Lightbulb HID bulbs or entire headlight kit?

Hi All,
What are your suggestions; changing the entire headlights or just change to HID bulbs to get brighter lights on the 2011 Ram?
What are the recommended bulbs for this truck?
Thanks for your input.

Most would suggest that if you go to HID's that you retrofit your headlight capsules with some projectors to get a very clean light pattern. HID's tend to scatter light all over within the stock capsule.

You can get replacement headlight capsules with projectors in them but I have not seen any that I particularly like. Most of them have little incandescent lights meant to simulate LED's and incandescent halo rings that are normally pretty weak.

So, I am gonna retrofit my headlight capsules with projectors to improve my HID light.
