Another HID question

Hey guys..i tried searching but nothing turned up.

Here's my dilema. I need better lighting on my 04 F250. Mounting some off road driving lights is out of the question due to the fact my snow plow harness will not fit with anything extra attached to the front bumper.

I was looking at some HID hi/low conversion kits...Although it would more than be able to get the job done i'm afraid that the light scatter would be too much with the trucks reflective style headlights. Then i came across something like these

99-04 Ford Super Duty LED Halo Projector Headlights Chrome

my issue with these is i think they look horrid and a little too "rice" if you catch my drift.

My question is... does anybody know of a manufacturer that makes a Xenon Projector headlight assembly for the 99-07 Superduty's that don't look like they belong in "The Fast & the Furious 26"

actually HID's tend to do better in non-projector housings. I would say 99% of the ones that we do in aftermarket projectors look like crap, brighter that stock yes, but not as good as even stock headlight housings. The aftermarket projectors, are usually more form, than function, so you are right on with the rice flavor.

I think I saw somew projectors housings on ebay, that did not have those retarded halo things on them, you may check there. My advise would to be to go with a clear headlight housing and a set of HID's, that shppuld light it up just fine.
