    If you are getting the bi-xenon hi-lows, it comes with everything you need, including the harness, without adding anything else to your cart.

    Which kit are you ordering?

    HID Harness: (I would purchase this if you're gonna use the HID kit on an ATV. If you get a Hi/Low kit, it comes with the HID harness)
    Use this relay harness to connect HIDs to cars with very small gauge wiring that cannot supply the initial surge current required to light the bulbs reliably. Symptoms indicating the harness is required would be intermittent starting or lights going out after being turned on for several minutes and requiring you to turn the lights off and back on for them to turn back on again.

    Recommended for all 55W HID installations but most American and European cars work at 35W/55W without the harness. The harness is definitely recommended for Quad's and other ATVs or when running multiple HID installations. This harness is a fused relay isolation harness capable of supplying 20A at 12vdc.

    Error Code Eliminator: (Not needed on out trucks b/c we don't have a headlight out indicator light)
    Some cars will generate a bulb out warning message or even turn the headlight/foglights off when connecting HID to them. Our cancellation modules fool the computer in the car and allow the HIDs to work flawlessly

    Adaptor Cables: (Our trucks run H4 headlight bulbs, and H10 fogs. Tacoma's don't have a DS2 bulb).
    Accessory cables to connect general purpose HID ballasts to D2S Bulbs

    Short answer: No.

    Everything you need for the install is included, at least it was when i put them in about 4 month ago

    DDM tuning does explain what it is in the product description. That's where I got all the info.
