    Just thought Id share my current experiences with the projectors I recently installed (as in 20 mins ago :lol:). HIDs seem to be one of the top things to do to a truck, yet I havent seen very many of the 90s trucks/suvs with projector style headlights. Searching and searching, I finally decided to take a chance with some housings off of ebay, and I must say, I am very satisfied. Heres the link to auction, I highly recommend buying from them if youve considered projectors. Cant beat it for 80 bucks shipped.

    Left side projector, right side reflector. Notice the scattered light compared to the left cutoff line.

    Those are definately some of the best night shots that I have seen taken, and you did an awesome job aiming those headlights. Did you just install them right out of the box with no further adjustment, or did you have to tweek them a little bit? I know when I had my projectors they were horrible to aim, I spent a good 4 hours on mine and I still didn't have the perfect line straight across like you do. Beautiful job on them, I don't think the dealership could do it better than that! :money:

    I appreciate the praise, one thing that I noticed while doing research is that everyone who had projectors/upgraded headlights was that they didnt take pics of the actual lights themselves working, so it didnt really give you an idea if they were any good. Looks can only go so far...

    As far as installing goes, the lights themselves are fairly easy to install and aim, the only reason it took me a while is because I noticed that the plastic moldings that the lights actually attached to had cracked and would noticebly shift while driving. In order to replace those, I had to remove the whole grill shell and lights, which is fairly easy but time consuming. Finally, I parked on the side of my house and tryed to pick a spot that would give me a good amount of light, but at the same time try and keep it low enough to protect the lowered/dropped cars (will see how they are tonight). After a couple turns of a screwdriver, I was good to go.
