HID projector poll

OK, so as many of you know, putting HID lighting systems in reflector headlights causes a lot of glare to on coming traffic. It didnt stop me from putting HIDs in my truck, but its still something that I dont like about the set up.

There are several aftermarket projector headlights for pre 2001 rangers, but nothing for the '01+ models.

Out of sheer boredom, I decided to make a poll of how many people would be interested in buying projector headlight housings for their '01 and newer Ranger.

Maybe Ill send the results of this to the companies that make these aftermarket headlights and they will see that there really is a market for these things!

Ya, shane and I both have em... There's hardly any glare, even being lifted, I get flashed maybe one a month by a civic or something... The 01 and later housings are nice and don't produce a lot of glare... plus I don't like how projectors cut off the beam.
