Thread: New headlights

  1. #1

    Default New headlights

    Hit a pheasant and busted out a headlight so I figured it would be a good time to upgrade. So far I am very happy with them and have had lots of people stop and ask me about them. These are made by Spyder and so far the only thing I dont like is that the high beams aren't quite as good as the old ones were but I am going to put some new bulbs in as well as get the foglights wired up so they stay on which will help a lot.

    I am also looking for opinions on what to do with my grille. The chrome is peeling in one spot (rather pathetic for a 3 year old pickup....) and I am sure its going to worsen. Right now I am looking at a black grille out of a WT but am worried that would be way to much black and would look like a hole. I am trying to find some way to get around using chrome, stainless steel is fine but the quality of chrome makes me want to eliminate it from my pickup.

    That was my thoughts at one time but I need an entire grille replacement due to the chrome issues. Any brands of full replacements that aren't outrageously priced??

    I like the mono look so that would be a white grille to match the truck. Chrome plastic just does not hold up very well replaced a lot as a svc mgr
