Headlights and Bulbs

My headlights suck. I cant afford HID's at the moment. Is there a better bulb out there than the OEM bulbs that will have a significant impact on light output?

Was also looking for a different set of lenses or whatever they are called, mine look like they are full of condensation, real foggy looking.

CHEAP AS POSSIBLE!!!

I used the 9007-ST2 silver star bulbs in mine..polished the headlights up good with some clear-coat scrub and they seem to be alot better.$40.00 for the pair at autozone.Hope this helps

Blowin: I was on a budget as well... My stock headlights were really yellow and dull... I looked all over ebay and found these a decent price... plus a very good seller.

99-04 Ford F250 Super Duty 03 02 01 OEM Headlight LH#:eBay Motors (item 250430028250 end time Jun-21-09 19:00:27 PDT)

I already had silverstars installed... I just installed them with these new headlights. Now I have light going in every direction... I just need to get the lights adjusted correctly.

so far the headlights are free from moisture... and I have drivin in some bad storms over the last few weeks.

silver stars are a good option, I had them in my truck for about 2 years... but recently upgraded to Harley style '05-up lights and wiring harnes... much brighter! After market lights and the harness with relays set me back a total of $280 with shipping and 2 hours to install...
