Clear Headlights+corners or black headlights+corners

The orange corners on the headlights are extremely ugly and i'm tired of looking at them. I'm not sure if the black headlights with the black corners would look better on my truck or clear headlights with clear corners. Just wanna see what anyone else thinks

Here is the link to all the pictures of my truck. Ford Ranger Forum - The Ultimate Ford Ranger Resource - The SuperDookie Ranger's Album: 2004 Lv II

let me know what ya think

I have a guy that can get some, that was the first things I thought about, but there is no way in hell im paying that much for headlights. But I guess since you guys think black will look better i'll go that direction.

I think clear heads & corners would tie into the chrome a lot better than black. Black headlights on it against the chrome trim and grey plastic would stand out like a sore thumb, in an obnoxious/bad way. Just my $0.02!

Yea, that's the other thing I was thinking about. The black would probably still look good. But with all the chrome I have on the truck it would probably make it look a little stupid?

Personally I like the 06+ but also I like the black... But with the chrome you have up front I would go with chrome.

Or You could paint the billet insert black. Leave the surround chrome and go with the black headlights and corners.
