    Search did crap for me, don't even know what to look for.
    Looking to replace the stock OEM head light bulbs (low beam) with something brighter, more powerful.
    NOT INTERESTED in adding, removing, rewiring, installing.
    WANT to remove the original bulbs and replace with brighter ones in place to have longer HEAD LICE :rofl:reach.

    Lot of the above are LED lights that require wiring and modifications. Don't want that. Looking to remove/replace bulbs with brighter ones. Don't even know what to look for.

    I put in Silverstar Ultras, they are definitely brighter and whiter than stock - but that isn’t saying much.

    If you're okay with plugging in another halogen bulb, you'll be fine plugging in the wiring harness that is already connected to the LED bulb. Are you trying to stay with halogens only, for some reason?

    Don't mind a simple plug-in but I have seen people installing modules, boxes, transformers, extra fuse boxes, etc. for lights. I don't want to modify any electrical things.

    I would assume a lot of those devices you are seeing installed are for high lumen off roading led lights, installed on various places around their trucks. A simple plug and play head light is a common route for a lot of vehicle owners to go, I'm guessing

    Someone mentioned Vosla H11 100x and was happy.
    I’m in the same boat

    I installed LED lights with harness (included) was pretty happy until 3 months later I got flickering.
    Maybe that would not of happened if I had used a higher end product. But it is too much of a pain in the pants for me to constantly learn by error. This is why I am opting just just to find a much brighter halogen light over the OEM. Good luck

    I have no problem working on anything mechanical BUT with the new vehicles, I will NOT touch any electrical parts since the voltage(s) are controlled by the main computer and trouble will happen.
    How many times somebody installed LEDs in place of OEM bulbs (head lights, brake light, signal lights, plate lights, interior lights) and shit hit the fan big time?
    The old times of adding a light, pulling some wires and connecting a fuse are over. Now the voltage as to be balanced, power has to be controlled, etc.

    Interesting. Any pics on which tab to remove? Or is it very obvious which one?
    Never mind
