Need help finishing my LED conversion

Hey guys, I've got all the exterior lights on my Suburban swapped out with LEDs, with the exception of my headlights. I want a light that is bright and white (non of this blue light stuff) but I'd like it to look as close to OE as I can get. Anyone have any ideas? Here's some pics of the LEDs I've got. Thanks

Are you open to any non-LED ideas? I used LMC's headlight relay harness with Sylvania Silverstar headlights. They put as much or more light on the road than anything I've owned.

I've looked at them yeah, do you have any pictures of them on the truck? They look a little too chromed up in the LMC magazine.

Re: Need help finishing my LED conversion

It's not an LMC headlight, Sylvania makes them. Regular glass but puts out better light than regular lights. The relay harness makes the headlights get their power on a shorter path, from the battery to the headlights instead of the factory path into the cab and through the headlight switch then back out to the headlights. This prevents voltage drop and gives brighter lights. The upgraded bulbs with the relay harness make a really big difference.
