New Headlight Bulbs

Wanted to share that i read about these on this forum.. My headlights seemed dim to me, Dull, (amberish)... Not sure if bulbs get dim w/ age, usage time but mine were very bland. Installed these yesterday & i leave for work early dark thirty. Big difference, not over the top like HIDs but much brighter/whiter & keeps same pattern..
Just sharing

I'm not speaking about the overheating alone if that's what u thought.
Some vehicles have better results using larger gauge wiring to the headlights... Just figured u may be looking to try it and get the most bang for ur buck.

I haven't run independent wires to the lights on the Tacoma since the retrofits years ago, so I dunno if the Tacoma does in fact show improvement in output wire a larger harness or not.
