Well I just ordered a new set of headlights as my stock one's were beginning to bug the hell out of me.

They look pretty nice. But it is really hard to tell how they will look until you get them on. I wish they had some pictures of them installed to look at. I got an 05 durango, and I have to say I really like them.

Yeah i figured the chrome/black will accent my front end well. the truck is all black but has a chrome grill and front bumper and rear bumper. I'll post pics prolly next weekend as that's when I'll get em'.

$5 says that water gets in them and makes them foggy.

then anyone with aftermarket lights like these (there are a ton on ebay) would have the same problem. 1 other thing, dude I live in Central Tx, annual rain fall is 32" i'm not worried lol.

They look nice... but you never know till you get them on. I agree that they may get fogged up.

i am not a huge fan of aftermarket lights, but some of them look good. its one of those hit and miss things on certain vehicles. throw some pics up when you get them on.

I bought a set off EBay (Depo brand) had them on my truck for a while, not one problem with any water or any fogging, this includes the two corner lenses too.... you should be happy with em

Got the headlights today but didn't get a chance to hook em' up:(. i'm sure glad they came with all new set screws as the one's in my dakota are 8 yrs old.

I got ones similar to those for my escort (black fill and chrome) very happy with them, put some xenon bulbs in them. Headlights really help with setting off a front end.

I put HID's in mine :) HUGE difference!

xenon's are for imports or poser's;). HID kit has already been ordered and the headlights will go in possibly tomorrow. again quite happy they came with replacement set screw's as the one's i had i just found out 2 hours ago 3 of the 4 are stripped.

Sounds like the company hooked you up... what Kelvin temp HID's did you end up ordering?

on the company hooking me up, i paid for the full assembly so i could literally hack mine out right now and replace it all which is pretty much what i intend to do as tight spot+ stripped torque bits= the suxor. my buddy's shop hooked me up on the HID's so that's good lol. I am paying them off by 07':D. not sure the kelvin temp i'll get pics when i get em', it'll just be a few weeks.

well, I'm happy with my xenon's, look much better and put out much more then my stock bulbs did, I can actually see while driving at night. ;)

yeah i totally understand, HID's are a BIG step up in $. i mean 350 at the lowest vs. the 20 for the xenon's lol.

Yeah do it all once haha, I peiced mine together and it was a MAJOR pain in the a$$.... I've had the 8000K (Blueish) for like a year now, if yours are similar you'll love them, I paid 300 for mine and I don't regret a penny of it
