A Complete Buying Guide on Dodge Ram Headlights

Don’t let your Dodge Ram get left in the dark when it comes to staying on top of the competition. Dull or yellowed-out lights can make your truck look old and outdated.

If you’ve been on the fence about upgrading your Dodge Ram’s lighting look with better, brighter headlights, you’ve come to the right place! Now is the perfect time to kick your truck’s aesthetic up a notch.

Read on for some important things to consider when you’re ready to replace your Ram’s stock Halogen headlights with a new, aftermarket look that’s sure to make your ride the envy of everyone else on the road.

Things to Consider Before Buying

  • When you’re shopping for new Dodge Ram headlights, you want to make sure you choose a newer model that will give you the brightness you desire without blinding oncoming traffic.
  • Quality is key when choosing new headlights for your ride. Don’t blindly go with just any manufacturer—only a reputable, experienced source should be trusted with your purchase.
    • After all, headlights aren’t about just looking good and shining brightly—you need top quality, reliable products that will keep you—as well as everyone else on the road—safe during your travels.
  • Consider your investment wisely. Are you paying for what’s on-trend, or for long-lasting, efficient headlights that will be in it for the long haul?
  • Think about the installation process. Are you planning to install the headlights yourself? If so, be on the lookout for a headlight kit that is not only compatible with your Ram, but also boasts an installation process that is on par with your experience level, as well as the amount of time you’re able and willing to spend on making the switch.

LED and HID Headlight Features

Undoubtedly one of the top reasons drivers choose to upgrade their vehicle’s headlights is to get rid of older, outdated lights that have likely dimmed considerably over time in favor of a more brilliant shine on the road ahead. Not only do newer headlights look better, but they perform better, too.

LED (Light-Emitting Diode) headlights provide numerous appealing features. LED headlights, as with all LED bulbs, are long-lasting and energy-efficient. Switching out older headlights for new LED bulbs on your Dodge Ram means a major shift in better and brighter output than the predecessor.

  • You will save plenty of time, money, and patience by swapping your yellow lights for a fresher, brighter LED look.
  • Many LED bulbs last up to 50,000 hours, which is approximately 25 times longer than the stock Halogen versions.

HID (High-Intensity Discharge) headlights, also known as Xenon gas bulbs, also offer a much more brilliant, pure shine that older Halogen bulbs.

  • HID headlights are also much brighter and whiter than Halogen bulbs, projecting a more brilliant, pure output on the road in front of your Ram.
  • HID bulbs are often brighter than LED bulbs, but they aren’t quite as long-lasting—usually around 10,000 hours or more, depending on the specific model you choose.
