What headlights should I use?

My stockers are yellow and do not allow me to see very well.

What are my options? I tried to clean them with the polishing kit, but no luck.

What kits on Ebay should I stay away from?

I am not looking to go HID, I just want to see like I should.

Thanks in advance,
Mike

I picked up a set from headlight depot off of Ebay. They went in nicely and look great (especially for the money and time to replace). They work just as well also.

I would do it again if I needed to.


Thanks for your input. I had looked into the 05 conversion, and it was more work than I wanted to deal with. I guess I am a little lazy.

The 05 up uses the H13 which is quite possibly the stupidest design for a bulb ever foisted on the public. The terminals are so small that they can overheat, even at stock wattages, and melt the plastic housing of the connectors. Higher than stock wattage bulbs are offered, but not recommended. There are Chinese connectors that are being used to make these kits and no harness will fix the problem of to small of terminals. As of now no USA made plugs are made that I have seen and wouldn't solve the problem anyway.

You can have the best headlight housings made now '02-04 and the addition of our USA made harness and a set of their 80/100w 4k kelvin bulbs will give you fantastic lighting.

You can also do a fog bulb upgrade..75% as bright as Hids and mod the switch to use them with your high beams.
