I saw a few posts on here about HID install when I did mine and no one mentioned using that harness. I just plugged mine in and they work perfectly. I have had them a little over a month now and no problems, not even a tpms problem. Shuold I put that harness on? I think it came with whats called a capacitor? I put those on there. I mean they are rediculously bright.

If its not broke dont fix it lol keep it around so if one day you do get the flicker you can fix it but 0 problems id say leave it be.

Yea im just going to leave it. Does the flicker occur just when you first turn them on or do they just have a constant flicker when they are running for a while? I mean when I hit the door unlock button on the keyless button it flickers on for a second and then they are fine, same when I turn the headlight switch on.

It doesnt do that with the fog lights though just the low beams. They just gradually get brighter and it is only for a second and from then on it is fine. What color HID kit did you get? I got the 15000K they are bright and very blue. Im thinking I should have gotten the 10000K instead. DO you know if I can just order replacement bulbs and use the same balast from notto?

I'm not sure I would go buying a swaybar. My '09 rcsb 2wd didn't come with one, and I don't think not having one is hurting me. I can't for the life of me figure out why it doesn't have one, but I even went so far as to get my build sheet printed out to make sure someone hadn't "borrowed" it when it was still new on the lot. They hadn't-it truly never had one.

A sway bar on the back of a truck can be counter productive at the vehicle's limit.

New parts that I will be installing!! I have a magnaflow catback exhaust, y pipe, K&N intake, billet tech catch can, and a fastman throttle body on its way. I have a local tune shop that said he can tune my truck so I will know about that soon. Is there anything else I can do for performance without voiding my warranty? Once this is done I will be going to see how much an aftermarket torque converter and 4.10 to 4.56 gearing is going to be, anyone got prices on these?

Is it true that there will not be a programmer for the 2011 to 2012 rams? Why is it so difficult to crack the codes on these rams?

There will be tuners, just not right away.
