info posted by buzzardsgottaeat
A lot of people get the mini (H1 or D2S) because they're easiest to install

FX-Rs are better quality but require free hand cutting of your light housing and a slightly more difficult aiming/securing process.

Blazers are for fogs, you have to cut/rig it up custom, no plug n play or bake n reseal there.

H4 headlights
H10 fogs (H11 for 2012s) are the sizes you need and the harness will be the H4/9003 iirc

H1 has been deemed a little brighter while D2S more even output. Most go with the H1 simply because its brighter but don't consider other factors. Matt and the guys at TRS mostly favor the D2S and I also like to point out that the larger shrouds fill our headlights better than the mini H1 and there is a greater selection.

3000k is yellowish and good for fogs for its ability to cut through adverse weather

4300k is like sunlight or stock color headlights and has the highest lumen count (brightest) of the available options

5000k will be whiter and is the highest TRS recommends.
6000k is also very white with a tiny bit more blue

Any higher temp is stupid because you lose light output and fatigue your eyes and others.

I always say 4300k is the way to go but can see how white/5000k has an appeal

The upside to a projector retrofit vs cheap hid bulbs in your stock light housing is mainly that it is higher quality and has a clean cut off line.

I can't think of anything else off the top of my head but that should be a good starting point for anyone who wants to start researching these.

please add your name to the most recent list.

Subbed, but I'll probably have to wait for the next since I'm sure 10 will fill up this month.

For those asking about the blazer fog kit, it's discontinued from what I've been told, TRS will be offering what's called a matchbox projector that's the solution for those of us who'd like a fog light retro. Should be more info on it later this month. The manufacturer literally broke the mold and is is currently re-fabbing it.

Yes please let me know the parts you need in detail exactly as if you were checking out on the TRS website.

Payment is made to me via PayPal. Total will be the same as on TRS (minus 25% and free shipping).

I take the list of 10+ people and place the orders to TRS, they will drop ship. I cannot place an order until 10 or more people pay.

Same as the H1.

No harder than doing the Black Headlight Mod.

The first two threads really cover you.
The D2S and H1 are both the same procedure. The projector housings replace the stock bulb. You just need to open up the headlight housings and install them.

The FX-R are more involved and are going to take some trial and error getting them aimed properly before locking everything down and sealing up the housings.
I'm very happy with my D2S conversion.

It's not bad at all.

It's nice if you have a spare set of headlights. I bought a new set from Amazon for $160 because the lights in my '08 were getting pretty hazy.
If you don't have an extra set, plan on the truck being down for a weekend since you'll have to wait for the paint to fully cure and offgas before you can close the housings up and seal them.

Other than that, I did the install and wiring in about 2 hours.

Be sure to study your state laws and the laws of states you travel to before using white or amber.
Green is often reserved for volunteer fire, sometimes forestry.
