    Has anyone tried out these?

    I'm looking to change out the OEM lamps on the truck as they're getting a little yellow and they sort of suck anyways. I also don't particularly want to drop $1200+ on the morimotos I liked.

    If not these, can anyone recommend an economical projector or LED lamp? For ease I was thinking projector but not opposed to the wiring mods needed to switch to LEDs.

    Many threads on the Alpharex headlights. They aren't bad but if you can catch the OEM Pro headlights on sale you aren't paying much more and that is a better light that will last longer.

    OEM LEDS and Ihacker harness is the way to go. Both are great quality. One of the best mods for the $

    I have these, I do like them but they were a pain to get the wiring correct. I also put in some nice LED headlight bulbs that help A LOT.

    I would recommend putting some extra silicone sealant around the lens area before install though, I had to pull mine and do it after a year or so.

    I run them, got them on sale for $350, and then put in some LASfit led bulbs. Great light output and quality IMO

    At this point in the year for such a somewhat large purchase you may want to wait for the BLACK FRIDAY and Christmas season sales that generally occur every year to maybe get 20% and/or free shipping. But of course with the Covid excuse being used to cover everything from NASA spaceships to dental floss who knows what will come this year. Just a thought.
