    Hey fellow Tundra peeps. I am getting older and I need some more light from my headlights. Anyone install after market headlights that you absolutely were blown away by their light output?

    Have the bulbs ever been changed? They get weak over time and I found that replacing them with good Sylvania Silverstars do the trick.
    I have not been a HID conversion fan because they are too bright for oncoming traffic and turn out to be a pain to install and maintain.

    I have installed the Silverstar and it helped but i still feel like i need more of a rifle shot beam that reaches out further in front of the truck.. I hear what you are saying about the HID's Especially if the headlights are not adjustable. I don't know if mine are or not. Have you or anyone tried a new enclosure like a projector style with good success?

    I have not, but I have KC HiLites (4) mounted on the front and they give added light when needed. On my 4runner, I have an LED light bar mounted on the luggage rack and it will make it look like daylight outside when I turn that thing on. If you really wanted a lot of light, go with an LED light bar, even a small one mounted behind the grill will make a world of difference.

    you can always do a retrofit. or have someone else do it for you

    talk to @eledobleu or Check this out: https://www.tundras.com/threads/retrofit-pricing-options-info.3746/

    other thing that comes to mind is a light bar in the grill

    maybe a dumb question: are your lenses fogged? If so a lense restore may help.

    Leveled, led fogs. Much more to come
    I have a set of projector retrofits for sell. They are totally worth the upgrade. D3529359-E5B2-4519-BEA8-B8144E54B5A5.jpg
