I use a Brite Box. It runs the high beams, low beams and the driving light together when its on high beam. The stock headlights really do quite well like this, and its not too expensive like some headlight options can be. (approx. $200)
I realize that the Brite Box is kind of Dinosaur technology compared to LEDs and projectors, but they do work well and are very reliable. I've had one since 2001 and have never had a failure, nor has a friend who has one almost as long.

I am running a set I got from www.thedieselcartel.com they are an improvement over stock. I have had them for about 3,000 miles, no problems.

I had a Brite Box on my 03 Dodge. Box shorted out internally after about 3 years and caught fire. Tried to burn my truck to the ground. Worked well up until that point but I'm not taking that chance again.

I had one on my last Dodge too. Sold it with the truck. Did you fan the flames?

Na. Lol. Had that truck for 9 years and it was only in the shop one time for a small oil leak. It didn't owe me a thing.

You did a whole lot better than I did. My 2002 Dodge 2500 CTD was not so kind to me. My wife was sooo happy when I sold it. She said she got so used to smelling diesel fuel on me that when I bought my Ford she was going to fill a cologne bottle with some No.2 diesel.
To be fair, the Cummins engine was great, however, the Dodge part wasn't the best. It just wore me out fixing things, so I sold it.
