What wheels are those? Look like American racing? Can you get a couple up close pictures? And are they a gloss black finish or more matte? Thanks

I've heard lots of bad things about those Spyder headlights you have. How have they held up for you? Would you still recommend them? Was it difficult to splice in LEDs? Any links for someone looking to do the same? Great looking truck BTW

All aftermarket heads suck (light output, cheap LEDs, crappy dim halos, etc.)... best bet is to go with retrofits.... here's my retrofit blackout heads/fogs. Sorry to hijack OP.

Thanks tips. I'm aware "all aftermarket headlights suck". I was asking someone with experience on one particular set of headlights their personal opinion on them. It's easy to say go get retrofits. It's another to shell out $1600 on a good set when you get spyders for $300. Your truck looks BA but it's hard for me to justify spending that kind of money just for a BA look. As easy as these headlights are to swap I can buy 5 new sets of spyders over the next 5 years and still be ahead.... Crisis any comment on your spyders? Do they suck as bad as murder thinks or have they served their purpose?

I have the spyders as well, the light coming out of them with standard H1 halogen bulbs are not great. That being said they're 100 times better than stock setups on my '74 F100 or '95 Lighting. You're not going to have problems seeing with them once you get them adjusted properly. Mine have been in for about 2 years now and I've had no issues with quality of the actual headlight assembly. I've read that the halo part is dim and shorts out easily, I have no experience there since I never wired them in since I bought them to be black and projector assemblies, couldn't care less about the halo. HIDs work fine in them if you can find a quality set. Would I rather have a set of FX 2014 projectors, yeah... But I only paid $150 for mine on ebay for the set because they had some scratches on the lense on the bottom where it's not even seen when installed.

Thanks rains. Yeah that's generally my impression off these headlights as well. Cheap way to improve exterior appearance. Maybe you sacrifice some light brightness but I'm a city boy who won't be driving out where God lost his slippers anytime soon. Thanks.
