If you have a chance take some before & after pics of how they light up the road, I'm curious how their light output is.

I think he meant take a pic of how your lights right now look and then a pic of the new ones. Best to take the pic in the same location so you can see the true light output.

^^ Exactly.

Step 1: Park truck
Step 2: Turn on lights
Step 3: Take picture of road/objects in front of truck
Step 4: Put in new lights
Step 5: Take a picture similar to that in step #3
Step 6: Upload here

Read this and you understand why bulbs with a blue glass are not going to be better than bulbs with out a blue glass.

Silverstar Ultra's are pretty cheap on Ebay. Around $20-25 shipped. I have some and they rock. Not blue at all, but slightly whiter than the stocker bulbs but definately brighter.
