Took me about 20 minutes I think. I didn't have directions just Brad helpin me out a lot(thanks again man).

But how could it break while in use?

yeah i keep my stock bulbs in the glove pox just in case...

i had never seen or helped anyone do this swap, and im horrible with electrical hahaha which is why it took me so long. i would try to hook them up with different ballasts, if you still have the problem we can try swapping parts from mine over till we figure it out. but i wont be around for a few weeks at least.

Thats one of my second thoughts. I'm sure it has to be the bulb because the ballast is making the same sound it did when I installed them.

UPDATE:
Just got ahold of DDM and they are sending a new control box/harness. If that isn't the problem then I will be back

I would hedge my bet on the controller. I've had them fail before (not DDM). Can't expect too much for something manufactured by a 7yr old kid in China. I doubt you blew both lamps at once.

Yeah the odds are extremely slim if not impossible of simultaneous burn out on bulbs. I want to thank you and everyone else that gave advice and went out of there way to try to help. THANK YOU!
