Glad to hear you found a solution that works for you. The OE headlights are a joke. I’m having a set of custom LED projector headlights made, and I should have them this month. I’m looking forward to the improvement.

Here is a link to replacement healights designed for halogen bulbs. I haven't purchased them yet, but they are on the list. BTW, this is a Dodge Nitro design.

Im curious, why would you purchase those? They are exactly like the lights that were installed at the factory. Were your original headlights damaged?

Whoaaa. I have a 2016 LE and one the pathetic headlights are horrid at night. I love the way that they look, but their output is almost useless. I will have to check this out!

If you check out YouTube on how to properly change Halogen to LED bulbs you will find that you just can't arbitrarily switch them out.

The LED bulbs must conform to the same configeration and design as the Halogens so as the light produced by the bulb, will match the interior reflectors designed for the Halogen bulbs. Otherwise if the incorrect designed LED's are installed, the light reflectors will shoot light into on coming traffic or to the side of the road or up into tree line and you wont be satisfied with the results.

What I did was to look at the front of my headlight lens for a DOT number. Went on line to search for this DOT number and found out who the manufacturer is. Then I went on line to find which LED bulb is designed for my particular headlight assembly.
Newmar used a 2011 Dodge Nitro Headlight and tail light assembly on my 2016 Ventana LE 4037.
Surprise, Surprise.

Once you find the correct LED's, it's a simple matter of removing the Halogens and installing the LED"s. They are designed to switch out right out of the box. No need to drill out the back of the headlight assembly to install a different sized projection bulb base etc.

The headlights will need to be re-adjusted by following again on YouTube, how to properly adjust headlights. Vertical adjustments may only be needed to be done and possibly horizontally if the headlight assemble anchor points allow. The headlight assembly has an vertical adjustment nut which raises and lowers the bulb.

My replacement LED's work perfectly. They produce a dark line of demarcation when on low beam, so as not to scatter light where it is not needed and on high beams it lights up the road, THE WAY THEY SHOULD HAVE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Hope this helps you with my tried and proven results.
No guessing on what you should do, this woked for me.

I also purchased replacement headlights because my plastic lenses were UV damaged and the repair lense kits only work for a year. Once I received my new headlights, I replaced the Halogens with the correct for this headlight assembly LED's.
