Default Headlights Seem Dim

The headlights on my truck don't seem very bright. They are the OEM headlights Compared to the wife's Nitro which also has OEM headlights that seem to be twice as bright. I'm not sure of the wattage and that may be the difference. It almost appears that they have more glare than shine.

4th gen rams are notorious for dim headlights. I upgraded to hids in heads and fogs. Night and day differance. Especially on back roads which im guessin u have in your area

The stock headlights are pitiful. Re-aiming helps a lot. I did it at night, put a towel over one and adjust the other one, switch and do the other one. Helped a lot, but still pitiful.
