    I'm running 9005 bulbs in both spots, and haven't had any problems for the last 4 years.

Does it blind other drivers? how is the light pattern? looking at the bulbs the 9006 has some paint on the tip, the 9005 does not. Thanks in advance
    I thought allot about doing that but said enough and just put the HID's in. Neither the 9006 or 9005 put out anywhere near the amount of light I get from the HID's.

    I contacted the owner of the site that Rayvoy posted last night. He said that he is running the denali headlights and 2011 in them. Said that the light output in amazing. I am going to put my 9005 bulb in my low beams for a few days and see if I blind people. If not I will order 4 2011 for my truck because I plan on getting a set of the denali lights soon. They are supposed to be 3600 kelvin.

    The 9011 and 9012 claim 75% output of HID.
