I agree with HID being the best fix - if you ONLY want to change the bulbs in the OEM headlights you might try using the HELLA off road 80/100 watt bulbs in the headlights and the 80 watt bulbs in the fogs with ALL coming on when the high beams are energized - I used this configuration for years with success before doing a headlight upgrade.

Opt7 is a nice setup that's what's in my 2012. In my 2005 is an eBay setup from along time ago. The opt7 kit should plug directly in and run issue free for you

Do you have a low and a high with the Opt7? do you change Fogs also so it all matches?

What watt is stock bulb?

35watt bulbs and only run lows. We go missing in the diesel so the dogs are submerged a lot and didn't want the bs of blown ballasts or bulbs
