What are y'all's opinion on the projector headlights, I have heard mixed reviews on them, some people love them, others don't. I honestly don't want HIDs only because I hate driving when someone is coming at me with them. I don't want to be blinding people and getting flashed everynight. I live in a rural area, I travel alot at night, nothing but back roads pretty much, and cows and hogs are always out. I want something that will improve my vision while not ruining others.
The headlights I have on mine are standard low beams / HID hi-beams and to be completely honest the low beams are pretty scary driving at night but I probably just really need to aim them in. As far as the hi beams go their is a HUGE difference. But I live out in the country area so I can use them quite a bit. They make much better headlights then the ones I got, I just had a really tight budget to work with.

Thank you, and tell your buddy thanks as well. There is not many rims to choose from for our trucks lol. I love that red of yours.

I wasnt aware that you could get hid hi-beam, while keeping the regular low beams. Now you might be putting some thoughts in my head.

I know that feeling......and if it's an f-series, it's not pink or yellow, and it's not lowered, I'm generally impressed so I wouldn't worry there lol.

but seriously, your truck is awesome.
