Icon5 So I had to buy new headlights for the f150 need opinions

So over the summer the current headlights got ruined. It got so hot and humid that it caused the sealant to melt and leak into the head lights and make them very nasty. So I figured if i'm going to buy new ones I'd get some with leds already built it. I didn't like any of the one piece headlights and none of the projector headlights really stood out to my liking. So I got these. Now here's my question. It has an led strip running under the headlight. Should I wire it up or no? I wish I could change the leds to an amber color and hook it up to the turn signal. I may do that later on down the line if I get the guts or the extra cash for another set, Anyway so here is what I have. Tell me what you think I should do.


::disclaimer::

I know some probably wont like these, but I picked up a set of lightning style led tail lights and these were the only led head lights/corners I could find.

Yeah I totally understand, it'll give you something to do when it gets cold out.

The ones that leaked sealant were those the eBay ones or the stock ones?

I voted not to hook them up. Might change my mind once I see a picture of them on your truck.
