I love your work, I am interested in few things. I have a 2013 with the stock HIDs.

First of all have you ever done LED tail lights?

Then these questions:

- What is the cost to retrofit newer HID projectors in the HID F150 housings?

- Would you recommend the FXR or EVO? I am really aiming to improve my cutoff and low beam quality over stock than the high beam, my stock high beam is fine.

- What is the cost (and can you) for putting just small HID projectors in the fogs? No Angel eyes or anything fancy.

DOYAM....thanxs for the compliment.

Only headlights, sorry.

bilinvic Retrofits will only use bilinvic supplied NEW OEM HID headlights for retrofitting. I would suggest that you keep the originals as spares or sell them.

Only EVOX-R projectors will work with the OEM HID headlights...which is a good thing because they are top performing projectors. The cut-off will be very defined and the low beams will be exceptional, especially when combined with Osram CBI HID 5k Bulbs. As far as I'm concerned, the EVOX-R high beams are the best I have ever seen.

With the fog lights, I use LED projectors. When you have retrofitted headlights, the fog lights become more cosmetic because the heads performance is that good!

My website will have all the costs and options. Feel free to contact me via my website if you have more questions.

Bil

You know, I never thought of that combination - using the black FX head with the chrome bucket (which I did want to keep the bucket chrome).... I like it!! If only I was a photoshop wizard, lol..

Default Possible or not

Is it possible to get the amber rings to work as switchbacks, and get them to sync with the blinker?

That could be done pretty easily, at least having them function as turn signals. Not sure about the switch back part. In fact you could do it yourself when you wire it up to the truck. I have a pair of amber rings installed in the front turn signal housings that operate as both running lights and turn signals.

I do not know if Bil would recommend using the rings behind the shroud for that purpose. One problem may be that unless your buckets are chrome, then you might not see the turn signals from all angles. Were you still going to keep the front facing bulbs in the turn signal housings?

Don't mean to be speaking for Bil, just on what might be possible. Looking forward to my retro from Bil soon .
