Newbie who wanted an advise
 
Hello! I'm new in this forum. I have a 2009 Ram (bought it new when the 09's arrived)and loved the truck, happy with the power and the ride except that I have a problem with the headlight; seems that it has no focus and very difficult driving it at night. I have it consulted to the dealership where they made adjustment on the headlight itself but didn't made a difference. They suggested that I have to change the bulb to a "more brighter one", I complied and bought the specified one but still the light don't have focus. It is very frustrating that I seldom use my truck specially when I drive long distance for the fear that I will be in the road driving at night. I instead use my 2008 Grand Cherokee, but the jeep carries only a small cargo. I wanted to use my truck badly...any advise?

Hello and welcome to the ForumZ ! I have the same issue with the lights on my 08. Well, they are not very bright anyways. Have you thought about trying Ultra SilverStars or even converting to HID's ?

Yes I have a picture of the truck and soon will post it when I will be familiar with the site (still figuring it out how to attach the picture). The truck don't have any modification, it looks the same when I brought it home from the dealership.

Yes I did use Silverstar H13 but not satisfying and now I'm using the H13 PIAA XTREME white plus 4000k (H13 65/55W-85/75W) still with difficulty driving at night, spring is coming and I'm afraid I will be hitting deers or moose on the road if this problem not resolved.

Hello and welcome to the forum, nice to have you here. Check the gen 4 section probably lots there. I have seen where guys have bought projector s and installed them.
when you get a chance why don't you post a picture or two of your truck.
