Headlight Recommendations for LBZ...

I've searched this form and the internet and there are SO many different opinions and options for our trucks as far as headlights go. I've had the PIAA xtreme white plus in my Silverado for a couple years now and they've been great but still leave a little to be desired on these back country roads at night even with the 6 on mod done. The LED's I put in my girlfriend's car blow these out of the water.
I'm just looking for a good quality LED or Xenon upgrade.



What are you guys running?
What can you recommend?
Do I have to run an aftermarket projector housing to get the most out of a LED setup?

Have you looked at our Supporting Vendors:

If not, I would send them a PM with what you are interested in and I'm sure they can offer some recommendations.

Thanks, I reached out to them. I didn't end up going with either vendor here, I went with xenon depot. I really want to stay away from anything above 5500k. I'll post up some comparisons from my stock setup to the LED's when I do the switch.

Finished product ! Xenondepot 5500k's. I've had to adjust them a little here and there but I finally have the beam where I want and no one is flashing me their high beams at me. If I turn the fog lights on I instantly get flashed. But these low beams have enough light output that I don't really need the fogs unless I'm on a really dark country back road.

I know this is a few months old but I put the JDM NX bulbs in mine and am very happy. They were recommended to me.

Now if I could find a better housing, the OEM sucks.
