    What if in the few hours you spent on your lights, old buddy made $500 doing whatever he does. Then after purchasing the lights, he is still $300 up on the DIY mod. Food for thought.

    5100's all around - fronts at 1.75", 265/70/17 Bridgestone Revo 2, HID headlights and fog lights, factory skid plate, ss exhaust tip, tube steps, Access roll-up tonneau cover, Redline hood struts, 6 D-rings, seat MagLite, LED dome, fumoto oil drain, DTRL, fog light anytime, Kenwood/Clarion speakers, Pop-N-Lock 5300, LED bed lights and a few other things...
    To some, the $300 is cheap insurance that they don't mess up the job and cause more damage.
    Some people have shops install their 5100's and pay $300+...others do it in 30 minutes.

    To each their own.


    To the OP, can't you sell your original headlights to recoup some of the expense? I thought you could get about $100 for them...maybe more.

    but if done by himself, he has the satisfaction of doing work on his own truck (thats what most of us are all about right, modding our trucks..).

    if bought, he has the satisfaction that he just paid china for his headlights...
