I have a 2012 ram express with the dual lights. I spent the money and bought the quads thinking that the bulbs were the same but they are not. The hole in the quads is too small for the dual bulb to fit in. I was thinking about maybe buying hids for the quad headlight and retro fiting them somehow havent figured it out yet. But to answer yalls question it is not plug and play!

The bulbs are different on the quads but at least for my 2011 the swap was plug and play. The new headlights came with bulbs and the wiring from the original dual light plugged right in to the pigtail on the quad headlight.

I have the same headlights as u, I tried the the quad headlights on my SLT and the dealer said that they would have to install and replace the single headlights for the quad headlight harness and the dealer said it would cost like $800 to install the quad headlights cuz the quad harness is like $350 a side plus labor. It's not even worth it lol. So I'm staying with my single headlights. Plus I have aftermarket black housing headlight bezels and they r bad ass lol.

that's why I've been holding off on a set from Go Recon (or the ebay version)....didn't want to go through the pain of pulling everything apart to find out it wouldn't work.

Don't expect a big difference when you go to a quad headlight. They still suck. You're better off upgrading the bulbs or going to a HID setup.

I went the cheap/easy route and just upgraded the bulbs in my fogs to HID's. They really light up the roadway now.

Soo...the quad lamp head light will plug into where the standard SLT lights were, just dont expect them to be brighter? maybe get an HID set up as well?

anyone have luck with a good HID for the standard headlamp w/DRL?

These 9011 bulbs are only for the quads correct? Anything I can do bulb wise in my duals?
