    I had an extra set of OEM headlights just as back ups. Started researching headlights on e bay. All I could find were aftermarket black and clear. It really made me start thinking about some matched lamps. I just repainted the entire truck inside and out, so I figured why not. What do you guys think?

    I think it looks great! I did mine to match my superwhite and rocketball has his speedway blue.

    I think you need a color matched grille though now :stirthepot:

    I really like that. Very nice job!

    x2 on the color matched grill. Would make a crazy seamless look on the front of the truck.

    ^^^Disagree; Headlights look great! Color matched grill would finish it nicely.

    Not feeling it... but would look better with a color matched grill. Did you tint the outside or pull the clear lens and shoot the inside of the headlight?
