Default eBay Headlights

Trying to decide on some new headlights as I want some black housings. I differently want to install HIDs so take that into consideration with the choice.

Im looking at want looks like a factory style with just back housings for about $130 shipped and the other set is a single projector style with a ccfl ring around it for $350. Pretty big difference in price but maybe there is a difference in light out put.

Let me know what you guys think and please let me know what you use. Thanks

Do you have a link to the first style for comparison? Black housings are on my future list too.

What about Retro shop? I had JJ do a custom set painted black inside, then stepped to the 2013 projectors with LED turns, LOVE them!

Well I guess what all it cost to get that done as Im not trying to break the bank. Just get better lighting and little better look. Ive never been one too keep one vehicle for more than 1-2 years so don't want to put way too much money in it. Guess I haven't done a good job of that so far since I really like this truck and may actually keep it.

What headlights do you have right now? Dual or quad? Why not just bake yours apart and paint them yourself? I'd way sooner do that then spend the money for the painted ones off eBay.

Talked to the company extensively about the situation and all they said was "Put a bead of silicon around the whole housing." They wouldn't let me return them and they told me, the customer, to fix their problem with THEIR product. I'd stay away from dotcomracing if I was you.

He did an excellent job painting the inside of mine black, and you can add some Silverstars to help.

I have the dual setup as I have an express. I wanted to paint mine but attempted to do one and had such a difficult time taking them apart I gave up. Ive done 5-6 sets in the past and this unit was a pos. I now have moisture in my light that I tried to take apart so thats why Im looking for new ones.

Same thing happened to me. I bought the ones off eBay (not from dot.com racing, though) and I've had no problems with them so far, been about 8 months now.
