Headlight help

So on my ways home from work about 20 mins ago in the rain I realized that my headlight output completely sucks. I would like to address this but not sure what to do, I'm not a fan of projectors on our body style so thought about maybe some hids? Any suggestions?

Yes Mario. Its is a light bulb and ballast that you hook up with an adapter to your stock head light plug.

Stock bulbs just brighter. I like mine have them in two ram trucks and in the wife's Durango and in the fog lights. I found them cheaper on Ebay but Walmart and most part stores have them.

Also add some lights behind your grille for additional 'punch' through the darkness and rain when needed.
