    So I gotta have the black headlights, but I am not very handy. I know that I could do the BHLM in theory, but a few things are holding me back. The actually "blacking" of the headlights are not what scares me, its the taking them out and putting them back in that I worry about. Plus, spare time is not something that I have very much of. Sounds like the BHLM takes the better part of two days.

    So, I have been thinking about those Revotec JDM ones on Ebay. I found an old thread about them, but I wondered if anyone had any new info to share about the pros and cons of installing these. I could have some pros put them in for me for prolly 20-30 bucks, but what details should I tell them to make sure and do? Also, are these gonna pass inspection? Thanks.

    I think they pretty much are, but I read in the old thread someone saying that pluggin up holes to keep moisture out is advisable. Just wondering if someone could elaborate.

    Ive had those now for about 1 1/2 yrs. NO problems whatsoever. Right from the box and onto my truck. The only thing I had to do was align the beam pattern. Took me about 20 minutes to do.
