Default Headlight help.

I will be buying some new headlights soon, not sure what I want to go with,

I will be putting in projectors BUT, I don't know if I want to go with Blacked out or chrome,

I won't be paying these prices but this is the two options look at the site, and you will see both styles.

here is a pic of my truck, its a sand mica... or gold lol. Not sure on the rims yet either, but probably going with a black rim, or chrome.... chrome grill and what not will stay on the truck, and the bug deflector as well as the vent shades are all chrome as well...

Too much chrome for my tastes.

I like high contrast themes. Like my silver Z with 5% windows.

IMO that truck would look better with a black grille, color matched bumper, black lights, and other accessories in black (or charcoal)

Chrome looks better on dark colored vehicles.

see thats my thought as well, i think I might do a carbon fiber dip on the chrome ring that surrounds the grill. as well as the bug deflector and I might even do the same thing on the rims, and I will be getting the windows tinted! SOON.

This.

OP, if you're going to be doing projectors, please do it right, and retrofit them. The projector headlights you linked to use a cheap ass projector and you would probably get better light output with some silverstars in your stock housings. Honestly, retrofitting isn't that hard. I put a set of TSX projectors into my CL headlamps in like 2-3 days. Given, I was under a rather large time crunch, but that was a weekend's worth of work, and mounted them on the 3rd night after work. The biggest problem with doing a retro is cost. Yes, it's expensive. But, it is extremely worth it. It was easily the best mod I'd done to my Acura. With the projos, I can sit 20-30' behind a semi trailer and see my light in front of his truck. They're that bright and put out that much light. Then again, I used probably the 2nd best low beam projo available, so that makes quite a bit of difference.

HID's in factory halogen housings are worse than those junk projectors...
