Too Much Black(as far as headlights go)

I think I might of got the wrong Headlights I think it may be too much black for the trucks paint? Opinion's?I'm not going for a sporty look going for more of an off road style as well.

Hmmm...the corners look fine, but are the outsides of the headlights shaded?

Its haerd to tell from the pictures, but it looks like the inside has been blacked out completely.

It also looks like the outside has been shaded as well. Get some pics with light output plz.

I kind of think so too. I actually really like it with the lights on but I'm more concerned how it looks in the day rather then the night.I'd take pics but im too lazy to go back outside again. Parking sucks here and my truck isn't right outside.

I bought them off ebay like this. It's not black but there smoked out headlights.

don't get me wrong it looks nice but i think because the whole grill doesn't have any color to it or chrome it looks a little bland, maybe do up a custom emblem to match the truck like i did here.

Damn, those are darker than I thought they were. I was planning on buying them for my truck eventually, but that's too dark for me. They look cool, just darker than I'd want

I would say the black gill makes it look to dark. The heads and corners look sexy!

Too dark for me. Light output for me is important though.

If you paint the lower part of the grill surround toredor red, like you're truck, it would look much better. Just an idea...
