Yeah for sure they do. They are bright as well. They throw a little amber when you look at them but not as much as the orange colored ones, kinda gives it a cleaner look.

I can't believe it, but i vote NO on black headlamps/corners on your truck. It won't match all the chrome that you like and have on it. imo....the black headlamp/corners would look very out of place.

I have to agree with Shane. The clears look really good on that model truck.

Silverstar needs to make 194's that are coated with the same stuff as the 3157's...i'd rock silverstars like that. I like my Amber's to match.
