Default projector headlights: pros and cons

Hey guys. Wanting to hear from people who have projector style headlights on their trucks. Do you like them? Would you recomend them? I have heard it can narrow the low beams to where it is hard to see. Also, I will be running the sylvania silverstars in them, not hid's if that makes a difference. Thanks for the commets.

Thomas

dude they are awesome..i love mine..i got a set plus some HIDs on ebay and i love them. Even without the HIDs it helped so much. People on the oncoming lanes flash there brights at me all the time thinking that my brights are on. I got mine for $130 shipped and the HIDs for $80 shipped. My light output is awesome, way better than stock, Fitment is like OEM and seals are like OEM. The guy above must have gotten a bad set.
