Whose removed the amber reflector from the headlamps

Looking for anyone that has removed the amber from the stock headlamps on a 2011+. I know the H&S shop truck did and it looks awesome. Just curious if anyone else has and if so did you fab a clear reflector or leave it open or what.

Not sure that I want to pony up and go to full projector housings and custom headlights just hate the amber and want it gone and also replacing the turn signals with the chromed amber bulbs so none of it is visible with the lights off.

Yeah I know it's common on lots of cars but am mainly looking for people who have done it to post pics of what it looks like without the amber with nothing or without the amber and then with whatever they replaced it with on a 2011+

It's a federal law that you have to have reflectors that are amber on the front side and red on the rear side of all vehicles. Not to mention the reflectors in the rear and headlight taillight positions. These car manufacturers don't put these lights and reflectors on our trucks just for fun it's a law. Just remember if you're driving at night and you pull out and a car hits you on the side and you don't have reflectors well they got a case against you. Just saying.

I factory matched the housing to my paint code and it was a huge pita.... It looks ok but I also used nightshades on the amber reflector part and cleared afterwards and the clear looks cracked and looks like crap. The good news is that I resealed the entire light with silicone so taking back apart to fix it shouldn't be too bad. I never took any pics of the process but there are several dyi instructions on here and you can shoot me a PM id you have any questions. I think that i am just going to go with some recon knockoffs for around $300.

I have amber lights in where the amber plastic was with a clear light before. Either way they shine amber, can't see any harm in that.

Yeah I'm aware of the fact that they are supposed to have amber and red reflectors. At night though all of the clear or euro style aftermarket mirror lenses/tail lights light up their appropriate color with the LED's lit so it would still show amber or red regardless of the reflector being there or not. I personally despise the amber/red exterior color of any kind and just want it gone
