    yep. a bunch of us are running retrofitted projectors, and RTS is a huge supporter of TW (they have a group buy going on right now, actually)

    install is pretty simple. take the lights off the truck, heat them up a little/open the housing, slide the projectors in, heat again/close the housing, and youre done!

    projectors are 11,000% better than stock lighting. Scientific fact.

    edit:

    RTS group buy link:

    edit 2 :

    if you get the D2S or H1 kits, there isnt even any cutting involved. just plug and play

    pretty easy to do....I did them on ebay housings and had to fabricate mounting plates but that's about it.

    [​IMG]

    If your doing them in to your stock housings....even easier, so I've heard.....I may buy another set and put them into my stocks and then sell those.....maybe

    Mine took 4 days. FX-R with Gatling shrouds and morimoto ballasts. Did a retro for another member who is a friend and he has the Minis that only took a few hours to install. Call Matt at The retrofit source.
