I would like to install different heads and fogs on my truck -- I want a whitish color not blue -- any ideas on what brand or company that make these ?? I woul also like to have the head and fog look the same ...
Thanks for any suggestions !!
I'm very pleased with my Osram SilverStar H4 headlight bulbs. Note that these are clear, not blue tinted like the Sylvania SilverStars, otherwise the same. The Sylvania's have lower light output due to the loss of light passing through the blue tint (same as all tinted bulbs).
Phillips HiVisibility 9006 bulbs for the fogs would be very comparable. http://suvlights.tripod.com/suvlightscom/html/halogen-hb4-9006.htm

I just installed Liteglow headlamps. These are rated at 100/80 watts. These are very bright white light. I used these in combination with some yellow fog lamp buls, and it looks really nice. I wanted to mimic the lexus look. I purchased them off of ebay for 21.49 shipped. The guy that shipped them to me was cool, and always answered my email. I have had other ultra white bulbs but they were crap and burned out, so I took a chance with these. No problems yet. Go to [url]http://www.liteglow.com/ also this guy I bought them from has a 90 day warranty. P.S. To all the others out there reading this and are thinking of buying bulbs on ebay, I got ripped off because I wanted to save a couple bucks, and the guy stole my money, and about 50 other peoples also. If you want nice lights you can pm me and I'll give you this guys e-mail, then you can take it from there.

I have the PIAA Super Whites in both, my headlights and fogs. They are not the newest and absolute latest technology from PIAA but they are very white and bright. I too did not want that bluish look that all of the lowerd Hondas/Acuras have here in my town.
Trust me on the whiteness of them. They make the stock lights look really yellowish.
Plus w/ PIAA you know you are getting quality too.

After my PIAA Super Whites burned out, I replaced my headlights and fogs with some Xenon bulbs that I got off ebay. Overall, I think the PIAA's were better and are worth the $$.

I had the Super White PIAAs on my 00' Taco but they kept on burning out --- I couldn't keep spending 80.00 for a pair --- :eek:
I'll try the Sylvania's for a couple of months ---if that doesn't satisfy me then I'll go back to the PIAAs
Thanks again !!

I had a set burn out on my too on my 01 4Runner...but I found out that it was from touching the bulb and getting the oils from my fingers on the bulbs....that greatly reduces the life of the bulbs. No I never touch the bulbs w/ my bare hands.

I got 20 months out of my headlight set - on 1 of the bulbs the low beam burned out. Other bulb and fogs were still fine - saved those as spares

sylvania makes a bulb for the headlight and fog light called "cool blue." Blue tint on bulb but they burn white when on. Bulbs are only $15 a pair at pep boys. I replaced both bulb pair in the heads and fogs with no complaints so far. Looks pretty cool.
