    I see a lot of new vehicles that have a row of small white led lights along the bottom and sometimes the sides of the headlights interior. Anybody know of an aftermarket vendor for these for our second gens. My crappy oem lights are starting to get hazy, very poor materials. My 2001 Dodge diesel has the original headlights and they are still nice and clear.

    Just found these, anybody have them and if so how do you like them:

    I have the Spyder and they are not crap it is sealed well, nice cutoff line with HID or Led's much brighter than stock. I had cheap Chinese crap before but the Spyder ones are of good quality.

    Well, I wash my car with a pressure washer and sometimes go through car wash and the Spyder never leaked. Before my crappy cheap no name Chinese ones leaked and fogged up bad.

    I have spyderauto halos and the have never leaked. I had bulb issues with them but once I put hella bulbs in they were fine. They just use cheap bulbs. That the only issue. They look really good for the money. A retrofit in the factory housing would be preferred but that's $$$
