I went with alpharex because I was looking for some sexy daytime running lights, which don't come on an XLT. There's a lot of info on these in this forum. They include distance as well

Looks great nice rig. I am looking for something with distance and minimal glare. I viewed this video and hope someone has some of these bulbs.

As others have mentioned the Alpharex and Morimoto make good lights for the Ranger. Now if you would prefer not to pay that price I would suggest replacing the bulbs with PIAA Xtreme White Plus bulbs. Yes they cost a bit more than the average bulb but they will last compared to other broght halogen lights and give better light compared to factory.

Here's how sexy you can jazz up your XLT. But you gotta pay if ya wanna play! No disappointments with the Luxx LED's.
I wouldn't waste your time and money on just bulbs.

Please don't.

LED bulbs in Halogen reflectors are no good for other drivers.

Perhaps you can supplement your Halogen headlamps with a good LED driving light like Baja Designs, or Doode Dynamics. Cheaper than aftermarket headlamps, doesn't blind others if aimed correctly, and improves your vision. This approach worked well for me in my previous Halogen lighted vehicles.
