That's the one I used and went from there. You'll have to feel around in the fenderwell to find the tab and pull upward, then push on the headlight to pop it out. One note before you do this, take some masking tape (painters tape) and cover your painted areas around the headlight. This saves on scratches!

I also had to pull the screws for the grille to loosen it enough to get to the lower headlight screw.

It can be done, but it sure could be easier if the engineers had designed this better. No wonder the trucks cost so much! My 94, 98, and 03 Ram's were so easy.

Congrats! This is definitely a job a parts store won't do. Did you get the backup bulbs also? Enjoy!

No, didn't do backup bulbs yet, want to see what these look like first in the dark. Read some posts on here saying the silverstars sucked and other loved them. I put the headlights on but of course impossible to tell until this evening.

Great minds think alike! I just put silver starts in my 10 Laramie. I found out I had to remove the grille to re-install (pain in the neck). But they are in.

They're a big improvement over the oem bulbs, even though they are Sylvania bulbs also. Much brighter and whiter. They run at the right temp to keep from looking all blue.
