quad headlights
 
i have a 2011 ram 1500 SLT was wanting to go with the quad headlights as the SLT does not come with them . my question is the wiring harness set up for quad headlights ? thanks for any help just don't want to pull the grill then find out that it's not :LOL:

Sorry...I haven't looked at the harness on your generation truck.

As a general rule of thumb, to cut costs, they don't generally have two harnesses for specific options. They tend to standardize and if an option needs two plugs, there are two plugs on the harness. If an option only needs one plug, it uses one of the two that are present.

my 2011 SLT Outdoorsman came with the quad headlights... That just means you have a separate bulb for highs and lows right?

Yep..that's right vs. having a dual filament bulb in one capsule.

FYI: Retrofit Headlamp Bulb Suggestion for Quad Headlamps from Daniel Stern - This improved the stock lighting on my 2011 Power Wagon tremendously.

The best low beam bulb you can install is http://store.candlepower.com/bconibr90ulh5.html which has a higher-luminance filament that should improve matters.

If you want to upgrade the high beams, go to your local Chevrolet dealer (or
www.gmpartsdirect.com for a better price) and pick up two part number 15094219. That is a 9011 bulb. They are not some tinted or overwattage version of 9005, but share the identical filament geometry and base architecture as well as the same power consumption.

Here's the comparison:

stock: 9005, 12.8V, 65W, 1700 lumens, 320 hours
new: 9011, 12.8V, 65W, 2530 lumens, 320 hours

The 9011 bulbs have a double-wide top ear on the plastic bulb base, this is to comply with the law requiring different bulbs to have different bases.
The extra-wide plastic top ear is easily trimmed or filed to make the bulb fit your headlamp's bulb receptacle. Once that's done, they go directly into the headlamp, and the existing sockets snap on. Please see
http://dastern.torque.net/Mods/HIRmod.html for details.

I followed the suggestions above to impove the lighting on my quad headlights.

There is quite a difference in the light output and the install was very easy.

Thanks aquaman1945 for the information, it was very helpful.

Any updates on the quad headlamp upgrade? I'm looking to do the same thing. My single lamps are terrible.
