    Default IPCW black projector headlights... Horror stories anyone?

    I'm thinking of trading my stock headlights for the IPCW black projectors and I know some of you have reviewed different projectors but does anyone have any insight with this particular make? I've done some research and the IPCWs seem to be the way to go.

    I have OEM projectors in my tuck so I am no help. Have you also looked at Recon and Anzo? I know a couple members swear by each of them. And a few guys mention the double halo (top and Bottom) available in the anzo

    I've always used IPCW like my tails now and If I ever had a problem (1 that I can remember) They replaced them. It was a burned out panel from the Winter salt... Click image for larger version.

    I have projectors in mine... no problems. The biggest pain was aiming them... the high beams are a PITA to get to the adjustment bolts once installed. They perform way better than the factories... even in fog. I have no regrets.

    I see that you went with recons? Did you choose them over the others because of dependability or performance or did you just go with them out of preference?

    Ok, so I found some LED tail lights by recon for sale that someone had bought but never used. They are on the way. When they come in I will be adding the high output LED reverse bulb and then installing them! I'll post pics when I'm done.

    I went with them because of user reviews.... and because I liked the design. I wanted clear lines... didn't want anything interfering with the light. They are so bright even on the lows I have people flashing me thinking I have my brights on.
