    Is there anyone who can get an OEM 2009 colored headlight??

    I have been through countless calls and internet queries... It has been implied that I am smoking something I shouldn't when I try to explain that 09 had different color headlights than 05-08.
    "I realize that your fit guide, reference, tea leaves, whatever you are using for customer queries states the headlights didn't change... can we pretend for a minute that it might be wrong??"
    I found one ebay dude with "grey 09" lights but they are darker than OEM and different parts were colored compared to stock - sorry buddy but these are not "OEM" as you had advertised!!

    Thanks for listening, I needed a therapy session. I still need a passenger side headlight.. I have not sunk to the level of going to the dealer and paying their price, but I am close.

    Peace out.

    Make sure you specify that you want headlights for a Sport or Offroad Model. The Sr5/base lights didn't change.

    Yeah, I tried that... imagine trying to explain that the color of the headlight changes from model to model... does not compute.
