  • Nissan Navara D40/Frontier Retrofit

    hey guys! today its a lovely morning since i got my package from TRS!

    Mini D2S 3.0
    Osram CBI

    and got 2 shrouds ..ocular and iris because i coudnt decide which could fit better on the truck














    this little things cost as much as the projectors lol



    anyway thats my truck



    and this is the headlight im gonna work with it uses H4 bulb so it would be pnp i think



    this is my first retrofit and i want to thank all of you that helped me so far to choose the right stuff to order.
    im starting this thread and i will update it because im waiting the weather to get better before i start!

    as you can see the mini d2s 3.0 has a large opening and i think light will escape because the shroud cant cover it..if the iris shroud fail then i will use ocular shroud to cover the light that might glare...fingers crossed because i really dont want to paint my headlight, i like better chrome/oem look!

    cant wait to go home and light these up!

    tips and help are WELCOME!!!!

    If possible, I would highly recommend testing the hotspot of the bulb on the projector before beginning with the install.

      Yeah... the Mini D2s 3.0 is still pretty new, I think one guy reported some weird cutoff pattern on his, had to modify it a bit

          We have a Pathfinder at home that needs a set of retros, I'll be following your thread to get an idea of what is needed.

          Good luck

            you can see the weird step in the color band in the second post, not actually sure if he fixed it or not

                  I'm surprised to see how much the 3" lens and the shroud fills the reflector.

                    man you have no idea it takes up the whole headlight look..



                    left side without airbox



                    right side



                    i overall satisfied for my first retrofit BUT i made a rookie mistake.. i didnt trim the bezel enough and the shroud doesnt have room to move and i think i wont be able to use the electric leveling swith anymore..and as you can see i dont have any room to go "down" if the lights aren't positioned correctly..what do you think??

                    right


                    left


                    bummer..if i didnt had this problem everything would be perfect..for me..

                      maybe try a shroud with a flat bottom side? like the e46-r

                        nice job but i think the rotation is off just a bit, but i could be wrong.. its hard to tell from the angled pic you posted. kinda wished that the morimotos were out when i retroed my 05 pathy but i was pleased with the oem fx35s even though its more work! i used the same shrouds you used lol

                          thanks man!..no the rotation is spot on cause the h4 adapter plate its in place! the truck is sitting on angled ground thats why you see this! yes iris shrouds is my favorites i like the simplicity!

                            I would strongly recommend pointing ballast outputs downwards, not upward like yours

                              It does look very packed.

                              You might want to drive with it as is for a while and get a better feel how much the alignment needs to be tweaked.

                              Or add a tent above the ballast wires.
