On the Ram, and most Mopar applications, you also have a smart "Buld Out" system This measures resistance, and requires that you add resistors since the HID bulbs have a lower draw, and will also flicker or turn off because the system things the bulb has failed.

Here's how I got around this. 2 resistors per each side (high beam and low beam) and I fabricated a metal box to hold the resistors and almost act as a secondary heatsink. They are mounted to one of the fog light bolts behind the front bumper where they will get a lot of good air flow to geet rid of the heat they produce, and aren't near anything that is going to melt.
