    Go with a more reputable brand name company. Lots of us use ddm tuning, opt7, jdm, hikari, morimoto. (Sorry if I left anyoysne out) lots of write ups on here. Just use the search function on the right of home screen and put in any of those names. There will be tons of threads on these lights. And you can definitely get them all (I believe) for less than $250 for BOTH your highs and lows. So they don't break the bank my any means. I think you'll be pleased by any of these companies. I have personally had ddm, and opt7. Both are very capable of putting light down the road. Anyways, welcome to the club.

    BTW, both lights, highs and lows are the same. And fogs too. All H-11's. Just noticed you had a 9005 listed on your post

    on my old truck they were all different bulbs lol. thanks for pointing that out. Amazon is only so good. better then ebay but still. so those are the brands i need. so i would need 2 pairs then. pair for headlight pair for fog. n they are all the same? i didnt know that. lol

    i googled the 3 names and searched a bit. with price in mind

    Avoid LEDs if you care about performance. See post#14 here for some comparison info:

    Also because of the reflector housing the LEDs have a huge amount of light scatter, blinding oncoming drivers. If you want to convert to LED you need to do the housings as well not just the bulb.

    I tried the led bulbs for headlights. It was not a good idea. The housing and/or reflector doesn't seem to work well. I put the regular bulbs back in and placed led in fog lamps. The two different light colors are a good look imo.
