new headlights and cb antenna installed

ill post pics tommorow :P

actually i have to wash my truck tonight and i might snap some pics ..

i bought the cheap ebay headlights black housing , i had to exchange two of the back brackets on them with stock headlight brackets because they just wouldnt work . i didnt want the blacked out corners because i think the orange leaves the truck lookin cleaner .

also picked up a wilson 4' tunable to put my cobra in with .

ill try to get pics tonight !! :D

would you sell me your old lights or lend them to me so i can convert my present lights into HID? well real HID not the junk kits ppl buy. and i will need the lights off while i do the work. an extra set of lights allow me to work on them longer.

one light is damaged . thats the reason i bought them instead of doing them myself :(

ive done plenty of headlight mods (baking and blacking out) on other cars , and i would have done them to my stocks, but one was damaged so i was forced to buy these..

lucky it worked out for the better though :)

real HID is not that difficult . find some on ebay off of a late model car , get the various components you need, cut out the back of your stock light and fit them in. i have a couple friends that have done this a while back and it works out perfect. i dont have the time to mess with it though .. and at the hieght i am now , with the silverstars , i get enough ppl flashing their lights at me on 2 lane roads lol !

Truck looks good, you ever think about getting clear corners? I think they would look really good on your truck with the crome bumper and grill.

i really like the orange honestly . it doesnt stick out as much in person , the camera recognized it oddly and emphasized it . in person it looks really clean .

its something about orange on a car/truck that i like. there are too many vehicles out with clear and red now . having orange sets it out away from the herd .

if anything though , i will put a slight smoke on the corners. like the signal* smoked corner lamps are for hondas .
