    Best Headlight Upgrade 2017

    Looking for a reliable upgrade to give better vision on my 2017 XLT F150. Coming from a GMC Sierra with the stock headlights that blow these f150 stocks away in terms of seeing at night. Don' need the best, just a nice improvement.

    2 new weak headlight threads today.

    I think they both are halogen complaints. I guess I'd start by getting brighter bulbs? Sylvanias?

    I put some Sylvania ZXE in a Ram in 2015. They didn' last but about 6 months. I' not sure if that's just standard life or I got a flawed set....Hoping to find something longer lasting that's plug n play and won't break the bank.

    My wife’s ‘17 Edge is #1 outta comparable cars for worst headlights good thing the paddle shifting makes up for that. & a set of hids in the projectors.

    I just did a led swap in my ‘15 XLT.

    I like the GMC comment. Kick azz lights. But that’s all


    I think Ford is doing aight if it’s just the lights that suck

    Mitch, did you have to install any resistors or relays or are they plug n play?

    They look interesting, about the same price as the top of the line Sylvania bulbs which are still halogen.

    Plug and Play right out of the box for both sets. I did adjust both sets of lights down just a tad so they were not blinding oncoming traffic, but the difference is amazing! Not sure how I put up with the OEM halogens for so long!

    Good luck!
