Default Are all 2010 RAM Puddle Lights "LEDs" or just the sport models?

Ok, the issue here is that I had a seal problem with my driver's side puddle light where water got inside. Other members on here have had the same issue and the dealer replaced the entire mirror. The dealer just replaced mine as well but after I got home I noticed that the puddle light lighting is a plain white, whereas it was a nice blueish/white light before and my passenger side light is the blueish/white light. I read that those puddle lights in many trucks are already LEDs which would make sense as they looked nice.

Before I call the dealer back though, I'm just curious if all 2010 models are the blueish/white leds and the dealer just ordered a similiar part for a different year by mistake or if just the R/Ts or do other sport models have the led puddle lights?

I just noticed driving at night that the new replacement mirror also is NOT auto-dim as is my passenger's side mirror and rear view mirror. I can say from experience that having all three mirrors auto-dim is one of the best features there is. All the people who drive with their brights on get totally dimmed out smoothly with the mirrors so I'm guessing the standard 2010 mirrors not only don't have LEDs...they also don't have auto-dimming side mirrors either. I'll call tomorrow to set up an appt. to get the correct mirror installed.

Both of my puddle lights are LED with the blue tint to them. I would give them a call because it would both me everytime I opened the doors at night!

It looks like you both (JF, and Timmy) have a special edition Ram too with the Big Horn so I'm guessing that just the specialized editions, R/T, LARAMIE, BIG HORN, etc...have the auto-dim and blue-led puddle light features. The blue light definitely makes a difference as it not only looks nice, but I have good quality HID Headlight and Fog lights with the same blueish white color so it looks even more off with the plain, dull, white light. The auto-dim feature is even nicer as my last vehicle was a Charger and it had an auto-dim rear view mirror but if someone had their brights on behind you, it would be blinding through the side mirrors. That problem is totally resolved with the auto-dim side mirrors, but as I mentioned this mirror they gave me doesn't have the auto-dim feature either. I've already called the dealer, let them know the issue and they are ordering the correct mirror which they'll have in next week to finally get this resolved.

My truck has auto dim mirrors but I disconnected that feature. I do not like my side view mirrors auto dimming. I have dark tint so it's not needed.
