    info posted by buzzardsgottaeat
    A lot of people get the mini (H1 or D2S) because they're easiest to install

    FX-Rs are better quality but require free hand cutting of your light housing and a slightly more difficult aiming/securing process.

    Blazers are for fogs, you have to cut/rig it up custom, no plug n play or bake n reseal there.

    H4 headlights
    H10 fogs (H11 for 2012s) are the sizes you need and the harness will be the H4/9003 iirc

    H1 has been deemed a little brighter while D2S more even output. Most go with the H1 simply because its brighter but don't consider other factors. Matt and the guys at TRS mostly favor the D2S and I also like to point out that the larger shrouds fill our headlights better than the mini H1 and there is a greater selection.

    3000k is yellowish and good for fogs for its ability to cut through adverse weather

    4300k is like sunlight or stock color headlights and has the highest lumen count (brightest) of the available options

    5000k will be whiter and is the highest TRS recommends.
    6000k is also very white with a tiny bit more blue

    Any higher temp is stupid because you lose light output and fatigue your eyes and others.

    I always say 4300k is the way to go but can see how white/5000k has an appeal

    The upside to a projector retrofit vs cheap hid bulbs in your stock light housing is mainly that it is higher quality and has a clean cut off line.

    I can't think of anything else off the top of my head but that should be a good starting point for anyone who wants to start researching these.

    please add your name to the most recent list.

    This is just for the retrofit kit itself. If you purchase a retrofit through me, I have it priced with the kit already.

    My question about these: When folks do the BHLM, they say it may suddenly become prone to water and condensation in the housing. Does the same go for this? Are mud puddles and water safe?

    If it involves opening the headlight and resealing it, then the answer to your question is yes. Yes it will become prone to ocndensation/fogging inside the housing.

    seal it properly and your ok. splash puddles and what not are ok.. i wouldnt go diving with ur truck.

    Mini D2S 3.0 has not been released. If you've read about it on HIDplanet - yes a revised version is being worked on. If it's an older post about a 3.0 - typo or error on the OPs info.
