Default replaces crappy stock headlights...

ok so i got the new ram sport and i love it... but after spending all that money you would think they would put descent headlights in.. and the windshield wipers were crap as well.. anyway i bought some PIAA's and before I dig in I just want to know if anyone has attempted to change the bulbs yet? The last thing I want to do is break something when its not even a week old lol

Ok, before this topic gets cornier than saskatchewan... you could always upgrade to a set of HIDs and put some real light onto the road... AAC does have their Black Friday phone-in sale

ok so i am beyond pissed right now... so i went outside to swap headlight bulbs and throw some mud flaps on and my god.... looking at the instructions posted above i thought it might be easy.. so i went to change them and holy crap do you really need to take apart the freakin front end to do this????? i went to the dealership n they told me their "trained tech's" take 45minutes to do it with all the right tools... WHY CAN'T DODGE MAKE IT SIMPLE??????????????
i know lots of you have changed them and its not impossible but what happens if for some reason your bulbs burn out at night... you can't take your truck apart on the side of the road.... every other vehicle manufacturer can produce a truck that takes 2 seconds to change bulbs incase of emergency.... anyways this is more of a rant than anything... i did my best to not swear but holy @%#%$@#% the words that are going through my head right now that could describe how i feel about the engineers at dodge right now!!! other than that nice truck... someone come change my headlights for my and put on my mudflaps lol
