How to adjust headlights?

Hey gang, I dont know if its just my truck or these lights just suck compared to the ones in my 08 but im trying to figure out how to adjust them a little higher. When the brights are on they shine bright but there is a fairly sharp line that they dont shine past, the worst is coming up to a hill, you almost cant see anything until you start going up it. I know doing a projector upgrade is the best but I dont have the funds or the time to be messing w/ doing all of that now. Thanks for the input!

You need a very long (about 12" if I remember correctly) #2 Philips screwdriver. The adjuster is right behind the headlight assembly. Just make sure that you turn each side in equal amounts.
