Ah! You better be careful with those. IMHO, those are gonna give you a headache. Not to be mean or anything but I dealt with a lot of LED type products from Hong Kong and what not and I always see myself returning it within the month of purchasing it. Yea some China products have done well for me but it all depends on the product and the seller. I ALWAYS make sure that the seller from ebay is a top rated seller (US or China) or anywhere else in that matter. To be honest, you should of spent the little bit extra money and get the actual halos from TRS because those things are guarantee to work. But if you were short on money (after buying everything) then you had to do what you had to do. But just make sure that you install them correctly because usually the LEDs within the product will either burn or blow up and then it would look "uneven". But that's just my rant and personal experience. But overall they look good and wouldn't mind seeing the end results of your setup. Keep us posted!

Haha, let me guess 6 headlamps lol. Why are you going indepth with it? Why not just stick with the minis because there good looking on your truck.

Well actually it was 4 headlamps. I practiced on one headlamp I was about to throw away (heating it and opening it). Worked on first try. So I started on my first 2 headlamps (aftermarket). PITA if you ask me. But got them opened and worked on those. Aiming wasn't going so well (my mistake by cutting in to big). So went with my factory headlamps I saved way back when and use the aftermarket clear lenses. Cutted it, aimed it and re-sealed them and it was a piece of cake lol. Just need a lot of patience and time on your hands to do such a project like this.

Depending on the ones you got, you have to look at the cutoff shield. Usually it does not matter which ones are which. But I think some are different and has to be precise about it. But I've never heard of such thing. So it shouldn't matter.

I know man. My parents liked it chrome too and so did I but the light would of shined through the back of the shroud causing it to light up from the bowl reflector which wouldn't of looked right. So I painted it black to eliminate that and to match the truck and now it looks good. Still has some chrome (not all black) so I'm not complaining
