Default Headlight questions bulb # and color? please help

I have a 04 I want to keep my stock headlights but want the white hid color does anyone know a bulb number or brand i should look into. I want a nice clean white glow or maybe a slight blue tone to the. Whats the difference between L.E.D and HID do i have to do wire harness or splicing with both styles? Sorry im not up to date on electrical I try to stay away from it.

A bulb will not give you the same output light color as a HID kit, you can get something that may resemble but you will not get the same exact color. If you want something decent look at Silvania or PIAA, you can get a whiter color than stock. Best bet is HID and from what your saying it would be 5000k color or with a bit of blue tint 6000k.

LED's are light emitting diodes.
HID are High intensity discharge.

HID is a plasma ball (or lighting) created within a glass tube.
LED is a photon produced by a semi-conductor

HID's will give you the best light output for the price, you should install a wire harness so get a kit made for your truck like from retrosolutions or theretrofitsource, some use the canbus system but my opinion is use a wire harness.

If you want to stay away from the electrical, get someone who knows what there doing install the kit. JMO, hope this helps
