    I have a 2014 Ram 1500 with the quad headlights(non-projector). The truck has the vertical fog lights, which use a 9006 bulb. I am changing over headlights and fogs to LED. Is there any reason why I cannot use a 9006 headlight bulb in the fog light housings?

    You can the beam will be different is the difference. Like a spot light compared to a flood light.

    A 9006 bulb is the same no matter where it is put.
    If you notice the 9006 has a glare cap, do your LED's have a glare cap to prevent blinding for oncoming traffic?

    I think the foglights changed at the same time the grill was redesigned in 2013
