Horrible Headlights

I have a 2010 model and I love it all except the headlights. When its dark and the lights are on dim I can't see crap. Does anyone else have the same problem? I don't have the money for HIDs so I know thats out of the question. All my other trucks I have owned I could see great.

Re: Horrible Headlights

You can try silverstar ultra bulbs, they are brighter than OEM, but a set of both highs and lows will cost about $80 (I usually get mine on ebay they are cheaper there), you can get a set of low beam HID's from JB for $55.

HID kits are less than aftermarket bulbs and will put out much more light! Or you can get some aux lighting - TAP Auto GB - Rigid Industries LED Lights - The best LED bar built!

Re: Horrible Headlights

What do you mean when "the lights are on dim". You mean low beam mode? When you talk about how they are horrible, is it because of how bright they are (or arent in your case) or the actual light output (where the light shines on the road). If its the output, maybe they need adjustment.

Re: Horrible Headlights

I found my stock lights to be dim too. I replaced just the low beam bulbs with PIAA intense white bulbs and they've been great since! I think they were $45 shipped.

Re: Horrible Headlights

I was thinking the same as spoonman, maybe a little adjustment to put out a better light spread would help. I have stock and think they put out pretty well.

Re: Horrible Headlights

my stock bulbs sucked to but they were a few years old. one finally burnt out so i had to get some new bulbs(cops around here are nazis about healight bulbs being out and a headlight ticket is $90 ). i ended up finding some silverstar ultras at advanced auto on sale so i got those. they are way better than stock. much brighter and whiter. i do get people flashing their lights at me more now becase they think my high beams are on but whatever. atleast i can see at night now
