That someone maybe me. Do they replace the headlight? I assume. How much? Do you have a item # for the Auction? Or can you post up a link to the auction? I'll try searching EBAY, but post it if you got it. Thanks

I do not mean to bring down all of your high hopes but aftermarket halogen projectors tend to be a downgrade from stock reflector setups. If you want to really increase light output do a hid projector retrofit into your headlight housing like I did. It can be done for about the same price as aftermarket headlight setups with a little elbow grease and time.

I used hid projectors that were taken out of a FX35 suv, and hella gen3 ballasts. The structure is all made from custom fiberglass that I molded.

The projector... or most of it.


Front end view...


Output from a single projector.


The output from these is just night and day from standard halogen headlights.

I agree with the last few post's. Please do a write up on this install, would be very helpful. The thing that caught my eye was the "ANGEL" or "HALO" effect, like a BMW head light. I always wanted to swap out my ZR2 head light's with the BMW's from a bone yard, never got to it. But love the look.

WOW! $300 bucks is a lot of cash for something that's going to take me a step backwords,or not be a performance increase like vierzwanzig said. I'll wait & check to see how much elbow grease it's gonna take to get it done.

I was posting this for those that are looking for a simple EASY swap ...... Like I said I don't really like the look of these , but some people might....... THERE ARE ALREADY THREADS ON DOING YOUR OWN RETROFIT ..... as far as simple goes , swapping in projectors MADE FOR THE FJ are as easy as it gets , just add an HID kit and you're good to go .... So say what you want , that WASN"T the point of this thread .....

Im sorry for hijacking your thread, and possibly offending you. The main point I wanted to get across was to inform people of the poor light output of these. I should also explain further that an hid kit can/will make things worse. In some (rare) cases you can get away with putting a hid capsule in a halogen projector but in most cases the focal point of the light will be way off and you will get a mildly/very distorted beam pattern.

*EDIT: you must be a member to view post... its worth the 30 seconds it takes to sign up.

This is a great thread with good information, and even shows a few pictures of someone who put a hid kit (OEM color temp) in his halogen projectors and got sufficient results.

*Note: The only truly legal color temp is 4100k-4300k and is the only temp used in OEM applications.

As for the write up... I would love to but I am really no good with words and if I were to write one up I would probably just confuse you and myself. If you are really interested in the subject... I highly recommend going to the university section of HiDPlanet.com :: Index . It will educate you in the ways of retrofitting and if you are still interested I can give you details that pretain only to the FJ.

If you already posted them , sweet .......... Like he said though , I don't get why people can't just start there own thread ...... I can apreciate the work he's done on his retrofit and even his very informed comments ...... I just don't get why people feel like they must impose there own opinions on a thread that wasn't about that ? Just start your own thread , do a write up and then others will even be able to find said write up, easier....... No biggie though ....... Nice retrofit all in all ....... I just know many on this site (or anywhere for that matter) can't or won't do an actual retrofit.......

Sorry if I'm coming off like an ass , I had a crappy day and my biggest pet peeve is going into a thread that I need to get info off of and having to sift thru pages and pages of people off the actual topic ....thats why I try to post any and all info on my first post , like pics , links and so on .........Not that this thread is by any means really informative :lol: nice job on your retro-fit though !!

Ouch. didn't mean to contribute to the thread hijacking. I like the retro fit though and will look into doing this in the future.

The ebay lights are cool but not my cup of tea. Any pics of an FJ with the Angel lights on? I think that might look a little funky.
