Morimoto HID & XB Fog Projector review

Postby corvetteii [OP] » Apr 20 2017, 7:57pm

AWESOME! Morimoto is top notch in my book. Here's a link to a short video with the pictures: https://youtu.be/p7f_Un908MA I installed the 35W, 5500k HID Bulbs & XB Fog Projector's. It's nuts how much peripheral vision is enhanced with the Fog's, especially when used in conjunction with OEM halogens. It isn't as noticeable with the HID's installed but still noticeable.

Awesome. I just got the fog lights and hope to install them to night. Did you have to make any adjustments to the fogs or just install them? Looks great!

I definitely had to adjust them downward. I parked on the road in front of my house and walked out 30 feet or so in front of my truck to make sure they weren't blinding anyone. They are so bright you could use them as low beams if they were adjusted up too high lol!

Nice, I've got the end caps with fog light holes and the XB LED's sitting in my garage, just need to find the time to make a harness and get those bad boys on.

Fyi, my truck has the factory headlight projectors. I really want to retrofit quality Projectors in the future. Here are the pics from the video:

Just saying...if you were using them for how they should be used, they wouldn't be blinding anyone. But if you're going to drive around with them on at all times for the cool look, at least you did aim them down.

Like I said, that's why I adjusted them downward.

You won't regret spending the money on good projectors at all, the light output is stupid good. Your model truck is a breeze to retrofit on top of it all.

I really want to because the factory projectors SUCK. It would only be about $150 for the Mini-D2S 4.0 Projectors from TRS & another $40 for the brackets from Fastheadlights.com to mount them. I m hesitant to cut open my housings. I've heard I could pop apart the factory weather seal but I haven't found good info on that yet. The only projector retrofit I've came across, the guy used a Dremel and cut all the way around the plastic housing then rtv siliconed it back...Kinda wonky if u ask me.

Until those adapter plates became more available, that's how everyone did it. Including QP above. His look amazing, and he did a cut open and RTV seal. So it is possible, but if you can get those plates, by far that would be the easiest way to retrofit them.
