    I just installed 2011 smoked OEM headlights and now I have a set of 2008 chrome headlights in excellent condition for sale.

    $75.00 plus shipping

    Yes, the picture is dark and using an iPhone 3GS so the quality of the pics is pretty poor. I will take more in the morning when its better lighting :S.

    Lights are already packed and boxed. The estimates I have seen for shipping is roughly ten dollars or so because of the size of the boxes.

    Update:

    I Liquid I is first in line and RAD is currently second pending visual inspection.

    I cruise Craigslist in S. Florida and a new owner of a 2011 decided to sell his set to upgrade. Why I do not know but they are installed as of tonight and I will post pics tomorrow.

    Here is a pic of the 2011 smoked headlights on a 2008 4x4 DC. Just need a white grill and black step bars.

    The 2008 OEM headlights are still for sale. I have been looking into shipping for members that have PM'ed me.

    It's being sold to me after we confirm on condition. No yellowing, Discolor, uv peeling, or scratches on the clear outside plastic of the headlightas. I want to make sure. Please box them very well as shipping carriers like to throw things. These are fragile.:cool:

    Waiting for confirmation and deal is done!:D

    Yeah their is a tiny nick on the plastic lens from a rock (or bug). It is about the size of two pen heads. I did notice an area when the headlights are lifted at a specific angle that appears to be slight oxidation. Once again this was after a thorough cleaning and placing the headlights in different angles. I was not able to tell by looking head on at the lights.

    Ranking wise i would place them at a 9.237419 out of 10 for headlights off of 08 with 50,000 miles on them. :p

    RAD wanted prestine headlights and upon further inspection they were not a 10 out of 10 and thus we decided not to complete the sale.

    The pic of the slight oxidation would not come out from the photo I took with the iPhone due to the angle of the photo. Overall you would not notice both of these unless you were looking specifically for them. I rather disclose all information because karma is a biznitch.

    Below is a photo of the nick. The picture is zoomed in and you might notice it in the photo. It is the speck that you see in the reflection of the window towards the center of the photo.
