    FX retros, Blazer fog-light retro, JVC KW-NT30HD head unit, Pioneer 6X9's in front doors, Pioneer 6.5's in rear doors, two Pioneer 12" subs in sealed boxes, Sony X-Plod amp, Hidden Hitch trailer hitch, EGR window visors, two PIAA low-tone horns, Westin light bar with two 100-watt KC low profile driving lights.
    I just finished up my FX retro this weekend and I love the output of these lights! I wound up using the Orbit shrouds and leaving everything chrome, I like the look a lot. I purchased some of the OEM lights from Amazon for $92 a pair and they worked out great. No night shots yet but everyone already knows what the FX output looks like. I used TRS ballasts and bulbs. I also found a nice weather resistant fuse block. I installed an individual circuit for each ballast. Each ballast has its own fuse, relay, ground, etc (I have four, headlights and fogs). It is very unlikely I will loose all of my lights at once. You might notice my retro fogs too, the Blazers and the FX's both have excellent cut-offs and they just work great together!

    I am currently using the 6000K TRS bulbs, but I am going to get the Phillips soon.

    I finally got some night shots.

    Here is the Blazer fogs only. They do have the "Blazer smile" a bit, which is fixable but I am leaving it because I like it.
