    Headlights

    Hi All
    I have a 89 ram 50 and need new lights bad.
    Was wondering if either of these will work?
    What would you suggest?
    Thanks
    ZZ

    Are the headlights sealed units in your truck? Just changing the H4 inserts can make a difference. I've been thinking about upgrading the sealed headlights on my L200, but not going down the HID/projector style aftermarket ones. Projectors and HID's annoy me when I'm on the receiving end of someone using them - last thing I want to do is be the type of guy I complain about...

    Yep, those are sealed beam. I'm not sure if you'll need to use projector headlights in your truck (but meh, it's a personal choice thing...) but you will notice a worthwhile improvement by going up to semi-sealed headlights with H4 globes. They will straight up offer a better field of light projection, and if you blow a globe they are cheaper and easier to replace. Just be aware that there can be differences in how aftermarket H4 semi-sealed headlights fit and there can be some not-so-well made products out there.

    Probably need a higher amp alternator after replacing headlights to a more power sucking version huh? Not sure what those new headlamps pull for amps, but I sure noticed a brighter headlight when I replaced 45 amp alt to the 100 amp.
