Default Not so bright ?

I have had my 2011 Ram since new and have had no issues with it, except I have been driving it more at night lately. I have noticed that my headlights are not that bright. I can have my high beams on and uncoming cars do not even seem to notice, my low beams I can hardly see 10 feet in front of me. Anyone else have this issue ?

All the 2011 headlights SUCK!!!! I went the cheap way out and just put in PIAA bulbs. Not the best, but better than stock.... I also added fogs with aftermarket bulbs.. All good now....

They all are not great, from the 09 till they pull them out with projectors 2013 -, Look in the lighting section, you will find tons of information of what members have done. Myself, I cracked mine open, installed Morimoto D2S projectors and 55w HID's in 6000k color. Love my lights now.

4th gen headlights are bare minimum, they just plain suck. But they are nowhere near as bad as my 2000 ram. I'd be better off holding a flashlight out the window.

Raised mine two turns on the left side and two and a half turns on the right side made a world of difference not brighter but at least I can see down the road now
