TB custom, no LED headlights.
Is there a whiter replacement bulb I can use without going LED in the standard housing?
I still read about electrical issues that others have when doing that and even the owners manual says not to.
 
You can try Philips CrystalVision Platinum or some other halogen bulbs with closer to 6K color temperature. I put LEDs in the stock housings in my 21 Custom and then replaced the whole headlights with aftermarket quad projector lights with LED bulbs in them and have had no issues.

Stay away from Sylvania Silver Star, slightly whiter and brighter but only last about a year. When I complained Sylvania said they only last around 100 hours if I remember correctly. The Lasfit brand LED bulbs on Amazon are great and inexpensive. Tried several brands on my other vehicles and haven't seen any that top these. I have to admit, better than the factory LED headlights on my TB LT.
 
I ended up with the Osram cool blue advanced. Same company as the OEM bulbs.
Definitely whiter but no brighter.

I’d be like to know if LEDs can really hurt the electronics in a vehicle that came with halogens.
Now, I know the housing is different. But, in my ‘22 Colorado they still made a helluva difference.
 
In my opinion it should be better for the electronics because they draw less current. I doubt seriously if anything on the electrical end is different the slightest bit on the trucks with factory LED's except for the headlight itself. The only think I could think of is that an LED equipped truck would have smaller wiring so they can save 2 cents per vehicle. But the wiring is small to begin with, so I would be surprised it it were smaller.
 
Well, I guess I’m still looking. The Osram blue is ok. Not what I’m looking for.
I need H11 and H9 bulbs.
Are the H11 and H9 the same for every vehicle?
Some manufacturers don’t list my ‘23 TB.
So, can I simply find any H9 & 11?
 
Usually all H9 and H11 are the same. I have ran across on my mom's 00 Chrysler Concorde it had a "short" bulb that had a 90 degree bend instead of a straight base for the connector, but I forget what bulb type it was.
