Suggestions for temporary headlights

Hey everyone new tacoma owner and new to tacomaworld.com

So here is a bit of a summary. I have stock headlights currently installed but they are pretty bad (unfortunately inside and out) even with headlight restoration its not to great. I want to get new headlights all together. I have done a bit of research and what I really want are full retro fitted headlights. Unfortunately i don't have the money to drop on them at the moment. And don't trust myself enough to do it. I was looking for something cheaper as a temp replacement. I was looking spyder headlights and just resealing them with silicon(I've heard the seals are a problem) and using those for about 1-2 years or so. Any other suggestions would be great? Different brands? Different alternatives. Anything welcome.

Best you can do for a cheap fix is get an ebay set and reseal like you said. You can restore the oem ones with some sandpaper and uv clear with a buff job. I do it a lot on cars. They look like new again. If you wanted to take a ride up to yucca valley i could help ya out. about 2 hrs from you. we could do it in a day.
