I just used some krylon on the headlights and masked them off when I did mine. Yes the light output is reduced.

My litedots also are fine at night, but during the day I have gotten multiple comments that they are hard to see. My stock lights were more visible, and the savvy and other flushmount LED's are certainly brighter.. Once again I got these lights based purely off aesthetics to go along with the other black accents on my jeep.
So you reduced the output of already poor headlights at night and installed taillights that are difficult to see during the day.

I'll keep an eye out for your future rear ended someone/got rear ended by someone thread.

The obligatory MONSTER sticker just tops this off so perfectly.

I love the direction this thread went.

When I was a teenager my dad and I were in a corvette club with a few too many members telling everyone else how they should build their cars. Fart can honda's used to make me laugh until I saw one go 10 secs in the quarter, then crewed for a guy whose wife's 1.3 liter honda went 150 @ El Mirage and his went 230mph. Advertise for a drink company on my personal ride? No, but the monster logo looks pretty cool. I've been told my 4cyl square headlight jeep is slow, and it is but it suits my needs. Been told my IH is ugly, and from a pure aesthetics standpoint it is but I like the way it looks/runs and it works for me. I had a stinger on my vw squareback, loud/obnoxious as hell but fun at the time. (tho some thought it was stupid.)

The op wanted to know "how" not "if I should".

I don't have any interest in doing this to any of my rides but if I were I'd use black tape to get the angle you like then use high temp paint although it may not me needed. Experiment, you can always change it. Maybe try it the same color as your jeep, kind of the old school euro look. (it's been 20 something years, about time for that fad to come back around) It's your jeep, have fun with it!

Good Wheelin' to ya in whatever form it takes,

Cherokid.

PS. If it make a guy feel good to have a large sack swinging behind his big rear end on his big truck ... ?

your right,

I misspoke. The husbands car is an acura with a 2liter I think went 234mph. Seems her new motor is a 1.5 liter making 500+ hp and she broke into the 200mph club at bonneville with it. 204mph?

http://www.hondata.com/hondata_speed...s_release.html

So yes, the last I heard the 1.3 only did 150mph. The 2.1 went 234mph and the wife has a 1.5 going 204mph.

my bad.

Still prefer old domestic iron but those hondas can RUN!

Emo YJ!!!

Actually, I had the jeep painted and the shop just didn't paint them, SO I just ran with it.

Yeah, because only idiots anthropomorphize their vehicles.







Why is everybody so polarized about this? It's just for fun. People have been putting those black light covers and tint over their entire headlights for decades, what we're talking about here is a small percentage of the headlight (some people do way too much, I think for the effect less is better... literally an inch) and if done with a tint like Niteshades and not electrical tape or paint, isn't even blocking the light fully where it's applied.

I get flashed with my factory low beams and fog lights on all the time... I think they can see me. And if I need more light, I have high beams.

I don't think anyone said idiots. It's just some of the members believe it to be an unnecessary degradation of the factory lighting.

Besides, your examples, while shouting a more macho image of anthropomorphism of the aircraft, the flying tiger paint scheme in no way degrades the basic function of any of the jets systems.

Go ahead, build a case for saggy below the arse jeans on young men while you are at it. Both are about as useful and attractive.
