Aftermarket headlights

Need to get new headlights for the XK and I found this pair in ebay made by Spyder

Any experience with this? or any other aftermarket headlight?

They look great. I'd go with them. The top of my headlights are starting to get that yellowish haze.

Yes you are right. If you remember I bought a Jeep Wrangler beginning of 2013 and it got all my attention and the Commander got neglected a bit .. I sold my Wrangler couple of months back and got a Nissan Armada as a family car and Commander is now my 4x4 machine and started to restore it and maintain it.

Have those headlights and they scatter light everywhere and not down the road as far as the oe lights do.

I ordered some from ebay but they have the chrome look inside like the OME and they worked great only thing is that the top part to access the bulbs is stuck on, you need to break the clips and you can reuse your original flap.

I have those headlights and I love them. Very nice assembly, especially for the price. The H4 bulbs that come in them are stupid bright too.

I just bought a pair of these head lights and I was wondering around how much time I'm looking at to install them myself. Anyone out there who has swapped out their headlights?

I'm about to install two brand new, genuine Mopar headlamp assemblies in ours. I'll no more after the weekend.

The labor time guide I have says 0.3 hours per side. That's the "warranty" pay, and that's generally stingy. I'd guess under an hour to do both, though. From what I saw, they don't look too difficult. It looks like all the fasteners are reachable because there's a lot of room in front of the core support. It should be possible without taking much (if anything) out of the engine compartment.

I'm not arguing, I'm just explaining why I'm correct.
