Here's a link to a pdf file containing the headlight wiring diagram for your year model Dodge Ram 1500..
I can't help but notice that you say you've replaced the headlight relay? That's quite odd, because there is NO headlight relay on this vehicle- only a 40 amp fuse located in the power distribution box that sits behind the battery inside the engine bay.
The switch is notorious for burning out because there is NO RELAY on this vehicle, and there is a recall (#819) but this only affects 3500 models even though the headlight wiring is the same for 1500,2500 and 3500 model Rams.
Here are two more links that will help you troubleshoot your headlights problems.

On the upper grill side of the headlight assy. there
should be 1 or 2 push pins that hold the seal on the
headlight assy to the front of the fender. Also check
for a guide/push pin on the inner top of the assy on
the outer fender side. That should be all there is to
hold the headlight in place. Hope this helps.

There is a fuse you may have more then one fuse box look under the hood & under the dash. Most of the time Chrysler will just put a number next to the fuses. Go to your owners manual & see what number is your head light fuse. If you still can't find the right fuse take your test light & check both side of each fuse if one side lights up & one side does not replace it with the same size fuse.

Engage the parking break and remove the keys from the ignition before attempting any repairs. Make sure you've turned the headlight switch to the off position.
Open the hood by first pulling the interior hood release lever located below the steering wheel under the instrument panel. Then, walk around to the front of the pickup and push up on the safety catch located in the opening beneath the center of the grill. Lift the hood and secure it.
Unscrew the expanding fastener from the headlight welt, if equipped. Use a screwdriver to remove the three screws that hold it in place. However, not all Dodge Rams of this generation have this feature.
Remove the first two bolts from the headlight assembly using a socket wrench. These two bolts will be on the inside near the grille.
Remove the third bolt located on the outside bottom of the headlight assembly near the fender. You may find it easier to access this bolt from the fender well where you'll find an access hole after removing the fender plug. Use a socket wrench with a ratchet extender for easier removal.
Pull the headlight assembly away from the front of the pickup, giving special force to the fender side. Be careful not to scratch the paint or jostle the assembly too much. You don't want to have to readjust your headlight aim when you're done.
Disconnect the electrical connector by giving it a quarter-turn and pulling it straight out from the base of the bulb housing. This should remove it completely from the housing, so you can access the bulb.
Twist the collar on the headlight bulb a quarter-turn to remove it from the bulb base.
Install the new bulb into the bulb assembly, reconnect the electrical connector and place it back into the headlight housing. Replace the headlight assembly in reverse order of removal. Make sure all bolts are secure before closing the hood.
Turn on your Dodge Ram and make sure the headlights are working.
