I did electrical tape first before i did the vht just to see what it would be like. The vht is kinda hard to spray on the glass lenses so just do very light coats that helped alot with mine

I was an idiot kid once. When I was in high school, I wanted to put a big-a** wing on an RX-7, but I didn't. Don't do this to your jeeps; your future selves will thank you.

My last post was a bit rash. But at the same time i know im not a idiot kid and that my jeep is just a toy. I have a 4 door family car for a dd. Bought a house before i was 21 responsibly take care of my wife and daughter.
Im just saying dont judge a book by its cover

Book covers shouldn't go out of their way to be the antithesis of what their contents actually are if they don't want to be judged by them.

All i am saying is you should not judge a person for one simple mod they have done to a vehicle. Someone has angry eyes on there jeep and all of the sudden they are a idiot?

It's not so much the 'mod' (how the hell some black tape or a quick spray of some tint qualifies as a 'mod' is beyond me,) it's the attempted justification for doing it.

Or maybe it's just me, but anthropomorphizing vehicles just seems silly. First it was scrotums for the rear, now it's eyelids for the front. The only time tape is acceptable on headlights is while track racing, to keep your busted headlights from littering glass everywhere.

Well comparing those truck nuts to angry eyes imho is not exactly the same. Angry eyes are not vulgar or offensive. Im not really trying to justify the "mod" just saying i did way the negative effects and like i said i did try it with black tape to see if it would make a huge difference in light output and my jeeps light are actually pretty good just as good as my 05 civic with silverstar headlights

Did you put angry eyes on your civic?

No other then a pioneer head unit and some of the interior lights being switched to led's my civic is bone stock. Like i said my jeep is simply a toy i did the headlights just to do them. Not trying to be rude about it but at the end of the day it is my jeep

Before i get flamed.... My little girls loves Dora The Explorer & Cars. my jeep is usually getting worked on its not DD status yet. i have slyvianas on till i get my rampage ones. so its fun for us to have the "eyes" on it. (plus im a honeybadger and really dont care)

Does is effect the light output ? Yes, with such poor factory lighting its prob not best to make a bad thing worse.

When you have a hard time seeing at night do you want to reduce any of the usable light ? i wouldn't

Do aftermarket headlamps with eyelids put out more light than stock ? Yes, look up the JPmags review of the different aftermarket options and install the one that suites you best if you are going to continue with this.

Will they be on my new lamps? i dont think so

Can you handle the heat you will get online/@ jeep gatherings when you show off how angry/sad your jeep looks ? if so buy a good flame suite & better lamps/lights and get to VHT/PlastiDiping, also make sure you jeep can keep up w/ the other guys offroad so they dont refer to you as the "stuck jeep with sad panda eyes" but say damn lets try to follow the badass jeep w/ angry eyes

just my .03cents
