Default Quad Headlights

I just bought a new 2012 Ram Express, Fire Red, and the only thing on the truck that isn't like I initially wanted are the headlights. I've seen some trucks that come with the "Quad Headlight" and they look amazing. Has anyone done a change over? Do the Dual Element headlights only have one connection for the headlights? Another reason I like the Quad is that I'd like the ability to go HID down the road, as I've heard that the factory lights leave something to be desired!.... Thanks in advance for your help!

Welcome to the forumZ
If you are able to find a set of quads, its plug and play and fits just like your duals do

If you're planning on doing HIDs I'd suggest buying projectors instead of the quads. Projectors in the look great. Some prefer them. You'll also have much better cut offs and coverage with projectors.

I'd like to install projectors, but I like the quality of OEM lighting better, I've never had good luck with aftermarker lenses. How hard is it to install the projectors in the OEM Quads?

And thanks for the Welcome! This is my first new vehicle. I traded in a 2004 Cadillac CTS and 2000 Silverado regular cab, v6 barebone truck in to get it.

You like the OEM lighting...?
This is one of the poor aspects of the Ram and the reason why many put HIDs or swap the bulbs out.
Hit up ************* and speak with Jeremy, he can set you up with pricing as to what you need and how to do it

I do. It arrived the other day.
Need to purchase wiring to connect it all together
But it's raining here, so I can't attempt to do this
