Justin: If you're the owner of an '04 to '08 F150, and you prefer more of that modified look, well, then these black Dual Halo Projectors will certainly be for you. Now, the DOT rated headlights that we have here do feature an abundance of custom lighting, including the LED halos around the projectors, while the five amber LEDs towards the bottom function as a sort of very cool running light. Now, price point for the pair will be right in that mid to high hundred dollar range, while the install, according to the site, will be good for a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, about an hour or so to complete from start to finish, as we'll demonstrate later in the video.So, the world of aftermarket headlights is a rather diverse and expansive one, right, and does feature everything from stock appearing options, all the way down the line to something like this, which is about as wild and modified as you can get. And with that said, something like this is not always going to be for everyone. However, if you are a fan of these lights, and the styling, let's hang out for a bit and talk about what you can expect.First things first, these lights will convert your standard reflector style OE housing, or headlight, to a projector for the low beams, and the smaller circular reflector style for the high beam itself. Now, that projector is gonna produce a more focused beam of light, which in turn should help your nighttime visibility, as some of our customer reviews have pointed out. On top of that, the headlights do also include brand new bulbs for both your high and low beams, which have already been pre-installed for you here with the headlights.Well, aside from the standard lighting, you are also getting a ton of custom lighting with these headlights as well, including the halos, which do wrap around both your high and low beams. Now, the halos will illuminate whenever your parking lights or headlights have been switched on, and ultimately will provide you with a very unique look. Now, increasing that appearance even further will be the five amber LED running lights down here on the bottom, which will illuminate with those halos whenever they are switched on.Now, as for the actual housings themselves, well, you are getting a combination of the black ABS for the actual housing portion here, but more importantly, a crystal clear polycarbonate lens, which is something I always like to point out in this type of situation, because you're gonna be getting the appearance of that kind of dark, smoked, aggressive light, but without affecting your light output like you would be when using something with a smoke lens. So, very cool to differentiate between the two.Finally, guys, as a friendly reminder here, these lights have been both SAE and DOT certified, making them legal for use in all 50 states. But, now we wanna show you just how to get everything installed on your rig at home. So, without further ado, here is that detailed walkthrough, along with a quick tool breakdown.Man: Tools used for this install are: a small impact driver or ratchet, a 10-millimeter socket, a clip removal tool, wire strippers and crimpers, some wiring, and various connectors. So, the first step of this install is gonna be pop your hood open, and to remove a couple of clips and screws to get the headlight assemblies out, so that we can install our new ones. So, let's get started.So, there's one clip here at the top of the headlight that you need to remove to get the flap out of the way, so that you can get access to the bolts. I'm just gonna use a clip tool to pop that out. And now I have access to my bolts for my headlight. So, now, I'm just gonna use a 10-millimeter socket to remove the bolts that hold the headlights in. There's one at the top, and two on the side. With my hardware removed, I'm just gonna lift this tab here, and slide my headlight out. And now I can remove my light sockets. Now, ready for install.All right, so as you can see, there are four wires coming off the back of the headlight itself. And they are not polarity specific, so you can actually hook up any of the two together, and hook it up to power and ground without worrying about which is positive and which is negative. I'm just gonna splice these two wires together, and attach a male spade connector to the end of it. And I'll show you on the vehicle how I'm tapping into the running light circuit. And then once I have these crimped on, I can install these to the tap-in that we used on the car.All right, so, in order to install this new headlight with the halos and the light strip that comes with it, you're gonna have to tap into your headlight harness. And as you can see, this was already done on our vehicle. There's just two wires coming off of the power and ground wire for the corner marker light. And basically, what was done was the wires were cut, a pigtail was added, with a female spade connector, and then it was crimped back together with a heat shrink butt connector. And that should give you everything you need to tap into for your running lights and your halos on the new headlight assemblies.Now, before I can throw this headlight into the truck, the new headlight actually comes with all the bulbs and sockets that you need, so I'm gonna remove the bulb sockets, and then I can plug these into the new headlight assembly. All right, so now we're ready to install our new headlight. And like I said, the new headlights already come with the bulbs in sockets, so I'm just going to start making my connections, and all the plugs can only go into one spot, so you don't have to worry about mixing them up.And then I'll just take my spade connectors that I added earlier. And I can attach them to the wiretap ends that were added previously. Right there, that's good. And now we can install our new headlight into place. Now we can just reinstall our factory hardware and the clip, and we're all good to go.All right, now we're just gonna repeat the same exact process on the other side of the truck. And since our new headlights come with everything we need, I'm just gonna disconnect these light sockets and leave the bulbs in. Now I can splice my wires on the back of my new headlight assembly and add my spade connectors. Now we can just start making all the connections on the back of the headlight, like we did on the other side, matching up the connectors with their counterparts, and plugging everything in. Now we can just throw our headlight into place, and reinstall the factory hardware.And that's gonna wrap up this review and install of the Black Dual Halo Projector Headlights for your 2004 to 2008 F-150.
