no...you'll need our projector adapter to mate the lights to the truck.

So I purchased the Morimoto Elite Mopar HIDs, along with purchasing the harness to operate the lights from retroshop. My truck came with quad lights, I purchased a pair of OEM projector lights. I'm confused on how to use both the Mopar kit, and the adapter kit from retro shop together? It seems like I'm missing something, I have a 2016 Ram 1500 came stock with quads please help

You will use both parts there.

The adapter is what mates the lights to the truck, the 15+ harness is what sends power to the HIDs.

Shoot me over an email if you have any questions on the install (or call us!) - and we can get you squared away.

My Morimotos were delivered this week and I was able to the install this evening. First thing, wow these are bright!
However, I ran into two separate issues after install. One is when they fire, the passenger side makes a very loud whine which gradually gets quieter over about 10 seconds. Loud enough to make someone jump if they are walking in front of the truck when I turn them on.
The other issue is a bulb-out warning. My truck came stock with quads. I purchased OEM projectors and then the conversion harness from TRS. All worked flawless. So right after install, all lights are working but I get a parking light/left turn signal out message. Funny thing is front and rear blinkers operate at normal speed, but dash light and driver mirror signals are hyperflashing.
Anyone have thoughts on these?

Unfortunately more updates on this.
I tracked down the bulb-out/hyperflash issue; found a wire had pulled from the quad-to-projector harness adapter connector. I fixed that up and that solved that issue.
The loud whine continued from the passenger side. I drove it for the day figuring I'd just let it slide until later that night when the driver side went out.
I disassembled the truck again and checked all the connections; still nothing. I then swapped the components from one side to the other. The loud whine had then transferred to the other side as I would expect (definitely the computer module, not the igniter). The light that had gone out on the left then worked again while on the right; but only for a few hours before it went out again. I've tried swapping all the components in a myriad of configurations with no luck. So I was left with one side that works but sounds horrible, and the other that works for a few hours then quits.
Needless to say, I've yanked it all and back to square one with the halogens.
