I'd agree with you except for the PIAA. They did add a noticable amount of light to my Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. stock. Not as much as I get from my HID in the G35, but halfway in between. Also, HID is illegal to add without the proper reflector gear inside the housing. This isn't availabe yet for our trucks. Hopefully someone will make a new light housing kit to enable us to legally mount HID in the future.chrisarmada said:I think all those "super white" bulbs are just christmas lights. Cheasy christmas lights that burn out. Stockers are brighter 99% of the time. I just go with 80w replacements at 7.00 each (still the burn out problem of the bulb or harness), the next step is real HID. They are down to 299.00 at blinglights.com full kit with balasts in any color temp you want. I hear it is better to have projectors but then I look at all those Acura's out there with Factory HID with no projectors and it looks fine to me. Pattern is pretty decent on the Armada. I wonder is there anyone out there who has upgraded to HID on their Mada?
