Yet another "help me choose aftermarket headlights" thread

Looking at 3 different options currently:

1992-1996 FORD BRONCO F150 LED HEADLIGHTS+CORNER BUMPER | eBay

92-96 F150 F250 F350 TRUCK LED HEAD LIGHTS+BUMPER LAMPS | eBay

92-96 BRONCO/F150/F250/F350 HALO PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS | eBay

Currently leaning toward option #2. I think they would look pretty slick on my truck, but I can't decide if the full clear (option 1) would look better or not.
I like that option 3 is all one piece and the projectors are neat, but buying 2 sets of HID's for the separate high/low bulbs would drive the cost waaaay up. Would HID's even be needed in the projectors? Plus I'd have to find some mylar or some other way to make the outer trim chrome... black wouldn't look good on my truck.
Thoughts, suggestions...

i think the 3rd ones would look really good on a black truck, but i've just heard some bad things about ebay projectors. some of them are just bad products.

but i think #2 would look awesome on your truck!
