Granted I only drive a 6.0 but there is a relay and harness with mine. They are fully plug and play just with extra cabling and a relay box. Maybe the 6.4's are different.

If you want I can go uncoil all the cable and take pics of my kit. It should be close since I believe the 08's run the same bulbs as the 6L's and the focus etc.
