Looking for new healights

I bought these eagle eyes ( F250 F350 F450 SUPERDUTY HEADLIGHT HEADLAMP LEFT NEW | eBay) off ebay and have since sealed them up so there is no more fogging issues. Anyways the lights that came with the eagle eyes are terrible and Im in the market for an upgrade. What do you guys recommend? I found these on pure diesel power what do you think and what else is out there. Thanks


Silverstar 880 Bulbs, Pair

If you don't want to go to HID's the brightest Silverstar lights from AutoZone are pretty bright. I have them in mine and like them.

dont waste your time with them silverstar 45 dollars lights, the little extra output isnt worth it. ddmtuning sells plug and play kits for 35w $45(usually for fogs) and 55w $55(for head lights). if you want hi/lo headlights its a little more but the first set i bought, i got hi and low and hid lights arent meant to be hi lo and the light output was no diff from low to high so now i get lights with low beam only so when u switch the highs on they shut off but these things are so bright u dont need highs. just make sure u aim the head lights down a little. i have ordered 6 sets from ddm tuning. 2 sets in my truck, one set in my dads 6.4, one set in my motorcycle, i put a set in my moms smart car, and a set in my buddies ranger. i love them and ddmtuning.com has a lifetime warranty but i havent had to send one pair back. if you want i can get some pics of the truck but here is my bike

Just a FYI, in states that require "state inspections", some states require the vehicle's hi/lo beam to work in order to pass inspection.

I bought the h13 plug and wired it into my HID harness so at inspection time I just screw regular bulb in and do inspection and then after HID back in saves so much time and was like 10 bucks for the pigtails... I saved money and didn't hi/lo option no need for it I can drive with just my fogs at night. I second aiming them down I was getting flashed in the day with my lights on at first install waiting for night time to aim down. I have them aim maybe a foot ahead of fog lights
