upgrading to quad beam headlights

What is all involved in upgrading from the single beam headlights to the duals? I was hit in the front end pass. side last week and the insurance adjuster just came by and gave me the check. I'm already going to upgrade to the front bumper w/fogs but noticed on the estimate that he paid me for the cost of a dual beam headlight instead of the single beam that's in there now. Im thinking about going ahead and switching them both out.

the conversion will be pretty straight forward. The only issue you'll experience is that you will lose your low beam function when your high beams are on, although i am told this can be programmed out at the dealer. You can also purchase high beam splitters independently of the dealer flash.

I just did this swap. VERY SIMPLE! pm me once your ready I will tell you exacly what to do. Much better light output but that could be due to different angle on the quads from my duals.. Looks much better too! As for the loosing lows once you put on highs is right however it works fine for me, don't notice any lack in light.

These are the TYC replicas, and at 195 shipped.....well, a hell of a lot cheaper than the OEMs (which are around $400 retail). They look just like the OEMs, fit great too! I have 17 sets in stock, ready to roll.

I was looking at these yesterday while pricing my new parts. I'll be ordering a set from you in the next day or so. Dont you have the TYC foglights for the bumper as well? Im upgrading to the bumper w/ fogs and will need a set of those.

The neat part about the wiring? The Ram has 2 setups, and both have a H13 connector. The duals are an H13 bulb, so it just plugs in.

The quads use a splitter (inside the light) to split to the H11 / 9005 setup. Outside the light, H13.

On the fogs, I have those too! See here - http://shop.retroshop.us/ProductDeta...TYC-4G-FOG-Ram

I have 7 pairs ready to roll.

Shoot me an email before you order (jeremy@retroshop.us), I'll knock off a few bucks (as I can toss the fogs in the box with the heads).
