    I desperately need to replace the headlights on my 96 Tahoe. I'm talking about the entire lens/housing, not just the bulbs.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the link. I'm all set on the technical side though. On my 97 I pulled the composites and installed 88-91 style sealed beams. At the same time I upgrade the wiring with relays, and added switchable dual burn. Huge improvement in light output. I also like the ability to aim the high beams independently of the lows. The downside of the sealed beams is the limited bulb selection, no SilverStars for example. Appearance is debatable, I personally think the sealed beams look a little more "truck".

    Curious if anyone has installed a particular composite replacement and been super happy with them.
