    I have 'em. They're not as good as OEM but they're not bad by any means.

    Since you're doing a projector retrofit they'll work well. As delivered they don't hold the bulb in place as well as I'd want them to.

    The reflectors are clear. And they will be fine during the day. Night out put is not so bright. If you get them make sure to seal them up good.

    What's wrong with your stockers, why not paint them black?

    I'm having someone do a custom retro for me, so I need to ship a set of headlights to them ,so I can continue to drive my truck.

    I've had those ebay ones before and they were okay. The light output on the turn signals and side markers arent as bright since the background is black and not chrome reflectors like the stock lights. I have retros on my truck right now with the BHLM and chrome reflectors and I like it a lot better then the all the black ones.

    Any big difference between the DEPO brand and the TYC brand? TYC brand looks like a smoked lens, so I may not want those.

    EDIT. Went with the depo brand. they come from amazon, so I will have them by friday.

    I have the 70 dollar ones that come black that someone posted a link to a while ago. they arent bad, havent had any issues with moisture getting in but they probably suck stock for the scatter pattern if you go traditional bulb. The only beef i have with them are the signals are blacked out and reduce the output/brightness over stock. Buy one to retro fit in my opinion. Stock is better obviously but for the price, its good.
