Bulbs headlight upgrade help!

Hi guys,
I own a jeep liberty KK, and I dont like the yellow bulbs on the headlights.
I would like to change the hi/low bulbs as well as the foglight bulbs , for white ones, I don't mind if they look a lil blue.

I just want them to be better than the stock bulbs and that the bulbs for the Hi/low beam match the color on the foglights

I've searched piaa bulbs, silvania, and hella but I'm not sure on how white they trully are

If you could help me out with some pictures or opinions it would be great!

I have the Sylvania zXe bulbs in mine. The bulbs themselves have a slight blue tint, so you lose some brightness. However, the light they produce is very white and not blue looking at all. They're DOT approved and don't look like those horrible blue bulbs. I put them in around Feb 2013 and they're still going strong.

I got the sylvania silver stars - I think the high end ones. Much better then stock installed over a year ago. May go with Piaas or Wagners down the line. Put some Wagners in my gf's Camry from Rock Auto and they are great!

When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.

Best I have found are the Philips X-Treme Vision Headlight Bulbs, been running them for over 2 years now

Phillips XTP or XTV are pretty much the best you can get in the states.

Sylvanias are not good in the US

Anything that throws blue light is less lumens

I run them as well. They are the best Halogens I've used.

Good life as well. I run with my headlights on all the time.

I changed to Sylvania Silver Stars (the less expensive version) in 2009. They're still working but were never much of an improvement over the stock bulbs.

Mods include: full size spare, Mopar front tow hook. Mopar skid plates, rear recovery mount (trailer hitch with D-ring).

I replace my stock headlight bulbs with the Sylvania H13 Ultrastar's and I didn't see much improvement over the stock. I feel light I wasted $30 (eBay).
Now I am looking for a much bright legal headlight like the new luxury cars have.
If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears?

I love my LED's. Put them in last week and they are great. Not like HID's because they are designed for the Halogen reflector and don't scatter light.

Well, it looks like they pulled them. Here's a link to the same thing on Ebay though: http://www.ebay.com/itm/141363310434...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
