Default not much out there

Its tuff finding a composite housing for the 1989 to 1992 ranger/explorer/bronco2. i have a 1991 and thought of changing mine as well, havent had much luck, although i did switch the bulbs over to an hid system. that made alot of difference!

Default I gotta have more cowbell!!!

the hid kit i purchased was 120$ but i found the cheap ones for around 90$ yes its kinda bluish, but when you look out your windshield, the difference is amazing. and its not blue enough to look like a Ricer.

those are clear lense with a multi shaped reflector, they are good, untill they get hit by a rock and get a hole in them, they are pretty thin material, unles you have a rock guard to put over them, the factory housing is thicker and fauceted, so it stands up to rocks. at least thats a concern in my area, we have alot of crap on the roads that gets thrown up by cars on the freeways. rock chips seem to be a yearly thing here in windshields and headlights!

Default headlights

I bought both taillights and headllights from partstrain and had them in 5 days. Both sets fit perfectly.HOWEVER, plug and play is not always the case.Especially when comverting to LED or lights with the halo.Let me know how you make out.
