I've tried a bunch.
Had a set of old 7" retrofit projector HIDs that I loved for years. Swapped them into my H1 years back and sold them with the truck.
When I bought my current JK, I tried several combos of bulbs, and HID setups with the stock reflectors, as well as the Delta crossbar housings. I didn't like the light output of any of them. Compared to my old projector HID setup, they really sucked. Either I could not see as well, or I was dazzling oncoming traffic or both.
I settled on the Heated Trucklights, and have been running them ever since. In Montana, I needed the heated function, but the light output was very good. Not quite as even as the old projector HIDS, but more than acceptable. And the cutoff is excellent.
I've been running them for 5 years now.
