Re: Anyone bought these headlights?

Not from that seller.

But I bought an aftermarket set of ebay for the same price for my 07......made by eagle eyes or angel eyes.

They fit like OEM and IMO, light up better.

On difference between them and the OEM ones on my 01 is the rigidity of the lens (and I only found that out trying to push and flex each one for some reason).

They both flex......the aftermarket ones are just easier to flex.

Re: Anyone bought these headlights?

Ok, but that seems weird that they flex. I guess I'm used to my stock headlights, they seem like they are a 1/4in thick.

I was told that these 2005 style headlights use the H13 bulbs, which is close in output and color to a true HID. Is this correct or do you have to buy a different harness and is the light output a lot better or just a little compared to the 2003 clear headlights?

I thought it was weird that they flexed, that's why I tried to flex my OEMs from Ford....and they flexed too.

They do use H13s, I used a dfuser harness to wire them up (plug and play with the 9007 pigtails from a 99-04 truck).

And yeah, IMO they do light up better than the clear 02-04 lights. Don't remember how much better.....haven't driven the 04 at night in over a year.
