    So doing some research here about headlights..
    Seems the more I read about aftermarket headlights more and more people complaining about leaks and the way light is projected etc.

    I was first interested in blacking the lights out and reto fitting, But now Im looking for just a different look.

    Can anyone suggest any good projector headlight out there that has a decent track record??

    None, they're all garbage.

    If you want a projector, do a retrofit.

    Mine have worked perfectly since day one. The only complaint is the plastic lens cover is starting to show signs that the sun is beating on it. But even the stock taco lenses are doing that. So I can't say that I plame them for putting in stock quality materials.

    I just got my Projector Headlights and I love them, the lighting is way better in them than the factory. I can't tell you about leaks as I havent had mine but maybe for little over a week or maybe a week but as long as you seal them than you should be fine. ;)
