Headlight question / picture request

So, I would like to get a set of the crystal clear headlights on ebay. But, I dont want the crystal clear corners, just the headlights. I only want they because I think they will be better with HID's. I was wonderring if anyone has installed the crystal headlights with the stock corners and if it looks goofy? I dont really want to run HID's in my stock housings, because I dont want to make a huge glare and blind everyone. Couldnt find any pictures of just the clear headlights and stock corner markers... any help would be greatly appreciated guys! Thanks a lot!

i have that set up. looks great in my opinion. I'm also running 6000K HID's and the light distribution is great, clear cut off so i don't blind people.

Thats the link to the headlights. Not trying to get projectors. Just the clear aftermarkets.

Dcvance- do you have any head-on shots of yours? Looks pretty damn good from the side

If you decide you must have HIDs in your reflector headlamps, try to get DR* bulbs versus DP* bulbs (the star will be a number that changes depending on the bulb). The DR* bulbs are designed for reflector housings and won't glare as badly as typical HID bulbs

nope sorry, that is just an old pic i had from when i was going to sell it. nothing recent and no head on shots. they look good though, just do it. that is the first upgrade i do when I buy grand cherokee's (this is my 2nd), i buy clear housings and HID's. You won't regret it and the glare is obsolete.

I dont know but like all ZJ headlights they are POS approved. I already broke the one of the clips for the retainer . Unfortunately I cant find a single headlight, only pairs.
