Headlight options

Ok, I am thinking of changing out my headlight assembly for some that have space for a seperate high and low beam for each side. I have replaced the stock bulbs with a pair of HID's but they only allow for low beam. ie. no high beam at all. They are much brighter than the stock high beams so I have to keep them aimed down to minimize blinding oncoming people. But, sometimes, on dark unfamiliar roads it would be nice to get some more distance lit up. I'm thinking of something like this. >> 99-04 Ford Super Duty LED Halo Projector Headlights Chrome

But, I'm concerned with quality. I have a bud that purchased a set of aftermarket headlights a few years ago and my OEM ones have already outlasted his newer aftermarket set. So does anyone have any feedback on this? Do you have these or a similar set that you'd want to lend some info on? Thanks in advance. Terry

hrmmm.. I don't really like the look - but if they improve visibility that much - I'm all for it... I'll be curious what others have to say that have experience with them

I have the one piece led headlights on my truck. They are a hell of a lot brighter than stock and shine farther also. I have mine adjusted a little high but if it blinds people than they should get a bigger vehicle. I am very satisfied and have had no probs yet. I have been running them for almost 2 years and they are just as bright as they were new.
