I think you should take your headlight and corner out of your truck, look at how the corner specifically mounts, then look at the one piece you posted. There doesn't appear to be any adjustment in height or left/right.

The pin toward the outer part of the 1 piece goes into the mounting hole for the corner light that has no adjustment. How are you going to adjust it if that hole doesn't move?

That was my first thought.





I've never seen those 1pieces on ebay before. I like the halos...but that's just about it.

Taillights arent bad.
Headlights are eh, but its nice to see someone has made aftermarket one piece headlights. If they make them like the brazillian ones then they'll be good.

I personally think those heads look kinda cool. I too think they would look better in black but if they are on the way I will reserve judgment until I see 'em. I do think however that the ad is a bit misleading, it states the rings are CCFL but they are pretty clearly LED rings due to the little cuts in em to distribute the light. It also says that the turn signals are LED but they are clearly just amber bulbs (not a difficult thing to fix but would cost additional $$ to add a proper amber LED which would look cool since LEDs are clear when not energized). If the halos were truly CCFL they would look very cool when lit as CCFL are usually daylight visable.

The corner markers are the leds, the housings take 9007 bulbs, and yes, the stock amber turn signal bulb.
