The OEM reflector halogen headlights on our Gen 3 Ram truck needed replacing. We chose AlphaRex® LUXX headlights for their superior projector LED high/low beams. The new lighting is a dramatic improvement over OEM headlights. Added features and updates include sequential turn signals and an attractive Gen 5 styling. See the video comparison between OEM reflector lights and the AlphaRex® upgrade projector beam headlights.
The OEM headlights on the 2002-2005 Gen 3 Ram trucks were reflector halogen type. The capped bulbs and reflectors diffuse and scatter the light. Adjusting the OEM lights (horizontally only) proved futile, and we lived with poor headlights from day one. Upgrade halogen bulbs provided a marginal improvement. When the lights deteriorated enough to toss them out, OEM replacement housings and halogen bulbs were out of the question. We searched for the best lighting upgrade and chose the mid-tier AlphaRex® LUXX-Series projector LED lights. These lights offer superior functionality at a sensible cost.
The LUXX headlight design for the Gen 3 Dodge Ram features attractive Gen 5 styling. Due to the headlight shape and limited space, there is no room for outer LED projector bulbs. The LED bulb at each side’s inside projector has a combined low-and-high beam. There is a faint trace of bluish light present at the outside projectors. The system provides a two-projector per side look that many truck owners want. AlphaRex® high end NOVA-Series lights feature four projectors at each headlight.
As for lighting quality, the single low/high LEDs at each side are more than ample! Lighting on our truck has never been this good. In the video, you will see a real world, on the street test of the new lighting. Our truck is safer and better lit now than when new. Projector LED lighting is superior in every way.
DRLs are optional on many AlphaRex® kits. (Check with AlphaRex® on whether your specific model year Ram truck can use the kit’s included DRL harness.) Installation without the DRL harness is simple plug-and-play. Changing to LUXX light assemblies is virtually the same as installing OEM headlights.
Instructions for installing the LUXX light assemblies and the DRL harness are available at the AlphaRex® website. There are also details on the entry level PRO-Series and the high end NOVA-Series headlights. Model coverage is from the Gen 3 to latest Ram trucks plus a wide range of other truck/SUV models.
