Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The headlights on the '03+Ram pickup are defective and should have been recalled long ago. I think the issue is the reflectors inside the housings. I've installed higher wattage bulbs which didn't do anything, adjusted the lights, same thing. I even went as far as trying HID in the stock housings and didn't do anything but blind vehicles coming at me, plus the housing were not designed for HID. Been to the dealership and was told they work as designed. I found a Ram owner who was in the same boat and experimented with aftermarket lighting and came up with lights Dodge should have. I've hit my second Moose and will finally spend the money for new headlights. Shame on Dodge,why wait till 2013-14 to have decent lighting?
