All of the photoshopping in the world won't give an accurate display of how it would fit until you get exact measurements from multiple angles, and do the same on the mx6, and make sure you keep everything to scale.

Until then - it can look as pretty as ever, but still be impossible becauseof the amount of metal work you'd have to do to get them to fit, or because the sizes inthe PS weren't to scale.

Pick one up - you can probably find one for next to nothign, and then pop your hood and try it out.

FWIW though - my brother used to have one of those models... the lights look okay, but they suck at lighting up the road. the beam pattern is all stupid, and they throw very little light where you would actually want it. At best you can use the skeleton of one of these lights as a good donor for an attractive conversion to HIR or projectors.

94 mx6 - you name it - I did it, came up with it, tried it and rejected it, trapped 108mph with it, or just plain still have it. **Now in the caring hands of Chef**

seems to me that the curve of the dodge lights is more pronounced than the mx6...

The headlights are from a older (later 1990s) Chrysler town and country.

That caravan looks angry and I really doubt those would fit an mx6.
