I believe Sabersport is a good company.

Nevermind. Their corners have the amber reflector in them.

Sabersport is who I bought both of my sets from. Good guys to deal with. They actually answer questions and such.

Dude painting the corners is stupid easy, just do it. That makes no sense having some one else do them and then having to pay for shipping.

when you buy aftermarket headlights, do they come with the mounting studs along with the plastic piece the sliding metal brackets lock into?

Mine are broke and its probably cheaper to get these than to buy new studs.

not all sellers pics are accurate about their product, when i got my 2nd set of clear corners, they didnt have that orange reflector in the pic, and they did when they showed up on my door

I can't remember who I bought them from, but I have no complaints with mine. I got them when the head light mod was still in it's infancy.
