Heres a sideshot of it -

and heres a pic of the new headlights
no problem.any issues whit that lift.i though about going with that lift or a 3in budget boost.im leaning towards the iro kit. and put new coils in the back sometime. what do you have for trackbar in the back.is it a bracket in the back?

They are good, better than the old yellowed stockers that were leaking and cracked up. We looked at the tinted ones but went with these instead. Did you get the set with the taillights included? The way the local fuzz is, he gets hassled for the tinted license plate cover all the time. The gold phillips head screw on the backside is your up and down adjustment. You will have to do some measuring and drill a hole in the radiator support to make the adjustment. That is the only down side to them. We wired the led's into a separate switch instead wiring them into the markers.


here is a shot of the tails we got with the heads

nick - right now the trackbars are stock, we drilled the hole for the front like it says in the IRO instructions. We didnt get in any hurry, measured several times, and took our time drill the hole and have had zero issues. The back we havent done anything to yet it off just a bit but not noticable. Adjustable trackbars are being saved for now, that is going to be the next investment. The kit was a very easy install and has been flawless and we have had no issues.
