  • 2005 Sierra Projector Retrofit - RX-350/ FX-R/ Mini H1

    Hey guys,

    I am wanting to retrofit my sierra with oem denali projectors. Any thoughts on the RX-350 vs FX-R vs Mini H1? The RX-350 is a little more spendy, but is it worth the extra cost? Many people have put the minis in, but I want the best light I can get in the small housing. Both the RX-350 and FX-R would be a squeeze, but I don't mind cutting or taking my time. This will be my 3rd retrofit, but first one in the sierra. I want to buy this weekend over the 4th of July Sale from TRS.

    Any Comments or advice?

    Thanks!

    Hands down RX350. FX-Rs are nice but can't touch OEM 350s. MH1 doesn't even belong in the same sentence as the other two.

      Thanks, Looks like I'll be trying to squeeze the 2.5" FXR into the oem style denali headlight or putting the RX350 into the reflector style clear aftermarket headlight. TRS RX350s are OEM? Might also look into the square D2S, half the cost of the RX350 and I think they would look good in the square aftermarket housing.

        I agree. MMH1 is for rookies with no mistakes.

        I agree with HK. RX350 would be my choice over the FX-R in terms of output. FX-R is a great projector in its own for what it is.

        And you can make anything fit. I put an FX-R projector in my Durango. Half the headlight was removed in order to make it fit

          I believe you have to be careful on depth with the denali style lights. some have had issues. The reflector housings are a little more forgiving on depth. But even then I still had to heat and mold the windshield washer reservoir a little for my TL projectors

          Anything is a upgrade from the denali projectors though. Even the MH1 lol. Out of those options, I would go with the rx350 as well. I would have used them, but I caught a sweet deal on my TL's and wanted to challenge myself.

              Good thing is with the Denali style lights you don't need shrouds, they are built into the lights already.

                Yeah lol, you gonna try to get the RX350 in those?

                I got a set of these recently and was gonna see if I could fit the RX350 in 'em. I didn't like the halos or LEDs that come built-in so I'm not going to wire those up.

                    Nothing a "little" trimming of the core support can't fix lol. I'm happy with the mini h1s in them for now, not sure if I want to redo them or not.

                      Yeah lol, If those don't work I'll be back to another OEM reflector set. lol
