So, about 6 months ago I upgraded my headlights with some smoked headlights I purcahsed off ebay. I thought they would be lightly smoked but these are dark smoked. Now, I drive around at night with my brights on barely able to see. I have the really bright light bulbs in there too. Forgot the exact brand. What is everyone suggestion to get the brightest lights possible. I need to change my headlights (obviously), does anyone recommend a place to buy them from? What are my option for brighter lights?
Get rid of the smoked lense? Seems like the obvious answer.
HID's aren't really HIDs unless you get rid of the reflector housing and switch to a projector housing. Of all of the "HID" kits out there I've seen for these trucks only one of them changes the housing and I can't recall whose it is.
I specialize in performance and suspension mods.
We developed the Reverse Shackle SD spring swaps for D60 '85-04 and D60 '05 up axle swap with suspension for the OBS.
We developed the B mod, Bilstein special valving, suspension and handling cures for the Excursions.
We know what it takes to make a OBS or SD ride fantastic!
We only carry the BEST parts and never compromise just to get a sale.

The first thing that comes to mind is that both smoked headlight covers and retro-fit non DOT approved HID bulbs in housings not designed for them are illegal, so you probably shouldn't do that unless you are a criminal. I've been so blinded by some of those retrofit kits that I've been tempted to turn around, follow the truck and fix the headlights with a hammer. True street legal retrofit kits are a different matter - but trucks vary the headlight aim so much with different loads that overly bright headlights can always be a safety risk for on-coming drivers.
