    I've, generally, stuck with OEM headlight bulbs on various vehicles over the years. I am thinking of replacing the headlight bulbs on my Ford F150 with an aftermarket type to increase visibility. Though, granted, I would want to keep it street legal and not overly obnoxious to other motorists.

    Can anyone recommend a good make/model? Thanks much.

    I haven't tried them but I heard good things about the Silverstar lights. I thing someone said something about a shorter lifespan but the lights were brighter. I wanted to try them in my driving lights on my Jeep but it is a weird socket that not many support it seems.

    Sweet. Let me know what you think of them. I need to improve the lighting of my Jeep. I would like to get some JW Speakers but the $750 price tag is holding me back.

    Will do. I'd imagine they'll come in soon. The weather sucks here and driving at night involves low visibility. I almost nailed a deer on the interstate a couple weeks ago, so it got me to thinking any extra visibility is a good thing.

    Yikes @ $750 price tag on the JW's. They look like a solid line though.

    The Jeeps lights are nothing to write home about. I hope they work out for you.

    Deer can be a problem here as well. I haven't had any in front of me yet which is a really good thing.
