Clear corners

So after a suggestion for some clear corners i started looking around breifly but i really know nothing about them. i dont want to spend much (definately under $100) and really have no desire to buy new head lights unless its a killer deal for some HIDs or something. after a quick google search i came across these and thought they might look good next to the stock headlights. what do you guys think are they any good or just trash? for $35 they look decent to me but what do i know.

I dont know about those ones with the amber circle, they look kinda cheesy to me. i like the idea of the white bulb that turns amber when it gets power. how much do those run?

I had those and they're just as good quality as stock. I recently sold them to another member for some 06 ranger corners, just for personal preference.

its not your turn signal, i don't think you need the amber strip. the ones from ebay come with amber bulbs. When they turn on, they will be amber, and no one will really notice or care if there is no amber in the day time.

i was worried about it at first too but then i learned that not having an amber strip is not the worst mod you can have to pull the attention of the cops aside. it looks good, so you should get them.

I've had 3 total sets of clear corners purchased offebay. One set was the first set i bought for my old ranger, were white housing. Black housing ones were next(the ones you are loooking at getting) to replace the white housing ones. And another set of black housing ones I got to mod. All have lasted atleast 3 years, and the 4 year old set look brand new. They are actaully on TrePaul86's truck right now.

As far as legality goes....i've been rocking clears since 02, and have never been pulled over for them. I think it's ones of those nit-pick cop things tho....ones that look at every single piece of a vehicle......Granted, Oregon isn't a yearly inspection state like some states, but you should be just fine with amber bulbs. Heck, my little brother has clears on his truck and is running clear glass bulbs. Heck, Trevor is rockin' those xenon blue aka BRIGHT WHITE bulbs in his.

I got my corners of Ebay and have been very pleased with them. Like all the guys are saying, get the black lined ones. My buddy RangerMuse got the white lined ones by accident and we where not to happy with them.
