I have silverstars in the front 4 lights, so much better than the yellow stuff dodge puts in.

I bought some of those and haven't installed them yet. Don't ask me what the hell I'm waiting for.

I have been using the Hella 100/80 watt headlight bulbs and the Hella 80 watt fogs since 05' in my 05' Ram with no replacements or problems.
Others have found success toowith the PIAA's and the Silverstars***

I'll need to check on wattage, but when I was looking at Hellas theysaid I needed a new wiring harness and they didnt have em, so I bought SS, been happy with them.

Ran 80/100 (Lo/Hi) Xenon whites in my Charger for a while. Wasn't impressed. Put in the Silverstars and the night turned into day. The H4 Silverstars are better than the 80/100old school H4 halogen bulbs I used to run in my 68 pickup. No rewiring necessary and doesn't void the warranty. Plan on putting a set in my new 1500 when it arrives.

either the silverstars or the PIAAs are good. but ive seen the PIAA and the silverstar side by side and cant tell the difference and the PIAAs are double the price so id go with the silverstars
