X2! I'm not interested in led or hid lights, as I think the led aren't as good yet and the hid, well I don't think are reliable.

I was considering going to the 9011 HIR bulbs, but wasn't sure if anyone had tried some LEDs that were worth a crap, tried a kit last time I had to replace and the pattern is horrible, afraid to go to HID because I believe it is hard on them to have them flick on and off

I have retro-solutions LED's in my high beams because the HID's take a while to warm up.

I have 100 watt hella 9005's in my high beams on my LLY, has a little ceramic ended pigtail to help protect the truck wiring, had them in for about 3ish years now, had one burn out, no other issues, I also have the 4 on diode ran on mine, so the lows don't turn off when the highs are on, makes a big difference
