What new head light lenses/ housings


Recommended Posts

What are good new headlight housings/lenses to get to replace original fogged over lenses? Not the bulbs ,

I have the regular stock lenses now, not sport truck

Ive seen all the stuff on ebay and amazon.  Are some junk? 

 

I read ,

Whatever you do don't get cheapo housings from Amazon.  OEMs have a better reflector.

Just replace(What do you mean by upgrade? Do you mean get the 2 bulb sport lenses)

 

Also, do the Non sport replacements come in clear/non ribbed lenses ?

 

Seems ive seen them before but I dont see any when I google search. A friend of mine has the non sport clear lenses IIRC

 

Is there a advantage / disadvantage to clear vs ribbed? The Clear look kind of cool

The ribbed lense like OEM has is meant to defuse the light.  

 

Upgrade would be to go sport or to retrofit projectors.  

 

 

If you want to just replace what you have then I would go with OEM again from Ebay or similar.   If you are going to use the halogen bulbs again then don't get clear lense aftermarket stuff, the housings are just not good.

Basically I was looking for what brand name OEM aftermarket.

 

Looks like look for "DOT approved OEM"

I thought you had to re-wire and put in relays etc so both bulbs stay on at highbeam....When you convert to sport headlights

 

That link looks like just pig tails to separate for two bulbs each side instead of one dual bulb

 

Does the low beam bulb go off on high beam (like the non sport)with that set-up? It should id think

Found these https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00O83JAWE?psc=1

 

Are the bulbs in these different than stock?

 I bought an aftermarket oem style made by Eagle Eyes. Cant remember where though. $75.00 with the oe bulbs. The work fine for me and the only problem I had was the left one, I had to really adjust it it to get the light to light up the road and not the shoulder. Not sure what was wrong.  

 If you want both high and low beams on at the same time it requires something extra. I know there was product out called 

Brite Box just for that purpose. Never felt the need for both myself.

I also replaced both of my headlight assemblies with Eagle Eyes. I'm very pleased with them. I'm upgrading to auxiliary driving and fog lights with the mod article here on the site. My original lights were damaged in an accident.
