Default Sonar Halo Projector Headlights?

Anyone have a review on these?
How is the cut off line on the projectors? How is the quality of the light, etc.
I will be running HIDs in the lights

I want some reviews on these

Same thing three posts below yours. Spyder/Sonar same ish.

They work fine, cutoff is okay. Don't expect much though. Still look nice, but don't expect to get the same output of a 7 series BMW setup.

Light quality is iffy floods in odd spots.

Do a retrofit if you have time and $$$.

Guess I should have done some research first haha

I am not sure if I want to spend the money on these yet. I want a nice projector that has a decent cut off and some halos like these have, but I have been getting some mixed reviews

I guess I am probably just gonna have to buy them and find out myself how I like them

Fuck it, I ordered them

I will be putting 3000k 35w HID in the HI beams for dust/ fog and 6k 35w HID in the lo beam to match my (4) 9" offroad lights on my prerunner bumper.

I already have a switch wired for the halos,. I currently have angel eyes in my truck right now, so I am just going to take those out and use that switch and the wiring for the halos in the new projector housings

Cool dude! Enjoy them, if you're like me you will want to upgrade after awhile to some retrofitted projectors.

Almost well probably the same as the ebay ones I see. Cuttoff is more like a smiley face looking at you. And with that price, you are better off doing a retro fit projector in your headlamps with some real projectors. Just like this:




Price was a whole lot less than that link you posted. This is my two cents. Everyone has there own opinions and it all comes down to you. It's your truck, put whatever you think looks cool or looks good on your truck. If you like those, I say get it. But you asked for reviews and I gave it

I kind of jerry-rigged them into my truck the other day, so I did a super sloppy job on everything haha. I have 2 ballasts going to each headlight that are just sitting in my engine bay, and all the wires and shit are just everywhere. I am going to go thru and clean everything up as soon as I get a chance (maybe this weekend) and then I will take some pics.

I also need to readjust the headlights so theyre aimed properly. I will take pics when I get a shot
