Icon5 Headlights for the explorer..opinions?

I found a set of projectors that look okay. What do you guys think?





I think they look better in black, but dont think I want to go black. I will more then likely go with these if I get new ones, but I am considering the projectors.

Have you considered taking the headlights in your last picture and retrofitting projectors?

I've never heard of ebay projectors being very good

I think the black will really pop in your 'sploder. it doesn't necessarily have to be projectors but black would look really slick.

The black projectors do look better than chrome. I'd just get the regular headlights though.

3rd ones if they were black instead of chrome. The projectors would be okay, but definitely the ebay ones are cheap ****

Is this because I said something about liking everything but the lights? lol I think black would look cool but don't do ebay projectors. If you can't find stockish black ones, go with the clear ones (the 3rd choice)

Nah I was tossing the idea around even before I bought it from my friend. I just think black headlights would look off with the silver.
