Default how do I adjust headlights correctly?

I recently got some new OEM headlights.
But I try to adjust them but they just look weird shining on the ground, they are blotchy or spotty, how ever you wanna say that.
And then the drivers side has two concentrated beams on the road, while the other side only has one visible beam shining on the road.

So how do I adjust them so the light on the ground is evenly spread, like normal? Is there maybe a certain way the bulb must be put or what?

you have to find the adjusting screws
then pull up almost against a wall or door on level ground
make a mark like a + where the headlight beam is
then back up 25 feet, still on level ground
adjust the light beam to hit the center or slightly above the +
you may have to adjust it just a little bit more

Ok, looks a little bit better. But I also want fog lights to give more light.
My truck is an SLT model, and it already has all the wiring and relays and what not, so to install fogs in the bumper... I just need a switch and the lights correct ?
