Looking forward to getting you set up properly so you can see at night!

Who else struggles to see the road?

I read primitive's response to these lights, I do almost all of my road trip driving at night, and would REALLY like to have the visibility new cars have. Can anyone post some nice dark comparison pics, or tell me how well these work? I'm pretty psyched on the possibility of these working.

I do not have any pics to post but having driven all around AZ in the past month with REDOVAL's headlights, I can tell you they ROCK.

On low beam, the cutoff is a super sharp ____/------ pattern. This allowed me to aim the headlights for maximum low beam coverage without annoying other drivers, both oncoming, directly in front as well as to the sides of me. The lighting of the highway signs and sides of the road are truly excellent , as is the forward projection of the low beam. I never felt I was driving beyond the headlights. Going into Sedona late at night, we picked up deer in the side bushes three different times, a good distance fron wher they were. The high beam helps with additional overall light and adds to the overall illumination, but the low beams are soooooo good!

I have the Halo Ring and the LED strip at the bottom that I have yet to hook up because I want them on a separate switch., so my experience is with the main beams only. I am looking forward to what those two will add. I really want the LED strip usable as area lighting for the campsite or going into a crowded campground .

I actually don't have any before photos of the stock lights, but here are the night photos I have. The last photo was taken offroad with the high beams on and an led light bar on in the bumper.

Wrapped up this nice set of Option 3 lights with Apollo 3 premium shrouds. I really like this combo...may have to build a replica set for myself! Ignore the poor image, my phone is desperately trying to be replaced.

About to head out on a trip and just installed the kit. High beams aren't working. Does anyone have suggestions please?

Wondering if it's because the wiring might be reversed ?

Make sure the ground wire is solidly connected and clean.

Really..?

That's a good remembering, we really had good time in Death Valley together.

About reliability of TRS kits, I installed one on VivaLaVida in 2013 and drove more than 65,000 miles since, likely more than 25,000 on dirt and quite a few on really rough terrain. Everything still works as the first day.

We have spent quite a bit of time offroad with these lights recently
