Still happy with them? Got any pics of them installed? Any issues with adjustment?Well I have purchased both an original Ford headlight ($144) and TYC ($26) headlight in the Aero style with the 2002+ lens design that has a smooth lens vs the earlier model years fluted lens.
I was fully expecting to see a bit lesser quality in the TYC which would be completely understandable given the price difference of $118.
I am surprised to say that even with my trusty magnifying glass I cannot find anything superior in the quality or build of the Motorcraft. In fact, the TYC actually weighs slightly more. The molds are nearly identical. Inside the lens, the designs are identical. The seams where the clear lens meets the grey housing appears equally sealed for water tightness.
The only visual difference are the adjuster screws on the Ford are metal while the TYC are plastic.
The only test remaining is to see how the plastic lens on the aftermarket TYC holds up to UV light over a few years but up here at 8,300' I always treat my plastic with the Meguiars Plast-X Clear Plastic Protector or similar wax so I can't really do that UV test.
Bottom line, RT just saved me about $236 by suggesting the TYC brand from Rock Auto.
