I haven't adjusted my headlights yet but will be soon now that the sun is going down earlier. I haven't had anyone hit me with their high beams yet but I can tell they are a little too high.

I installed the 5100s at 2.1 on Thursday. They give the RAM the perfect look that I was going for. Thanks for all the advise.

Install went very smooth except for when I backed out of the garage and accidentally tore the XM satellite antenna off the top of the truck! Ouch.

My question is regarding the alignment. I have not got one yet but my truck runs straight without any pull even at 70 mph on a straight away. Do I really need an alignment? I have noticed the steering is a little tighter but I actually like it better.

Yes you need an alignment, no question. It doesn't matter if it's going straight or not. Your tires will be toe'd in and have negative camber which will cause your tires to wear uneven and prematurely.

Thanks for the reply. On my to do list today.

Update: got the alignment done and WOW I didnt realize how much of a difference it makes in the smoothness of the ride. Thanks for telling me to get it done!
