Great looking set up. I just got back from the SEMA show in Vegas and talked to a SPEC-D rep about their line of LED retrofit headlights and tail lights. Right now I'm looking at the various brands, trying to figure out which ones are crap and which ones have excellent quality. I know 99% of them are made in China so its going to be difficult. But, that's the way it is so like everyone else I have to find a set that matches my Mineral Gray 05 Dodge Ram Hemi. I think I'll go with a chrome look because that is what the stock headlight shows the most of. I don't want the chrome look for the tail lights because they look cheap.

I really like what you have done, not only the headlights but also the hood upgrade. This is something else I've been looking at and thought up until now the SRT-10 hood would look best, but now that I saw your double hood scope set up I'm reconsidering. That's because the SRT10 look can look bulky with the big hood scope on top whereas yours is more low profile. Another issue is finding an aftermarket brand that is a direct fit without problems.

Would you mind stating the brand of your hood and headlights? If anyone else is reading this and also retrofitted head and tail lights on a mineral gray Ram circa 04-05 year I would appreciate contact with advise and/or pictures.
