#1 they'll fit perfectly. The clear corners are garbage, quality sucks. I went through 2 sets of them before I got my 06s

Dont buy clear corners from xrteam. The ones pictured are different than the ones they send you. The show black housing ones, but they are really the ****ty white housing ones.

I bought mine from them and was suprised to see the white housing ones when I opened the box. I emailed them and they said "yeah we know, sorry. we'll give you $3 back". I didn't care about the $3 but didn't want to have to pay to ship them back and then wait for a refund before I could buy new ones so I kept them. =/

They did the same exact thing with me. You can't find the black backed ones anywhere now it seems.

I did the same thing but instead they wanted me to go out and take pictures to prove that what they advertised wasnt what they sold. Needless to say i still have my crappy clear corners but oh well such is life.

As much as I like all clear lights, I would go with option 1. They look a little nicer and will suit your truck well.

Corners are easier than the headlight IMO. Less bake time and less to tape off. I think I had mine in there for 12 minutes at 200 degrees. Then I painted the entire corner part and the lip of the clear cover.
