Default Headlights and drop

I have a 2013 RCSB express 2wd.

I want to get black housed headlights. Spec d has what i would like but they dont make a 2013 model! Anyone have a 2013 with black housed headlights? Dont want to change bulbs or anything from stock just want them to be blacked out.

As far as the drop goes. Who dropped their truck. Can i see pictures. Kit you used and also if you would do it or not. Durability and longevity of the product!

Do you have the projector, dual, or quad style headlamps. You can upgrade to the projector style and get black housings with a simple adapter harness that JJ at Retro Shop builds. Or you can just get a set of housings painted by JJ.

I'd still talk to JJ. He carries cores of the quads and basically you buy a set directly from him, he gets the interior shroud painted whatever color you want, you have halo and projector options if you want, and then you can ship yours back to him as a core return. You're never without lights and you have lots of custom options with them.

Those will work on your 13 however those are Duals and there has been A LOT of complaints about the output of those headlights.

Probably the reason why dodge discontinued them in 2013.

Yeah I see what you are saying. The housing you want sucks. It also uses different bulbs, H13. Your current headlights use H11 for the lows and 9006 for the highs I think.

I see what your saying now! Ok. Well. How much would retro shop charge just for a set of black housings to make my truck look like that truck?
