which do you think is better

My truck came back from the body shop with crappy lights that weren't adjusted and some weren't working so i need new headlights fog-lights and those rear license plate lights.

for headlights my choices are

GE nighthawk platinums
or sylvania silverstars

and i'm not sure which would be a good brand for the fogs or rear lights. please give your opinion on the fogs these are just for now until i can afford my HID's also on a side note has anyone wired HID's into there reverse lamps and second does anyone know how those little license plate bulbs come out. of an 09 bumper.

I'm very happy with my Silverstar Ultras. You can get them from Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more for 20 a pair too.

I have these lights and love them. Wont be running anything else for now one. I dont know about 80% more light than silverstars but they are very bright. Its up to 80% more light from what Philips says. Ive compared mine to my buddies Ultras and they really are brighter than them. They give off a nice white light too. A lot of people say that the Silverstars dont last very long.

Yup, stock ranger headlights are not done properly either.

This picture doesnt really do a good job of showing how much light is actually put out but gives an idea on the color. In person they throw more light
