What bulbs are the best to replace the stock ones, they are horrible at night, can't see crap.

I got these and have been pretty satisfied with them.

They will probably burn out in 6 months but I bought a spare set at the price they are on Amazon.. LOL

I bought Sylvania Silverstar ZXE, love them. Put them in my Jeep & also my wife's car. Very bright & they don't have that blue haze to them.

Silverstar Ultras from Walmart. Pick up some new fog light bulbs too. I got some yellow Putco bulbs from a speed shop and love them. This is how they look from some else's perspective.

I got the silverstar ultras, but they still aren't as good as they could be.

One day I need to add the fogs and get a bit more light.

Yea, my ultra's were great when I put them in just over a year ago, now that they are getting old they aren't as bright as they use to be, but are still 20 times better than the stock bulbs. I am either going PIAA or those Philip extreme's, because if Tom has them, you know they are good!

When I was looking into new bulbs for my Jeep I considered the PIAA till I read some reviews that some people were getting their lenses warped from the extra heat they put off. That's why I went with the ZXE's.

Anyone with PIAA on here had that happen or heard of that?

I got these:

and these:

I was replacing these:

They were shorting out the wire assembly so after replacing both in passenger and driver I thought I should get new bulbs before it happens again.

Yea, i saw those on there while i was briefly browsing around trying to figure out what's what. I have those fogs in my "wish list" for later. But a $30 difference between lights is pretty big considering, figure if those philips are just as good, can save that money for gas, or beer.
