'05 headlights- relay failure

I replaced the stock lights in my 2000 F-350 about a year ago... first issue I've had is today, seems the relay for the low beams went bad... I used the relay harness sold by GOS racing... Just wondering if meny others have had simular problems...

I took the relay apart, it's burned inside... the contacts are pitted and mostly gone. No damage to the wiring harness and connector.

Guess I'm drivin' home on low beams tonight... I swapped the good high beam relay for the bad low beam one...
