Headlight of the month! What are you using?
I settled on doing an HID bixenon projector install after trying LED bulbs. I was happy with how bright the LED bulbs were, but it takes a lot of messing around to get them aimed right..if the bulbs were aimed a little too high, then you blind other drivers, and your high beam will wash out and only light tree tops and the sky. If you fiddle enough, you can get them aimed right and they work great..but they fail randomly. Still better than the halogens for brightness.
I bit the bullet and did the bixenon retrofit after my LEDs gave up the ghost, and this was one of the best( simple )mod I've done to my FJ. My cutoff line is a few inches lower than the side windows on a Hyundai Elantra, so blinding people is a thing of the past, yet they cast the light further ahead than properly aimed halogens and LED bulbs.
This is what I recommend if upgrading headlights. My kit cost me about $130CDN, shipped. It included everything to finish the job( bixenon projectors, 2 angel eyes halos, 2 devil eyes halos for the lenses, bulbs, ballasts, and wiring harness. That's half the price of 2 Lifetime LED bulbs.
