Default DSG Headlight mod...

Just wondering... Has anyone done a DSG headlight mod? I'm getting another set of lights here soon, and am thinking about trying it with my setup... But I'd like to know if anyone has any done out there and what color truck its on..

Yeah, and I think I've seen red ones too on the member of RPS, Roush?... I think he had them done before he put on brazilians.

I think DSG might look good with my truck enough to do it!

Ew, I've seen them on silver trucks.. Black headlights. It looks tacky. Maybe the color I'm looking for is more of a graphite color, or light-ish graphite.

Tre...

Scottyboy Richardson in Pennsylvania(you know, RangerExtreme) had/has DSG headlights and corners....but on his bright ass red truck.

Fwiw, painted anything on your truck.....would not be good. BUT, you never know. Plus...you'll let me run DSG heads if I wanted right? That might look really good....DWB and DSG. I'm already wanting to do the Fx4 two-tone to it and hood paint in DSG.

DSG would sorta look like this ontop of SFM....




Those lights aren't black...08 Fx4 Fiddy's have dark grey headlights. It's what prompted Scotty to paint his DSG.

I'm thinking more along the lines of light graphite. Nothing dark, but not something that looks too close to chrome..
