I believe it was yes because there was a yellow card that told the price and the deal

As long as they are DOT approved then they are legal. Aftermarket replacement projector headlights, though as hideous as most of them are for WKs, should be DOT approved and therefore legal. Drop in plug-n-play kits for halogen housings are completely illegal without a doubt and blind oncoming drivers. Retrofit kits to mount projectors in the halogen housings, focus the light according to DOT spec. So while this may still be illegal, you won't be blind drivers and won't appear legal since they conform to DOT spec as if they were legal.

If you follow Omelet's build you will see he is using 08+ projectors with an 05-07 bumper and simply fabbed up a filler bezel to fill in the gap below the headlight.

Is that a big deal? Because that's a pretty good deal on that oil at autozone, and I was about to go buy some.

Washed my jeep, went and got the oil changed.

Went to the mall, only to come out and see that someone decided they would be kind enough to spit their bright blue gum on the hood of my jeep. And the sun made the gum melt to my black hood.

Gotta love living so close to Detroit, all the surrounding cities like mine just keep getting worse because the scum are fleeing Detroit.

Seriously no one respects other people stuff. I have given up on trying to have nice bumpers everyday it feels like someone runs into it.
