Best headlights?

I drive a 2002 F250 and am wondering what aftermarket lamps are best for our trucks. I am not prepared to do the entire HID kit right now, just looking for the best replacement lamp (PIAA, Silverstar, ETC). Thanks.

Silverstars are the best I have heard of. There is another company that starts with and A IIRC that has even better silverstars.

Where did you get yours and how many $'s?

They are to white. The color temperature is so high it kills your night vision so you can see nothing that isn't directly in the light. The best lighting for night vision is in the red part of the spectrum cause it keeps your night vision intact. All you Navy guys and photographers will know what i am talking about. I use red lense on my lights i use for moving bees at night. Bees don't see red and the red light allows me to see what i am doing and dosen't interferr with my night vision. Haven't you noticed how when someone comes up behind you with those white or bright blue lights it blinds you for a second?

I had blue lights in my truck for a few months. They blind everyone on low beam, and you couldnt see crap going down the road.

They arent too white... Completely better vision than stock. Vision at night is incredible. Again... much better than stock.

I'm not talking about the blinding HID's.
