LED bulbs in factory fog housings. Bright, but bright chaos. a retro may be in order.
I’m feeling like the people around you when you’re driving will not be too happy.
Yikes. I wonder how much heat those LEDs generate compared to the OEM incandescent lamps.
Ive always been under the impression LEDs dont generate head the way halogen do. Meaning yes the fixture itself will become warm, but the lenses itself will never get hot.
I didn’t think so either as my Accord lights stay cool to the touch.
Nice car, i actually have to wrap the grill on my buddies this weekend.
As for the LED stuff im pretty sure we are on point. Ive been to training a bunch of time for new products for work(i work for audi, aka LED kings) and they stress how much better LEDs are than standard.
Led low beams vs halogen
Im trying to find a set of stock lights to buy to pull apart and paint the bezel. Id like to do headlights, LEDs low beams, switchbacks and grill emblem all one shot.
Wrapped the taillights using Luxe Auto lense tint film. Ive always used VHT spray tint, and i will never ever touch a can of that stuff again. This film is so easy to work with and gives the perfect glossy finish. They do a lot of mopar stuff, so i was kind of surprised they didnt have any precut kits for the ram. So i just bought a 1 yard x 20" roll and that was enough to do the tails and the 3rd brake light.
I went with the mid smoke level, they have 1 darker and 1 lighter. Mid smoke is darker than i anticipated but im very happy with the outcome. Im glad i did not go dark smoke as i think it would have just been solid black.
After wrapping, i used a fresh blade to cut out the reverse and cargo light clear sections.
Picked up some OEM black badges from the dealer, inlayed them with some white vinyl. Dont get me wrong the black badging on its own looks good, but i dont like how you cant see the rams head from farther away. I like how the vinyl kinda highlights it. Curious to see how close the white matches to the paint.
