    Hey guys,
    I was fortunate enough to win the awesome prize that Dawson donated for the Havoc in the Hills II run. This supported the Be The Match charity.

    First thanks to Dawson for a great give away and to GLRE for an outstanding raptor event.

    Now....I need some help deciding what to have built for the Night Raptor. I currently have an early generation retrofit, but there are so many cool things that have come out since the ones I got over two years ago.

    Here are some pics of what I have now.

    Evil eyes! Also if u plan to keep the wrap for a long time or at least that color combo maybe as those colors to the lights. I color matches mine and I think they look great and many people love them. Maybe do the buckets black with blue shrouds and throw some of that green in there somewhere

    For the projector go with at least the fxr. I really like my FXR projectors very good pattern and awesome high beam!

    Yukon, first off congrats on winning!!! Secondly, great question and a tough one there are so many options. Maybe, ask Dawson to post pics of his new setup that he was installing at Havoc. - it was LEDs outlining the whole headlight - looked interesting but didn't see it at night. Or maybe some blue to match your truck either custom paint inside or blue led ring??? Wow this is tough - good luck!

    Yeah. I guess I first need to decide on the original head, or the new hid style.

    I'm liking some blue on the shroud to match.

    I did see the new led outlines. They looked really cool.

    I might sell them. I didn't know if I should send them back for rebuild our just go with new. The amber rings no longer work, the projectors still kick ass. They would be a worthy upgrade to someone.

    Congrats on that awesome prize! Dawson currently has my set I bought from him earlier this year for the EvoX 50w upgrade and a few other things. Sell the old ones and get new ones. It would be a nice project for someone on a budget.

    Whatever you get will be pretty sweet. 1 thing for sure though is do the EvoX 50w projectors.

    Send the old ones back and get the LS460 upgrade or you could have Dawson give the RX350 projector a shot. The RX is a popular choice on HID Planet.
