You can plug the DRLs in according to the instructions, or over a separate switch.
I'm hooking mine up according to the instruction, but through a relay run by one of the auxiliary switches.
That's so I have DLRs when I want to, and only when I want to.

Almost anything is better than the stock headlights.
I think a posted a photo of the light output of mine earlier. They weren't aimed correctly, but definitely bright.
And, yes, disconnect the old lights, plug in the new ones, aim them and go.

|PUREVIL||Im really interested in this lights for my 2012 3500... is the performance really that much better than the stock halogens? Is it truly plug and play? What if i dont have DRL's im assuming if i wanted to wire them up to run DRL's id have to get creative? Lastly has anyone paired them with the fog lights they sell how good are those?|

Loki, I had a really nice Aluminess bumper. Figured that if I had a decent bumper, the deer and elk wouldn't get in my way.
The theory worked, and I never hit anything.
But the mileage took a huge hit. I recreated what was missing of the stock bumper below the Aluminess, and that helped a lot.

That year truck will throw a turn signal out error with hyperflash on the EVIC, although all the turn signals will be working and flashing normally. It can be fixed with AlfaOBD or 6ohm 50w resistors. At the time, they were only compatible for quad headlight trucks, so I built some adapter harnesses for mine, then called Alpharex (the manufacturer) and talked about them offering adapters for those with projector headlight trucks. They sent me a pic of what they made, and by the time I noticed they forgot to add the dedicated DRL wire in the adapters, they already had batches made up, so I donít know if theyíll get around to adding that. This would only affect those that want to enable the DRLs using AlfaOBD, otherwise, the included DRL fuse tap harness can be used.
I heavily modified mine because only the upper strip was used for DRLs, the turn signal wasnít sequential, and the black bezels kind of clashed with my truck. I completely gutted them, ripped out the upper and lower LED boards and drivers, and replaced them with sequential switchback strips, and rewired everything to work how I wanted it. I painted the bezels max steel, and kept the shrouds chrome. The low beam projectors have a fixed cutoff shield, so they donít drop when the high beams are switched on. I had some Morimoto d2s minis collecting dust, so I fabbed those in to fit for the low beam projectors. The cutoff lines and beam width/pattern are pretty much identical between the projectors that came with and the d2s minis, but I stuck with the d2s just because I had them, and I could have shields that dropped with the high beams. Iím using the innovited 35w H7 HID kit for the lows, and some off brand $29 Amazon H7 LEDs for the highs.
OF COURSE, after I did all this, they released a new G2 version for $455, that pretty much mimics everything I just did, and they also have smoked upper and lower LED strips. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-G2-He...29b0%7Ciid%3A1
