White Trucks w/ '05 HD Headlights?

Hey guys... I want to put '05 headlights on my '01. But I can't decide between the chrome ones and Harley ones?! Any opinions? I think the Harley headlights look awesome on black trucks.... I'm just not sure about them on a white truck?!

So I'm mainly looking for pics of white SuperDuty's with '05 headlights... Preferably ones with HD headlights, but post up some chrome ones too!!! It'll help me decide.

Thanks guys!!!!

FYI, 05 up lights suck compaired to the 04..its the blub..The H13 is quite possibly the stupidest design for a bulb ever foisted on the public. The terminals are so small that they overheat, even at stock wattages, and melt the plastic housing of the connectors. Higher than stock wattage bulbs are offered, but not recommended.

Get a set of 04 housings and add a set of Hella 80/100w 4k Kelvin bulbs with a Hella harness.

Hmmmmm....... That's interesting. It's the first time I've heard of this.

I was hoping on eventually going with HID's. Probably not right away, but sometime soon maybe.

Here you go. This is my 02' with the 05' chrome headlights, painted bumper, and chrome billet grille.



And this one is my 99' with the 05' Harley headlights and stock grille and bumper. The look kind of out of place to me. But I don't plan on keeping the truck white, so they'll do for now.

I've since updated it to the 05' grille and bumper as well.

Hids are fantastic except that they require specially designed housings to control light scatter..which no one makes for our trucks.

i dont believe this to be true. I've got HID's and the 05 setup on my 01 and they look great. Light up the night like its daytime!

16. Abstract
The scope of this testing was limited to photometry and color tests to demonstrate the
performance of a headlamp when a Autodynamic "HID-Philips" HB4 HID Conversion Kit is
substituted for the standardized replaceable light source intended for use in the
headlamp. Test failures identified were as follows: lower beam photometry and headlamp

Oh no!! There was lower beam photometry and lower color!! Om my gosh!! Take all your HID's out people!! The world will end!

This was from your article about HID conversions done by a company in CALIFORNIA for people in WASHINGTON, D.C. Yeah, like I give a $hit about what they say I can shouldnt do with my truck in TEXAS.

There is no adverse effects from installing HIDS in your truck if you do them right.
