2B1 "6054" headlight upgrade?

My shop trunk has dingy yellowish headlights.

What is the recommended upgrade sealed-beam headlights for my truck? I don't want to do HID's, just want brighter/whiter headlights.

thanks

my nissan has them.. you can get the h4 housing conversion and put bulbs in or i think sylivania makes a brighter sealed beam could be wrong.

I have a pair of PIAA fake HID bulbs in H4 lying around if you want those. They're a few years old and but still in near-new condition (installed for only 2 months). $20 and they're yours

Are they 200mm sealed beams (approx 7x6 rectangle?) Try Hella,

or you could try Cibie.
Either:
http://www.cibieusa.com/
or:
http://www.danielsternlighting.com/
All pretty good choices.

You won't be disappointed. I had them on my Starion. Definitely better than stock.

the only problem with silverstars is bulb life. I change both out when one goes bad, and they last like 18 months.

they even state it on the box in their comparison chart for bulb life.
