Good Evening! I'm thinking of installing aftermarket headlight assemblies such as the ones form street trendsstreet trends. I heard these work much better with LEDs and HIDs. What should I do about the ugly taillights? Should I take them apart to restore them, or do you think just a sand down and clear coat would do the trick for them. ThankSS!

There are a couple of lens repair kits. My brother used one, but had to cover it overnight because the fluid takes forever to dry/cure, and dew will mess it up. It did a really nice job. You can also sand and clearcoat, but be careful, because I have a set that crazes every time I try to clearcoat it.

I have a set of aftermarket headlights on one of my wagons and use LEDs in both. The LEDs make either of them have much brighter output. The OEM units are just fine. If the front lenses are foggy, the same treatment for the rears will work on the fronts.

Nice, I encountered the same problem but I bought a new light cover from 4wheelonline to replace the one in the rear.

I think so - even the tinted ones. These have casper shields that make the light cutoff much better.
