I had HIDs in my Dakota and the Rebels lights are plenty bright. I might still get them because driving back roads in the summer and fall is scary with all the deer around me.

The headlights in my 2012 Ram 1500 sucked! I had to have my driving lights on all the time and high beams whenever possible. Very poor design.

I like the headlights in the Rebel. I can finally see without having to use the driving lights all the time. The high beams are extremely bright and really light up the back roads I travel on a daily basis.

I did notice one thing about the driving lights I didn't like. When using the driving lights they are brighter than the headlights and it almost has a two-tone effect with the different brightness es between the low beams and the driving lights. Another thing I noticed that I think Dodge might have dropped the ball on is there is no lens cover over the driving lights. It seems to me that they should have a similar lens cover as the headlights. It just looks like something is missing when you look at the front and see the driving lights sticking out the way they do and than you look up and see a tinted lense cover over the headlights.... Just my 2 cents.

If anyone is looking for affordable HIDs with a life time warrenty. Check out ddmtuning.com. i have been using them for about 7years and variouse vehicles... i have had issues with the lights but they never give me a hard time with warrenty. And they are realy cheap $30 for 35w kit

On the 2016 model year do the projector lights operate both high and low beam by way of a shutter between high and low and use just one bulb like some of the fords

I swapped in a set of PIAA bulbs in mine. 9005s fit the highs same as factory and if you get a 9006 you can trim one of the tabs just a little bit with a grinder or sharp knife and it will fit perfect where the 9012 low beam is. The light output is awesome after I did this, hardly even need my high beams and with a 20" light bar in the bumper just in case it makes night driving-deer dodging a breeze

i've been considering using HID's my self but not sure if i should go with LED's instead? any input from anyone?
Well if you are really into it, I suggest you go for the LED kit as they would perform better compared with HID. Just not sure what would the output once installed in a projector headlamp.

Thanks for sharing this. I had just changed out my bulbs in my 09 and it made a huge change so was thinking of doing the same on my rebel.

Do you have a pic on what exactly is trimmed off the 9006 bulbs to make them fit? I got a set of 9006's and don't wanna cut to much off and ruin them.
