Do most people mount the LED halo on the outside of the shroud?

Just ordered the kit!! Is there a thread on installing them or does the kit come with good instructions?

Also, OP any idea when it should ship?

There's a couple of installation threads. The instructions with the kit are pretty generic and really don't cover much of anything.

The harness is clearly labeled, the only point of confusion is there is a pigtail flagged "Projector"... that plugs into the high/low solenoid... NOT the ballast (the connector is the same).

On the harness, the battery hot lead is about 2ft shorter than would make for a nice installation. Also, there are a couple of ring lug ground connectors at the ballast ends of the harness. Do yourself a favor and cut the ring lugs off, and solder a piece of 12ga wire to each one, long enough to get all the way back to the battery, and install another ring lug and ground them to the body ground next to the battery.

90% of problems with HID installations are traced to a bad ground. It's happened to me on 3 different installations.

I have the fx-r stage 3 and got the 9006 relay harness. Is this the wrong harness? Can I modify the input trigger easily or should I contact the retrofit source?

Rich, Is it possible to hardwire an H4 connector in place of the 9006 input trigger to get my truck up and running while I wait for the H4 relay from TRS?

It looks like I have 2 wires running into the trigger on the 9006 harness. Are these the same 2 wires that would be going into the H4 connector?

I guess it would be possible but you'd have to also cute your H4 harness, just google the pin layouts for both

Ok I figured it out. I just gotta wait until I get the h4 harness. The 9006 isn't compatible at all. Thanks guys.

The projector seems pretty close to the face and the housing is a lot smaller than the 2nd Gen. Plus, unless you are doing the FX-R, the 55w ballast is not advised. It WILL melt the H1, and there have been some reports of it burning the chrome off of the D2S reflector.

Auto manufacturers use 35w... good enough for The Ultimate Driving Machine, good enough for me.

The 9006 is a single-pair system. Unless it's a combination 9005/9006 harness for a set of four projectors, it's not going to work.
