    Seems like a nice cutoff they do have s cool start up sequence that u can see on YouTube. Wonder if this series could be competitive with the xbs? I just love the blinker set up with the xbs!

    Didn’t see those. They look really nice. I wonder if it’s just the pic that makes the top cutoff diff color. But they look way better than the alpha owls. And yes I get tons of comments about the blinkers being sequential on the xb’s

    I personally didn’t want to take a chance on those novas so I’m probably gonna get the Morimotos bc of the known quality etc. who know the novas might be excellent but I don’t have the cash to take chances lol

    Apologies for the delay with the update on the new harness...found out I'm extremely allergic to yellow jackets and have been down for about a week :annoyed:

    But install and testing should be later tonight with additional alignment and cutoff pics

    Just finished up! The new harness for the 18+ OEM LED trucks works perfect with no warning lights at all. I assume they should have the harness available at mass in due time.

    Leveled out finally, just cannot get the damn rotation out on the driver's side. Not sure if it's my truck, the lamp, or there is a rotational adjustment. Reached out but won't hear anything until next week. Definitely glad not to have that warning light anymore. Makes the center screen useless at night.

    I've tried shimming, twisting, and any other kind of method of turning it...just cant get it! Luckily it's on the one that got wet and will be replaced if I can't figure it out before then.

    Side note: The screws where the lamps are held in place into the plastic clips are just a little too flimsy for me and the amount of offroading I do, so I removed them and used bolts and washers to secure them directly to the metal frame where the plastic clips mount in to. Just a thought for anyone that doesn't want to risk them bouncing around

    Sorry for the crappy pics

    So it looks like not many are interested in the lights. If theres 20+ participants I will offer a group buy on these. But members need to be 100% sure they want these. TRS opened pre-order for dealers so let me know guys :)
