On our ‘17 RAM 2500 Power Wagon, we were disappointed to discover that the trim level our vehicle was outfitted with only used LED illumination for the dash and switch backlighting, all other internal lighting was incandescent. With a quick trip to, typing in the model of the vehicle, a list of all the applicable bulbs were presented to us and we could make our decisions.
The most difficult part was deciding what quantity we needed of each type and what color we wanted. As far as color was concerned, the site offers four shades of white, 2500k, 3000k, 4000k and 6000k. Most LED chipsets for aftermarket off-road lights are between 5100k and 6500k to give you an idea of what kind of light we are talking about.
The higher you climb in the Kelvin scale, the more blue light is introduced into the color spectrum. As such, we decided on 4000k bulbs for the cab of the truck as it gives a modern crisp light that illuminates everything, but is not so harsh that you feel like you are living under the spotlight. Additionally, the 4000k is much more luminous than warmer light, and the LED bulbs already outperform incandescent, so the amount of available light is considerably higher.
