Headlights

So, my trucks headlights are almost worthless. I have continued to clean the lenses regularly to keep them from going totally yellow, and yet they keep going back to "bad" all to quickly. One adjuster is busted, so my right headlight keeps a watchful eye on the ground 4 feet in front of the truck (not too helpful) and the left one points up at the sky (again, not to helpful) I've decided to break down and just buy all new assemblies. Do any of you guys have any recommendation for headlights? My truck is a Sport model, so I have to go with something that will fit. Stock replacement is fine by me, as long as I can see something driving past 6pm. I looked on E bay, and found a few nice looking stock replacement sets for around $215 shipped.

Let me know what you guys think, Thanks.

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...

I bought some headlights for my sisters civic of a company on E-bay when a broken tire chain wiped out the drivers side,i will try to find the recipet fast shipping did as they promised and headlights look and fit like they should (her car came with a level inside it to help with adjustment these aftermarkets had them as well I figured for the price I got them I would be lucky If they somewhat resembled them.) I f I had to again I would buy again from them...

the company was Ipex Motoringout of Rowland Heights, CA these were $47 a peice when honda wanted $350 and they ouldnt have been crome (without the amber corners)

I take it all back... they only have the projector style for the sport... the sport model really throws you

Thanks for the info. I'm most likely going to go with what ever sounds like its decent quality, and is inexpensive. Maybe by Saturday I'll make up my mind...either that or I'm going to have to start taping my MagLight to the front of the Dodge...

Have you considered the Sport Headlight Conversion?
Easily some of the best headlights I have ever driven behind. I modified mine upon instalation, I have dual 9007 bulbs instead of a 9007 and a 9004, and new wiring harnesses with relays.

9004 bulbs bring the suck.
