Hey brotha. Just raise up that driver side a hair. I think the little squares are reflection off the oem chrome parts. I have the same on mine.

I'm about to pull the trigger on the RX 350 projectors for my Sierra. Anybody have any tips for install? Planning on using the bracket from the Fast Headlights.

 

Are y'all using 35W or 55W ballasts? Do I need the AMP > D2S straight adaptor?

If you buy the whole kit on our site we include the D2s to amp adapters. If you buy just the bracket then we suggest you get all the same parts we list in the bundle. I honestly don't think that 55w are necessary. Some people also have stated that the 55w was too bright and the contrast between above and below the cutoff line made it seem as though above the cutoff was pitch black. Not sure that makes sense how I worded it. Ha.

I just put in 6,500k HID kit from The Retro Fit Source that looks and performs great, their products are well built in my opinion and I also added the 5,500k LED smoked fog lights, easy OEM replacement and look great, my buddy has a 2014 AT and he has same setup but the 5,500k HID kit, we've decided the 6,500k matches the color of the fog lights dead on and looks great

I lost the rubber seal that goes around the cap that is build into the headlight assembly and now I have condescension in my headlight assembly. Would anyone know if by using "Butyl" as a substitute seal be the remedy to my problem?

Yes that will work but it will get sticky with the engine heat and to remove the cap to change bulbs will be a pain I would assume.

Hey guys, so I wanted to put new bulbs in my setup and when I went to install the drivers side bulb it fired up just fine but it was a bit too yellow for me. So I put the original back in and now my ballast screeches really loud and the drivers side wont fire up. The new ones won't either. I'm not sure what's going on. Could my DS2/AMP connector have gone bad? Any idea?

I've got some 6000k LED spot lights (to replace fog) and a 20" 6000k LED light bar for the front bumper coming.

 

I want to order 55w HID bulbs for both my LTZ projetors (low beam) -- What color temperature will match the 6000k LEDs best do you guys think? I was gonna get 6000K HID's... but I've read a lot of back-and-forth about what color seems to match best.

 

Let me know! Thanks :)

I've been debating on installing the RX350's in my Sierra. How much of an upgrade do you honestly feel they are in output compared to just using the 35 watt HID kit in the stock projectors?

RX350s in!

 

How'd the install go? Pretty straight forward?

 

Also, in the first and last picture are the lines above the actual projection of the headlights normal? I'm referring to the faint light display.
