For the heads up on these - by far hands down, they have the best output and cutoff lines of every projector I've seen that can be retrofit. They do include a highbeam - its a magnetic system with a plate that raises up and down which remove the top of the cutoff line, very fast and very nice light output on them :-)

I have actually thought about putting projectors in the fog lights for my F150, but I imagine I would be hacking up some fog light housings trying to fit something in there. If I could fit some decent projectors in there and make it look decent I might actually be interested.
The headlights on my F150 sit pretty high as it is, I bet they are close to where yours sit. My headlights are aimed down a bit from the 'correct' measurements so they don't irritate other people.


So where are the pictures of the cutoff and light output? A lot of the cheapo ebay projects I've seen create a sharp cutoff but that is the easy part. The actually light output on them is generally fair at best, rather than a good even full light.

What about when your fogs flash after you lock or unlock your truck?

That's why I don't want HID's in my fogs, I don't think its good for them to jump on and off like that

Brian theres pics in wowmikes thread that he posted when he did his. And yeah I'd say our headlights are probably about the same height. Honestly mine are aimed high now, but I don't ride peoples asses when I drive and at lights and stuff I leave about a car length between me and the next car so it doesn't get in their mirrors. Unless they're a ricer, then I get on top of them lmao.

Thats only because of the "foglight mod". I asked the same thing a while ago and a few people told me that.

nah he won't mind....he's just been pretty busy the last few days so hasn't had time for pics. The link btm posted is the projectors Mike had, but i'm pretty sure Jake used "Eagle Eye" brand projectors

Keep in mind these were taken on an uneven driveway, I had an angle to my truck - the projected beam is 100% straight on to what a stock housing woudl look like for a projector.

that may be the kit that Jake used, not too sure...I know he had the choice of color on the ring, although I would suggest another color as his "red" ring appears somewhat "pink" in person

The problem with giving any ebay link, is the fact that it usually expires in a day or so, and yoru stuck looking for another link - you'll actually have to hop on Ebay and search it up.. "Angel Halo projection retrofit kit" or something along those lines.

The latest link that works as of now..
