Default Don't buy pro tuning lab!!!!!!!!

Ordered a pair of Pro Tuning Lab Projector Headlights for my 1998 Ford Ranger XLT. Install = Insanely Easy! Took them for a test drive tonight, couldn't see 10 feet in front of me.

Everybody do yourselves a favor and never purchase from Pro Tuning Lab!

couldn't see 10 feet because of the aim or brightness?

lolz...I think you got hosed. Those look like they are "projector simulators"

The only thing they show on is the halo ring. That bottom pic shows a halogen bulb next to the projector, that probably the headlight, the rest is for show.

The kit you bought came with halogen bulbs, the same as your stock lights and they do not belong in a projector housing. Yes, if you want projectors you should have opted for the HID's.

Just because its a projector, doesn't mean it's an HID projector.

There are a such thing as halogen projectors, you guys do realize that right?
