Hey all, for the longest time I have much preferred black dominant headlights over chrome dominant. But with my truck having chrome bumpers, grill and door handles I felt black dominant housings would look out of place.

Pro Tuning Lab says these non quad light will fit. Here is the quote...
"Will fit both Quad and Dual style factory headlight models
Dual design - plug and play replacement, use original H13 bulbs
Quad design - will require H13 headlight bulbs for our headlight install (H13 bulbs not included)"

So I ca norder these yes?

HID Xenon + 09-15 Dodge Ram 1500 2500 3500 Euro Crystal Headlights - Black

I usually am not a advocate of trying to integrate 3 colors/accenting in a vehicle unless it has some serious custom paint of something. For example I think the sport models with all blacked out emblems look stunning. Or stock paint with all chrome accenting looks good. Like you have to go one way or the other for it to really look good.

Well I have black rims, custom black HEMI emblems with red accenting, custom grill/tail gate shield emblems black based with red accenting. I have painted all but the border or my grill black leaving a chrome ring with shaved "RAM" lettering on the right drivers side horizontal crossbar of the grill. I am going to paint my MBRP tips black. Chrome left will be bumpers, grill border and door handles which IMO with the black all on a Deep Cherry Red Pearl paint job will/does look good.

Black and chrome headlights will match your black grille and chrome bumpers. My blacked headlights mesh well with the chrome and black and actually add balance unlike the straight chrome headlights I had.

The quads you have are connected to a h13 connector making dual headlights plug and play. I went from duals to quads and can go back to duals no problem
