Headlights - are there stock quad projector assemblies available to replace duals?
 
Hi - I have read the threads about customizing an existing dual or quad headlight halogen assemblies to projector and really don't want to chance messing them up (when i was younger I would have done it-lol).

What I really want to do is change my current dual halogen to quad projectors on my RAM 2500 SLT.

Are complete replacement assemblies available (plug and play)? Recently I have seen what looks like factory quads on a few RAM 3500's and they look like just what I'd want to install. Are there any after market available? Are quad or dual projector assemblies available from a Dodge dealer to replace my halogen duals?

Sure do value the input from all of you - it has been very helpful.
Thanks,
Ron

I haven't seen any factory projector headlights for the rams. But from what I've seen if you go with projector style headlight you will want to upgrade to HID. The output beam of the projector is too narrow for halogen to work properly.

Only plug and play projector type headlights are from recon and spyder go with spyder same as recon only cheaper

Interesting about the projector vs the HID - guess I am getting them confused and thought they were the same. Now I just don't know what to do to get brighter and better coverage than my stock dual halogen headlights.

55W HIDs from ****************! Even without projectors the lighting is Amazing

Looks like I'm going to go with Retro Shop - Jeremy's solution using the 55W 4300 Digital Kit. Although pricy, sure seems to be the solution I have been looking for.

Would you suggest I have the dealer aim my current headlights before replacing the cores with the retros? They will do the re-aiming at no cost to me.

Thanks - Ron

In my experience, I had to adjust the lights considerably after putting in the HIDs even though they were well aimed prior to install.

Putting hid's in stock headlights gives you way to much scatter hence the flashing of oncoming cars projectors and hid's = win win

If your replacing why would you re aim them and are you getting new headlights from jj with or with out projectors if you get the projectors the hole you use to adjust stock headlights wont work anymore

I haven't been flashed yet :4-dontknow:

I dont understand why the stock housing would give more scatter than any other bulb. It's just more light, the reflector is the same so the pattern is the same. Although it does make sense that projectors would be more focused
