    Figured I would start a new thread so any questions could be asked here. If this is to much of a re-post mods please message me and we will probably delete this thread.

    So there are some good and some not so good things to report.

    First off the headlights appear to fit okay. Output is good. I'd say they fall right where we think. On par maybe slightly better than a drop in HID. They don't touch a FXR retrofit or something to that effect I think. For me the headlights were plug and play. Also I have my day time running lights enabled and they function perfectly.

    The not so good. The high beams do not function without the headlight on. Pull the stalk and the shutter clicks but no light. With the headlights on they work as intended. Also I am getting bulb out error messages for both turn signals. So it looks like there are some bugs to be worked out. Can't say I'm to happy about that but it wasn't entirely unexpected.

    So I did take a lot of pictures and here we go. Please ask away and I will do my best to answer. If you want a fast response quote this reply and I'll get a notification.

    Here is a youtube video showing the headlights working.

    Goes: Daytime running lights, parking lights, low beams, high beams, and back down.

    Damn. Mine were supposed to be in on Monday but keep getting delayed for weather. What year is your truck? I believe they did all their tests on a 2017 ram with projectors. All the trucks act differently so I can see people having problems if they don’t have a 2017

    They’ll just send you resistors to install. Definitely not plug and play now. Do they hyper flash at all?

    That's what is strange. The headlights turn signals do not hyper flash. The rest of the truck does though.
