    I have a 96 S10 i bought from my dad and after all these years of him owning it and being in it,i never realized how poor the head lights were.Now it may be a combination of eyesight getting worse,or the fact that the my prius has HID's,and now i have to compare those to everything else,but i am sure that someone may know of the best and brightest possible lights affordable for this.Keeping in mind these are the units with the big lampsthat are daytime running equipped,unsure if it matters.so what does everyone think i can do?

    Just upgrade the harness with thicker wiring, and use the old harness to run relay's. S-10 have been notorious for cheap, thin headlight wiring which limits output.
