black headlights

just wanted to show everyone some pictures of my headlights, I know people see them on ebay and have questions about them. I think they look good, I have silverstar ultras in them and the output is better than the stock housing but I wouldn't say it's anything great. let me know if you have any questions about them, here's some pics:

I like them. They go best with matching paint.

Had them on for a few years. They dont hold up and the beam pattern is horrible. Put new stocks in last week, much much better functionality.

That was my experience too. Terrible pattern and output. Even with the 9007 conversion.
Used them for my hid retrofit.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I think they are still better than the stock housing, but I upgraded my bulbs when i did them too so that obviously had an affect, strictly a visual upgrade (no pun intended)

I don't have any and won't be able to take any in the near future, but if you can just imagine them being slightly better that the stock housings that's what they are imo

When I had them all the light was focused into a horizontal stripe. No upper beam and no road way illumination at all.
