ATL, are you doing the quad setup? I'm real curious how that'll fit in our trucks. Remember the fit on the driver's side is tight with the wiper reservoir there. Just keep that in mind. Let me know when you get things underway, I want to follow along if you don't mind. I'm hoping to get a quad done by next winter, so I'm working on the plan now. I want to go with a better projector than the mini-h1's (they are nice but don't have the throw of some of the better/bigger projectors) but just don't know if anything else would fit in a quad setup. I want 4 lows, 4 highs, 55w fogs, and also hoping to get some HID off-road lights on the front by then. I can't have enough light....lol.

Baldd86: Can you post up a link to your how-to? I'd like to take a look at it.

If I was just doing lows again, I'd call Matt at TRS and see if he could track down some S2000 projectors. Or Lexus ls460 low-beam only. Nowadays, most are bi-xenon, so your options for a single-beam are limited.

Thank you, sir. :Handshake:

Are those OEM headlights or aftermarket that you used?

I used oem headlights, I just cleared them. I also have some after markets as a back up, that I plan to do a quad set up in the future. Not right away maybe a year or two from now.
