    I do...If you get em make sure you use some clear silicone to seal the 3 little LED bulbs. They just push in and they vibrate out and break!! Thats what happened to me when I was out muddin...then there was a clear shot right in behind my lense so guess where the mud went...I wouldn't recomend em personally...there quality sucks :( I'm installing these next week

    i'll keep that in mind... but the led ones i showed above, when you got them, were they just plug and play?? Or did you have to re-wire and stuff??

    The wiring is intense IMO Iwas gonna install em myself but had to have professionally done which set me back 50 bucks :( The halos, eyebrows and LEDs all have seperate wiring...it looked like a damn spider web :eek:

    I have the same ones, and was fortunate my bro-in-law is good with that stuff. Had to wire them into the parking lights, and the wires were backwards. Basically white to black or ground and the black to the stock yellow IIRC. Haven't had any problems with them yet, however I haven't been out mudding either.

    You should throw some sealant around them little LEDs so they don't fall out. Like I said, mine fell out and mud got inside my lense :eek: My fiance got me new headlights for christmas and I added the link to em up above :) Good luck with your decision bud

    I have those Exact lights and installed them yesterday... They're decent, I went with 35wt. 4300K HID bulbs, ok, I wish they were brighter. I also have 8000K bulbs that I haven't tried yet... The front LED's are pretty cool/bright, the "eye lid light" isn't bright at all, I'm going to replace it with an LED.

    I bought a used set and the seal boots are chewed up, easy fix.

    Where are you looking at them from? I've seen some Cheapo's on ebay...

    Good luck and let me know if you have any general q's.

    I do have one set before, and i get it from ebay. It dose come with HID install already, I put it on, the lighting pattern is look like shit... when you use HID on it.
    Than I return it back to the seller.
    I will say do not buy it. Don't waste your time.

    For a direct replacement, i would spend the $40 you were going to have to spend on installation on shipping, but that's just me. I also like the look of the second set better IMO :)

    keep your stock ones, do BHLM and get HID's and itll be 1000x better

    i have the lights from the original post. so far im not happy with them. i dont have the HID kit though. i think they are dimmer then the stock lights. does anyone know what the bulbs are in there because i thought about changing them for something brighter and hoping that will work
