Really? Because I am waiting to get their new ballast and some 6k morimoto bulbs (possibly 5k if I can do the prism mod).

Because those are crap and no where near what the output is on the retrofits! Don't waste your money on those and instead use that money and put it towards a retrofit from TRS! You WILL NOT regret it, trust me!

they have so many doo dads, extra wiring, and wiring gizmos that it's a pain. gotta cut the stock wiring apart to splice in to their lights, bolt a bracket on, and their adjust ability looks way worse than stock headlights.

And if you literally spend the extra $150 more you get nice (though cheap and not on the level of say s2k or FX projector) projector retrofit with an HID kit and if you get the better bulbs it's going to be night and day difference... Plus those headlights look like ass.. reminds me of what I should be seeing on a riced out car.

IE: Your picture:




This is what mine looks like.

Notice the gap from the shroud to the base of the reflector lense... yours is flush.



Here is my lense:



I can't shut it at all, the shroud is sticking too far out? How did you get it so far back into the housing?

Back:


inside again:



ANY help you can throw my way I would really appreacate it. I got these shrouds because I love your setup!

Thanks so much,

question about the kit you bought, was your truck equipped with drl's when it was stock? does the kit from trs come with a capacitor wired in to the drl circuit to compensate for the pulse width modulation? or is that something you have to add on yourself?

Default Re: Finally Bit the Projector Bullet

question for btm757. when you mounted the projector into the housing, about how much room did you have left between the tip of the lense and the actual lense of the headlight?

i want to do this myself but i want to use H1 projectors which are slightly longer. trying to get an idea of if im going to run into fitment issues. d2s projectors are 125mm long and the H1's are 136mm.
