I just bought some smoked spyder halo projectors with LEDs for my 2011 Ram 1500 not too long ago and it didn't come with the CCFL inverter. Do I need the the Inverter or will the rings be bright enough as they should be without it? Also if I were to get a HID kit I heard that I would need to get a couple Ballasts and error code eliminators for the bulbs, is that true? But if I were to go with Halogens would I still need the Ballasts and error code eliminators? I'm just wondering what extra components I need to get them up and running. :4-dontknow: Thanks :wavey:

Question, are the halo rings ccfl or LED? The red and black wire on the bottom should just be able to be hooked into power and all the LEDs/rings should work just fine. If the rings are ccfl be aware that they may not work properly in the cold, I've run 2 sets of ccfl now and below -20 they always had issues.

If you go with HIDs they will come with their own ballasts, everything will come as a kit. Code eliminators are required only depending on the kit you buy, some require them, some don't.

well to my knowledge they are CCFL but they could be LED cause i ordered them through someone else, maybe he ordered the wrong ones. how can i tell if they are LED or CCFL?

Just went and hooked them up and there was a continuous glow in the rings so they are CCFL so ill need a inverter to put some more juice in them. but its weird how the wires are red and black because all the other CCFL headlight wires i saw were white and had plug on them.

so I did some more research (sorry i didn't do this before) and I found out the halos are LEDs which is Crappy because i got the matching smoked taillights.:doh:
Im now thinking on returning them and getting the spyder CCFL halos in black cause i couldn't find any smoked ones with CCFL halos in them. idk if that'd like dumb though with non matching headlights and taillights, any opinions on that?
But after i decide im going to go with 6000k halogen for the low beam and 6000k HID for the high beam with a switchback LED turn signal.
