Default Smoked Headlights Installed

Just thought I would share my headlight upgrade...
Before:


After:



After I give her a wash I will update the pics....Just wanted to share.. I like the look alot and once I add the HID kits to head and fog it will make up for the tint. I also did the fog/headlight mod. Makes a big diference.

Cant really tell my self picture is to far away.

I think that would be just asking for the cops to pull ya over regardless if you have HID lights

Not here in saskatchewan. But they are smoked headlights not covers.
My only concern is that I dont lose much light at night. If i do I will take em out... But for $60 its worth a try. I like the look alot.

I'm not a big fan. It reminds me of those headlight covers and I don't like those. But if you like it and the light output is ok then that's all that matters.

Hey that looks great on there. I really like the fender flares and panel guards.

i was wondering if anybody has done it to an edge by painting the bumper and flares and the other parts that are black on that lvl 2 to make it look like one. idk if this even made sense

fx4 l2 flares have those fake ass rivets in them, edge flares dont. i suppose you could paint them, but still you wouldnt have the FX4 sticker, or the L2 emblems on the doors.
