This is what I am coming from,
1993 Ford Bronco, fully caged, 2.5" Bilsteins all around, air bump, etc etc etc. Was a phenomenal truck. Looking forward to many happy years with the Raptor now!

Headlight build was next, I do retrofits as a hobby/for friends so I picked up a set of Spyder Projection headlights and stuffed them with a D2S V4.0 from Morimoto

Looking good man!

I have nearly the same truck (2012 RR Screw) and I am about to go the same route on the headlights. I got a set of projectors that look like those (may be a different brand though) and I was going to add the same projectors. How was it? I have never done anything like this before and I am a little bit sketched hah.

Thanks Lumadar, its fairly straight forward. I see your local, PM me and I'd be happy to help you out get yours setup. I buy wholesale from the Retrofit Source so can get a good deal on the parts.

I did two builds already, the first with Evo Projector which is a bolt in replacement and the second with the D2S V4. I prefer the D2S, and although the Evo has a better hotspot, I like the pattern and output of the D2 better.

Anyhow, DM me and happy to help walk you through it, or we can even get together and do them at my place one weekend.
