    Nice work!

    I gotta ask, why does that FJ have an Alaska front plate and a Georgia rear plate? :confused:

    Also, what was your old setup? Never seen anything like that before and although they look like LED's, you said they were something else in another thread.

    My girlfriend is from Alaska and rocks one on her truck (which has the same projectors). Note mine is actually from 1974 and is brand new (NOS).

    The old setup is actually Infinti Q45 HID projectors. That retro is for sale: http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/want-sell-fj-related-items/165274-q45-retrofit.html

    Yeah, I gots boost
    How were you able to keep the weight of that 460 from wobbling when you hit bumps and such? That is a problem with a lot of Tacoma FX-R retros that no one seems to address. This latest one I am running I built in a system to help support the bowl, but it still isn't perfect nor is it complete.

    So I can trade in my XBAR and up to a new 10w bar right?

    I didn't build a frame for it or anything, but the LS460 projector seats against the reflector snugly and then I added about 3oz of JB Weld on each and 2oz of Steel Stik on each, so it's plenty.

    Yes, but the trade in value is all of about $50. ;)
