OK I open to the up grade
Do you have specific brands I should look at?
The headlight assembly is a very easy removal and install. So I can do that myself.
I'm looking for increased light from the stock shaped headlight assembly used by FORD.
I want more light on the road using the factory type headlight......I don't want to blind anyone.

Using anything in the factory housings other than the factory bulbs will blind people. I'm not here to push my products, but they exist for this exact reason. Addiing HID/LED to the factory lights without a tuned projector is a disaster for overall output and oncoming traffic. I've tried all the options and offer all of them for sale, but I don't recommend using anything but the factory style halogens with the OEM housings.

^^^ yep. The only real way to get marked improvement from the headlights is to retrofit a projector and run either an HID or LED bulb.

I did see a post in another forum where someone ran some German bulbs that drew more power, so he ran a relay and some heavier duty wiring. The output was definitely improved but you almost end up spending the same amount of money to do a projector retrofit (yourself).
