That bulb looks like it is to into the reflector to far, is the bulb up by the lens. Most lights the bulb is back down in the cone of the reflector light is defused forward and out.

That looks like the base of the bulb, black plug is being reflected. It can be seen in the shot you have with the lens removed on the pass side head lamp.

Notice you can see 3 different reflections, from the back forward. First black plug is seen then the turn signal, the next reflection is the light, so about two thirds of what is being reflected is not head light. It can ever be seen in and on the drivers side. Maybe look over the instruction and verify the install, that bulb sure looks odd in its placement.

Are these dual beam hi/lo headlights? Couldn't find anything on the JCWhitney site.
Thanks,

Yes they are hi & low, they drop right in and use the same spade plug socket. You will be very pleased with the results, they are not fad lights, are very functional.

I also added a relay for the low and another for the high beam. I gained a full volt at the headlights. They went from yellow to white. They still don't focus properly but setting the high so oncomming cars don't flash you works pretty well.
