I got these headlights in this past Thursday and I'll offer my initial thoughts here along with pictures. These lights are actually Spyder lights which wasn't in the Amazon description. Link here:
The box that came in on Thursday was huge. I underestimated how big these lights are.
1. The low/high beams are a single plug and play install (does not use turn-socket from OEM- uses the connector from OEM)
2. The turn/blinker light is plug and play (uses the bulb and turn-socket from OEM)
2. The LED strip/bar is not plug and play (See review below)
3. The low beam bulb is a PITA to replace
4. The high beam bulb is easier to replace
5. The build quality is good. Does not feel like a step down from OEM.
When I got these initially, I thought I would just have a professional install them when I realized it wasn't a simple plug/play install like the Amazon reviews state. The Spyder install video on the Carid link above shows a simple plug and play install, different from this video:
Based on the carid video, I decided to go ahead and try it. What is different about my spyder lights is while the high/low beams connect to a single connector and the turn/blinker light twists into its own hole like in the Spyder video on the carid site, my LED strip/bar has a hot (black) and a neutral (white) wire for it, which taps into the turn signal connector which I haven't done yet.
The youtube video isn't captioned well so I'm not sure which wires to tap into on the turn signal connector. It's a bit unclear so I have left the hot/neutral wires taped against the back of the lights for now while I research how to use a voltmeter to determine which wires to tap into.
The high beam lights are AWESOME. Extremely bright. The low beam lights are not adjusted right now so I can't see much with them. I was going to adjust those lights but it is pointless because my truck is going back to the shop on Wednesday to be leveled, and the 295/65/r20s are going on Thursday. The level adds 3", and the tires will add another 3" so I am going to wait until all that is done before adjusting the low beam lights.
It has down poured two times since I put the lights on, and no water has penetrated the seal. No fog/condescension as formed as well. So far, so good.
Are these lights worth $300? Yes and no. Yes for the looks and quality. No for the ease of quickly replacing the bulbs. The bulbs are much easier to replace on the OEM headlights. You just twist the high/low beam bulb out. Same with the turn/running signal light. On the Spyder lights, only the turn signal can twist out. The low beam is recessed into the housing about 2" making it difficult to retrieve the bulb. The high beam bulb is recessed about 1" into the housing, so a bit easier to get out. Both are secured by spring-loaded metal clip. I will take pictures of this when I figure out how to tap the turn signal light wires for the LED strip/bar.
