Lightbulb Which Headlights!!! Need Pictures and Recommendations

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am thinking of upgrading my headlight assembly to something that is a bit more focused and has a separate High Beam. I do plan on installing HID Lights into them. I will put a link to some of the assemblies I am looking at below.

Can I get some feed back and see some Pictures of people's Mod's?

Does anyone know on Picture 1, is that a 2 peice headlight assembly(headlight separate from Turn signal)?

Thanks, Josh

Just a little bit of header panel modification and a wiring harness and you're good to go. Here's my truck...

Before the headlights/front end:


And After the 05+ headlights/front end:

A stock '05 headlight isn't going to be any good with an HID bulb in it......

You need a new housing if you Ever want to focus your new HID to throw light instead of just the scattered mess you'll have by putting it in a halogen housing

I personally dont like any of the headlights that you listed.
If it was me, I would do a hid retrofit, like this:

I have hids in 05 lights and it is an awesome light spread. Dunno why you would projectors they always blind on coming traffic. They always bother me. Too much work goes into converting to projectors anyway.
