    I found this on cardomain but can't get a hold of the owner and haven't been able to find these online, they're stock headlights but clear and this is exactly what I want, anyone know where to get these?

    All they did was open up the headlight and take out the reflectors and put a clear blinker in. Kind of like the BHLM except don't paint the bezel

    Open your stock lights up and remove the yellow pieces, then put back together and reinstall.

    wat?
    if you look closely, those light still have the reflectors and all still in them, just clear ones.

    OP, they sell them on ebay. if you get them, make sure to add a bead of silicone all the way around where they meet b/c of fogging issues.

    You can also buy those on eBay. I am guessing that is what those are... Since you can still see the textured part in front of the DRL.

    EDIT: Jamie beat me to it.

    You're welcome. We installed them on someone's truck last year. Looks pretty good. The fitment was good but the back plastic does feel a bit more flimsy than stock. I do not believe he has had any issues with this though.

    Those remind me of the late 90's truck mods.

    Nice looking 1st gen! I had the clear corners on an 94 S-10, 2000 Silverado and a 2003 Ranger. It's not a bad mod, it just was really popular around the late 90's/early 2000's.

    I've been putting it off buying those! Those "were" the first thing I wanted to buy when I got my truck. I bought the clear rears first and put the headlights off. I gotta get em!!!! I put clear led bulbs in my tails and have a pair for the fronts if i ever buy em!

    eric, I noticed you shaved your badges on your tailgate, I did that to my 1st gen but it was after 6 or so years of the truck being driven and in the right light at the right angle you could still see the letters because the light washed out the paint around the letters so where the letters were, the paint was brighter, when did you take your badges off? and can you see the letters now? mine is an 08 also and so I've been driving it 3 years, I wonder if the paint will be washed out enough yet to still see where the badges were...?

    I bought my truck new in 08, took the badges off within 2 months of having it so you cant tell at all. Took my dads off his dodge after about 3yrs and you cant tell, you can always put it back on if its noticable, I dont think it will be tho.
