Warning, the DDM Kit ships from China. They don't disclose that on their website. I'm not too thrilled about that at all.

They only took 1 week to get to me from China, either way all these hid kits come from China one way or another.

DDM kits are very reliable. My last kit was 6 years old and never had a single problem with it ('08 WK).

Best $40 I ever spent on my WK.

I ended up installing Morimoto bulbs and ballasts with the Diode Dynamics canbus. Stared at them for 10 minutes and no flicker. I will probably use the DDM kit on the fogs. Cutoff was okay but I lowered them a bit just in case.

SkunkD, Did you ever get the light kit in? I'm counting on your install for my 15 ALT also.

I haven't yet gotta run to harbor freight for the step bit to drill the dust caps. Dabitz looks good! There is some warm weather this week so I'll try my best to get to them if I'm not too busy with work.

Re: 2015 Altitude HID kit conversion HELP

I was not able to re use the dust caps on the Eagle Eyes headlamps, no biggie, a bigger whole on the cap would have rendered them useless anyway. I did everything from the top, no need to remove the bumper.

I don't have a link for the Morimoto stuff because I ordered at cost through a friend who is a distributor, but here is what I'm running... sourced from the The Retrofit Source:

H11: Morimoto Elite HID System 1
HID Ballasts
2 x Morimoto XB35 (35W)
Ballast Igniters
2 x Morimoto XB Igniter (AMP)
Compatible HID Bulbs
2 x H11: XB35 5500K
Harness

This is the Diode Dynamics antiflicker (Canbus) that works with 2015 and up, US manufactured:
CANBUS Anti-Flicker Module (pair) - HID Accessories - HID Lighting - All Products You should be able to use this with any HID kit.

I see the last item on your list is "harness." Is this just a generic relay harness, or something mopar specific? Good to know the diode dynamics anti flicker module works with any ballast. I am using the hyluxtek canbus ballast they include in the kit and am very impressed with the fast warmup time.

I don't think anyone has installed them yet. I am confident they will work fine. If you can't stand to wait order the diode dynamics kit. It is more expensive (maybe higher quality ballast and bulbs?) but I have about 6 months on my kit and it works perfectly.

I was just looking around on there site and couldn't find a complete kit? only for fog. would that be the same for the lows since they are both H11 bulbs? I did order xenon depo and canceled the order today bc it hasn't shipped yet. I'm new to the forum and being looking around and found xenon depo will not work on our 2015
