Lucky You: Dodge finally gave the Ram projector-based headlights...they forgot one thing though, the performance part of the equation. Output wise, they leave a lot to be desired. Fortunately however, the Morimoto Retro-Quik system is designed as a direct bolt-on upgrade for a big performance boost inside the headlights on all 2013+ Ram trucks.
Bi-Xenon Projectors: The most refined version of Morimoto’s very first bi-xenon projector, and it shows in their picture perfect light output. They use Morimoto’s Kuria optic clear lenses to give them a wide, intense beam pattern with a sharp and colorful cutoff line. The FX-R 3.0 version is optimized with a multi-faceted reflector bowl, curved cutoff shield, and the biggest, most reliable bi-xenon solenoid on the business. The FX-R is the biggest Morimoto projector but man are they worth it! As the biggest Morimoto distributor in North America, all projectors are tuned to perfection here in our shop.
Mounting Hardware: 100% Engineered in the US. Laser cut from automotive-grade G10 fiberglass. The Retro-Quik brackets at the heart of the kit are designed to adapt the Morimoto FX-R Bi-xenon projectors directly in place of the unsophisticated stock units. Using the original mounting holes paired with new hardware, they are the beauty behind the kit that makes it an easy install. You're welcome.
Optional HID Ballasts: Morimoto’s XB ballasts are a functional work of art. While the industrial-edge design by California native Artur Saakyan looks great from the outside, they’re packed with too much modern tech on the inside to cover it all in on place. Their DSP 3.0 circuit maximizes reliability, input and output efficiency. Their ability to warm the bulbs up to full operating intensity quickly is matched by few. Hardly are all aftermarket-HID ballasts the same, and the XB’s make that clear in most every category in our opinion.
Optional D2S HID Bulbs: Homegrown by Morimoto to out-perform any alternatives on the market when installed in projector-based headlight…and it shows. We admit the latest generation XB HID bulbs are pretty impressive when compared to other bulbs, and even older Morimoto bulbs. At the heart of the XB bulbs is their perfectly-aligned 100% Philips quartz glass capsule that houses high quality halide salts from German-supplier Messer. In our annual lux comparison test, they produced nearly the same luminosity (intensity) as the industry benchmark Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K. No, you're not seeing things here, but yes you will be seeing everything at night.
Optional Wiring Harness: As one of the most important parts in any HID lighting upgrade, don't skimp out when it comes to your wiring. It doesn't matter how good your ballasts are or how good your bulbs are, if your harness is a piece of crap, when it gives out your headlights are gonzo. The Morimoto HD Relay harness is easily worth the premium price compared to cheaper alternatives. With triple-sealed twin relays, 14ga. stranded copper wiring, over-molded fittings, and plug-n-play functionality, it will ensure everything functions properly and permanently from the original in-cabin controls. It’s easily the best headlight wire harness out there.
Optional Housing Sealant: Protection is priceless! When you're putting together a set of high-end headlights, the last thing you want is moisture in 'em the first time it rains outside. RetroRubber RetroRubber is the most effective way to make sure the original seal is fully restored. For the small price, why anybody wouldn’t prevent their new headlights from fogging up is beyond us. It’ll be the best twelve bucks you’ve ever spent.

First off the only reason i"m giving this four stars and not five is because the instructions could really use few more steps to help people get very successful results. The bracket is very well designed and for the most part is a direct fit into the stock housing. very very minor trimming is needed for the screw under the FX-R projector to fit and the trimming doesn't have to be anything perfect. Use small washers to keep the bracket even in the factory housing when installing the projector. When your putting the bracket together on the fX-R projector the screws do over lap and make sure both sides of the project are the same. If your using factory lights use alot of heat and time to get them open. I did 260 for 15-20 each time, it took about 2 hrs a lot of cussing lot of frustration and i probably baked the lights for at least an hour all together. The first light i did i didn't use as mush heat and it showed i mangled the dang things. But when you finish and get it all put together it is worth every bit of you time. Light output is amazing to say the least. Diffidently worth doing.
