2013 Ram 1500 Headlights
 
Hey guys, new to the forum but I had been searching for info my new first ram's new headlights. The 2013 Sport has the projector headlights with seperate high and low bulbs. I took my drivers side out just to clarify bulbs types for anyone looking for the information. The low beam is a HIR2 (9012) The high beam is a 9005 Both the bulbs have the 90 degree corner on them and need to keep that as the cover on the back of the asembly will not close with a straight bulb in place of the stock ones. I took a few pictures just to provide proof of the information I am giving to everyone. Will post them once I figure out how lol

So what exactly are you wanting to do? Just swap bulbs or install HIDs? Several of us have done the HID swap with bulbs from Retroshop and they work just fine.

I am intending on putting HID lights for the low beams and fog lights..... The purpose of this post was for anyone looking for information on the new 2013 projector headlights. What bulbs are used and just a view of the back of the assembly.

New here and first post. I have a 2013 Ram 2500 Laramie. Will this HID lighting upgrade work or fit my truck?

suckie69 05-05-2013 10:20 PM

It should work, assuming that you have the new 2013 headlights with the projector lamps? If you have the new headlights then the kits listed should work as you will have the HIR2 (9012) bulb for low beam and the 9011 and the 9006 for the fog lights. If you have the older style of headlights then these kits will not work, According the Sylvania's website the low beam in these headlights is a H11 bulb and the high beam is the 9005 and the fog lights are a 9006 I believe. I cannot confirm this information but im pretty sure its acurate, maybe someone with more experience on these trucks can correct me if im wrong. Easier way to make sure the kits will work if you have the new lights is to pop one of the headlight assembly's out and see if there is only 1 wire entering the housing, if there is only one wire entering the houseing then you have the new lights and the kits will work.
