HID in 2013+ factory projector lights

Has anyone upgraded the lights in the new style projector headlights? If so what did they use and any issues?

For the 13+ the CAN BUS system is very picky. As far as the HIDs themselves, I tried to be cheap and bought a kit off eBay and it gave me nothing but problems. I have heard of a guy off a different forum that specializes with HIDs. His website is retroshop.us . I've heard nothing but great stuff about his products as well as customer service. But to be able to use the factory projector headlamps I'm pretty sure you need to get a harness that goes from your current headlamp harness to the new projector headlamp. If you go on his website, he can answer any questions that you have

How much did they run you? I had a shop tell me $500 for heads and fogs and they would have to disconnect my fuse box for an hour or something.

I have 6K HIDs from Down South Kustoms in my factory projectors and fogs. Best kits out there for our Rams. They work flawlessly and are plug and play. No extra stuff needed with their kits. A lot of guys are buying off them. They go for $160 a kit or $175 for the dual filament bulbs (high/low) and come with a 3yr warranty.

Which error cancelers do I need for the headlights and do I need a kit for the fogs too?
