What is the better harness?

I have a 1979 c10. New wiring harness. Looking for a way to get some brighter headlights. I like the look of the old school bulbs so I donít want to go to halogen. Which of the following is the best option? And what is the difference between the two from classic parts?

Are you wanting headlights or wiring harness for them?

Re: What is the better harness?

Ok I was kind of confused lol-the stock sealed beam are a halogen style bulb. For reference here is my adapter harness and its quite bit better quality than the ones listed although at a higher price too:

What bulbs are you gonna use? If you arenít changing bulbs then you donít need a better quality harness right now.

Re: What is the better harness?

I picked up the one from Classic Parts. I am using the original bulbs. This harness redirects the power direct from the battery and away from the switch. The original configuration has power going from the battery into the switch and then to the lights. Seems to make sense to me. Will post an update upon installation.
