What is The Deal With These Headlights?

Are they the usual crap, like the reviews I have seen on pretty much every aftermarket non OEM headlamp out there? or not so bad?

Anyone have them, and if you do any pictures and feedback? I am not a big fan of the LED's in the housing, kinda off putting IMO

I believe ratmonkey used to have something similar to those, and he absolutely hated them. Said they went to **** after a couple months.

I have thoes on my Jeep
they aren't too bad. the leds on them still work and I have had them for over a year. The light output sucks and they are not adjustable. so they are aimed a little high but I haven't had any one complain or flash their lights at me.

But I think the one piece looks better than the stock 3 piece. As do the leds some people love them, some people hate them.

The fact alone that the light output sucks would have me running far away. I went with clear factory style and new bulbs. Output is amazing and it cost a fraction of those fugly things.

Since the light output does suck I always have my harbor freight fog lights on (which are really bright and great for the money) and when on back roads I normally have my hella 500s on. But you do have to watch for incoming cars to turn them off.

Well that clears it up, I wont be getting these. I will just get the 'euro' clear headlamps, and clear side markers whenever I feel froggy. My oem ones are so so yellow and fadded, light output sucks.

If companies made headlights from glass like back in the day, we wouldnt have to worry about this crap. My z headlights are 8 years older, and look brand new, and shine amazing. Screw plastic headlamp housings. Be nice if a company made glass replacement aftermarket ones for newer vehicles.
