The one piece eBay Halo Headlights (REVIEWS WANTED)

Well I used to think they were kinda cheesy but they have been growing on me more and more lately.

They are the style sold on Ebay. One main thing I like about them is being able to have High and Low beams separate from each other. And Projectors for the HIDs and you dont see many on the road

I found the sight that actually makes them it called Spyder Auto

These are the lights in question


Couple questions about them
One is should I get them on my truck?

Does anyone actually have some shots of them on their truck? And Post Them.

For the People that have them what are your thoughts on them? Reviews?

Also Does anyone have some night shots. Parking Lights On Lights on?
And Any of you have HIDs in them I would Like to here from you too?

Can someone post some cutoff pictures against a wall and then with the highbeams on?

I wouldn't do it. If you want a set of projectors I'd give the retrofitting mod a shot with a spare set of lights.

You need a set of projectors, your lights are glare-rific

They aren't the worst thing I've ever seen, a projector retro like Robbie from Oregon did would look better though.

kk i ordered them and installed them in around 2 hours, they look amazing! low beams and hi beams are good, and the halos are a nice touch. i will have pictures up by Saturday or Sunday if you can hold off till then.

I've had a set on my truck for about a year and haven't had any problems with them. I have some pics on my profile you can check out if you want to see them. I'll see if I can get some night shots uploaded for ya

I've seen black ones on F-150s and Expeditions and I really don't like them too much. The website says that they aren't compatible with HIDs but I've had HIDs installed in mine for about 6 months and nothing's gone wrong with them.

These one piece headlights suck so incredibly bad its not even funny.

Here is the "cutoff" they provide (if you want to call it that)



Here are Real projectors with a Real cutoff in your ranger headlights.

I've got mine adjusted to have just as good of a cutoff (if not better) than yours. Whoever had those installed on their truck didn't know what they were doing.

You have the same headlights, and the same "eyeballs" that those have.

There is no way to eliminate the eyeballs without internally modifying the projector, unless you know some sort of magic.

You can't adjust your way out of certain things.

Morimoto's are the defacto standard for aftermarket projectors. They blow away nearly all of the competition.

I think the eyeballs are from the highbeam reflectors that are on

You may have alot of experience and know alot about the things you do, but I know what I have and what it looks like. I'm sure you have good quality stuff, but I don't have the kind of time to go screwing around with projects like yours all the time. I spend nearly 15 hours daily with schoolwork. I'd rather just buy something and install it in an hour or so and still look good to me. Personally, I don't like the way your housings look; they look like ricer lights to me. It's my opinion, and we obviously differ but to each his own I guess.

They're definitely from the high beams being on.

I then challenge you to take 3 photos just like mine and show your cutoff projection at the same distances as I have. Please use the marks on the pavement as distance references.

I usually buy the best I can get my hands on, money is no factor. Also, I'm determined to build the best I can of whatever I'm doing (Engines, LEDs, Lights, whatever) - So I make time over the 2 jobs I work totaling about 70 hours a week.

My statements are made solely on the purpose of comparing objective results. Things that can be measured like light output, cutoff sharpness, lumens, angle. Saying "I think yours look ricey" is a subjective thing. You may like blondes, while I like girls with black hair. I think your whole front end is tacky but do I add that to deface the optic performance of your lights? No - because it is not value added information with the current comparison. I could have painted them any color (or not, just left them chrome).

I'm just going to end all of this right here and not worry about it. I'm not accepting your "challenge" or whatever else you want me to do. I have an opinion and you have your own. Get over it and let's move on.

I like the pre-built lights a lot more than the modded ones.. The black ones are tight! I think they'd be the **** on my black truck.. The chrome ones look better on Bravetitans red truck though.. Those lights look like something Ford would have done, and they SHOULD HAVE.

How much are you guys paying for a set on average?? Is the light output on both high and low beam better than the stock headlights??
