhere on here

+1 for 3bspec here on the forums.

HID's are easy to install. All you need is some double-sided tape/zip ties, 10mm socket, 8mm socket. Anyone with basic tools can accomplish it.

HID's are easy to install.

I did low beam HID's/high beam Xenon single bulb system for the headlights and straight HID fogs, all 8000K.

I found on my '07 that I needed a relay harness setup with a trigger wire for the high beams. Otherwise, the low beam HID's would flicker and go out with a straight harness or a harness with capacitors in it.

3B kit installed under the fender. Gives you an idea of how easy it can be to put one of these in.

Thanks everyone!
go with ddmtuning.com (no need to pay premium prices for hids. theyre old technology so buy em from a wholesale dealer)....get 55 watt kitts because the wattage is the same as a stock 55 watt halogen bulb so the computer system will be less likely to give you trouble with them.

heres the link to the kits:
