  1. Hey there Sorry I am just seeing your post now. I got your order so thank you for that.! I will answer your questions just the same though. 2.) The lenses optics are very similar. The FXR might have a bit on the 5.0 with width but honestly it is so minimal it isn't worth stressing over. As well, you should always weigh out the cost, performance and ease of install factors. The FXR and 5.0 are similar in cost. Performance is very similar. But the install (as already mentioned) with the 5.0 is 10 times easier than the FXR. In my opinion the scale tips tremendously in the favor of the 5.0 retrofit. Same goes for the Sierra. 3.) Yes. Some ask about getting matching HID bulbs for the high beams but it isn't necessary and isn't recommended. If anything I suggest to get the 2Stroke LED option, but again, not necessary. To be honest you would be fine without the factory high beam as the 5.0 is better anyway. Ha 4.) Adapters will take care of it all. You will retain full adjustment via the factory adjuster. 5.) As already mentioned. 2 inch drop over a 25 feet distance. Let me know if you have any other questions. Happy to help and your order is ready to roll out too just so you know. ;) Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  3. This is totally what it is. Morimoto is stupid for doing this. Lots of us dealers have bitched about this. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. Yes sir. Typically a distortion in the beam pattern is due to bulb position. Really nothing to go wrong with the projector typically. Issues with this type of retrofit are typically: Bulb put of position or rotated Bad ballast (doesnt fire) These issues are not "common", but when there is an issue it would tend to be one of the above. I feel yours is bulb position. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  5. When you move the bulb by hand does it make the light output look better. Like can you seem to get it in a spot that makes it look correct? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. Got the lenses back from Klearz and installed. Cant wait to see the headlights back in the truck. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. That passenger side really looks like a bulb alignment issue. Is this the D2S 5.0? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. Why do you need the caps? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. Pics of the internals for the nerds of the headlight world. Lol Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. Got the first set of 2019 half ton Silverado lights opened up today. Baked open. A bit harder than the previous generation but same process. Sending the orange markers to Klearz to get new clear ones made this week. Should look pretty sweet when done. Figured I would start a thread to show the progress. More pics to come Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. The bulb holders on the new 5.0 projectors are an improvement over the 4.0. The 4.0 was solid just a bit more of a hassle to get the bulb holders on and bulb in place. 5.0 is easier. You should have no jiggle at all. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  13. Thank you guys for the positive feedback and posting progress pics! The Hykux ballasts font require the typical relay harness because they have a lower (wider) voltage range for operation do therefore the direct 12 volt related power from the battery isn't needed in order to get them to fire. Diode Dynamics has a nice research article on 35 vs 55 watt (scroll down the page). https://www.diodedynamics.com/info/research/hid/hid-brightness.html#wattage In my experience the brightness of the 50 watt systems makes for a weird driving experience at night. It is so bright when on low beam that the dark area above the unlit zone seems almost pitch black. Your eyes cant make the transition between the two zones due to the extreme contrast. For me, it literally feels like only half the road is lit. Lit really bright, but not being able to see anything above the cutoff is scary. Again, my experience and much based on my own eyes and preference. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. Hyperflash help

    How many ohms are your resistors? Do you have two turn signal bulbs in your tails originally? If so you need a resistor for each bulb that you originally had. 4 incandescent bulbs = 4 resistors Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. We've sold quite a few of them and the feedback has all been positive. Much brighter than the 25 watt factory HIDs. Use gmforum_10% here https://www.fastheadlights.com/product-p/buy_45watt_d5s_hid.htm Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
