    NEW Raptor Retrofit Headlights Installed! Thank You Dawson!

    I want to give a shout out to Dawson. We began talking about my headlights almost three months ago or so, if not a little more. We discussed all kinds of options, but the single most important thing for me was that I wound up with a truly custom headlight with red white and blue accents and the FMS eagle head from the company logo integrated into the lights for a truly unique look. Well, Mr. Sears showed up at Havoc in the Hills and presented a set of headlights to me that, now that I've had a chance to install, absolutely blow me away! My idea for integrating the three colors was to have a triple halo setup, however, after a little R&D Dawson figured out that to do so wouldn't be possible because of the diameter of the third "outer" ring. It was going to be too large to work properly. So what he did was provide a white inner halo with a blue outer halo and red backlighting. He also built them so that I could run the red and blue lighting through my Aux 4 switch to be able to turn them off on the road, this was very important for me living in Va since they can be very unforgiving with lighting upgrades where I live. It was also very important to me that the projectors used in the lights put out as much light as possible, I have had projectors in other vehicles and actually had the Spyder projector halo headlights in the truck already and one common denominator between all of those that I have had was the poor light output. Well, he hit the nail on the head. Not only do the lights look amazing, I have better light output than any other headlight I have ever had. I am actually thinking of trying to talk him into retrofitting new lights for the wife's Yukon Denali sometime in the future. Anyway, below are some daytime and nighttime pics of the lights he delivered to me. The pics give you an idea of what they look like, but don't come close to doing them justice, they are truly amazing looking lights in person. Also, I have had two people in my life (besides family) that have ever truly left me speechless. One was John Wilczynski when he gave me a couple of 30mm depleted uranian shells that were actually fired from an A10 Warthog in Iraq; the other was Dawson. I won't say what he charged me, let's just say that it was a STEAL, let's just way that because of helping him out with a few things and to help me along in the new business, the price of the lights was not what anyone could even guess. I don't have his permission to tell anyone what I paid, so I will leave that to him, let's just say that without the deal he gave me, I would not have been able to afford such awesome lights so soon into the new business startup! Below are cell phone pics so I apologize for the poor quality. I am going to attempt to get better pics as soon as I can.

    Dawson, thank you. You are THE MAN and your lighting retrofit talents are second to none!

    Thanks for the great write up Chris! Not really a big secret, you sent me your old lights and I donated the rest. Anyone who has dealt with Chris knows he will do anything for his customers. I constantly see him on here bending over backwards to get all us FRF clowns what we need asap. The lights were just a small thank you, a little "what goes around comes around" just came around for you, hahaha.

    Enjoy the headlight upgrade buddy! The red white and blue is sweet but I really dig the eagle logo, that turned out sick!

    I will say this, you blew me away with them. Not only in nailing the red white and blue theme I was going for, but then donating them for the FMS Raptor. There have been very few times since I began operating online that someone has truly surprised me, but that my friend really got me. I would have never expected that at all. In other words, thank you!!!

    I can't remember exactly which projectors he said he used, but I will say this, they are the brightest HID's I have ever had. These are the first set if HID projectors I have had that I didn't have trouble seeing the road at night and the bright lights had everyone here saying "WOW".

    NOBODY deserves it more. Really like the blue ring. This certainly give you some interesting daylight running options.
