    Thanks for the input. I'll probably hold off then, maybe I'll get the balls to do BHLM on my own lights one of these weekends.

    I've had them for a couple years.
    You need to clear silicone the entire light where it attaches to the lens. Very easy.
    They are prone to fog , but mine never have after the above ....

    Light output is not as good as stock, but still good enough. I have lots of extra lights.
    My lenses have never faded. I live in the hottest place on earth.

    Check out the build
    I have a set of Depos right now and so far so good. I get about 3 sets before I pay the price of OEM ones.

    These aren't the best pics, was installing my Pelfreybilt front :)
    I've done the bhlm on a set of oem and they are near that look for sure.

    Like @Iggy said you may go through 2 pairs in the life of the truck, but still cheaper then OEM.

    I know lots of guys retro fit these lights, and have good success.

    I did a quick search on ebay and didn't see any Depo JDM for 12-15, plenty of other choices though

    I literally installed a pair of these yesterday. I too had seen cautions from people saying they would leak if not sealed. Not an issue. $5 for a tube of clear silicone and I went to town on EVERY seam even if it looked fine. I let it cure and then installed them. They look great so far. Only time will tell with regards to leaking or fogging.

    One suggestion I have is to simply eliminate the bottom bracket that attaches via a screw to the inside of the fender behind the fender liner. It makes it a ROYAL BITCH to get the headlight in and out. I eliminated the bottom part (closest to the tire) and rocked it that way for the last 5 years. Three mounting points are really all you need (top two and the bottom one by the grill). Really makes it a ton easier in my opinion.

    Love them! I suggest putting a silicon bead around the edges though. My first set leaked on me around 1 week in. (Pic below of the first set)

    I love mine. Something weird about the lenses though, can't aim them 100% straight but it's not really a problem. Close enough
