Thanks!

Other than that was there any other problems?

They seem like a good company I see they are on our forum also.

I also saw you said there was a problem you had two lines in your lights?

Yea the bulbs weren't placed in right, because one of the tabs is too long, once you shorten that with a nail clipper, they'll go in right and everything will be fine. Unfortunately their customer service couldn't resolve this issue... and I was close to hit up Paypal and ask for a refund until I looked at Page #2 here and followed a member's guide, Skinyfat is his name... Cut that tab in half

Has anyone had luck with their 2015 and putting in HID's? I tried the Diode Dynamics kit and they would shut off on me randomly when driving and also would create a line in my light pattern so I returned them. Anyone had good experience with any other kits?

Please read my last posts. The V shadow is because the bulb isn't sitting right in the socket. Yes, when you get the kit, there are two ways the bulbs go in and sit, upside or downside. Both of those positions are wrong. Look at PAGE 2, you need to cut the longest plastic tab half way (length) with a nail clipper. This will let the bulb go in and sit sideways just like the way you put the OEM bulbs. This will fix your problem as it did mine and SkynFat guy in page 2, it was his idea and it worked. No other problems with the Xtreme HID kit

I am looking for a plug and play kit straight out of the box. Not something that I need to modify to fit correctly. Is there anything that exists yet?

It is plug and play, all you gotta do is use a nail clipper to cut that half way, make the tab shorter... How hard is that ? lol

@TravizP - Did you make sure to get the Chrysler PWM HID Kit module?

If you used our Anti-Flicker module and the correct bulb sizes, you shouldn't have experienced that issue.


I apologize if you experienced any issues, but our Anti-Flicker modules work on even the most troublesome CanBus systems (like the Dodge Ram)
