Somethings I would have done differently:

  • Not cheap Chinese lights. The OEM ones would have been worth the extra money honestly

Well worth the money!

Let me know what y'all think. If anybody has any questions just let me know. I'll try and answer them the best I can. :tmc:

1. It sucks that you had problems with the Chinese lights. Maybe you're too strong for them? :dunno: Gotta be gentle, brah.

2. I actually bought that exact same dremel kit from Lowe's when I did mine. :lol: That kit is sweet! I've used it for some crazy things.

3. Truck looks sweet with them! Nice job! Sucks about the rotation issue....be careful adjusting the bulb shield--that's harder than it looks. At least it was for mine. I had to split one of my lights back open to fix it, as the bulb didn't give me enough room to actually bend the shield. Just a warning to be careful. :thumbs:









4. To give you guys an idea of the improved light output....here is a before/after of mine in the same spot (lower half of image). It will show how much of a difference the retrofit projectors make. In the lower two pictures, the camera was set up on a tripod on manual mode, and no adjustments were made to the camera between the shots. Retrofits were probably the second best mod I've done for my truck (behind my bedcover).

Thanks Matt!

Yeah the lights have been a pain. The biggest complaint is that they came broken from EBAY. The one at least. The fogging issue is my biggest headache.

I'm gonna try the bulb shield first. Reason I haven't sold my old lights is so I can adjust them if need be. Can you bake them like usual? Or did you do less time or temp?
