LED taillights come in a wide variety of colors & styles and have plenty of benefits compared to OEM taillights. But with so many choices available, getting to the bottom of which taillights is best for you can be tricky. We compiled this top 5 list to help you choose the perfect pair of LED taillights for your Dodge Ram!
I’ll give a quick run through of some of the main benefits of LED tail lights below the top 5 list – stay tuned fellow mother truckers!
#1 Depo 334-1909PXNS2C Dodge Ram Black LED Tail Light
- SAE/DOT compliant
- Precisely engineered and vehicle test fitted
- Extensive testing to ensure the best quality, safety and durability
- Headlight available in chrome and black finishes
- Featuring LED’s for that sharp look
These really got put to the test on my Ram through the freezing cold temperatures here in December and January, with no leaks or condensation whatsoever! Man I hate condensation! Only took me 10 minutes and semi frostbit fingers to have these guys fitted before Christmas.
These lights are made by an OE approved and ISO certified manufacturer with the quality met or exceeding all OE standards. Also have easy plug and play installation with no wire splicing needed.
I haven’t seen a fogged up set of these yet so they seem to be pretty well sealed. These may be arguably better looking than the Depo lights above, but lets not start any arguments here!
#3 Anzo USA 311018 Dodge Ram Black LED Tail Lights
OK, these tail lights look sick! I haven’t seen quite as much of these around my area, and this might be a good reason to buy them, if you want to give your Dodge Ram a custom look that isn’t that common. The LED pattern is in a kind of ‘honeycomb’ pattern, which is pretty neat. Here’s a quick roundup of the product features:
- Easy installation – directly replaces factory lenses
- Thermo-Hygrometer (temperature and humidity chamber) and Rain-Resistant tested
- SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) and D.O.T. (Department of Transportation) compliant with FMVSS (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standarts) No. 108.
- Provides a clean look and are a great match for the hi-tech Euro style
I think these are awesome lights, slightly more expensive, but definitely worth it! They are high quality LED tail lights that look just as good turned off as they do when they are on. Out of all the lights on the list, these are definitely the best fitting lights, they seem to fit even better than the factory ones!
#4 Spec-D Tuning Dark Smoke Ram 1500 Led Tail Lights
I remember a time where these specific tail lights costed over 500 bucks, and now you can pick up a set for under $200! Spec D is a well known brand in this industry and for all the right reasons. They produce high quality products (although sometimes expensive) and have great customer support.
Don’t let the extremely dark lens fool you, these lights are super bright when on! Its clear to see why these were very expensive in the beginning, the quality is really second to none.
There made in compliance with with OE and ISO for any one worried about the law makers!
As usual, Spec D offers a warranty and 30 day money back guarantee – but I doubt anyone would be unhappy with these anyway.
On Amazon, it says that these do not fit the 2012 model, but I can assure you all that they do, and they do so very well.
#5 SPPC Red/Clear LED Tail Lights For Dodge Ram
I put these on my list for those of you who want LED tail lights, but want to try stick to the factory look of your truck. They offer the exact same benefits of all the other tail lights on the list, but look more stock with there clear/red lens.
These are perfect if you are just looking to increase visibility and safety in general while on the road, but want to keep that standard look. Personally, I prefer smoked tail lights, but each to their own!
As far as price goes, these are on the lower end of the scale, making the a cheap upgrade for your Dodge Ram – will cost you less than a Saturday night at the tavern!
What are the benefits of LED taillights For my Dodge Ram?
– Make your truck unique and stylish!
This is probably the number one reason why most of you want to upgrade your dodge ram with LED tail lights, and rightly so. Your tail lights give you the perfect opportunity to leave a lasting impression when you leave everyone else eating your dust. Ensure your daily driver is eye catching with a shiny new set of LED tail lights. There are many different combinations to choose from to give your truck that extra flair, from smoked to chrome. The color of your ride will play a big part in choosing the right style for you, but in my opinion smoked LED taillights look bad-ass on any truck!
– Greater Visibility
LED tail lights often double or triple the range of standard lights, which is the main reason they are considered to have a major increase on safety. Heck, every vehicle on the road should have them! Next time your driving at night or in poor visibility, keep an eye out and you will notice that you will be able to spot cars with LED taillights at much greater distance than standard taillights.
This is due to the fact that they are constructed froom several lightbulb systems, rather than single bulbs found in standard tail lights. Therefore, they emit an array of light that makes your truck more visible at greater distances.
– Longer Lifespan
There is two main reasons why LED taillights will last longer in your Ram:
- LED’s are shockproof – so if your an aggressive driver like myself, then they may be a necessary upgrade haha! Just think of a standard household bulb, give it a few shakes and it wont be lighting up your living room, that’s for sure! Well, you’ll be glad to know this isn’t the case with LED’s!
- Unlike traditional bulbs, LED bulbs don’t have a filament to heat up and burn out. Therefore they can last over 10 times longer! When an LED is getting to the end of its lifespan it will start to dim, rather than suddenly going out like a standard bulb.
– Easy Installation
All the taillights on our list are simple plug and play. There’s no need for wire splicing or any of that madness – pfft, who has time for that anyway ! This simple upgrade can be done in about 10 minutes usually. Quick tip – even if your not mechanically minded, just have a look on YouTube for installation tutorials, there is no need to fork out any cash for a mechanic – its really that simple!
– Better Energy Efficiency
A nice benefit of LED lighting is that they only require a minimal amount of energy to run. Although the difference will be barely noticeable on its own, it puts less strain on the battery and alternator which is a good thing when youve got a power hungry stereo sytem pumping! Less strain on the battery and alternator equals less frequent repairs/changes – which in turn equals more money in our pockets!
Tail lights are a necessity to anyone wanting to add that custom look to their truck. Tail lights are perfect for replacing any broken or faded factory tail lights. They give your truck an awesome new appearance. LED Tail lights are affordable, easy to install, and replace the entire tail light housing. LED Tail lights allow you to inexpensively change the look of your truck with a quick easy install.
