Some close-ups if you haven't seen them before.

Love how the inside trim of the headlights seem to match the grille, or come close enough to matching. Hard to beat OE quality too.

Michael, you have a great eye! Yes, they match the XL grill. This adds to my theme as keeping a "factory" appearance to the truck. I wanted the OE quality too. Of course, I really wanted to get rid of the extra chrome that the stock headlights have. The stock lights looked out of place on my truck, to me.

I'm going to throw this out there, so, pack away your feelings if it hits you. I was just about to select "purchase now" on those Morimoto XB's. I just had to have them. Then someone posted a problem with them. So I decided to wait a bit. I don't need no problems with $1,500 lights.

While I was waiting, I was checking with the hot-rod shop and inquiring on the dual exhaust. The Ayatollah of Exhausts offered me a real-deal-Lucille if I drove over immediately and had the work done. His shop was very slow due to the Christmas Holidays. Cash talks, everyone loves Benjamin Franklin's at Christmas.

While I was waiting, I noticed Ebay had their 15% off sale. So, I jumped on the SE headlights and rear Bilstein shocks.

Long story short, I ended-up getting the custom made duals, quality factory SE headlights, Bilstein rear shocks and CalTrend custom fitted seat covers, ALL for less money than the Morimoto's.

And to be honest, I really think, in my mind at least, the Morimoto's would look like something from the 1970's J.C. Witless catalog on my truck. I'm not looking for a Star Trek themed truck. I want to stay with a "Hey Ralph, Is that a factory package truck?" theme.

But, to each his or her own.

Damn, they do match the grille !
I think you made the right choice with the Ford SE headlights, they look great on your truck.
Awesome deal on all those mods

Beautiful dog.
