I don't want LED because I don't like their sloppy light output. As you know HIDs as fog lights is a bad idea because they switch on and off with the high beams and HID bulbs don't like that. I've searched everywhere for an all lights on mod tutorial for the truck, but I can't find anything. Anyone have a link for me on how to do it. Or does the trucks canbus system cause for some difficulty in doing it. Thanks all

If you go to one of the vendors on here; RetroShop.us
you can find an adapter that will allow you to keep your Fogs on with your high beams.
As for LED Bulbs being sloppy, here is my 2012 Ram with the Opt-7 FluxBeam-X 6000k LED Bulbs in the low beams of my "Quad Style" headlight housings:
As you can see, these LED Bulbs are NOT sloppy. They are actually WAY brighter and cleaner looking then the 6000k HID's I had in my 2006 Ram.
These LED Bulbs are no joke. They light up everything down the road. I can finally see stuff off to the sides of the road in the bushes and fields, I can see road signs 1/4 mile down the road and the best part is not 1 person has flashed me or complained about them yet.
The "cut off" for the bulbs is actually really nice for them being in a halogen lense and not a projector. In the 2 photos I posted of the lights against a wall the closer photo I was about 5 feet from the wall and the 2nd photo I was about 12-15 feet from the wall. In both photos the led bulbs have a nice clean cut off to them and like I said I don't even have projectors.
I know you said your more into HID's than LED's but I just wanted to show you that LED Bulbs arnt "sloppy" or crappy anymore. They are just as good, if not better than hid bulbs. No warm up times, no color changing, no ballasts, no error codes and the bulbs never have issues where sometimes they don't turn on.
