Best replacement bulbs on 2007 taco

What are the best replacement bulbs, that are brighter and whiter for our second gen tacos...I dont have the money nor the time for HID's at this time so was wondering which would be the best for a bright white look without long installation time..

Well just food for thought...A good set of bulbs are going to be about $50. My HID kit was $77 out the door with shipping and tax.

i got mine from ddmtuning.com . there are only 2, 55 and 35W, the difference is the brightness. i live in a rural area so i opted for the brighter option. and the 800k is the color.

I have Silverstar Ultras. Whiter, a little brighter. Nice little upgrade. I've ran HID kits before but decided not to on the Taco. But I agree that HID kits aren't going to be that much more and Silverstars have generally low life spans.

Sylvania XtraVision H4's. They light up the road a lot better and don't use up a whole lot of wattage. Longer bulb life, Silverstars are cool only if you want to spend money for new ones every month or two.

they are "whiter" then stock and brighter. they last about 6-8 months better then the 1 or 2 for the sliverstars. u really can't get "white" light with out going to HIDs. but for about 20 bucks not bad choice thats what im running for now.

Does your friend ever leave the city? In town there is too much ambient light for most people to notice. I get highbeamed on empty, dark highways with Silverstars in OEM headlights.
