Headlight bulbs

I want to have brighter bulbs but want to keep the stock housings and do not want HID's. Are there any bulbs you guys recommend that are pretty bright. Im not sure if these will work or not PIAA White Bulb, PIAA Xtreme White Automotive Bulbs

Any opinions and pictures would be appreciated!!!

Have you looked at SilverStars or SilverStar Ultras?

I run SilverStars in my '01 - Way better than stock bulbs.

Anyway - Just a suggestion.

I had silverstars in mine, and they did a better job than the stock ones, but not as good as my 06 with HIDs, so I got a pair of bulbs from Recon for $35 and they give a crisp clean white and seem to work well. My silverstars lasted about 8 months and still have life left in them, I know Recon products have a tendency to fail after a couple months or even weeks, so I'll try to keep informed. Piaa Xtreme white bulbs are great, I've had a pair in my other truck for 3 yrs, have not blown once and they look great and increase the distance, but they are expensive for just bulbs.
