im REALLY on the fence with these but i kind alike em. I almost like the chrome ones more than the black ones. Hmm.... i might dig them alot more with the HIDs installed. can we use these style projectors with HIDs? or will we still get the infamous thread derailing glare issues here to?

Someone needs to pick a set up and mount them. I didn't see them chrome ones until they posted the pic in here. I think I like them better.

*Notice on the last pictures of the red truck the large gap due to the plastic deal missing from 05+ trucks vs. the white truck that has the headlight cap

Those are different headlights though, not the projector ones.

i dont think they are too bad.

but what it boils down to, will the projectors themselves put out good light??

i remember when projector housings first came out for the grand prix. they were great. then another company started making some that looked even better. well one guy bought them to be the guinea pig. turns out the projector output was worse then stock. which is saying a lot for a grand prix. the stock output on those cars is simply awful

Haha, Thats what I wonder everytime I see that crap.

I seen a listing with headlights for like.. 02+ I think, and they had it chopped onto a 3rd gen truck.

I think they need a mix of this set and that other set that came out a while ago.

The corners of these to me look better, But I dont like the look of the projectors, however these remind me more of the Brazillian ones.

I like projectors... that's why I got my bike. But these headlights would have to be installed on a truck for me to decide whether or not I like 'em.

Ew. I don't like those at all, they look to non-oem to me. I maybe would of picked some up if they didn't have so much going on inside the light housing its self it you know what I mean.

That's REDICULOUS!


I was going to buy a Miller hood from a place that's located on my way to work and have a retail store. They were offering free shipping on their items. And they wouldn't let me pick up, they only do it by shipping. Which is complete BS....and stupid for their bottom line imo.

Your deal is crazy....because it certainly doesn't cost them to ship a box that size $48...I HATE HATE HATE people who make money off shipping. Look at HID kits....$20 for the kit and $50 to ship. WTF?

EXACTLY! I mean, i understand why they do it. Its BS.

I buy the lights, lets say they fit like **** or i dont like them on the truck, or they are of crap quality in person (they wont even let me go there to check them out beforehand... i suspect they drop ship everything). If i want to return them all that will be refunded is the $180. Shipping is generally non refundable.

So id pay $230 for the lights, if i return im SOL out of $50. (more once you factor return shipping)

Bastards. I might suck it up and buy anyway, but im gonna wait till others start posting there. (competition drives prices down after all) If not, ill try to work something out with some people i know that can get aftermarket parts. My GFs brother has one of those Chinese aftermarket parts places as a side business (sell cheap tires, Altezzas and stuff....) and ill see if he will hook me up.

Then again... i dont think he likes me much lol. who knows.
