Disclaimer: Modify your vehicle at your own risk.


To complete the installation of 2013 Ram LED tail lights into a 2009-2012 truck, you will need the following:
1.) LED Tails – Available from Mopar Online Parts, who sponsored this writeup.
Sport LED Tails P/N’s: 68093080AB and 68093081AB (pictured below)
Premium (Laramie) LED Tails P/N’s: 68093078AB and 68093079AB

2.) LED Tail Pigtail Wiring Harness –Available from Mopar Online Parts.
P/N 5013984AA – QTY 2

3.) LED Load Resistors (Various Suppliers).
50W6OHM Resistors – QTY 2

4.) EV6 Male Connectors – Available from InjectorRX (
Bosch EV6 Male Connector – QTY 2

5.) H13/9008 Male Pigtails – Available from Autolumination (
Male Pigtail – QTY 2

6.) Approximately 2’ of 16ga insulated stranded automotive wire.


The following parts are optional, and not required. You may choose to use these depending on your preference.
1.) LED Tail Pigtail Wiring Harness (Junkyard)
This harness is the same harness that was used on the ’98-’03 Durango, ’04-’09 Durango, ’96-’00 Caravan/Voyager, and potentially others. Be sure to get as much wiring as you can from the donor vehicle – at least 6 inches or more.

2.) Aluminum Plate
LED Load Resistors can get hot, it is recommended you mount them to a metal surface. I chose to mount the LED Resistor to an aluminum plate, which I mounted to the truck. Aluminum is a far better heat sink than steel.
