I had the same exact experience when I picked up my SRT, two weeks ago.

Count me in as well. I get flashed all the time too. It doesn't appear to me from inside that their aim is to high.

Does anyone believe the oncoming driver has a vendetta? I think they are politely letting you know your lights are aimed too high regardless of what you think. Blinding them isn't the solution.

I have a lifted 4x4 that can blind people as I follow them or approaching. If I wanted, I guess I could be an a$$ and blind others...hell, I could go ahead and crush them too. What's the point?

I adjusted my headlights slightly until I quit getting flashed.

Do you mean if your lights are out of adjustment you shouldn't take it out on everyone else?

Sounds reasonable. There are two active threads on JG right now discussing this. Apparently its an issue.

I get it every now and then, usually when I am heading uphill on a fairly steep grade.

The ones that do raise my blood pressure are when I have fogs on and their vehicle has fogs and they are too limited in functional neurons to be aware that fogs, unless intentionally miswired, do NOT come on if high beams are on.

The others, I just flash the highs to indicate that they are low.

Wonder if some of the air suspensions are leaving the front end a tad on the high side?

Someone pointed out that the lights are adjustable...

Thats really not nice, and on a 2 lane does have the danger that the doofus may cross
into your lane.

Besides, for that you want aircraft landing lights, offroad Cibie or similar, or a small tactical nuke anyway.
