    2006 TRD Double Cab- I replaced the headlight assemblies about 2 years ago with factory replacements because the originals were really hazed over. These have been "ok" but still not very bright, especially compared to my 2019 tundra. Can anyone suggest some bulbs I could try that would be brighter than the stock bulbs but which would not require new wiring harnesses etc?

    Maybe an unpopular opinion but I have run Sylvania Silverstar Ultra's (the orange pack) for the last 4 years and I believe they are the brightest out there without going LED or HID (which are garbage in our headlight assemblies). That being said I usually only get 1.5 years out of a pair. You can buy other Sylvanias that last significantly longer but I am willing to sacrifice longevity for brightness. Pair the Silverstar Ultras with LED fogs (LED assemblies, not an LED bulb in the stock assembly) and I think you'll be happy with the result. For what its worth, I bought these

    and I absolutely LOVE them. I've had them for about 6 months with no issues and no water getting in the lens'. I wash my truck by hand so I don't know if they will hold up to high pressure when sprayed but I couldn't be happier with them for the price.
