Which cab lights to get???

I'm getting cab lights for my truck here soon. I need to know what you guys think? I am looking at the clear lenses with chrome bases or smoked lenses with black bases. I'm leaning towards the clear lenses because nothing on my truck is black or smoked out.





Here are the lenses I'm leaning towards...

Here are my second options...

Marty.. I'm not gonna vote.. cause I feel like this is something that you need to decide for yourself. Go whatever direction you feel is best... and stick with it.

I recently put superwhite lenses on mine.. and have gotten rave reviews from everyone but one person. Doesn't matter though, I like them.. so they are staying!!!

OK, um, I like the _____ ones.

I am a fan of smoked ones, but my truck is black. And yours being silver, I would say smoked too, but whatever you want to go with.

Oh, if you get the kit from ford, it is like $78. And the smoked covers should be less than $40. not sure what price you are looking at for the other, but that is something to think about too.

Sorry, i thought i was on the ford forum lol. Yep you can get the Dodge ones. I dont see a complete base and lens kit in my catalog for the Fords. Do you have a part number? Or is this something they are going to release soon?
