Stunning!!!!
If these look this good on camera then in person it should be a jaw dropper

I can also say I really liked how you mounted the ballast so all I had to do was run the harness and plug them in!! and go

It is hard to tell in the pictures but when you retro the fogs are you putting the stock lense back on? I assume so but your pictures are so good I do not see any glare haha.

Default StuckZipper - any chance you can re-post your install pics?

SZ - I was going back through the thread to check your install pics and they're gone...any chance you are able to re-post? Bil is shipping my lights this week and I wanted to take another look at your install for reference points...or if anyone else has install pics, please post.

Also, just an update that I also decided to go with switchback LEDs from v-leds.com for the turn signals. I have resistors to avoid LED hyper flash, and the idea is that they'll be on "white" when the lights are on and will switch to blinking amber when the turn signal is one. For me, I think it'll be a cleaner look with those lights by not seeing the amber glow in the lower bucket when the lights are off (because of the bulb color/reflector) and on (with the white light).

You can't have one without the other. Its kind of a all or nothing deal.

Unless you buy aftermarket housings with projectors in them specifically designed for halogen use...

Pictures of my housings from Bil, as promised.

The unboxing:

Look at how clean that looks! - Looks stock!

I hid the ballast on the side of the housing using 3/4" 3M double sided tape. Hides perfectly behind the weather flap!

Also, when done this way, you don't need 2 people to install them! Just plug the bulb in before you put it in the truck, plug in the ballast and projector...All done in one easy step!

I put the relay in the little cavity by the battery, in the radiator support. The wires being so short actually pays off here, the relay just wedges in there and can't move around. One less thing to find a hiding spot for!

My harness has a ground wire for each ballast (from TRS) - so I just used a self tapping screw on the frame directly behind the housings. Very simple, organized, hidden, and best of all, it took less than 25 minutes to do everything.

If anyone needs more pics of the install or where I installed what... I'll be happy to upload some. I'm kinda **** about things being symmetrical, so where "X" is installed on one side, it has to be in the same spot on the other... Not always easy, but in this instance it worked out beautifully!

THANKS BIL!

I will upload output shots tonight

Hope to one day get my own set of Bil's awesome work. Have to think of the perfect set that goes smoothly with my truck. But for now gotta save up the green backs.

you're the man SZ...thanks for re-posting! From my last convo with Bil, the lights will be sent out probably midweek so I should have them early next week. I'll have pics up as soon as I have them installed.

Good deal. Glad to help.

Now, I have 10 or so more, not too helpful, but would show more of the process I could upload. Lemme know if they're needed.
