Which headlights?

Opinions on which headlights would look good on a 1998 green Ranger. I was thinkin one of the halo ones...

Unless you are blacking out the rest of your truck, go with the crystal clears. Make sure you get the clear marker lights too.

Honestly it is your truck, but if it was mine, I would get the clear corners first, and then the headlights

Crystal clears and clear corners all the way. I also do not recommend projectors unless you go HID. I spent $400 on projector lenses from Germany for my Cadillac Catera and I didn't use HIDs and they were worse than my stock headlights.


BTW a little thread jack, but those 98-00 Ranger headlights look VERY similar to my 02 Mazda headlights...I wonder if they'd fit?

I like the black ones, but you'd need the corners too.

I pm'd Marcaronio who did the swap on his truck and he said they are different.

I was rather disappointed to hear that.
