I like mine, but I also upgraded my headlight harness at the same time so im not sure what helped more. See my pics.
BTW I can definately tell a difference when I im the other F250 as far as seeing ability.

you can buy a prewired kit from one of the site's sponsors, or install a relay using battery power for the lights and the factory lighting wire as your coil voltage on the relay.

I have a silverstars in both the headlights and foglamps. The wiring for the headlights is factory, the fog lamps have been upgraded to a 9005 lamp run off a relay, wired by me. I would recomend this forsure.

I have silverstars in mine also. It helped alot compared to the old lights. I also upgraded my head light assembly to a new "diomond cut" style.

I put some Silverstar Ultras in about 3 weeks ago. I didn't notice any signifigant increase, i honestly feel that i lost some vis. maybe its just me, going from a yellowish halogen to a whiteish light could be part of it, just getting used to the different color of light reflected.
