Hey guys!

If you have an aftermarket headlight setup, post a pic in the thread if you don’t mind! I’m looking into options to see what looks good!

Thanks in advance!

Not aftermarket, just modified stock.
Clear marker lenses and upgraded LED halos, but not with the LED board kits that are out there.

Can you share what you did to get your LED halos so bright? You said you didn't use a board kit. I don't like the idea of having to open up the headlight housing to replace the boards. Very disappointed RAM didn't make these brighter and make them the dedicated daytime running lamps that are on so many less expensive vehicle.

So I still had to open the headlights up. I put high output led strips from FlexFire in where the factory light tubes live. I made a wiring loom for them and wired them to come on anytime the ignition was on.

And yes, it was a major missed opportunity not to make them bright as a Charger from the factory.

How hard is it to open them up? I know you have to heat them up in an oven to soften the glue they use. Have you had a problem with them leaking or sweating when you glued them back together?

These headlights use Permaseal so heating them doesn't work. These headlights have to be cut open, its not for the faint of heart. lol!!

Do you have a pic that's not so blurry of your side marker tint? Did you cut those yourself? I can't find any pre-cut tint for the side marker lights.
See if this one will be clearer. I got the truck with 10k miles on it. The previous owner blacked it all out

The headlights do not have to be cut open. I've used a heat gun combined with various cold glue tools to open multiple sets of Ram headlights. All sets have been working flawlessly for years. An oven would also work in place of a heat gun. But, you have to know what you're doing with the cold glue tools.

Factory midline LED headlights, custom paint to match interior, removed amber reflectors and replaced with tinted versions, DD RGBW boards.
