I'm looking to replace the headlamp assemblies. Condensation and yellowing, figure it's just easier to replace. So far I've seen TYC, Doorman, Depo and Evan-Fischer brands. Any recommendations?

Thanks.

I paid $60 for a set for my '02 Ranger in 2017 if that helps. Clearly I did not spend too much and they have been fine.

Now the best thing I did was to install Hella 80W/100W bulbs. I know these are supposed to be for off road service only BUT they surely do help for night driving.

Do you happen to remember the brand?

My credo
Why should I pay someone else to screw it up when I can screw it up myself for free?
I bought a set of TYC headlights and fogs complete w/ bulbs for my 04 last year from RA for pretty cheap. I am very pleased with them and the light pattern was spot on. I gave up on trying to polish out the damage they were so pitted and chipped. I have read some of the other brands sold through RA aren't really up to OEM quality though.

I got mine off of ebay but unfortunately did not record the brand.

What's the worst that could happen?
I paid $25 for a pair of original assemblies at the pull yard - in very good condition - if that's an option for you.
