    Thanks to Roman, my new '18 headlamps arrived today. Also, UPS dropped off my new ESP long box from Earl (thanks Earl) and my new TRD Pro grille arrived as well. Tomorrow, my '18 fog lamps and '18 connectors for the headlamps will be here. Hopefully, I will have a harness fabricated soon and the new housings installed.

    Do you have the driver's side headlight yet? I've got the wiring figured out and I roughly wired it up (still waiting on connectors) I'll share some output pics once I get the truck back together.

    I pay with cash. Like my daddy always said, "if you don't have the cash to buy it, you don't need it". But now that you mention it, I would have earned some nice points...dang :rofl: Go Pirates!!!!

    :popcorn: I'm curious how they need to be wired, can't be too bad. Set a great example and make it look real clean. I believe you and @thomasbus337 are the first I know of to take this project on!

    Here's the verdict. Much better than stock and almost has good as HID projectors.

    What level of trickery did you have to do with the wires to get it working?

    Us retrofitters will only end up using five of the terminals on the back and they are as follows, Hi beam, Lo beam, Ground, Parking light, and DRL.

    I just did a rough hook up to test the light. I'll have more pics of the wiring by the end of the week

    How do the turn signals function? Are they always on as a DRL like previous years?

    Or would they only come on as turns like they do with my current platinum / 1794 setup?

    The turn signals should function like they do on the 14-17 1794/Platinums. I have an SR5 so I just popped in the Vleds Amber LED to see if it would fit in the housing

    See fine print
    Are you using a pnp harness you made or just splicing the wires?
    Will you share the wire colors / controls behind the headlight?

    Looks great!
