One thing to call out here though is doing a LED or HID projector retrofit is not as expensive or hard as you think. It cost me just over $400 and a weekend and the results were well worth it.
Fine on cost and I 100% agree it is a much better option, but tearing apart and potentially ruining my factory headlights is just not something myself, and I'm sure most others, are comfortable with or care to do. Also, it's not even that I want an easy solution. The solution I'm happy with just happens to be easy.

Did not want halogen "yellow" color bulbs. They look terrible on a cool new vehicle.

Yes, deliberately keeping oneís self centuries, if not millennia behind modern times is a sure fire way to be impressed at most anything!

Nobody ever said it was a good or safe idea to split your headlights. Thatís a crude and inexact science not to be attempted for the first time on a new car.

The only reason I could EVER see justifying that is if someone was downright OBSESSED with having projector headlights, and there was no aftermarket for your vehicle at all.

We should leave our trucks stock and never modify them for anything.
