    What is everyone's recommendation for a set of replacement headlights? I found a crack in the bezel on my driver side headlight today, looks like a stone hit. The crack is about 4 inches long and is through-and-through, so next rain or wash job and I'll probably get water inside.

    How are the ones advertised and sold on Amazon, compared to OEM? The ones I've looked at get 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 stars, but there are common comments in the reviews about poor sealing and poor light pattern, IMO the most important things. Prices vary from around $85 to $120 for what look pretty much the same. Not interested in projector lights, or converting to LED. I like the looks of the blacked out housings (my truck is black), but the standard ones would be okay; I'd rather get good quality without having to pay OEM replacement prices.

    This is what I've looked at:https://www.amazon.com/Depo-312-118...automotive&vehicleId=3&vehicleType=automotive

    I've had my anzo brand for a few years now and the just started leaking over this past winter. My biggest complaint with them is they began pedaling a few weeks after I installed them. I wouldn't recommend them to anybody. I've heard the same things about depo as well

    I have depo, don’t like them. Weird light pattern to them. Going back to OEM.
