That Lariat inner with the FX bezel is a great combo. Nice work!

That is a great combo for sure. I imagine that also shortens up the turn around on the lights too since there's no waiting for paint to cure. Everybody wins!

Going with Lariat inner bezels in FX heads is rare and circumstantial; I require a client who wants chrome Lariat heads with painted inner bezels so I can utilize the Lariat bezel.

Bil, you seem to be like the man to ask. What issues do us Canadians come across because of the DRL? How would we bypass it or have them work with projectors?

Running around right now with the 600 lumen floods and amber front end. Seems to impress the cops. But not for long.

Daylight Running: Vehicle in Park
Daylight Running: Vehicle in Drive

Nighttime Running: Vehicle in Park, Parking Lights On
Nighttime Running: Vehicle in Drive, with Fog Lights On. No Head Operation.

Great point bill. My apologies, I was wanting to ask the question about lining up, didn't give it thought when posting the pics. Sorry

Both lines should be completely horizontal.
24' from the wall. The left lower cutoff, left of the step down, should be 2" lower than the measurement of the center of the lens to the ground at the truck.

Why would you post pics of another retrofitter's product on my thread?
