    I ran ls430 projector retrofit on my Tacoma X-Runner for a couple years which had amazing width and ton of foreground but no flicker (bling factor) I replaced the lens with tsx-r and had a nice blue cutoff and increased the output. I'm interested on memebers that are running the fx-r are they satisfied with the foreground light, did u space the bulb and hows the flicker (color band)? I know this projector has a mountian below the cutoff. Does this bother anyone?

    why not keep the ls430 and be different? with the clear lens and the spacer, you have a flicker similar to s2k projectors.

    The fx-r has a more focused beam, but you cant beat 165 degrees of width.

    To be honest I don't know a whole lot about the FXR's, I ended up paying yosh2000 to assembly my setup. He could probably answer your questions about mine better than I could but what exactly are you trying to find out?

    I love the output of mine

    Do these produce enough forground light( light on the road) factory or was spacing the bulb needed. Also hows the light flicker (color band, bling factor)?

    ^ that is w/ the included 1mm spacer TRS supplies, FYI.

    as seen in the hidplanet output shots, the FX-Rs have a little strip down the middle that i think will help w/ the trucks...i'll let you know for sure one day when i finally finish my set!
