    First let me say, it's really difficult to believe it's 2017 and Toyota engineers can't provide adequate headlights on their trucks!

    I know there are many, many threads on lighting, but I have just one question.

    Is there a plug and play halogen bulb that will work better than the OEM bulbs?

    I have the projector halogens

    I just put in PIAA Extreme White Plus in both low and high beams. Definitely better than stock but don't expect night into day lol. Wanted to stay with halogen for now. LED's for headlights isn't perfected and don't want to install a HID kit right now.
