[UPDATED] Better headlamp options?

Canít live with my Ď05 3500 headlights anymore. Canít hardly tell when they are on. Any decent options these days? Iím open to replacement bulbs or even full on replacement housings.

There is only one GOOD replacement, projector HID's. Be prepared to spend some money though.

Lights, steering and brakes are the 3 things you should not cheap out on.

I have these in my 03, i wouldnt run stock 03-05 headlights if i had too.

I just bought new headlights for $108 for the pair. Hard to believe I got them thru Wal-Mart online. I'd forgotten what clear lights looked like on my truck!

Ended up biting the bullet and getting some housings fitted with projectors from RetroShop. The difference was unbelievable. Night and day doesnt even begin to describe the difference. As good, if not better than any new vehicle i've been in with factory HIDs. Wasn't cheap, but I'm more than satisfied with the results. https://www.facebook.com/retroshopheadlights/

I just put the Silverstars in and I do not see ANY difference! Are the Ultra's actually better?

With clear headlights yes big difference. I almost don't use the brites at night. The ultras have a longer throw
