These are the ones I put in. O'Riley auto parts returned the old ones and gave me the difference in price.

Narva or Osram for the win. Same pricing if not less money, they last longer, and are much brighter. I have pics somewhere comparing them, but can't find them. Narva Rangepower 50's give off way more Lumens. Any bulb not willing to provide the lumen output while telling you they are "50% brighter" is a sham. You have no way to compare bulbs besides lumens. If they don't provide it they are a shitty bulb/company IMO.

I think I will just do an HID retrofit later this year. That will take care of these issues.
