Anyone know a good aftermarket replacement headlight? My housing is fogged with condensation and the lamp is out. I tried removing it and drying but the light bulb popped again..

The stealership quoted me $1000 for new light and harness...

some have put it in the oven , not too warm , to make sealing bead more "liquid ", pull apart
the 2 sections , add same kind of sealer , and reassemble ,
did you touch bulb with fingers , they pop soon when we touch
them with human greasy fingers , invisible to us , but a finger print on the halogen bulb will
shorten life of bulb .
Butyl rubber ( called Dom Dom around here )
Videos ;, example off oven trick :,, and stretching butyl rubber to use on the reseal

I got these Morimoto headlights on Amazon. They are pretty easy to install and give my truck a more modern look with the DRL’s. They cost around $1200 but I think they are worth it. You have the option to install with sequential turn signal if you like that look. I did and I like the sequential turn signal.

Over on a different RamForum, the Modifystreet/Alapharex headlights are popular upgrades for the headlights. There is several different black/chrome combinations available. You can use LEDs in both the Highs and Lows, for the best output: HIKARI Ultra LED.
The latest style offer from them:

I have all chrome model (V1) in my truck, I also added the dedicated DRL circuits so the headlights/DRLs operate like the factory.

Never heard of the other ones mentioned. Their nova series looks interesting. Not sure how much I like those quad projector look.
