Default need help ordering HIDs...

i know sounds retarded right? Well if got a 2011 ram 1500 witht he 4 bulb system. The High beam is bixenon with my daytime running lights. They are 9005 (as far at the website says). The low beams are h11 and Fogs 9145. Correct?
Next question, what options do i need for them. I think ill be buying from ddmtuning. I know its gonan be 3 seperate kits but lets start with Fogs.
Raptor 55w 6000k, 9145 bulb. do i need any harness or error elim.? or just the kit,
Same for low beam, Raptor 55w 6000k, H11 bulb. Any harnesses or relays or error eliminators?
Again for the Bixenon High beams. Raptor 55w 6000k, 9005 (ill be confirming the bulb by pulling mine before ordering) This i should need a harness or something right?
I ordered kits before off ebay and they cam with harnesses and everythign it was jsut plug and play. Id assume these are the same are they not??
Thanks!!

I've been asking the same question(s). From what I have been told you'll need 1 complete set for each pair of headlights (bulbs & relays)

You'll also need the cancelers for the Low Beams and I suspect the high beams, otherwise you'll get the flicker issue.

I have not installed these yet though, so I'd wait for a better source to reply.

With DDM I suggest you get the cancellers for the low beams. Are your high beams gonna be HID too? If so, get cancellers for them as well. 55W may be too hot for your fogs as it could melt the can or plastic lens. The 35W does just fine.

thanks for the info, and yea that makes sense about the fogs. Yes i wanan d the HIDs for the hi's. i called them a few minutes ago and he said chances are HIDs wont work with my low beams because "dodges are touchy trucks". then i said well i need bixenon for my hi beams as they are DRL and HI, his response was that none of there kits would work for me at all and i wouldnt beable to get HIDs for my truck (other then the fogs) at all. So i wasnt very happy with the service over the phone because thats obviously not true since so many people have them!! makes me wanna check else where.

Well, now I'll tell ya the rest of the story.

He is correct...Dodge Ram trucks are difficult. Some folks have had good luck with a relay harness, a capacitor (4700uF) wired into the harness, cancellers in series with the harness and even simple resistors.

I have a set of DDM 6,000K low beams installed in my truck. They don't work with resistors, caps or cancellers in the harness. Right now I have them wired to a separate switch with a relay, powered straight by the battery. They WILL NOT work with the stock harness.

But it's not just DDM...I have tried 4 separate kits and 7 different harness arrangements...still have the flickering and bulb going out problem.

I'm not done and I ain't gonna give up.

that sucks, i dont blame you. I just want them to work like stock, i dont want to be having to control them with a switch. I have auto lights on my truck and i like that i dont have to do anything they come on with the fogs when they need to and turn back off when they need to. so id like to keep it that way.

And that's why I've only considered swapping bulbs with SilverStar Ultra so far...

^ was thinking the same thing.
I want HID, but might just settle with SilversStars for now.

They have wiring harness with the proper resistor for our trucks.
They make kits just for RAM trucks. Great customer service.
