Aftermarket Headlights - particularly HIDs / projectors on an OBS. Preferences?

Hey guys, kinda new to this forum. I still need to post an introduction thread but that can wait. Just want to say that I've been a lurker on here for a while and truly enjoy learning from all your guys' conversations.

Anyways! I am looking to buy some new headlights with my tax return. The stock headlights aren't all that great on my 1997 F250 extended cab, 7.3L. My stock ranger headlights were much better oddly enough.

In particular, I am looking into projectors and HIDs. I like the look of the black headlights (not tinted, I think those are pointless). I found these Anzo's on autoanything and really like them. Anyone have experience with these or other aftermarket headlights for our OBS trucks?

Found here:
Anzo Headlights, Anzo USA Head Lights - 100+ Reviews
and here:
4300K Slim HID Ford 92 96 Bronco F150 F250 F350 Halo Projector Black Headlights | eBay

And one last afterthought, how come all the aftermarket websites come up with little to no results when I say that I have a 1997 F250 but when you input 1996 or earlier F250 or F150 or Bronco, there are loads of results? I am pretty sure they are identical, and if they aren't, close enough to make it work cleanly still. Correct?

Thanks in advance guys!

In 1997 they had a light duty f250 which is same shape as the 97-04 f150, but 92-96 f series and bronco all actually were the same with zero variation

I like the hid projector kit Cary at ct performance sells honestly, the ones you've posted look a bit busy to me

Hids require projection units designed for them, no one makes a projection housing except for use with std bulbs. If you want them correct we can build them for you.
PM me if I can help.
