All! Been looking at all these aftermarket headlights for the Ram. Have any of you bought and installed these. Any advice or pics would be of great help. Just so many different varieties (Halo's,euro etc.)

How much did the projectors run you all? What exactly do you mean by the bumber needs adjusted? Were they hard to install? Can you see a vast improvement night driving from the OEM headlights? Night driving now seems like i dont even have headlights.

i think mine were around 300. they arent hard to do at all. just need to tap into your park light wires for the halo and led which most projectors have. or you can run a switch for them. low beams were great. very bright. i needed to change the high beam bulb in mine then they were good.

My bumper is messed up from being in an accident when I bought it, needs to be pushed up, notice the large gap under my lights.

I ran a switch for my halos/LEDs. and yes they are very bright, I can light up ditch to ditch with the HIDs

Heres my input of headlights, I have a regular 99 5.2l dodge, (not the sport model) and I bought some projector headlights with the regular halo ring.. I Thought they looked sweet and all but i live way out in the country and I didnt like the fine line the projector cuts out of the light.. Plus if you get halo headlights GET the CCFL ones, not LED. the led rings are not bright at all.
So anyways I got regular smoked out reflector housing with 10000k HID and i really like them.

On the projector gap issue..... is this a problem with the ebay headlights, or just all branded projectors in general?

so far all projectors that i have seen. i have yet to see a unmodified clean fitting set. buddy of mine paid over 600 for his and they fit and looked the exact same as mine lol. he was a little upset.

I bought a set of euro lights for my 98 sport a while back and they now sit in a box! They threw light everywhere but on the road. My advice would be leave them stock and buy some HID lights.Then again HID's are not legal for street use.I solved my lighting issue by installing a set of Pilot fog lights. They are way brighter than stock.Just my 2c

Grill insert or bumper inserts?

The grille I had custom made, and not sure if he is going to be making them anymore.
My bumpers just have gutter grille in them


Also my projectors I picked up for $179 shipped, which at the time was cheaper than buying stock ones from the junkyard. Needed to get the one with dual plugs since I have the quad headlamp system. In the future I am looking at painting them black, or buy a set of black euro one piece to send to the Retro Shop for Jeremy to do.

*******! Yours almost look like OEM, Do you have the part# from K2. I just went to the website and did not see the ones you have. One set is close but they look like they have the projectors. Scale of 1 to 10 would everyone say this is a must have modification or should i just use some headlight restoration kit.

Thanks the One piece for $118 does not look bad or to complicated to install. Just plug n play! I think that might be the way to go. I ran into a guy the other day who had all the work projector, led etc and he said it was a pain in the ass to install. I just need something so when im going duck hunting at 4 am i dont hit a freaking deer.

My wiring for the halos/leds was pretty simple, but I have wired things before.

I love the before crash pics and after fixed. My .02 is just use stock lenses with a good quality bulb in a color you like.
