Default Sylverstars Ultra and ZXE review

I have a 2012 Reg Cab 4x4 with single bulbs in headlamps and Installed Ultras in headlights and ZXE's in fogs (H13 heads, 9005 ZXE fogs). Drove around last night and noticed the headlights are now a little brighter, (whiter) but the fogs are noticeably brighter. I imagine that is because the fog light housing is much smaller and casts a more EXACT light, where the headlight assembly casts a much broader, more dispersed beam. Yes, I took off the grill but it takes 5 minutes! Adjustment was easy too as there are holes in the engine bay wheel well that you can stick a LONG skinny extension into, and adjust the level pretty easy! I guess I'm happy I did it, especially the fog lights. Now we'll see how long they last!

The zxe's I had in my 04 were whiter not brighter, like most reports said they burnt out in less than a year, so I went back to running equally bright bulbs that cost half as much and last twice as long. I would not recommend the zxe's.

After jumping on Silverstar's website, they recommend for low beams, an H11 Ultra; high beams = 9005 Ultra; and for fogs; a 9145 Silverstar.

A RetroSolutions HID kit would have given you better results for not much more & comes with lifetime bulbs.

Yes, went with the 9005 for fogs at the advice of a friend.

Yeah-I've got a faster snowmobile than him so maybe this is his REVENGE! LOL.
No-we'll see. The fogs really light up the area the regular headlamps don't, but I won't be surprised if something melts!

just a 9005 fog is a worthwhile upgrade...i cant justify the cost of silverstars...the zxes here are 64.99 i think
