Not brighter. As you load weight in the back, it makes the front point higher. Get a nice long screwdriver. There is an adjustment point in a hole,in the engine compartment. Should show how to do this in the owners manual.

Yeah, I've encountered Drivers like you!! Too Many of them!!

One, last month on a Drive thru Wyoming, had the Balls to Constantly High-Beam me after I'd Flashed him thinking that he Already had the High-Beams On - Super-Bright HIDs so bright they generated their own Haze.

I was trying to Warn Him that there were Antelope along the Road - hiding in the Glare of his Lights. In my Rearview, I saw his Brakelights swerve in a Panic Stop. I was towing, so wasn't going to Back the 1/4 Mi unless Absolutely Necessary, but watched until he started to Drive On some 30-45sec later.

I wonder if he started to Rethink his Excessive Lights, or just Wiped Out his Drawers and Drove On...

I agree with others that you probably need to aim them down a bit.
Semi Tractor Lights are becoming more of a Problem as the newest Aerodynamic Fenders actually Lower the mounting of their Headlights, requiring them to be aimed Higher in order to Illuminate to the Semi's Stopping Distance.

I had HID projectors retrofitted into my F150's headlight housings because The stock halogen bulbs were horribly dim. I have the projectors aimed so that the cutoff line is lower than the side mirrors of the car in front of me at an intersection. I never get drivers flashing at me. I tried HID bulbs in the stock housings but they created too much glare.

It's illegal, dangerous and extremely rude to have your headlights aimed too high. Please respect your fellow drivers and make sure to get them aimed properly.

It's easy to do it youself. Find out where the adjustment screw is and find a level area at the back of a Walmart facing the wall.
