Checked out the website, you definitely have me hooked, I'm going to have to start saving up, but essentially are these plug and play? Where do you put the ballast? I never really have took a hard look behind my headlights.

I'm booking into September now, if that gives you enough time, I can book you into my retrofit schedule. Yes, plug 'n play...very easy to install with the supplied wire harness. I mount the ballast on the actual headlights and it comes already connected to the bulbs. One less thing for the end user to do when they are being installed. Shoot me an email through my website if you want.

Make the first set the best set! We've got a lot of people to sell these too. Linemen all have money burning holes in their pockets!

Hence the strip and re-paint.

Well, I got my lights in last week and have had a bit of time getting accustomed to them...Time for a bit of feedback and a couple of pictures.

First off, I am extremely satisfied with the finished product and build quality; people rave about the quality of his work for good reason. Bil was helpful and attentive to the process as far as component and finish choices. Very simple installation process and Bil is readily available should you need any assistance.

The actual light output is such a marked improvement over the s****** halogen stock lights. I do 80% of my driving at night and these things pick up seemingly every reflective surface within a couple of hundred feet of the beam focus. Excellent cutoff as well; a very different experience to the H.I.D. uninitiated.

This is a modification that gets noticed. I get a lot of foot traffic past my place and I've already had a number of neighbors/friends ask me what the hell I did to my headlights (in a good way, lol). I had company over last night and my friend, who's owned three late-model BMWs, comment on the excellent light output and finished product quality.

The only drawback has been the failure of the XBA angel eyes. I knew this going in and sure enough, one of them was D.O.A. Hopefully they get the driver issue resolved and I can get them up and running in the near future.

If you're on the fence as to getting a set of Bil's retrofits, take the plunge and rest assured you'll be happy with your decision. No buyer's remorse here.

It's like they were made to perfectly suit your F150!!!! lol I certainly appreciate your positive comments lakers08.

TRS has indicated that they should have the new LED drivers by mid month. I am keeping my fingers crossed that their testing goes well. Once confirmed, I will get you fixed up so everyone can see those beautiful amber lights glowing.
