Retrofitted Headlights and Flexalite Electric Fan

For sale are a pair of retrofitted OEM headlights and Flexalite Electric fan with controls:



Headlights- $400 plus shipping

Electric fan- $200 plus shipping- Item has been sold locally



Headlight details:



Headlights were on my truck for about 6 months, they were brand new at time of retrofit. Retrofit involve using Mirimoto D2S projectors, bullet shrouds, shroud centric rings, painted gunmetal shrouds, and butyl headlight sealant. Headlights are in perfect condition and are fully sealed.



This combination includes both headlights, 2 brand new morimoto 5,000K D2S bulbs, 2 brand new ballasts, and D2S adapters. Please note, I do not have the harness to connect to the ballasts as I already had one with my new set-up. If you want the harness, you can either order one from the retrofit source, or include an additional $30 and I will include it in the package.



Flexalite Electric fan:



I was originally on orders to Fort Drum, New York when I purchased this fan. Unfortunately, I will not be using it any longer. I mounted this fan on my truck for 2 days, and took it off as my truck will be sitting in hot Fort Bliss, TX for a couple of months. I don't have any need for this now. I paid $375 originally; however, I am considering $225 for it now. Please see below pictures and interested, let me know.

Good catch, updated thread. The shrouds are called bullets.

Not to speak for the OP but those are 2005 - 2011 headlights. The 2012's are different.

Someone posted above, but I believe that these are aftermarket housings, not OEM, looks like an aftermarket since the TS lens is not yellow enough and the bezel is actually black. But could be OEM due to camera color shift and/ or if he BHLM'd an OEM set.

That lens changes color due to a bulb being in there.

OP says they're retrofitted OEM headlights.

I know, but the stock lens has a piss yellow color to it without an amber bulb behind it. Most of the aftermarkets actually have a clear TS lens. Pics look clear to me, so not sure. OP would need to answer.

Interesting, haven't actually seen a clear TS lens'd HL on a factory Tacoma.

Now, I did need to replace my HLs a few months ago, for some flakey reasons, but the OEM replacements (from the dealer, real toyota box :-) did have clear TS lens'.

I posted at that time, but just thought it was the replacements, not that real Tacomas actually had the clear lens' installed from the factory.

These are actually OEM 2005-2011 headlights. I painted the OEM shroud; furthermore, I retrofitted the Mirimoto D2S projector system into the headlight. I decided to paint the the bullet the same color as the OEM shroud to give it a nicer color tone.

I really loved this system; however, I wanted something different and I got another set of OEM headlights and went ahead and did the FXR retrofit. I don't have any use for these headlights anymore, and decided to place them up for sale.

I believe the price is decent as the headlights alone were like $400, and the Mirimoto D2S projector is $300 minus the harness.

I can work with lowering the price; however, only to interested buyers.
