I am confused. You have a Laramie correct?

You should have at least the Bi-Halogen projector headlamps and LED tail lamps.

If you are wanting to upgrade your headlight bulbs to HID there are many options for you to do so.

I'm with Arth on this one. If you have a Laramie then you should have the projectors already, and to add HIDs it's pretty straight forward.

Sorry as I wasn't clear. I am trying to change the look to black or gloss black from factory. Is there a particular brand other members can recommend? I know there is a lot of choices, just trying figure out a good brand that members are happy with.

Ok, now we're on the same page. There's nothing available for the projectors in the aftermarket yet that replaces the entire housing, however, there is a guy who opens the oem housings, paints them whatever color you want, can upgrade the projectors as well, then seals them back up. His name is JJ with retroshop .us and he does good work. Both Arth and I have dealt with him in the recent past and he's a good guy.

I agree. I am currently getting an order filled through JJ to get the projector inside these 2013 headlights upgraded. I will create a thread with my review after I get them back.

Currently, as said above, that is the only way to "upgrade" your headlight unless you want to just add some HID's.

He does some great work and I recommend you check out his site.

If you just want your existing headlights painted black, pull'em apart and paint them! It's not a LOT of work, but it is tricky.
An oven, a baking sheet, an old towel and a couple of flat blade screwdrivers.

Don't forget the balls to pull apart $900 worth of headlight.
