    UPDATE: 11/17/2014

    Big news coming soon! Be on the look out for a new thread.

    FYI I am now doing this full time! I'm looking to fill slots for the first week of December. Delivery by December 7. Get your retrofit in time for Christmas!


    UPDATE: 7/18/2014
    I will be revamping the core exchange process. I've gotten too many headlight cores back in poor condition or ones that have been damaged during removal.

    I will be selling complete sets from now on only. Headlight buy back will depend on condition. Anything with scratches or damage of any kind will not be accepted.


    Here is the best part for you guys with 2012-2013 headlights that don't want any downtime, I always have a set of like new OEM 2012-2013 headlights I use as a core to start. That means you will not need to have your truck down for 3-4 days while waiting for a retrofit to get done. When you receive your retrofit, you return your untouched OEM headlights back to me. You are responsible for shipping both ways. Any questions, feel free to ask further.

    2005-2011 guys, same applies to you!

    If you are local, you can choose to bring me your OEM lights and you can use a set I have as spares. Up to you.

    If you want new headlights, I can supply those as well. Pricing below.

    I am an authorized TRS distributor and I purchase all my parts from them direct. All warranties apply same as if you purchased from them directly. (5 year warranty)

    FAQ


    Q. Is there a warranty?

    A. Yes. I offer a six month warranty on workmanship. TRS components follow the TRS warranty period. For example, 5Five Ballasts carry a 24 month warranty. 3Five ballasts carry a 60 month warranty. Etc... No hassle warranty. Shipping cost will be taken care of by TRS for U.S. transactions. For owners outside the U.S., you will be responsible for the shipping cost per TRS.

    The cost of shipping the headlight(s) to to me is the original owner's responsibility. I will be responsible for the cost of returning the warrantied headlight(s) to the original owner within the U.S. Sorry, if you are outside the U.S., you pay shipping both ways. This warranty is NOT transferrable. Any modifications and/or tampering of headlights will void the warranty.



    Q. How hard is it to install the headlights and wire harness once I receive them?

    A. If you have a slight bit of mechanical skills, then the installation will not be difficult. The wire harness is plug 'n play, no splicing of the OEM harness is required (unless your lights are equipped with LED Angel Eyes). The new, retrofitted headlight bolts up the same way your old one was removed. Wire harness instructions are included with your shipped headlights as well as online.
    http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pdf/trs_tech/Bi-Xenon MotoControl Relay Harness.pdf

    The OEM headlight aiming mechanism remains fully functional. After your retrofitted headlights are installed, some fine tuning will be required utilizing the OEM adjusters. Fine tuning is defined as matching both the left and right cut-off so that they are level with each other. As a rule of thumb, I recommend aligning the height of the cut-off to be horizontal with the upper trunk line of the average sedan.

    Q. Where can I learn more about retrofitting, projectors and HID bulbs?

    A. The Retrofit Source (TRS) has a tremendous amount of online material to enhance your retrofitting knowledge.
    http://www.theretrofitsource.com/trs_tech.php

    Q. What's the difference between the bulb colors?

    A. Kelvin Ratings: 3000K - Has a golden yellow output perfect for use in fog lights. The yellow light penetrates through snow, rain, and fog more effectively than white or blue light. 4300K - Has a slightly off-white output similar to that of sunlight. Most cars that come equipped with HID headlights from the factory use 4300K bulbs. If you want the most usable light, 4300K is the Kelvin rating for you. 5000K - A pure white output, no tinge of yellow, and no tinge of blue. 6000K+ As you move into the higher kelvin ratings, your light output will appear more bluish-purple in hue, but the bulbs won't be physically as bright. I do not offer 6000k bulbs. As HID bulbs age, they go through what is known as "color-shift". When the bulbs are brand new, the output is whitish-yellow and as physically bright as it will ever be. As the bulbs age with use, their output turns more pure white/bluish and also starts to dim a bit. That's why cars with factory 4300K bulbs that are 5+ years old look like they're running 5000K or higher bulbs.

    Hmm those headlights look familiar... Most impressive product, great attention to detail and meticulous workmanship. I'm very particular when it comes to modifying my truck and these are outstanding; nothing but thumbs up. The sale and install was expeditious which made my life simple.

    +REP for sure

    Yes completely possible. TYC (aftermarket OEM) style lights are $300 a set.
    OEM Toyota lights are $500 a set. It can get pricey for a full set of brand new lights but it's worth it when you see the output.

    So it is $600 if we send you our headlights, but $1100 if you get a new set of OEM?

    Yes. Brand new OEM headlights are $500 from the dealership. Not cheap at all.

    I could source a used set for 2005-2011 for $80 locally that are in excellent condition.

    My apologies for sounding stupid here but how do the retro lights compare to the standard OEMs? Are they brighter? Does the BHLM affect the effectiveness of the headlights?

    No stupid questions here. The retrofit lights are far superior to OEM halogen lights. Think OEM BMW or Audi headlights with regard to how bright they are. Intense, white light with a nice clean cutoff and no glare.

    As for BHLM, it won't affect output at all. It's all for looks.
