One of the problems with creating brighter lights using filament type bulbs, like the I/R halogens in the 2013 rams is that increasing brightness with a filament means more heat. More heat means melt-city in the plastic housings the bulbs are mounted in. That is why HIDs are so popular because they create higher light output w/o creating more heat. In fact, I am told HIDs run cooler per watt of power used. I am curious why Ram did not use this type of lighting in these trucks. I am sold on HIDs.
