Try to get Silverstars for it instead. I have tried the brite whites and the cool blues.... Silverstars are the way to go!

Try H13 (9008). Fits the following applications:
05 Durango, 04-05 F150, 04-05 Freestar, 05 Escape, 05 Excursion, 05 F250, 05 Freestyle, 05 Mustang, 04-05 Monterey, 05 Mariner, 04-05 Sentra.
PIAA is the best choice, a little costly, but well worth the investment. The cheaper bulbs carry limited warranty and burn out after the first year. NOKYA would be my second choice.
Hope this helps!

So far silverstars are not made in the H13. Nokya makes a cool blue bulb, but my understanding from another forum, is that they do not give as much light as the OE Sylvanias. Sylvania does make an Xtravision, which I have in mine and it does give more light than the OE.

I had a set of PIAA Platinum SuperWhite bulbs, H4, on an old van, and those things were amazing. They were rated at 80W/80W. I then bought a car and put some PIAA Xtreme White bulbs in that were normal wattage 65/45....not impressed. You get the color, but the bulbs seemed much dimmer than the stock and like little maglights compared to the PIAA SuperWhites.

In either case, if you are looking for lights that light well, I would highly recommend a higher wattage bulb to compensate for the bulb coating out of experience. You also might as well save some cash on PIAAs and try another type of bulb. I think there are a lot of alternatives out there that will offer similar performance for a lot cheaper. Since the price of PIAAs keep going up, the alternative is sounding better. PIAA is abusing the brand recognition.
