Default Who knows led bulbs ?

My truck takes 9006 headlight bulbs. My headlights have always kind of sucked. Thinking of trying so LED bulbs. But when you put 9006 into Amazon there are a ton of different ones with different shapes etc.. I just want a basic BRIGHT white bulb.. no funky blue stuff or anything just a bright white one that puts out some light. Any ideas what I'm actully looking for ?

Not sure on actual bulb numbers for your application but 6500 is the bright white, and then there are different lumens (strength). I went with something in the middle, very happy with them. Depending on your options you may have to add a load to the circuit to make things work correctly.

They are blinding for 2 reasons...
1. Not properly adjusted.
2. Lifted/leveled and lights not adjusted afterward.
a properly aimed headlight is not blinding no matter the bulb.

I did a good amount of research before settling on Beamtech for my truck. Reasonable pricing, good product and zero issues in 2 years. When I 1st installed them the stereo would have static on any FM station. Called the company and they sent filters to plug into each bulb and issue fixed.

It also seems like more people drive around with their brights on.

I'm on several enthusiast FB forums for motorcycles, boats, cars etc. and NONE of them compare to the detail and attention you receive on traditional forums.
