    sure they will last, silicon is a great idea to make sure there is no fogging. Most concerns are of finger prints on the insides of the lens, iirc. Many ppl run them on here :)

    If you buy your BHLM from the user "Revotec" You will not have any problems with fogging or having to re-seal them. Just an FYI :thumbsup:

    I did the BHLM. It is easy, but a little time consuming.

    Because on my old prerunner i had them from him w/no problems (I had the truck for about 5 years, 4 of which they were on there). Also anyone you talk to with revotecs has had no fogging/water issues. He has gotten a good rep for his BHLM so i figured i'd pass it along!

    ^^^ I second that. I sealed them w/ silicone and got a truckwash...no issues at all. The light distribution is not as good as OEM but I think I'ma pull the trigger on HIDs.

    +1 on the light distribution. It was enough that I went back to a stock HL.

    Have had mine for 1 year sec set i have had first one i did not seal up and foged bad! This set is 100% good! There is no shame in ebay headlights! IMO better then blacking out the head lights that way you can always go back to the stocks if you upgrade whips!
