    How do retrofit headlamps perform off-road? Do they hold up?

    OP, you going to sell your OEM ones after the swap? Let me know if you do as I need a set. Also, don't forget to post pics of your truck with the new lights on! Cheers.

    I am thinking about it..

    I havent been convinced that the retro's would stand up to harsh conditions.. I think i might go with something else.. HIDs or BiXenon??

    mine have stood up to some pretty beat paths. the mini H1's are secured with a really good sealing locking ring. No cutting needed.
