In trying to limit expenses, what if the lights were adjusted up a notch or so to compensate for the rake on the ram truck:thk: I live out in the country and it is dark, its a thought!!:3-startled:

It might help. I know when I put the 2" leveling kit on the front of my truck, it made a night and day difference in headlight output (pun intended :).

If you don't tow that often by all means crank them up! I did with mine and it made a difference but you will find that even that doesn't totally fix the issue. The light output from the stock lamps is horrible. A cheap upgrade is new bulbs. Members here like the new Sylvania Silverstar zXe or a little higher priced option is the PIAA Ultra Whites.

Adjustment screws?

I replaced my bulbs with Sylvania Ultra (H13 - I have the 2-bulb system, not the "quad burner") and the output is better. I would also like to raise them up a tad but I could not find the adjustment screws. No service manual on hand - Haynes has not yet published one for the 2009+ trucks...

Any help?

When I lowered the back of my truck I noticed it seemed like there was more light output in the front...

in response to the adjustment screws.. if you pop the hood, and look on the chanel on each side there should be an arrow pointing to a hole...if you look down there there should be a screw, i forget which way is which... but thoes are the adjustment screws to raise or lower the headlight aim

Put the Bilstein 5100's on the front to level it out and BAM lights are perfect...even to the point where some little cars will flash you thinking your brights are on..
