∆ What 9chester said.. That's just the design part of the light. No LED C-Bar on those.

I got these and they appear to be the same as your reference.

As others have stated, clips are really poor quality, and the dark portion is a dark gray not black. Mine arrived in good shape with no projectors or other issues, although as stated in this thread, loose projector(s) has proved to be a fairly easy do-it-yourself fix.
The C-bar in these DO NOT light up.

Okay, I'm happy now. After taking the drivers headlight back out and fighting to get the projector popped back onto both mounting tabs, it's finally correct. It was a bit of a pain but pretty easy. The clips were bent so I fixed that also so the light now sits correctly on the truck and the projector is secure.

You haven't seen any chrome like yours but with a chrome reflector have you?
This is the closest I've seen to what I want but I dont think its the same as what everyone here is talking about.http://www.ebay.com/itm/301807997763

You mean like a chrome reflector as opposed to the orange ones? I haven't. I'd almost guess the orange reflectors are necessary to get the DOT approval for aftermarket headlights?
Edit: I see what you're looking for. You want all chrome without the dark gray. I'm sure if you dig around the internet enough you could find something to your liking. I just seen these in this thread and really like the simple, factory look so I went with these.

I can confirm that the black and the lighted black ones both have the same projector. I would assume the chrome ones are the same as well but I have not done a build with them yet.

I had to stay up until midnight last night to get enough darkness to test out the lights. Overall I'm pretty happy with the output with 35w 6000k HIDs. I think I have them aimed a little low so I'll fix that in the fall. The high beams are pretty good too!

I won't be needing headlights much up here in the land of the midnight sun until August/September.

What hid/led kits are you guys buying? i just purchased a set of factory style projector headlights for halogen f150s. Stock bulb on the halogen trucks is an H13, from what i have seen many of the headlights come with an H7 bulb. So if I am understanding correct i would need an HID/LED kit with an H7 bulb with a ballast for an H13 stock harness.

I had a Hi/Low H13 HID kit in my F-150 that came with a relay harness. So when I ordered the headlights I just ordered some H7 HID bulbs off ebay and plugged those into my existing harness. Then I wired the high beam shutter to the high beam wire that was used on my relay harness. I've had great luck with VVME HID kits since 2007 in many vehicles.
