the only thing is, i just cant justify spending 200 bucks on bulbs. HID's would be awesome, but im also trying to get a lift + tires.

thanks tho. It always comes down to it, so little cash and so much to do! hahaha

i bought sylvania ultra bright for my truck and barely noticed a change if anything. i noticed a bigger difference when i had them on my gmc. i'm considering buing HID's now, but the thing that concerns me is getting pulled over. i already get people *****in for my lights being in their mirrors

i have the silverstars in my rig... the only difference was it's not as yellowy. Still no comparison to HID and it was a cheap fix when I did my harley lights. But these H13s (atleast in the 05+ trucks) are already really bright, so you have to go HID before you see a big difference.

Dog Lewis from Frod Preformance Specalists (tech support 770-949-7191) has a mod called Brite Box. It operates both high/low head lamps at the same time. Its a box that plugs into the head lite harness. ($$ not sure ) He has a web site Ford Specialists.com - Ford Performance Specialists Seen before and after pictures and a noticable difference between the two. That's one of the mods I would like to do to my truck. (cheaper than HID'S considering if one goes bad in time) Hope info helps? Good luck

I have been researching the same, and just so you know, an HID conversion is more than just bulbs. There is wiring and ballasts that also need installed.
