Still don't have them in the site yet. Having an issue with the lenses not being far enough forward in the housing as compared for the FXR. This results in an more narrow beam pattern. You might want to grab the FXR kit as it is the only option for a little while longer.

Thanks for the reply. I can wait as I just picked up a set of oem ltz lights for $200 and it's waaaay too cold to install aka I dont want to start the heater and have to pull them back out again to swap to what i feel is a more reliable setup *LED over HID.

Probably not the right place, but I have a complete RX 350 retrofit kit for sale.  Morimoto HID kit, RX 350 projectors (with upgraded lenses), and Sierra bracket.

I’ve emailed the retrofit source (TRS) with an on going HID issue and have not heard back in 3 days. Any one on here work for them that can help me out?

Replaced what was left of the plastic FXR brackets with aluminum version. Replace reflector and dropped down to 35 watts.

I drew them up in solid works and my cousin machined them for me.

What's up gentlemen!!! Sooo happy to be apart of the club now! Just traded in my pos bmw x5 for a beautiful 2014 chevrolet silverado LTZ! Damn I love it! BUT like everyone here, hate the headlights lol I've been doing a ton of research and read so many pages here... 

 

One thing I have not seen much of is buying entire aftermarket headlight assemblies with halo style DRLs, so pretty and sexy, with pre-assembled HIDs. Example here.. 

https://www.protuninglab.com/hidxe14chsio1.html

 

This is in the description :

Most online seller also offers aftermarket headlights with HID kit. However, they do not offer pre-install HID combo because most headlights will require minor adjustment in order to fit HID light bulbs. At ProTuningLab, we offer pre-installed HID kit with the projector headlights. We will install the HID light bulb with the headlights and connect all wiring needed along with the HID ballast. When you receive the package, you simply install the headlights as instructed without worrying how to install or make adjustment with the HID system. 

 

I'm thinking of buying those (Spyder manufacturer) or one of the other headlight kits (really like this spec-d one below too). 

 

https://www.protuninglab.com/hidxe14chsi11.html

 

I know about the retrofit source and their entire HID Kit for like $200 I think? Then the same headlights I'm looking at are $350-$400 by themselves, so to me it makes sense to buy the pre-assembled one for around $400. Yes you have to buy the relay harness ($20) and maybe canbus? 

 

I'm looking to not only get HIDs but also replace the entire headlight assembly the includes some type of u-bar (halo-ish?) DRLs. 

 

Would love anyones opinion on this! And like I said, happy to be in the Chevy Silverado club!

Lol. Ahhh okay. Because I was going to be like dang I think someone 3d scanned my design and was reselling it. Lol. Although I figured if someone wanted to go through the hassle of machining them on a cnc they could have at it. Lol. I machined mine in my cnc one time and that was enough for me.

Not going to sell them, just wanted to never worry about that part again. First time drawing parts 8n solid works also, so things for me will get way more attention. It would be great to make things to sell, but for now any practice I can find.

I just spoke with Phil from fast headlights on the phone. I had no idea the projector retrofits actually come with the bulbs and ballasts.

 

Only $350 - 10% for forum members and you get an easy to install d2s 4.0 projector, ballasts, and bulbs.

 

All this time I thought you needed to buy the projector retrofit and then you buy the bulbs and ballast. I mean it’s $180 for the morimoto hid kit. For only $135 more you get a projector upgrade and hid kit. 

 

Only $315 to have top of the line headlight output and beam pattern. That’s definitely a no brainer.

I just want to put this out there for reference, because if you're like me you're always interested in spending more money up front on a quality product than to have issues later down the road. I will be going with the morimoto 4.0 setup from fastheadlights, but here are two videos that really show the quality and the differences for these and the rx350's which are considered some of the best retrofit projectors on the market. I think the pattern on the 4.0 is nicer and wider for me, and subsequent I will get going that route. Also, they are much cheaper. 

 

Also, phil, any issues with the thread-mounting mentioned in the second video? I assume we have a higher install height and plenty of adjustment. Just asking the pro!. Thanks

 

 

Installed on a tundra for reference... Man they are pretty!

Looks like I’m gonna try these in my Anzo head lights and go from there. They seem alright. I have the H1 bulbs in the Anzos so that’s why I’m trying these.
