    Anyone know of a place to get retrofitted headlights for a 2nd gen? Bonus points if they are in BC or AB. I found a guide on how to do it yourself, but after looking at the price of new headlight assemblies, I'm thinking the safe bet is to get a professional to do it.

    I did some retrofit long ago, IF you want it to look different, yes, retrofit is the way to go.

    If you want performance, and there's no better OEM alternative, then yes retrofit is the way to go, but consider you can bolt on facelifted Sequoia lights onto 2nd gen, I'd re-consider that option.

    retrofit is time consuming, and often leaks, it requires cutting, plastic welding, removing the lenses etc, and expensive.

    As a reference I retrofit the bi-xenon projectors from a BMW E46 (3 series) into my BMW E39 (5 series).

    Thanks for the tip. I'll look at sequoia lights again. I guess it might end up being pretty close to the same price all in.

    Take a look at the Morimoto XB leds. Alot cheaper than the Sequoia conversion.

    Those are definitely a bit more reasonable. Thanks!

    No problem. I had them on my 2013. Now I have some on my 2020.

    I would have to dig around for some of the output shots but you would like them. I do have pics of them looking at the front of the truck.

    That looks really good, is that just low beams?

    Sweet. Ess K Customs is selling them for $1250 which I'm pretty sure is the cheapest option right now.

    That would save me $100, but how much is shipping to Canada?

    We can certainly ship to you, you'll just need to go add what products you want to your cart and create an account. From there, you can select shipping options for an exact quote. :)
