I tried them briefly on my 34, didn't like em. Went back to standard quartz halogen. Also wied my halogen headlamps them with relays which made them a lot brighter than standard installation.

I dont think they are any brighter - but should be the replaceable bulb (H4?). The tri-bar is there for looks - and you can put signal light kits in them too. You can also search and get brighter bulbs, some are 100W high beams - those are brighter.

Have them too and they're there for looks rather than function.

I would not go with the signal light kits. I was at a stop light not too long ago and a fellow rodder was across the intersectiion in the turn lane. His lights were on and I could not see his turn signal at all.
Turn signals are better off somewhere else IMHO.

THIS^^^
I have a bulb set up for my truck that uses the h4 bulb.. it's a little brighter, but thats from compare'n them to non halog bulbs..
like said above, wire'n the lights with a relay feeding them makes a HUGE difference.. in my truck the headlights got 11.9 volts with the power going the way the factory did it (battery /cab/switch/headlights)
now the switch only is the relay trigger and the lights get 14.5 volts when running and 13.4 when off the battery..
