In this guide, we'll help you quickly and easily find the replacement bulb size(s) you need for your 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 RAM 1500 (4th Generation). From the headlights to the brake lights and everything in between.
During these seven years, the RAM 1500 was made with two headlight versions. One with projector headlights and another with reflector headlights. Each version uses different bulbs and so we make the distinction in our size charts below.
For the 2019 model only, the RAM 1500 only came with halogens in the reflector headlamps only. The projector model has factory LEDs. The fog lights were also different from the other years. Again, we make the distinction in our charts.
We organized all the bulbs into 5 lighting categories with easy-to-read charts. Select any of the categories below to jump right to the bulb size chart you're looking for:
💡 TIP: Did you know that you can upgrade your headlight and fog light bulbs on your RAM 1500? Get up to 300% more light with LED or HID bulbs. Learn more below the size charts!
️⭐ NOTE: This guide only applies to 2013 to 2018 RAM 1500 with the original factory (OEM) assemblies. If you have aftermarket headlights, fog lights, brake lights, etc. you will need different bulb sizes as per the manufacturer's specifications.
🎯 ACCURACY: If you notice any inaccuracies or missing information, please let us know so we can update the guide. Providing accurate and complete information is important to us and our readers.
🚧 IMPORTANT: Automotive light bulbs are vehicle-specific! Follow this guide, review your owner's manual or contact your dealership to make sure you're buying the right bulbs to avoid fitment issues.
