Need New headlights...help

Ive done a lot of searching for headlights but still dont have many answers. I want to get the black or smoke look for my WJ, but dont know which ones to go with, also do they require new bulbs or how does that work. Thanks!

I got these smoked projectors. Ebay item # 130504735456. I didnt need different bulbs. They will accept halogen or HID. I already had HID but either will work. Here is a pic of mine.

Yeah they are. I dont have any more pics right now. I will put some up after work if I can. I like the smoke ones but they wernt as dark as I wanted. They have another set that are black. Same housing. Just black not smoke. They are clear spots where the leds are but the rest is black. I think those would look better, but I was going for all smoke look. They are pretty cool tho. Where the led turn signals are they are like spikes. I will go take some pics. I wish i would have got these ones. ebay item # 390301560749. I dont really care fro chrome taillights and the black ones show the leds more to match my 3rd brake light. Just a preference. Pictures dont do them justice. Right at dusk they look the best.

How's the quality compared to factory? I mean they aren't cheap junk are they? I need new headlights since mine are really fogged. I may try to polish them first but if that doesn't work I want to get the headlights like above.

The one I got dont seem like junk. In all fairness, there is a little gap (not noticible unless up close). The overall quality I was impressed with. I chose these because the look most like factory (with the turn signals under the headlamp). I was suprised how much detail are in these. Lots of little grooves or ribs? around the halos that I dont see on the earlier model (cheaper) projectors.I didnt bother hooking up the halos or leds yet. I dont have a heat gun and I wont splice factory wires with out shrink wrapping. They look pretty clean tho.

^ I fully agree they look very close to factory just with a nice updated look on the LED and Halos.
-Quality: at the very least it is on PAR with the factory. There is a little gap as stated above but unless you are looking for it; you will never notice it. It is very well sealed so that no oxidation will form, much better then the factory ones.
-Installation: you can do this many ways, either putting LEDs and Halos into the parking lights or you can switch it around like I did with one of the Halos also being a turning single. The splicing isnt difficult. Take a razor blade and cut off a little off the top of a wire and then just stick in the new wires then use electric tape and your perfectly fine.

^^^The first pair in your post^^^
I just got for 140 shipped

I am replacing a pair that I paid over 300 for a while back, cuz ppl on here said "cnt get the cheap ones on ebay", but i'm here to tell ya that structure wise they are all the same. my current housing's are crakced and this is why i'm replacing them.

but i'm not sure what the hi-beams are in these new ones.............anybody ?
and from the description I think (hope) that my current 9006 type HID setup will work for lo-beams.
