Do you use a source such as TRS Innovations, I am planning on retrofitting my 04 Dodge 2500D 4X4 and I am looking for a good source for retrofitting!

Nopes. You gotto buy the LED rings to replace the OEM angel eye halos. Use this DIY as a guide and reference: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=750486

if you're local then I can do it for you. I don't think it's a good idea for you to ship me the lights because I have a full time job, thus I have only one day out of the week to work on this. A job like this does take half a day due to primer + paint + coating. If you got no time to wait, hit up sammy (the guy that created the DIY above). If your car is not a daily driver or you simply have great patience, then i can do it for you for ....let's just say lower than any one else out there.

thank you for the other compliments, i'm excited to install it tomorrow. Took me a total of 3 days due to many many many trials and errors. Fucked up a few things and had to spend many hours fixing them. Believe it or not, but customizing/painting the cornering light cover is the hardest part.

If I had to do this again, everything can be completed within the same day.

the DIY sammy post also have links to purchase them via ebay. the sizes are 95mm and 114mm...i'm sure there are many other places and options to choose from.



And here are some more photos before install, i'm just patiently waiting for the sealant to dry

Very nice! You have such high-end workbenches in your shop. Mine is just an old oak bench top.
