I like it. Those would come in handy for off-roading. My only suggestion, non HID related, center up the license plate.

dont get projector fog lights.. just use HIDS in your fogs.. run 3000k in your fogs and those projector things are crap.

I was thinking the projector fogs + HID would benefit well together. But I guess the projector fogs are not really meant for HID's. Just trying to get a review on them from someone who has owned them for a period of time. Is it + or -, was it worth the money?....anyways nice truck.

Improperly aimed lights of any kind will cause annoying glare. If you aim the right, it won't be a problem.

and like shane said with me being low, its no problem with glare, actually i need to aim them up, my passengers side is way low, and the top adjusters are way up, so i guess its time when i get my replacement plugs to spin the bottom adjusters out
