Headlights

Hey guys well ive gone through two different pairs of lights on my pickup first ones were smoked and couldnt see crap now the ones i got the sides of the light are black and i think that is causing it to have a v like lighting effect not allowing the light to fan out. i was thinkin about getting the completely clear set from ebay but their is a billion different combos, idk if the little cap over the light bulb in the light makes a diffrence or not. just seeing what some opinions were. thanks blair

My lights don't have the same pattern as the stock ones did. Mine is weird, but tolerable, plus mine are probably not adjusted right. My friend has the same headlights and his are the same way. Is it possible yours aren't adjusted right? What cap are you talking about over the light? And what bulbs are you running? My friend and I both are running Sylvania Silverstar Ultras and they are very bright.

im running phillips crystal vision lights. in some lights there is just a hole where then light goes in but the ones that i have there is a little bulb shield inside the headlight itself thats covers a portion of the light bulb just wondering if this shield would cause a difference.

Mine don't have a shield. I will try and get a good camera and see if I can take a pic of mine at night. I am pretty happy with mine, I just need to adjust them a little more.

We have 2 options..a USA made harness and Hella 80/100w 4k Kelvin bulbs..best lighting you can get with stock or aftermarket clear housings and 9007 bulbs.

Other option true Projection Hids..best lighting period.
New True projection hid kits.
