    I think it looks pretty cool. It has that lighted ring around the light like the euro cars. How is the light output on those?

    If I may answer out of turn: The projector lights generally do very well. They are bright, clear, and most of them offer a great line of light - ie the bright doesn't blind oncoming drivers.

    If you mean how bright are the halos - they aren't very bright at all. They are subtle enough to add a little "oomph" to the overall look, but they don't add to any sort of light.

    Cascott- tough call! The truck is gray/beige/champagne, right? I don't know that the black lights wouldn't stand out a little too much for your liking.

    Let me see if I can take some pictures of what I've got here so you can see some of the different lights on different applications.

    I'll be back in 10!

    Ok, black car with black housing halo lights:

    OFF
    [media]http://www.junglemistreptiles.com/gmtc/lite01.JPG[/media]
    ON

    BRIGHTS
    [media]http://www.junglemistreptiles.com/gmtc/lite04.JPG[/media]
    See me cut off at the knees with the projector lights having a defined line of light
    [media]http://www.junglemistreptiles.com/gmtc/lite05.JPG[/media]
    (the rest of the light comes from the camera's flash - sorry!)
    I apologize I don't have pictures of the halos on. I've had to disassemble the switch assembly to move things around inside.



    Regular lights with a black housing - can't see much but I thought you'd enjoy the walking stick..

    I don't much like the looks of these black housing lights. These are what I fear a non-black/dark truck will look like with black housing halo lights.




    Projector bulb upgrades for regular sealed beam:

    See?

    And with lights on (blue lights off)

    Strictly from a "looks" standpoint, I go with the chrome look. Considering the grill, I think the black might be too dark. Just my 2 cents though.

    I would go with the silver backing on the head lights. You have a nice chrome push guard on the front that I think would match up better.

    i was thinking that the black wouldnt go well with it too, i think it would take away from the look drastically. and springthing... im lmao here, the whole stick-bug thing, lol. and i tried reading the descriptions on those but it didnt say if i could or couldnt interchange different lamp outputs or if that particular brand has "thier special product" that fits that assembly.

    I think they will fine in chrome....48 bucks to ship those? Seems high? Seems sellers low ball the price and make it up in shipping now days.

    well, there is nothing wrong with what i have now, but i was just trying to get opinions on if people liked the looks of this product or if it was just me. also if you look at the price of the lights on that website, they are like twice as much if not more than 2x the price of those on ebay. i do like some of their styles though. thanks for the visuals
