I had wrongly heard that the bumper and grill had to be removed to access the headlight assemblies (i.e the lens and relfectors).
ALL that is needed is some patience and a small pry bar or very large screwdriver.
The light assembly is Pulled out of three Ball Sockets that mate with 6-8 in long adjusting screws.
To remove the light assembly, it Helps if the grill is removed (2 phillips screws on top of grill and 2 inside the upper left and right hand sides).
Then, with your fingers, pull sharply on the side of the lens assembly, often just popping 2 of the 3 ball sockets. Now, use a large flat blade screwdriver to wedge into the side or back of the assembly and use it as a lever to pry the assembly forward, popping the remaining socket.
Using a counterclockwise (normal reverse) rotation, remove the retaining ring for the bulb and carefully remove the bulb - laying it down onto a CLEAN paper towel, rag, or insert it into the cuff of a dry clean rubber/vinyl glove. To replace the bulb at this time (a good idea!), use a medium size flatblade screwdriver to remove the blue retainer prongs from the bulb socket and pry off off the male plug. Cover the new bulb in a paper towel or glove and place the retaining Collar onto the back of the bulb, with the Beveled side facing back (the engine compartment). Plug the male connector onto the back of the bulb. Lay the bulb down on a clean paper or glove.
To replace the housing/assembly, press the bulb into the back of the assembly and rotate the collar clockwise one-quarter turn. Make sure it is Tight!
Now, peering through the cracks on the sides, align the sockets with the screws you can see and press the housing forward, hopefully snapping one or more sockets. Usually some of the sockets will Not reconnect immediately. Using your fist or a small Rubber/plastic mallet, smack the front of the lens until you can hear or feel the sockets snap into place.
Dont be too hard or you may crack the lens!
Aim/Adjust the lense using small Torx driver. There are two - the one inside, near the grill adjusts the Toe-In/Out (left to right movement) and the outer adjusts the Vertical (up/down).

Open the hood and make sure the car and the lights are off.
Remove the plastic protective cover.There are 3 knobs,turn halfway and pull.Put aside and out of the way.
Remove the three pins that are holding the light assembly in place.These are flat rods with a little bend at the end.
Twist and un-plug the lights,now you can remove the whole lens.
The light bulbs can also be removed and replaced from this point.
Make sure all the bulbs are working before you put it back together.

the bolts you are looking to remove are located on the top of the light housing. It only takes 2 of them to remove the housing. One is about 6 to 8 inches long, and the other one is much shorter than that. Just unscrew and remove them, and pull the housing straight out.

Testimonial: "Thanks a bunch!"
You have to remove the front bumper and grill etc
There are 5 bolts holding the headlight assembly in place. 2 at the top and 3 underneath.
Remove the plastic cross piece by prising out the clips and then the grille clips too then unbolt the bolts eithr side under the wheel arch. The bumper is still fastened using cips. Pull the bumper forward to unclip.

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.
