i have the exact ones that are in the ebay add. i bought them strictly for looks. the halo's look sweet, but the projectors suck. the headlights themselves were a pain in the *** to try and fit in with all the added wiring, but all in all im pretty happy with them. i chenged out the halogen's with some 8k HID's and havent had a problem nor a complaint on brightness

headlights should be in the 4500-6000 range...they put the most light out

only reason i used 8k was to match my 8k fog lights... which make up for most of the lost light output from the shitty projectors. here are some pics of my lights:

just halo's


halo's plus headlights


halo's, headlights, and fog's

ok here is my full and complete opinion of the headlights:

the projector quality sucks. they do not shine bright enough nor far enough. however, that may have to do with the fact that i switched the bulbs to 8k HIDs.
for light output and quality i would definitely take OEM over these headlights. i bought them strictly for the look of the halo's and then put 8k HID's in my fog lights to accomodate for the decreased light output from the projectors

all in all, DO NOT buy these headlights for the projectors, stick to oem. if you want them strictly for the halo's, they're great

Hey man. I also live in canada and as law states you need to have day time running lights. How do those projectors you have look with that in mind. Is anything illuminated if u have your light switch set to off? Unreal truck btw. Those rims are gnarly

I could not agree more with you on the output. I had to put in 3500 hid's in the fog lights to see better at night.

I do have a question for scrambler did the hid'sin the projectors work better than the buds the lights came with? I am going to adjust the projects up more to hopefully see better.

Sorry but I am thinking about this, I haven't done it.

I saw the e-bay lights and liked the look but haven't purchased yet.

I think you got me mixed up with someone who has them.
