Default 2011 HID HELP Please

So I am wanting to order HID headlights for my 2011 Ram quad headlight system and fogs. I want High, Lows, and fogs.

What are the number of the lights?
Do I need anything to help with flickering or problems like that?
Is DDM good place to purchase them?
Should I go with 55w or 35w?

Any help would be awesome.

-I'm not sure on the number of your application headlights, but i'm sure someone will jump in on that one.
-A relay harness should solve any flickering issues, you'll need one for his, one for lows, you probably won't need one for your fogs. These are fairly inexpensive, normally costing about 15 bucks per relay. And they aren't difficult to hook up.
-DDM has a decent reputation on here from what i've read. **************** has a better rep, from what i've read. I went ebay, and i'm okay with everything I got.
-Main applications are 35W, I haven't dealt with any 55W systems, or seen them first hand. 35W systems are still ridiculously bright, just tonight I was 'flashed' 12 times just driving 30 miles.

Buy a simple HID kit for each set of lights and put it in! This may blind other drives however, I would do a projector setup personally. (DONT get the slim ballast and DO buy the cancellers) for the head lights and highs. Fogs don't need the cancellers.

**************** has a setup specific for the quad setup. I installed them on my 2011 ram 55w 5000k and very impressed with them no issues so far. I also went with the fogs from them as well. Great product and great customer service!

And if you are getting flashed, that's because HID light tends to scatter in a stock halogen capsule. I get that a lot and will be retrofitting to add some projectors next month.

Then folks will wave at me with all their fingers vs. just one.

LOL.
Knock on wood but, I have yet to be flashed!
Look at xdreamauto on eBay (Canada?)

I was going to buy from DDM Tuning and then I read what others here had to say about their kits. Seems lots of forum members do not like their kits. I took their advice and looked elsewhere.

I aimed them down...all the way. The lights are actually projecting downward, however they just see the bright ass light and think that my highs are on. I'm not changing anything. Sorry if I blind you for 3 seconds, but on my 30 minute drive I would prefer to see deer long before they hit my truck.

And it's not just the HIDs, when I had my stock halogens in I would STILL get flashed. People in small cars are in my beam pattern on my higher stance truck. The HIDs just make the flashing more often, but again, the lights themselves are 3 times brighter, so when your looking at them, they just look like high beams. I wish people would understand that when your fog lights are on, you AREN'T running high beams.
