When I went to check out it is saying back ordered for the projectors and for the elite hid system? Is this just because I put in the tacomaworld discount so they might have to wait to ship?

For those of you with 2012+ trucks, have the fixed the alignment washer yet or are you guys still having to cut it to make it right? Is it that difficult to get straight?

There's nothing wrong with the alignment washer--it's the stock flange being rotated slightly.

haha okay, so it has to be trimmed to account for our lame headlights?!

Also, I am really torn between the mini h1 and the d2s as I have had the mini h1, which I was really happy with and the fxr and for how easy the install is on those compared to the fxr I might go this route this time... is the d2s going to have as much color in the cutoff line as the h1 and is it going to give similar light output on the sides and foreground? I just like the plug of the d2s over the h1 but don't want any less in terms of performance

For the washer flange for D2S.
I typically put a line in the middle of the top tab by using a sharpie.
And use a filer to sand down material on the bowl.
When u get enough material away, line the washer to the straight line on the bowl to tell if it is center.

PS: I like trimming the BOWL to accommodate to the washer.
Because i feel that when u cut the washer, the cut might not be straight on the metal

Good thinking! I wouldn't have thought of doing it that way?

Easiest thing to do is grind down the tab on the washer, takes about to good sweeps with a file or one quick hit with the dremel tool

We don't do any retrofitting here, just provide parts for a DIY installation.

Generally, once lenses are damaged by UV rays, there's no returning it 100%. We recommend just picking up a replacement pair. Then you can likely run a Mini D2S projector or possibly even an FX-R.

I think this is slowing again because everyone has retrofits at this point. Any accuracy to that guess?
