Aftermarket headlights

Has anyone got these or seen a set of these on a truck. I'm not too crazy about the led signal but overall, I think I like them. Just can't picture what they'd look like on my truck.eBay Motors: 99-04 FORD F250/F350 SUPER DUTY LED 1PC HEADLIGHT 00 01 (item 270114936130 end time May-02-07 18:59:58 PDT)

I thought about the new style lights, but I want something a little different.

If you have myspace then check out "tommy" on my page. He's got an 01 Platinum w/ a trimmed 05 grill and those headlights.

Looks kinda wierd imo.

I found the exact same headlights without the amber reflector and I like them even better except whenever you call the place to order them, they claim they are discontinued because they weren't d.o.t certified since they didn't have a reflector. I thought that's when the "for offroad use only" term applied. I'm still looking though. Makes me mad that they claim on their site to have them in stock and they really don't.

just be careful bying headlighs because 99% of them are not DOT legal. Not saying that matters to most of us, but I did have a customer get a ticket by DPS for it.

When they pull you over for stuff like that, they are obviously bored. If you want to get technical about it, the law states that you must reflect red from the rear of your vehicle. If that's the case, then how does Lexus get away with putting totally clear taillights on their RX 300 suvs? Not to mention that a lot of your european cars have all clear headlights with no reflectors. Doesn't make sense to me.
