Review & Install Video
What's going on guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and today I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the black projector headlights with halos fitting the 2009 through 2014 F-150 without HID lights. So in this video, I'm going to talk about who this kit's going to appeal to, what you should expect to be spending, and then we're going to take a quick look at what's entailed to get these onto your truck, where I'm gonna be giving these a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor. And I'll have a little bit more for you on that later.
So the black projector headlights with halos that I have here today should definitely appeal to any F-150 owner out there that's looking to ditch their stock or worn out factory headlights and get into something that's going to have a little bit more of a modern and aggressive flair that's going to bring the front end of your truck up to modern standards. So these headlights are sure to make a big and bold statement be it anywhere from your daily commute or to running some trails as you're going to be throwing that much more light with the installed projector. Not only that, you're going to be getting away with some really cool looking accent lighting as you're going to have that LED strip down here. But the main focal point of these headlights, and what I like the most, is going to be the use of halos here which are just going to set off the front end that much more effectively.
So taking a look at the construction and materials here, we're going to see that this setup primarily is going to be a black setup. So that means that you're not going to have that chrome housing. This is going to be that much more of a sleek and stealthy look. Again, these are going to be accented with LEDs right down here as well as having the halos up top which, in my opinion, is honestly going to be the main focal point. As if you're running around town with your daytime running lights on or just your standard parking lights, most if not all truck owners out there are going to tap into that parking light line just so that these are going to stick out that much more apparently. Now, one of the greater things about this kit that I really like is the fact that you are going to have a projector headlight right here. You will have a factory high beam style here, but this is essentially what you're paying for to get that look as well as throwing more light, something like you might find off an FX4 trimmed F-150.
So in terms of the pricing here, guys, you should expect to be spending about 430 bucks for this kit which, don't get me wrong, I know it's a little bit on the higher side but, again, this is definitely sure to turn heads with the LED accent lighting as well as the halos and the main projector here. I honestly think they're worth every penny.
So switching gears to the installation portion of the video, just like I had said up top, you're going to be looking at an incredibly easy and straightforward one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor to get these onto your truck. And the ease of install here is definitely a huge selling point for me as it should be for any '09 through '14 F-150 owner as you're really not looking at rocket science here. You're honestly just going to need a basic socket set, maybe a case of beer and a little bit of patience to throw these onto your rig. Now, to start, you're obviously going to need to pop your hood, break out that socket set, and then you're going to have to remove the three bolts holding your factory lights into place which can be found right up top then on the side. One thing I will mention is that if your factory headlights have been in there for quite some time, you're going to need to pull these out with a lot of force here. Don't be scared. Literally hulk them out as you're going to need to do so. Now once everything is out, simply get these back into place, bolt them down, and then you're going to start running your electrical lines. And that's going to give you the ability to either tap all of them into your parking switch or, if you wanted to take it a step further, you honestly could pick up an auxiliary switch to operate the LEDs and the halos independently. But, at the end of the day, it's really going to come down to you and how much work you want to put into this.
Just to wrap things up here are some final thoughts. If you're the '09 through '14 F-150 owner and you're really just not too thrilled with how bland your front end looks or you're just looking to get out of your worn factory headlights and into something that's going to look that much more modern and aggressive as well as throwing more light, I would definitely suggest checking these out for your truck.
