Help finding clear (no amber) headlights.

I've seen them before and I can't find them anywhere. Anybody know where I can find them?

i just looked and all the headlights i see have amber in them. i believe its mandatory for DOT purposes so the only way to do it is to bake them apart and tape them

No they are not the same. You can get cheap ones on eBay which I bought but don't like them. They seem super cheap but they are 100% clear. Just search 08 f250 clear headlights or something like that with the word clear. Idk if I will ever install them.

Thanks, WydOpen. You too, white is definitely the way to go.

Does DOT say they need the orange reflector inside or an orange blinker? Because if you look for every other model of F250, they're all over the place.

jnp1267- is there a DIY anywhere on here you can forward to me? I haven't looked yet but I will now. What exactly was it that you did to yours once you opened them up?

Ultimately what I'm trying to do is clear the headlights out, throw some bright *** bulbs in there and then throw a light bar inside the bumper and one on the cab. But I gotta make sure I can get everything matching so it looks right.

i am not sure if there is a DIY or not, i have done this on a lot of different vehicles i have owned over the years. Put the headlight in the over for 8 min with it on 350 degrees get a butter knife and begin to separate the housing from the lens. You will have to repeat this a few times due to the silicone heating and cooling around the housing. If you want to give me a text and I will send you a pic of my headlights. 8438707226

Good deal, jnp. Will do. I think it's a little late on the east coast so I can wait until tomorrow.

Is there anything behind the amber? Or just chrome like the rest of the headlight?
