08 headlight upgrade

Based upon your experience, what is the best option for improving the headlights on the 08 F350?

Depends on how much $ you want to spend...

I put silverstars in the fogs and heads and they are about 75% brighter than stock IMO and I dropped $40 bucks on all 4 bulbs... Or you can go HID but that will run you close to $300 but will probably a little over twice as bright.

TRUCK IS FOR SALE! PM ME!

yah like he said it depends on what you want to pay... a simple bulb upgrade, full HID kit, or a HID kit inside a projector style headlights...

you can do a recon or an ANZO projector headlight and do an HID conversion kit for them... that would give you the best upgrade... I can make you a good package deal or sell them separately too... Raul can too

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

I would also be interested in pricing out a hid with projector headlights. That would just about finish the truck.

Thanks for the feedback. Please PM me with a projector/HID option. Can these be installed by me or is it an onvolved process?
