I have owned Hella headlight housings in that same size on a previous truck. I ran 80/100W bulbs and a custom harness. There was nothing weak about the light output. I just wish I could have made them fit on my second gen.

Those housings you have look pretty decent. I don't know why you aren't happy with them. Either they really are doing a crappy job and just LOOK good in the pic you posted, or maybe your expectations are off.

The Hellas I had were very similar in appearance. The latest ones use a clear lense and a different type of reflector. They are supposed to be higher light output than the old ones. I think you'd have a hard time beating a set of Hellas for output/value. Probably going to cost you more like $100 a pair.

What are you comparing the ones you have to? They aren't going to be HIDs, but they should absolutely blow away the factory lights. Any friends that have similar setups you can compare to? I hate to see you spend money on another halogen setup and then be unhappy because you are expecting HID type light output.
