  1. Custom Trail Boss headlights

    If anyone is interested I am looking for someone who wants to have their TrailBoss headlights fully customized. You would need to be able to be without your lights for about 2 weeks while Klearz made new clear lenses. While this is being done I would retrofit the headlights with some Morimoto D2S 5.0 projectors. If customer wants we can black out the chrome as well. Essentially whatever is wanted. Costs would only be parts and shipping. Parts would be discounted 30%. If anyone is interested then email me at [email protected] Just remember to be able to be without your truck for about 2 weeks. Maybe less, but be prepared for 2 weeks as it takes Klearz a little while to get the lenses created. Whoever does this would be the first to have a custom setup on a Trailboss Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. Unfortunately man. That looks like poor venting condensation. Also, it will take a while for the lights to stop doing that if they had a leak. You might need need to wait it out and allow thrn a week or two to go through heat cycles. This will eventually work out the condensation. Have you tried putting them in the oven at like 180 degrees? Let them dry out and it can help to reseat the lenses in the channel. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  3. Let's see a pic of the fogging? Unfortunately fogging over after washing is not uncommon. Water in them is not good though. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. Custom Trail Boss headlights

    https://www.fastheadlights.com/product-p/buy_hid_kit.htm Havent updated the product year but the new Chevy halogen headlights use the same bulbs as the previous generation. Just specify Chevy (any model) and we will get the correct kit sent out. This kit is great. Uses a Hylux ballast and Morimoto bulb. Plug n play other than getting a hole in your dust cap.

  6. Polarity is simply referring to positive and negative wires. You may have the positive wire in the negative. Just unplug and turn the plug 180 degrees. If it works you just had the polarity flipped. On a side note... Screw the Morimoto Elite setup guys. Just use the 35 watt 2A88 Hylux ballasts. No capacitor or relay needed. They do offer a 50watt setup but it requires a harness. In my opinion the 50 watt setup in the OEM projectors is a waste. It is going to burn up the bowls and still wont solve the problem of poor lighting. D2S 5.0 retrofit or just do a 35 watt HID upgrade. One or the other but dont waste money on the 50 watt setups in those OEM halogen projectors. Just my opinion. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  8. Morimoto HID bulbs (35 watt) and a Hylux ballast (pair). Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. Only issue with those kits (only speaking from experience in selling tons of them) is that when something doesnt work it is a total pain in the ass to diagnose. Is it one of the relays? Maybe a ground.... or perhaps a bad ingiter. But wait could it be the ballast? Hmmm, or one of a bunch of different connection points in the system perhaps? Oh crap, maybe it is a bad bulb! Lol. Obviously I am exaggerating a tad, but when you are on the seller/customer support end of it you really start trying to find a system that performs well, is easy to install or diagnose if not working and doesnt break the bank.

  10. https://www.fastheadlights.com/product-p/buy_hid_kit.htm This kit is much better than the Morimoto Elite kit. The Morimot kit requires a relay harness and to be honest the 35 watt igniter/ballast from Morimoto have been very unreliable. I stopped selling the Morimoto Elite system because I was going crazy with troubleshooting and processing warranty claims. The Hylux ballast is much simpler and has been far more reliable. Its asplug n play as it gets. You can also upgrade your fog lights to the Morimoto XBLED fog lights to improve output and beam distribution. Those are listed on the site above as well. They are also plug n play. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. I have had my Morimoto D2S 4.0 with Hylux ballasts installed in my 2014 Sierra for 3 years now. Same HID bulbs and ballasts. The projectors will last damn near forever especially if you use the 35 watt HID ballasts. Let me know if you have questions. We've sold 300+ kits for the Sierra lineup over the last few years.

  12. 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

  14. 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
  15. 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
