    I still can't decide myself what I think of them. I still have the old bulbs so I can go back to them if I need to.

    anybody got any pics of hyper white ones?

    IMO the amber looks better than the stock, but to be completely different id go with some DRLs that are white with a blue look to it. Some amber drls ive seen look so bright they imitate the HID look.

    this may be a dumb question, but do you guys have problems with the 4157 or 3157's burning out quick in the drl location? When I bought my truck it had I think 3157's in it and they burnt out within a few weeks of owning it, so I replaced them both with the same thing because I thought that's what went there. A few bulbs later I realized that 4114's are what go there and I haven't had any problems with them for well over a year now. I do like the looks of the amber drl's though, and wouldn't mind having them as well.

    Both mine and my dad's have had 4157's in place for about two years now without a problem.

    Those switchback bulbs are awesome! But too high.
    I put a set of Silverstars in my turn signals, blue coating but shine amber. Then the cool blue Silverstars in my DRLs. I use them a lot a night when I unlock the truck from my key fob.

    I have the switchbacks in the TB... they were like 25ish per bulb... that's not too bad considering how bright they are

    Nightime DRL pics? Sounds like an oxymoron but it's possible.

    Auto lights disabled, key to on position, shift into reverse to make DRL's come on, cover flash of camera and here's what I get.


    Straight on shot.

    even if you can fool the sensor on the dash... they still wont be on at night so why worry about what they look like at night? just doesnt make a whole bunch of sense
