Default Stock headlight bulbs

Hi all, new to the club

I was wondering what brand are the stock headlight bulbs for the quad lamp? I know they are H11/9006 but I am unaware of the brand. I find that the high beams are terrible and I would like to replace. If anyone knows the stock wattages that would also be great to know.

Anyone have any suggestions for replacing the stock bulbs? I was thinking about getting Xtreme Whites by PIAA but I can't find them anywhere for sale in Ontario. I can buy them off ebay but I am not sure I want to buy expensive bulbs and have them sent in the mail.

Thanks for your input
-Greg

All the stock bulbs from my 2012 RAM 1500 were Phillips bulbs and low beam is a H11 with 55 watt bulb.high beam is a 9005 bulb with 65 watt bulb.and fogs are an H10 with 45 watt bulb. i know because i have all of them in my door panel so i went outside and checked for you. lol. i replaced all my low.high. and fog light bulbs with HID's.BEST WAY TO GO!!

lol. tell you the truth i was looking into that already.lol. i dont think im going to do it thou. ive been reading thru alot of threads and found alot of good info but for the time being not really planning on it. tell you the truth i was sitting down looking at my truck the other day and i think i only have about 4 mods left to do on it and ill be happy enough to stop.

i have...
bass
screens
alarm with remote start
tint
train horn
semi retroed lights.lol.
leds everywhere.
hid's
blacked out tails

so i think all im really missing that i actually want are...
black 26's!!!
black side steps
tonneau cover
and maybe a CAI.

Hahaha hey man thats what you think then youll find more stuff you want! but i know what you mean. im going to be stopping here for a little bit, and save up for a big mod instead! but tonneau cover is really handy, and CAI is definitely worth it too.

HAHAHA yea man thats exactly what i was thinking as i was typing that last message.lol. but yea i really like the bakflip vp tonneau cover and i think it sells for aroun 680.not sure if thats a good price or not since i dont know much about that type of thing but seems fair. and today i saw a CAI i really liked its made by s and b i think it was.looks good and completly enclosed with a cleat plexi glass top so you can see thru it.hey for these rims im wanting to get the the tires i want also it requires i get a 2.5 inch leveling kit to lift my front end up. any recommendations for that?? rims will be 26" and tires im wanting 315/40/26. another member here has already done it so i know it can be done.but he hardly ever gets on and hasnt ever replied to anything ive asked.lol.

Ive heard of lots of guys liking the VP and the s&b intake actually so id have to say good choice lol ive never used them though. i have a Bakflip HD and i love it.

for the levelling kit, it depends on how much you want to spend, I put in a 2.5inch hellbent steel levelling kit, it was only $80 and works great, and you can easily do it yourself, and once you get it on just get an alignment.

Or if you want to spend a few more bucks you could get bilstein height adjustable shocks, they will run you a couple hundred (if you can find em in stock) and then you can either do em yourself by buying/renting/borrowing a shock compressor or have a shop do it.

Ive heard that you can just take out your strut into like canadian tire and they have a shock compressor and for $80 or something they have put the new shock into the strut, and give it back to you, but that im not to sure of,
