Finally got my wiper motor fixed on my 1999. So now that thing is 100% again I can put my 2002 into storage for the season. I will bring it back out next spring.

Damn, MN thread is dead. I'm going home today to help my dad put new halo headlights in his truck. It's a 2011 f250, I'm worried it might look a little ricey but we'll see. I'll take pics. Also gonna put LEDs in my HVAC while I'm there should turn out to be a damn good day. Now I just gotta get off work..

I'm not really a fan of halo headlights either. Stock lenses with a good set of bulbs or hid work best imo...

I grew up with incandescent headlights, so regular halogens work for me. In fact, HID's even when professionally installed in proper projector housings, and aimed correctly, still bother my eyes.
what really irritates me are people with blinding HID headlights AND fog lights.

Alright I didn't take pics but fuck it. They looked pretty cool not ricey but I agree stock lights with hids would be better. I just think the stock housing compliments the truck better. My dad was really iffy on if he liked them or not so we'll see.

If you're gonna get HIDs, get a projector housing. I hate people that get HIDs in a halogen housing, the light dispersion for HIDs blinds people even if you have it aimed all the way down. If you want brighter bulbs, get Sylvania Xtravisions. Then again this is just my opinion!

I don't have the factory fog lamps on my 1999, but I do have the factory fog lamps on my 2002. I installed some aftermarket bulbs on the 2002 that give it that HID look, and put out a little more brighter light. The 1999 has some really bright halogen bulbs in the stock housing. Even without foglamps I can see the road better in my 1999 than my 2002.
