    comrades!

    low beam, as i understand is up top ( H- 11 )?

    high below ( 9005 )?

    i have non projector headlights, as far as i know


    anyone upgrade the bulbs?

    the stock headlights on the tradesman stink.

    any input is very much appreciated. and thank you.

    I did
    Philips H9s for the low beams to replace the factory long life H11s
    Philips 9011 high beams to replace the stock 9005
    as well as a slight height adjustment on the passenger side light.

    Very happy with the light output, much easier to see.

    did you have to cut the tab out of the H-9 to get them to work?

    Yes there is a very slight modification to both bulbs, but nothing intense or anything that took more than a few seconds.
    Do you know how and what to trim or do you need that information?

    I upgraded my bulbs only to 8500k xenon super white. I did the same bulb color for low, high and fog lights. It puts out a lot of white light and really helped my night driving. I did not aim the lights up at all since they were set by the dealer when the leveling kit was put on. I got my bulbs from Autolumination.com they are a dealer in quality bulbs and LED's and are really inexpensive. I ordered two complete sets in case one burns out but I have put them in all my other vehicles and they have lasted years.

    I will message you the info.
    Amazon is good for buying, they are just standard bulbs so nothing special except how much more light their is for cheap.
