    I'd like to know the same. Several guys in here have painted their tail-lights black but I am guessing you can't do this with headlights, too hot?

    You can check out my headlights I got off of Ebay. The housing is black but the lenses are clear. Not sure if this is what you are looking for but I'm really happy with them. Just go to my pictures and you can see them.

    a freind of mine purchased the black housing with clear front headlights and they are crap. they look cool in the day time but are worthless at night and you can barley tell that they are on when riding in the truck at night...

    I recently bought some clear projector headlights off ebay; they're made by Sonar, I believe. Nice quality. They actually have REAL projectors in them, so with the HIDs I've got that nice cutoff line.

    If you just buy the clear lens headlights though the light pattern will be crap. Probably what dzmolek is talking about... the reflectors aren't made properly and the lenses aren't fluted so they just throw the light around everywhere.
