  • That's a really interesting lens shape on the GM one

    Comment


    • That lens does look interesting, wonder what the beam pattern will look like.

      • That's really cool. I hope this speeds up the time from idea to product on sale.

        • The beam pattern will be a bit tighter on the GM model thanks to the shrouded lens. #thanksfortheadvice!

          • Tighter like narrower or tighter in vertical spread?

              Which will be brighter? The 10w osram or the 3x Philips?

                • Any of the LED housings 4.5" in diameter?
                  What are the dimensions of the available housings?

                  The bulbs are out on my Formula's Fogs and I'd like to get better housings and I think I may give the Morimoto LED Fog housings a try if I can get a set to fit sufficiently.

                  • Got mine installed on my '11 JK Wrangler, upset at TRS for the wiring harness mixups. I even emailed them after the whole issues people were having and they repeatedly told me the supplied harness would work. Well IT DIDNT. I found out after I had taken the car apart. The supplied adapter that goes form the foglight 9006 plug to the cars plug is not the correct one.

                    Left xB, right OEM bulb
                    notice how the OEM bulb has a nub to the left of the pins? The xB has this nub to the right of the pins. So I checked which was the + and - pin and I shaved the xB nubs to make it fit. Not really a big deal but not plug and play as described.

                    I zip tied the plugs together just in case they decide to come undone. I had to shave the locking nub to make the orientation work.

                      • Some ground shots... I locked the exposure to dark and took a series of pics, then locked exposure it light and took pics. It's not this blue in real life, overexposure distorts the color.
                        locked to dark below...

                        • Autofocus adjusted to beam then exposure locked... The output is actually this color but doesn't pic up as much of the light as in the above pics.
