LED Headlights

Post by 2Rowdy » Tue Jun 02, 2020 6:14 pm

Has anyone found a good LED headlight replacement or bulb swap? I would like to upgrade the headlights and fogs. I used the search feature and didn't really come up with anything.

I have been looking at the same thing. I have the projector headlights and I am trying to decide between HID and LED.

I would love to hear what everyone here is using.

I got my LEDs from here for my 3G. Big difference. :rockon:

I appreciate the response. Those Morimoto's sure look nice but I'm not ready to drop $1350.00 for headlights.

5k HID low and high. LED might be better in your area for high beams. Got them from HR. Impressive difference with nice sharp easy to aim cutoff from the OEM projectors.

6 months is too short a timeframe for reliability report however, so other than they still work I can't provide much.

I purchased the Morimoto 3pk on Amazone and am kinda excited. The install was easy-ish and is "Plug-n-Play". I got the dark lenses and it transforms the PW's appearance. I have all that Laramie chrome badging/wheels/bumpers/steps and it''s all toned down now w/o oem lights. Truck is Black Forest Green. I will post a pic when fogs r installed. They were damaged. :patriot:

So the "Rear lamp fail" showed on dash while driving today. I called corporate and the rear lamps won't work on '15+ Rams cause OEM lamps are led. :angry:

... but said projector lamp replacement will be trouble free. FYI

Odd, my aftermarket LED taillights/BU lighs haven't been any problem. I also went just LED replacement bulbs on the fogs rather than the full mori-moto with no issues. Saving up for their heidlgiths though.
