Yeh they look cool they make them for the Titan now also. We have a couple people over at ClubTitan.org with them. Here is a link to the install and his impression of them. http://www.clubtitan.org/forums/showthread.php?t=15052
I don't think he was too impressed with light output at first but I think he finally got them adjusted properly and he is liking them.
I think they look cool but I would rewire the 3 small LED lights to blink with the turn signal instead of running with the headlights.

i like them alot. the only thing is, would they get water in them? alot of aftermarket headlights and taillight i see running around has some water in them. i hope that not the case with these.

projectors, angel eyes, black and cleared, i fell in love those would be on my 05 right now if i had it, those are sick!!

only some after market leak, ive seen a lot that doo but a lot that dont.
and its easy to fix, let them dry out and run a thin seal of caulk or something similar around where it comes apart and you will be good to go.

only thing i would do to those when i got them is stick em in my oven and pull em apart to take out that one little reflector! those look great thou someone needs to get them i want to see them !

they are nice. just note a few things:

- they take H1 bulbs and not our standard 9007s. the new housings come with bulbs but you the reviews are that they aren't that great. you either have to move to buying new halogen bulbs or upgrade to HIDs

- i read on the TUNFS forum that it is a pain in the butt to remove the headlights. from what i read, you can get 3 of the 4 screws out. the 4th is the worse because you pretty much have to remove the front bumper to get to it.

- DO NOT buy from any ebay listing that is from VERTEXRACING.COM or any 626-810-1699 (they have other ebay names but still the same company). they do not respond to emails and have very bad customer service. a few of us are still trying to resolve the taillight refund. i looked on ebay recently a and saw another company selling it. go with them if you do decide to purchase.

one last suggestion is to wait for a review on it. on the TUNFS forum, there is one guy (ubond007) that is installing it currently. you might want wait to see what his write up says.

here are the other companies that look like they are not affiliated with vertexracing:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-0...ewItemQQcategoryZ33710QQitemZ8067285093QQrdZ1

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-0...33710QQitemZ8066964378QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

but i cannot vouch for these companies (experience only with vertexracing). their feedback rating aint the greatest either. maybe most of these aftermarket accessory places are like that...

I'll check out the write up...I like the black housing version...The two ebay sellers I'll probably buy from are k2motors and speedfantasy.

Apparently there's a white and a blue LED version...I think I'll go with the white, just because I don't want any headaches with blue lights getting me tickets.

But I may be willing to buy this without reviews...I really like the look. I'll keep you all posted.

About the 4 screws, I can't believe you'd have to take the bumper off! That might make me rethink this...I don't want to spend all day just to change the headlights...

Some research if you're interested:

FYI, TUNFS board ubond007's threads...

Hmph... i'll be waiting, but i am really looking forward to the day someone makes a nice HID upgrade kit for our lights... maybe nissan will do it in the future with our trucks?

As for the lights themselves, they look look nice, but i think the black background would look kind of bad ona red truck, so i'd have to stick with the chrome background...

Damn, they look pretty cool. I'm leery about them holding up in the weather (every single aftermarket light I have bought gets moisture/water inside). I'll probably seal it all the way around with silicone or something. I would like it that much more if that orange reflector wasn't there too. . .

That's not bad! I just want to know about the install now...The whole removing the bumper thing is a big negative for me...
