    I know I’ve seen stuff on these but can someone point me in the right direction. My wife’s sequoia needs lights. But I don’t wanna blow 1k on headlights. I can’t get an answer of what is brighter on either company just wondering if anyone can help.

    Have you tried the cheaper options yet? I recently just bought some 6K LED bulbs on Amazon and they’re much brighter than stock. Probably gonna piss some fools off :rofl:

    I have the morimoto hid bulbs in my retros. They are bright. Think I went with the 4500k due to the fact that you get better lighting over all spectrums of weather good or bad, fog etc. The harness is also more plug and play and has enough length to reach where ya need it if routes right. I didn't want splices as they are each a failure point potentially.
    I realize your question wasn't directed at HIDs exactly but hope this helps.
