Ford custom projector headlights? Angel eyes? Halos? Blue light? What do all these terms mean? Let’s start with projector headlights. Projectors headlights originated in Germany about twenty years ago. It was technology taken from racing vehicles driven at night. Projector headlight technology started seeing the common roads on many upper-class vehicles. These high-end auto manufacturers wanted to produce a headlight that would focus the light directly in front of the car instead of on the sides of the road and into the sky which standard parabolic headlights do. It was important to have the maximum amount of light in front of the vehicle when traveling at speeds over 150 kilometers/hour. Shortly thereafter, Japan borrowed the projector headlight technology from Germany. Now, Ford projector headlights are used on most new vehicles (foreign and domestic) built today including many trucks and SUV’s. Ford projector headlights are becoming more mainstream opposed to the previous parabolic headlights used in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Again, the purpose of the projector headlight is to focus 100% of the beam of light in front of the vehicle instead of all over the highway…in areas where lighting isn’t really necessary.
Ford projector headlights will take the place of your existing OEM headlights. MyTightRide sells its headlights in complete sets (left and right side). And, the headlights come included with halogen bulbs and a wiring harness for a quick plug-n-play installation. Many of the aftermarket projector headlights will NOT use the same OEM bulb that the vehicle they’re being installed on uses. These bulbs are readily available from local auto parts stores if replacement is necessary. No need to replace the entire headlight housing if a bulb burns out. MyTightRide also carries aftermarket H.I.D. bulbs if you want to add a lot of brightness to your headlights. You can read more about H.I.D. kits if you check out our H.I.D. section.
