Upgrading crappy Ranger headlights
2011 Ranger Sport here. Am I the only one that thinks the stock headlights are horrible?
After all kinds of web searching and taking into account how many of these truck are out there, I'm kinda shocked that there isn't someone selling a decent upgrade, including an option for fully built quality HID aftermarket projectors.
I'd go for a simple HID retrofit but I'm concerned about glare. But I think that's dependent on the individual vehicle's reflector design. Has anyone done such a retrofit and then checked to make sure the glare is "acceptable"?
I'm assuming it's the same problem with LED retrofits into the stock reflector.
I was considering the Spyder/Anzo etc plug and plays, but there seem to be a lot of quality issues and it's hard to tell if they're even HID (vs crappy halogen projectors).
I've done a HID projector retrofit with the Morimoto Mini H1 (great little unit), so it's not out of the question, but I really really hated the baking part. I also thought there would be a decent online blow-by-blow projector installation available; but no.
What have you guys done? Any suggestions?
