Brightest H1 Bulbs

About to order these https://www.cjponyparts.com/headligh...3834&year=2011

The reviews say as far as lighting they're very bad so the bulb looking to replace. Anyone got any ideas?

yeah probably the Sylvania high-end bulb which I think is called "SilverStar"

be aware that the brighter bulbs do not last as long as the basic ones because they burn brighter and hotter; the expected life is on the package

I have switched all my vehicles to LED bulbs, including the fog light bulbs on my 2013. They are far brighter than halogen bulbs, produce a whiter light and use less power. Just do your research as there are a lot of cheap ones out there. The ones I got are from Hikari and I got them on Amazon. Not cheap at $89 but well worth it, especially after one on my wifes 4Runner failed and they warranty replaced it even though it was a year old. That was 3 years ago and I haven't had any issues since. I won't ever run halogen bulbs again.

^ can you use the LED bulbs in the regular reflector housing, without blinding oncoming drivers; or do you need to change the reflectors to projector lenses like with HID's?

The Hikari bulbs I got will work in either a standard housing or a projector housing. The bulb is able to be rotated inside the bulb mount to provide the correct beam pattern for any particular housing. I didn't need to make any adjustments for projector bulbs, but did rotate 45 degrees in the reflector housing on my wife's high beams.
