Keep it Stock.

Looks better

I think the blackouts for the taillights looks better about not the headlights.

They are dumb and unless you don't want to see at night or get a ticket for them, I would not even get them.

I had them on my S-10 and they weren't worth it.

I have them on my truck front and rear. I think they look good, yah there illegal but often times whats cool isnt legal.




Its true the you cant see anything at night. I have bright foglamps and the streets around where i live are well lit so it doesn't really matter. Also at night you can't even tell the lights are covered because they do shine through still. They are incredibly easy take on and off using velcro. If i ever do need some light ive got 7 daylighters that work much then the headlights anyway.

When I bought my truck, the guy before me already had the headlight covers on. This is what mine look like on my 98 ranger. I didn't know they were illegal, I got pulled over once because I forgot to turn my headlights on(just had the parking lights on) and they never said a thing about the headlight covers. I like how the rear ones look better than the front ones, but anyways here are mine:

i think they look on an all black truck....... but other than that id pass. tho, what i think would work alot better than those covers, yet still remain legal would be prohibitively expensive. and that is to coat the actualy head light lense with the same thing as whats on prescription glasses that make them go dark in sun light. i think THAT would be pimpin

Now thats an idea! It would be tough tho, because how could you make it so when you turn the headlights on it wouldnt go dark!....But that is a smokin idea, that would be absolutly sick
