I followed this to the "t" in order to put my Sylvania Silverstar Ultras in my 2011 Ram. I didn't remove the grill, but I did undo the top screws and pop the bottom brackets off slightly. There are a few tabs on the insides of the headlamp assembly that need some extra clearance when removing. I put 4 new bulbs in for the highs and lows, and Sylvania Silverstars in for the fog lights. They aren't making a 9145SU anytime in the near future, so I had to compromise. I'll keep everyone posted on the 'perceived' improvement. Just waiting for it to get dark.

Thanks again

draken: I am not for sure on your model (07'). I would give the guys at DDM a call. They have really good customer service. I would say that you prob. need a canbus setup. They should be able to help you more... sorry.

Wow, thanks for the tutorial on changing a freaking headlight. They had to make it so dang complicated. Just about every other car, I look behind the headlight, pull a wire a pop a bulb out but not Dodge!!! I'm probably not going to go HID after seeing this, but go with a Nokya or PIAA bulb instead just to make things easy.

Default DDM 55 Watt and computer issues

Have you had any troubles since you installed the DDM kit? I installed mine on my 2011 RAM early Frebruary and they worked great up until June. One light started flickering then it went completely out. I put a new Balast I had purchased (in case I installd the HIBeam HID). And It worked for a few minutes then when I restarted all the lights were not working. Now the lights work intermitently. Some days they work others they stop working. I am afraid they will not honor the warranty since I Drilled the covers for the Quad Lamps.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

By the way I bought the adapter with the kit to prevent the computer error on the Dash. As I explained earlier it worked nicely for about 5 months.

This was a 55 watt 8k slim ballast kit from DDM. It is a bi-xenon which means it has Hi and Low beams in one bulb (telescoping bulb).

after installing these in my friends fathers denali 1500 this weekend i was seriously thinking about it until i realized that the only way to do it is to disassemble half of the front end. thats really a poor design, you shouldn't have to take the truck apart to change bulbs. now i don't know what i want to do but i have to do something, the light output when i switch to high beams is garbage, i have better light with the fogs and lows on.

woodmw, Did your DDM kit come with the battery connectors? I assume so. I just received mine and I have no battery connectors, lol. Might have a hard time getting these to run w/o power.

Does anyone have the full HID setup for a 07 BH QC 1500? I've seen at least 3 different ways to do it. Headlights - 35W vs 55W, capacitors, resistors, canceler, etc. I'm not sure on what would be the way to go on the headlights. I'm going to put the 6000K or 8000K 35W in my fog lights but, I'm waiting to order until I figure out what to do with the headlights. Does anyone have a 06-08 Ram that has successfully completed this mod and has ran them for some time now with no issues???
