    Yea I spoke to someone here about those retros.. seems like a lot of hassle to get them done.. they look good tho.. I'll probably just buy some new ones and call it good..

    That looks cool, and confusing.. I'm sure they have some type of lights that change all that in one right? I want to get those projector drl tubes.. those like white L Shaped one. Are those spyders ?

    No, they don't. When you buy the Spyders, you're still using your original bulbs. That light Kris is using in that video IS a VLED switchback bulb. I have the same ones in my truck. It's another $200 above and beyond the purchase of the Spyder Headlights.

    The problem you're going to have is that most of them are all LED bulbs. They draw a lot less juice than your current setup. So without the kit with resistors and such you'll get hyper flash. Your truck will think the bulb is out because its barely drawing any juice and it'll blink like crazy.

    The VLED switchbacks will work in your stock headlights...just not cheap.

    Theres tons of reviews on here about the various kinds and makes of switchback bulbs. My past experience and what seems to be consistent on here is you get what you pay for. Many have tried the cheaper route with Amzon or ebay options but then go through several bulbs which becomes a pricey sunk cost.

    If you just want to delete the amber you could swap for another single color like white. The non VLed switchbacks are a lot cheaper and just as durable. But not sure if you'll be running into any legal issues depending on where you live.

    The other option is retro headlights. I like my spyders and switchbacks but eventually I wanna go full retro with a switchback led strip

    A little of this and a little of that.
    @Jsena you could look at Winjet's. They make some ok looking head and tail lights as well.

    Wow,, looked at some light threads here... spending $400 plus on new headlights the. Sending them to get Retro fitted for another $$$$ seems crazy.. why can't these companies just make something cool and ready to go
