Update
I installed the ANZO lights last night
After a few adjustments;
-they are much better than the stock halogens by far.
-Not as bright white as the LEDS,
-I will be installing some clear bra on them because the lenses feel soft and cheap.
-the biggest complaint about the Anzos is the included H1 and H7 lamps are terrible so I ordered some good rated lamps and I will change them out.
-the second biggest complaint about the ANZOS is they fog up inside, time will tell but they came with a Chinese poorly translated to English explanation of why the units may fog up. The explanation says when the lamps heat up the fog will burn off.

They are brighter

I wish I could drop a grand on retrofits
.
I decided to try Anzos and get upgraded H1 and H7 lamps cuz all reports say Anzos come with junk bulbs.

I take it these are the reflector housings and not the 2013 projectors?

I didn't see a response on the other forum about if the lights are DOT approved or just compliant (may have missed it). If these (link) are the same lights that SouthEast Overland sells, then they are DOT approved and good to install without worry of getting a ticket. I'll be ordering a set from them next week when I get back in town.

In Louisiana it doesn't matter if complaint or DOT approved. You're legally not allowed to alter any lighting on your vehicle. But then again cops don't care if you install HID or LED in reflector housings and don't bother adjusting them lower so that it reduces glare to oncoming traffic.
