From looking at your pic your wiring should go
White, Black, Red looking from Left to right

Okay I am stupid or not understanding, take which wires, and put them where? The wires out of the blue plug, and move them to where. I see one white one, an orange one, and a blue one. Which goes where. Glad I didn't mess up and get a crappy kit but still isn't working. Its a little cold outside so I haven't been messing with it this late, but I will be tomorrow, so in the best way possible explain to me what I need to remove, shoot if you could just take paint and show me what goes to where I don't care I just don't understand white black red, when there isnt a white black red. Which are which.

By the way guys I really appreciate the help, this is bugging me so bad. Almost as bad as my Over Drive Light that comes on when I start the truck, but not quiet as bad.

you need to move the wires in the blue connector to this order

Thanks, will do tomorrow, and let you know. Is there a trick to removing those prongs with breaking them? I've never attempted this before?

Thanks Casper this worked great, except it wasn't exactly in the right order. I had a little trouble with the connectors, just threw it out, and went to advanced, bought me some prongs, and black tape, taped her up real good, I fooled around till I got it so the brights were the brights, and the dims were the dims.

Whilst driving however I do notice that one of the lights is displacing a black shadow look to it, is this dirt on the light, or maybe its just a shadow off something?

Where you not able to remove the wires from the connector? I'm having the same problem with my kit and I would like to fix it promptly!

Ok I'll give them a tug. If they rip, could I find replacement connectors at the local parts store? Not the blue connector, just the metal connectors that are soldered to the wire.

I think thats just a side effect of the placement of the dual bulbs, because my hi/low kit has has a weird beam pattern since I got it. I'm soon to be done with that noise though.

Grr. The wires ripped so I resorted to splicing the wires and my dual beam HID's work flawlessly plus I can use my fog light HID's. Thanks for the info Casper!!

Mine ripped. I bought the little prongs from autozone and plugged them in, and wrapped it tightly in black tape. Works great.

Ok guys I have another problem. When my light's are on dim, the right light is on dim but the left light is on bright. When my light's are on bright, the right light is on bright and the left light is on dim. Any suggestions? Sounds like a wiring issue maybe? Thanks in advance!!

swap the wires to the bulbs on the left. Problem solved. I wired mine up backwards on one side at first when I did mine.
