    Show me your headlights!

    Wondering what headlights you all run and if you have done any modifications. I just hopped on ebay and it seems there are a ton. What do you run? Please post pictures and share your experiences..

    Are you wanting lit up pics? I just swapped to H4 diamond cut housings with decent H4 bulbs and it greatly improved the lighting up front. I plan to do a HID retrofit sometime in the future, but who knows when that'll be.

    Lights off please. I like those. Clean, bright and allow for greater visibility.

    I'm leaning towards something like this.

    http://betterautomotivelighting.com/...nversion-kits/

    I'd really like some kind of projector setup in a black housing, but most of them look chintzy as hell.

    This one isn't terrible.

    There's always the L200 Savana parts....if you can find them.



    Someone was selling a headlight and grille kit on eBay a few months ago.

    Not sure how I feel about the L200. Part of me likes it, but it also looks a tad over the top. Haven't decided on what I think yet. I do like those lenses. I was browsing ebay of all places for some ideas and the blacked out projectors caught my eye. Lots of good reviews on your second link.

    The L200 Savanna headlight setup was being sold by Noahwins on here as part of a whole front end swap.

    I just ordered some from summit. They had some sick black housing projectors but they were around $300 for the pair. I went with the ones showing in the link below. I also have an H4 Bi-Zenon 8000K hid kit from another vehicle I had lying around so hopefully the headlights will get here tomorrow or Tuesday and the weather is permitting.

    Good thing you didn't get black housings, they suck and provide no light output. And please don't put HID's into those housing without projectors, you will just be blinding everyone in oncoming traffic.

    1. Those black housings are projector so they illuminate exactly the same as chrome projectors
    2. The ones I ordered are also projectors so they will suit HID's well, plus I am not worried about other people. I drive a small pickup. If I was a lifted anything I would be more considerate.

    Most of the "projectors" you see on ebay(and the Summit ones you posted) 6x7 headlights aren't real projectors, they just kind of "look" like a projector. They don't project the light at all like a real projector and you will be blinding everyone, I know I have a little lowered pickup and did the HID thing a few years back and had them pointed all the way down...... still blinded people. But do as you wish

    I agree with Droppedmitsu on this one. Check the reviews on headlights very well because what looks cool and advertised to be the new wonder headlight are usually terrible. Many of these projector wannabees are usually the lowest quality and you will be an unhappy person with them.
    So far as I look for headlights, those multiple led headlights seem to have good reviews and decent lighting, but I don't think they have been 100% approved by the DOT.
    A good rule for headlights are if they are expensive and brand named, they can be trusted as so. If they come from China, (cough, cough) leave them there.

    Don't forget about Amazon also. They commonly have cheaper prices on many items.

    I have a set of classic Hella 7x6 headlights that are similar to the Cibie Zbeams I used to have on Geronimo - will be installing them shortly

ID:	16394 company seems to have a good line of headlights. Pricey a bit for my taste, but they have some futuristic looking creations.

    This is their claim in the headlight world. But as I always say, check all available types and review review review, before purchasing.

    Their claim looks purely speculative - and are they specifying left or right hand drive lamp assemblies? You can manually adjust your headlights to generate that projection pattern but I've always dialled my headlights in for high beam depth with a parallel focus point (I never actually use high beam ever but I don't want to blow anyone's head off with an over adjusted headlight). A full set of 6x4" H4 dual headlight assemblies are on my wish list and I'm between choosing straight H4 semi sealed or something a little more fancy like LED rimmed headlights...

    I have a set of 4 Cibie Z beams I used to have on my 85 Ram 50 - all 4 lights have 100W Halogen high beam bulbs - it would light road signs up at over 2 miles away on the interstate so bright you could read them like daylight. Funny how even the most ignorant driver would dip their lights when I flashed them back with my high beams...

    They probably were getting melted and hit their head on the light switch with those lights Pennyman. I think I heard the astronauts even talking about how they could see them from outer-space.

    And they are going into the 86 project truck with relays so they get full voltage and ceramic sockets so they don't melt...

    Here are mine. Rx330 retrofit in some pilot housings. Projectors are modified with clear lenses and bi-xenon shields. With oem phillips ballasts and 4300k bulbs, the low beam output is some of the best I've ever seen.
