upullit

Since your other one is useable, I'd get one from the local upullit or buy a used one online. If it needs refinishing, when you buy your clear coat, make sure it says it has UV protection and is designed for plastics, and it should last. Put a coat of it on your other lens for protection, too. Later, if you like, (and if you still have the truck), get a really nice set online.

Scored some used headlights locally. Got a good one for each side plus 4 parts headlights for 250bucks. Not bad if you ask me

That's damn good just clean/polish and get a cost of UV clear on them. Mine went from clear to milk jug opaque in 5 months when the UV coat came off

Yep, that's how it happens.

You can go the extra step of xpel film to protect the coating with the UV in it. That's what I did on mine and it has been great now for quite sometime. Though, I must admit, the truck spends a lot less of it's time outside than it used to.

Awww shucks! I found these at the yard today and picked them up. HID active with cornering. The passenger side I have spent about 15 minutes on with just sandpaper and some polish. I will throw the random orbital at it tomorrow.
