Are the aftermarket headlights quality headlights?
 
New guy here...I've always been into modifying my vehicles and from previous experiences the aftermarket halo style have always looked more appealing than oem, but the quality has been inferior to oem...do any of you guys have these and is the quality there? Thanks!

Well what type of Jeep do you have? And what type of Halos are you talking about? The eBay ones? They look Hideous on a WK and only the Gen III look good on a WJ but not with the Halos just the Projectors itself IMO. Some people have done the AAC Halos and the Flashtech Halos themselves which look SICK!

I haven't looked around too much for the headlights..it is for the wk (pretty sure that is 06 jeep laredo??). I was hoping you guys could point me in the direction of quality aftermarket providers, not necessarily halos. I don't trust ebay lights just from previous experiences with other rides.

Well you definitely don't want to Rice it out. Maybe Rob or Alf(HemiBeast) could help you out. What are you trying to get out of the Headlights? Better vision?

Better vision for sure! Also looking to get something cleaner...like 100% clear no orange side lenses

Well you have a couple options. One for more vision are the 08' OEM Jeep Projectors but that includes other materials too like 08' Bumper, 08'Grille and 08'Header-panel,etc. There's a Thread on that. Scott and Fabian have done the conversion. If you don't want to do that you can get Stillen Headlamp Covers which cover up the Orange Side Lenses.

You can also seperate the stock lamps and paint them, add halos etc. etc. HID's would make a huge diffference and we have two of the best vendors there are for HID kits.

^^ agree with Paul. OEM projectors gives it a clean look with good light output.
Or take orig headlights, oven bake them open....remove amber plastic, install halo rings(LED or CCFL), and complete HID kit.

Afraid that apart from the OEM projectors there are no NICE alternative aftermarkets out there.
Good luck and let us now what you decided on.

Edit: Lol Scott....just saying the same and you beat me to the punch :P
