spyder headlights

Hey guys,

does anyone have any experience with Spyder headlights? I have an 03 flareside extended cab ranger, and have been looking for some aftermarket headlights. I think they look good, but I just want to make sure they don't melt, or rattle to much, etc.

Thanks for the help!

P.S. If you don't have Spyders but have some other aftermarket headlights that look good and have been reliable, please let me know! (maybe with some pictures?)

In my experience, aftermarket projectors don't work that great as-is. They work better if you put HIDs in them, but ultimately they work the best if you retrofit them.

I was just looking at the same lights, thinking of getting them and getting a retrofit to upgraded HID projectors BUT... $$$ appears to be a lot !

By the time you are done you've spent, 200.00 for the housings, 400 for LED Projectors or 300 for HIDs and then either you do it and hope or you get it done... another 500 to 600... so the total is... 1100 to 1300 $$$, man that a lot for headlights !

Sneller, how is the output? Did you put HID bulbs in them, or stick with the halogen?

Post up pics!

Don’t get the Spyder halo headlights. They suck as is, and even worse when you put HID bulbs in them. The LEDs in them don’t last either.

I would know, I had them. If you want to do it right, bite the bullet and do a projector retrofit. It can be done for a third of what Scambler is saying.

If I were doing this on an 01+ truck, I'd probably still start with the Spyder housings, though. I like the one-piece look of them. They could certainly be done less cluttered, though.
