    Finally did the BHLM and now can't figure out the final wiring. Have the TRS relay harness and most of it is labeled for dummies like me. Can't figure out how the splitter works? The RX has the ignitor that attaches directly to the bulb and then the connection from the solenoid. Not sure what wire to hook to the solenoid, OEM high beam? But if so then why the splitter?

    Solenoid ---> 9003 connector----> high beam splitter. (Other end of high beam splitter goes into stock high beam bucket)

    Thanks, this is weird, sitting in my garage trying to figure this out when the postman drops off my most recent meso mod and then this. Thanks meso, but if one end of the splitter goes to the solenoid connector, one to the high beam bucket, your saying that the third end then plugs into oem high beam connector on truck. The splitter is not ever connected to the relay harness with the HID lights.

    Yes, high beam connector from the truck gives the highbeam 12v to light up and activates the solenoid on the HID projector which drops the shield in the projector providing the high beam funtion.

    Cool, so last question for my dumbass, I promise. So I could just connect the truck oem to the solenoid and be done. The purpose of the splitter is to have lights in the high beam bucket in addition, isn't the RX shield dropping is also high beam?

    Yes and yes. You also dont really need the Morimoto Harness, just a H11 to 9006 adapter.
