Head lights are not bright enough

Is it just me or are the projector headlights on the these trucks just terrible? What have you guys found out that is a good reliable replacement bulbs? I hear about the Morimoto 2stroke 2.0 LED being a great option, but haven't seen any video or talked to anyone that actually has them in their truck.

I couldn’t agree more! Here is a picture of the original on the passenger side and the new lights on the drivers side. I used the JDM ASTAR for both the high/low beams and they are GREAT! It was simple to swap out and I picked them up on Amazon. Even with the built in fan on the LED everything fit without any modifications. Chevy has always lacked on the headlights and it’s one of the first aftermarket parts I install. Good luck!!

Here is another option to check out. I like how these guys do videos showing you what the beam pattern looks like and lux so you know what to expect before buying.
