Which headlight bulb is the brightest? Mine are not bright at all. Most of the time I can't tell they are on unless I hit the brights, I usually drive with my KC lights on, now that really lights things up! I would like to get the brightest bulb with out having to do any modifications.

Thanks!

I use H4's. I don't use silverstars anymore because they burn out on me every year.

Idk but it's a bookmark on my computer under "taco maintenance"

I went and measured my OEM bulbs. If you're going to buy LED map lights, they need to be the cylindrical festoon bulbs that are roughly 30 mm in length.

I'm having a hard time deciding between warm and cool white. Does anyone have some pictures of each to compare? I'm thinking warm because I want to complement the brown interior of my truck but I've always liked the bright white that a cool white LED gives off, I'm just not sure if it would look good in my truck.
