New Headlights...

Whats yall's opinion on these projectors and lenses? I think they will look pretty fly on my Ranger since its a dark, maroon color. I gettin them at a great price. The guy is selling his Ranger for a newer one, and he told me that if I give him $75 and my old headlights and lenses we would be even. My only concern is that they tend to build up condensation inside the lenses. Anyone have any idea how to stop that from happening?

if you don't want condensation if your lights you have a couple options

drill a small hole underneath for the moisture to escape

or let the lens completely dry out and run a bead of silicone around the edges and teflon tape the headlight socket so moist air can't sneak in

The drill thing is a great idea, as for the lens company, thats a long shot, but worth a try. Thanks for the info!!

I think they look cool, even though I've seen some better ones on ebay. I'm jealous the older trucks have so much a better selection of lights compared to my 2004.
