I love those! I almost bought them, but would rather use the money for other things.

I would have loved to buy them. They will be 100000000x better than any stock housing. Now start posting output pics ans send me your black headlights.

I think it would look better without the black... but its badass nonetheless and youre right about function being more important than looks!

I think like a silver trim ring on it would look amazing. Right now theres just too much black IMO. But DAMN that light pattern is perfect.

i know. but i dont mind touching it up every once in a while. i just bought a can of the paint. its like 3 bucks a can lol

and look at that light output and tell me what you think again

thats what makes it worth it. stock light output, even with HID's doesnt even compare to this.

Eh you like it. I'd rather put more lights up front than run those housings. No offense but they do not one thing for me.

I too feel as if they needed more but during the while process it got to that point and function overruled looks. I have seen people use the bottom of stainless steel travel mugs, stainless bowl bottoms, etc. There are also other who purchase OEM bezels from other cars and make them work. My hat's off to you Tys when you crack them back open and "sex them up a bit" and make it look more fitting with the whole scheme of the truck. Shouldn't be too difficult.

I know I sound like a broken record here, but I have 3 sets of brand new projectors with brand new hid bulbs and brand new ballasts if anyone else wants to do this mod.
