    I didn't have the time to do the BHLM myself, so I shelled out a few bucks and bought one off eBay. Thought I'd share how they look with you guys. (Plus a few extra shots of my truck :p)

    Also, here's the link to the item, if anyone else is interested...

    for the regular shots, I'm shooting a Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L lens. For the one fisheye shot, it's a Canon 15mm f/2.8.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    Those look so nice man. How easy was the install? And is your light output the same?

    ah yeah, that's one thing i forgot to mention in the OP. they fog every now and then. i've been meaning to take em off to add some silicone on em.

    thanks man, yeah i like em too. the light output is a little different on these, i can tell there are some "hot spots," whereas the stock headlights come off with a smooth light all across. but in terms of brightness, not too much off a difference. but then again, i didn't take note of how bright the stocks one were, either.

    install wasn't bad either. it took me about 45 mins because i couldn't reach the damn 4th bolt everyone talks about...now i know why!! haha. it was a little bit of a pain getting the lights back in too...for some reason they didn't just get right into place. it was really frustrating at 6am before work! haha

    Ya thats what i did were the lens meets the housing is the part that they suck at sealing! make sure you get the silcone from home depot that is the best stuff to use construction strength i used the stuff we install marble tops with will last forever and will not let any water in! Run a beed around the hole light then run your finger over it that way it goes in the open spots i would do it 2 times thats what i did them let them dry for a few hours you will be good to go!:D

    I bought similar ones off eBay. Light output the same because you use your stock bulb/harness. Install took about an hour. I used a small wrench set to get to the infamous 4th bolt from under the truck.
