    Best Aftermarket Headlights n Tailights ?

    I tried a search but most threads on this subject were a decade or more old, not really on the cutting edge.

    I'm wanting to buy a set of ultra high quality black headlights and tailights for my '07 SRT but don't know squat about headlights or which brands are good so figured I'd look here for some guidance.

    From what I know(think) unless I'm outdated is that projectors are the way to go?, I also want lights that have halos.

    Feel free to post pics of your cool lights!

    I bought black housing Depo brand aftermarket OEM replicas and then put it 4 morimoto projectors. It rocks big time. Probably done need 4, two would be fine. Ur I wanted the high beams as well. I got the bmw style housings with the the halos.
    Can't find a pic on the phone bc I have several thousand pics to sort through.

    Thanks Brian but I'm kinda old and would have to hire someone to put it together so I'm looking for something completely finished from the factory with halos/projectors already installed.

    Antonn, let me check with some of my vendors. I have an auto accessories business and I'll see what they have plug and play for you.

    Here's the best option out there for plug and play. I sell these to my body shop customers bc we never have moisture issues and they'll take care of any issues if there are any. Typically you'll want to upgrade the bulb for greater output but there are some safety concerns depending on how hot the bulbs get and the available space within the headlights. I can reach out to my sales rep if you'd be interested in getting this setup. I can ha e it drop shipped as well to you I think. Will have to check on that as well. I'd be glad to help you out.

    There are many many configurations available. carID is a great place to start because they carry pretty well all brands. Over the years Spec D, Spyder and Oracle have been OK quality-wise...

    Antonn they are Anzo brand, I've been dealing with them and the other major players for the past 17 years and I can tell you I've had problems with leaks\moistuee in all the other brands. They also have a 1 year warranty where the others are shorter. Some of the other brands actually copy Anzo's stuff. My buddy has some Spyder ones and they're ok. The light projection wasn't as good. As the OEM ones in his tacoma but they look cool and that's really the crux of the matter. Anzoz are better quality but you may like the styling of the other ones. Get what you like and then for sure black silicone the lense\housing area and get some air breathers from morimoto to keep the moisture buildup in check. Then get the best LED bulbs from headlight revolution.com. At the least you'll want to get some LEDs that the housing\stem is adjustable so that you can rotate the LEDs to hit off the reflectors the best. Keep in mind that our cars use separate low and high bulbs and with the aftermarket headlights the low beam may be the projector but the high beam might be old school reflector. Best thing is to call them after you get your lights to get the best and safest bang for your buck.
    Let me know if you need any help.

    Just so you know...
    The stock housings with good led bulbs work excellent with very good cutoff lines, Are bright as hell and nobody flashes you.

    If you send me a pic of your '69 Cuda I will give them to you.

    They're in fine structural shape but plastic glass is clouded and feels rough, maybe pitted

    I have been told that different years have different OEM reflectors in the housings and the 2006 headlight is good with LED.
    Anybody know this to be true?

    Thanks for the offer, but I'm thinking about looking at the dot coms mentioned above and just buy something new. They are for the front facia of a Charger facia / grille that I have (with push bar) that I'm making into a wall hanging for my garage wall. I will paint it Midnight Blue like the police car fleet I use to manage. It will have full flashing LEDs and "wig wag" headlights on it. Thinking about rigging a siren / speaker into it with a resister to mute it a bit. Should be a cool conversation piece. I'm retired now, but that Police gig was the best and most meaningful job I ever had. I miss "the guys" quite a bit and some stop by my home when the garage door is open. They'll get a kick outa my wall hanging.

    The pics I have of the Cuda are primered body; Hellcrate engine on a stand, upside down with the front suspension cradle bolted to it and IHI blower up on the bench. Dana 60 w/Baer brakes on a dolly under another bench; Tremec TKO under another bench. It's chaos in the garage for a while till my house reno is finished at end of the year. I will be finally getting back on my Cuda in January. Remind me in February for a picture and I'll get you some pics.
