    I like it. You can't go wrong with either eyelids. Dude, Satsoshi grill would even make your nice truck look even better!

    My friend here at work the other night has those headlights and we were discussing the 'eyebrow lights' that are already on it. They're gay IMO, but, you can easily disconnect them. We need to make eyelids for those lights that cover up the brow and those 3 LED's that come on some of them. They'd be just like the angry eyelids but a little 'deeper'. I think if you were to do something as such, those headlights would look GREAT. Hell it would almost be easy enough to just 3M tape them and paint over it with your white.

    edit: you may not actually have the brows on yours, I can't tell with the glare, but the idea remains the same.

    Thanks guys. Yeah, the only reason I'm considering the "angry" eyelids is because of the 3 LEDs and the light bar. Given its been disconnected and already painted over, the contours are still visible revealing that they really are "ebay" lights. I hate it. I like the style of dual halos, but the fact that it isn't simple kills it.

    "Good from far, far from good."

    Keep the opinions coming on what to do guys. Really appreciate it! :thumbsup:

    I think your truck with no eyelids at all would look the best. Eyelids look "cute" on regular tacos or dropped tacos but not a jacked up one. Just my opinion.

    I got it from the same guy that does the "angry" eyelids. He used to make them before, but I haven't seen them for quite a while. Maybe you could shoot him an email?

    I would go back to the black stock headlights and add a Satoshi grill. Other than that, your truck is sick.
