    Just a quick heads up. When I installed my pro series lights, the output was quite shitty. Heres a picture up against my garage door.20201124_175220.jpg
    And on a gravel road.

    As you can see, the cutoff is goofy, and there is a large darkspot. (At the time of the pic the lights weren't yet aimed)
    All I had to do was reseat the bulb properly in the projector. Easy fix, and only took a minute.

    The cutoff and output is now significantly better. Hopefully this weekend I'll have some led bulbs thrown in, to hopefully upgrade the output. In true dark, the output is definitely decent with these halogen bulbs, but I'm hoping to get even better.
    I know I could have just gone with an hid retrofit but I just wanted to try these out lol.

    Here's a picture of the output on a gravel road with leds20201128_193112.jpg
    Still haven't quite got them aimed. Haven't made my way to a nice perfectly level spot with a wall that I can sit far enough back from.

    I am just curious, are these on low or high beams? I circled areas that would make me upset. My halogens have way better light output and I can see on both sides of the road. I may be holding of on these and stick with what I have.

    Not very impressive for what they go for.

    Low beams. The high beam is the low beams with an extra bit of light definitely lights up the road far away, but pretty disappointing on that front. I have ditch lights because I've yet to have lights that really light up the ditch. Too be honest, where there isn't light is mostly hidden behind the A pillars anyways. I'm quite happy with the setup.

    Better than my retrofitted spyder lights. More usable light here than I had with 35 watt hids. They were a good set too not Chinese ebay junk. Only thing was the projectors I put into the spyder housing had a wider beam pattern. Otherwise, this is a significant improvement over the stock lights, spyder lights, and the depo lights I've had on my rig.
