New Headlights, 04 Ranger

I took my headlights apart and off today and noticed I really need to get new running lights. I though I should just get new and maybe upgrade my lights. I have a 2004 Ford Ranger Regular Cab but I don't know what kind of lights to get or upgrade to.

Thanks to anybody who can help with this. :)

Is that a place to buy them or is that a type of replacement light?

just be sure you DON'T touch the actual bulb or it will burn out really quick

Okay, they are upgraded! I upgraded to the Sylvania SilverStar ULTRA Halogen Headlights (http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web..._5080129-P_x_x) and then bought new running lights.

Thanks for the help guys!

How big of a difference have you found between them and the regular bulbs?

Thanks. When it got dark I went for a test drive and really liked them, so much brighter than my old ones.

Now I just need to clean the holders. Any tips for that? They don't look horrible but I wish they were a little cleaner.
