02-05 Dodge RAM 1500 Projector Headlights - Chrome

Hi, I recently bought some aftermarket replacement headlamps but don't like the weird beam pattern (V shaped).
So I was looking at these projector lamps,

02-05 Dodge RAM 1500 2500 3500 Projector Headlights - Chrome

https://www.carid.com/2004-dodge-ram...-87439098.html

but I don't understand how you get both low beam and high beam with these lamps when they use H1 bulbs and appear to use only 1 bulb per lamp.

I'm totally clueless on this so any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

...on the headlights it says in the first selection (SpecD) you've listed in their description that it comes with both high and low beam bulbs .
...I'm not really sure how they are configured by looking at the description???

I see this one already listed. Anyone using it? Basically want a stock light with a projector. Any feedback is appreciated.

He does have exactly what I think I'm looking for... now I need to rationalize why I would spend $675 on a light that I seldom will use... Am I assuming correctly these are the very brightest and best?

He uses the same morimoto projectors, bulbs and harnesses I use in mine. The $675 is just paying him to install them in a set of headlights. He has really high reviews on all the work Iíve seen him do, heís a preferred vendor on Ram Forum. But you can buy the parts for about $275.

I used promo code TRS10 to get 10% off, that code seems to last for awhile. It might still be good

I agree these are the best headlight options . If you're old like me , live in the country and don't care much for night driving...also add a pair of high quality, high power long range driving lights behind the grille of your Gen. III...they will out-perform any headlight combination...just remember to turn them off in oncoming traffic .

Spent some time going over what is available with Jeremy. I have no interest in turning this into my summer project. My plate is full as it is if it hadn't been for the damn inspection I would have ignored them for a while yet. But having some badass lights to drive with has just gone up on my priorities... I'll decide in a day or two... thanks for everyone's input.
