Advanced Install Universal Retrofit Kit
Bi-Xenon: Morimoto FX-R Stage IIIB-RFK-FXRS3-TRS
[ In Stock: pieces ]
Round Three: Yeah the FX-R Stage III kit has been around for a long time now, but it's stuck around for a reason. Based on the wise old lumberjack of the Morimoto projector family, the FX-R is the original bi-xenon built for big boys. No threaded shaft for easy retrofitting, nothing tiny about it. This is the kit for the guys who want the best and aren't afraid to get their hands dirty with a dremel.
Bi-Xenon Projectors: The FX-R 3.0 is the most refined version of Morimoto's very first bi-xenon projector, and it shows in their picture perfect light output. They use Morimoto's Kuria optic clear lenses to give them a wide, intense beam pattern with a sharp and colorful cutoff line. The 3.0 version is optimized with a multi-faceted reflector bowl, curved cutoff shield, and the biggest, most reliable bi-xenon solenoid on the business. The FX-R is the biggest Morimoto projector and in some applications may take a little more effort to install, but man are they worth it! As the biggest Morimoto distributor in North America, all projectors are tuned to perfection here in our shop.
Shrouds: Basically, they're the trim piece that adds the finishing touch to your new fog light retrofit. They cover the projector after it's installed to restore the factory-finished look inside the housings. With so many different shapes, sizes, and designs available; we really recommend picking one that suits the geometry inside of your fog lights, and also your personal preference on how they look.
HID Ballasts: Designed in California by Morimoto's engineer, Yoshi Ishida, the Morimoto XB 2.0 HID Ballasts are just as good looking on the outside as they are well-engineered on the inside. They are available in both 35w and 50w versions, use proprietary software by the pros at Hylux paired with packaging perfection from the masters at Morimoto. This is today's most modern iteration of a model that has sold more than half a million units since inception, and we don't think it can really get any better!
D2S HID Bulbs: Homegrown by Morimoto to out-perform any alternatives on the market when installed in projector-based fog light--and it shows. We admit the latest generation XB HID bulbs are pretty impressive when compared to other bulbs, and even older Morimoto bulbs. At the heart of the XB bulbs is their perfectly-aligned 100% Philips quartz glass capsule that houses high quality halide salts from German-supplier Messer. In our annual lux comparison test, they produced nearly the same luminosity (intensity) as the industry benchmark Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K. No, you're not seeing things here, but yes you will be seeing everything at night.
Wire Harness: As one of the most important parts in any HID lighting upgrade; don't skimp out when it comes to your wiring. It doesn't matter how good your ballasts are. How good your bulbs are. If your harness is a piece of crap, when it gives out your fog lights are gonzo. Morimoto's harnesses are the best on the market and easily worth their premium price compared to cheaper alternatives. No matter which one is right for your application, the harness features triple-sealed central relay packs, 14ga stranded copper wiring, over-molded fittings, and plug-n-play functionality. This will ensure everything properly (and permanently) works with your vehicle's original in-cabin controls.
Optional Canbus Harnesses: Instead of a traditional relayed harness that draws power from the battery, Morimoto's Standalone Canbus harnesses use two individual sub-harnesses to keep a load on the factory wiring. Recommended for vehicles that recognize when a bulb is out, these contain a series of capacitors and resistors to trick the car into thinking nothing has changed and help you avoid annoying "bulb out" warnings. We generally recommend them for use on most modern European applications instead of normal harnesses since they do a great job at providing stable power to the ballasts and canceling bulb out warnings.
Optional LED Halos: Though LED halos may not be for everybody, if you're looking for the cleanest, most simple, most reliable setup, we highly recommend the Profile Performance Pivot Halos. Not only are they the brightest, most uniformly lit halos currently on the market, but they double as a switchback turn signal with your blinker circuit. The integrated controllers are extremely easy to setup with only three wires (white, amber, and ground) and allow you to run the white mode continuously until interrupted by the signal--at which point they will blink amber. Once the signal stops, the Pivot ring will automatically switch back to its pure white mode.
Optional Housing Sealant: Protection is priceless! When you're putting together a set of high-end fog lights, the last thing you want is moisture in 'em the first time it rains outside. RetroRubber is the most effective way to make sure the original seal is fully restored. For the small price, why anybody wouldn't prevent their new fog lights from fogging up is beyond us. It'll be the best twelve bucks you've ever spent.

I have had the FX-R 50W 5000K retro in my '09 F150 for a couple of months now, and am still amazed at the light from these. They provide a wide field of uniform bright white light. On the highway, they light up three lanes to the right and left, often brighter than the headlights from the cars in those lanes. On back roads, I can see wildlife 30 yards to the side. It sure is nice to see the deer before they are a few feet from the road. The high beams have a really tall beam, which is nice for hilly roads; my old lights left me in the dark when approaching the bottom of a hill, these shine much farther down the road.
<br>I placed the low-beam step right on the centerline for the driver's side when setting these up, which works perfectly. My OEM low beams are 2000 lumens for the pair and the high beams are 3400 lumens for the pair. These lights are 8200 per pair, but they appear much, much more than 2.4x brighter. Most pictures you see of the beam from these really don't do them justice. http://www.f150online.com/forums/illumination-lighting/457841-amazing-photos-fx-r-retro-my-f150-vs-nissan-titan-w-silverstars.html shows how these compare to a 4-bulb Silverstar system in a Nissan Titan. The pictures were taken with a fixed film speed, aperture, and shutter speed, so you can really see the difference.

Andrew helped me put together my kit, I put the fxr's on my 08 F250, did the retro myself, everything turned out the way I was hoping for! The lighting is just incredible, I'l never again have halogens on my rides!! The kits and the parts went together great, the wiring was top quality, no complaints on my end, everything was as described!
Best upgrade ever!

I have been running the FX-R kit for about 2 months now and every time I turn them on I am always amazed! Everything from the light output to the build quality are awesome. This was my first retrofit which I was a little scared to attempt but I did anyways. These went into a 04 Toyota matrix and man, did it not only transform my light output but also the looks of the front end as well. These lights project the light very wide with an awesome cut off. The FX-R overpower all of my friends cars with factory projectors and hid's :). The hid kit is much better than any other you can buy in the price range. The ballasts and bulbs are high quality and very bright with great color. You will not be disappointed with your purchase! This whole kit is amazing just buy it!

These projectors have amazing output and the cutoff is crisp. Paired with XB35 D2S 5000K bulbs and a 3 Five Ballast, you turn night into day. My job has a lot of night driving and with this kit, I now see EVERYTHING! Thanks TRS!

By far the best time, effort, and money I've spent on my car! My old plastic headlight lenses were yellow and nearly opaque, so I bought some brand new ones for Christmas. Those came with a painfully blue PNP system, so I ripped that out and put these puppies in. And then there was light, and it was good!

First let me say the staff at the retrofitsource are top notch, i called multiple times with questions and they did there best to walk me through what i needed to know. top marks for these guys, with that said let's talk install.
<br>The stage three kit is very straight forward and fitting this kit into the factory houses was (size wize) was easy, however i had to modify the headlight holes a little more than i was expecting but it was pretty straightforward, to be honest id have a dremel tool (or some form of rotory tool) with a small cutting wheel on hand to be safe. Also having a ac/dc bench tester is beyond handy (but not required). The hardest part of my install was taking 2001 model year headlights apart without breaking anything.. Now pay attention, youl thank me later for this.. when they ask you if you want the new sealant added on to your order, you say "YES". You may be able to reheat newer headlights and use the old glue to "re-seal" but im guessing no.. when i got my headlights apart i spend real time heating and reheating thoses houses trying to get that glue out.. when you do get it all out stretch out that new sealant and appy to your houses.. (its like black take playdough) and works fantastic, very easy to use. this is a 3 hour job if your working with a new cars new lights and things are fossilized.. anything a little older your going to need to alot more time to work with your older headlights.. As far as the equipment is concerned its grade A quality. I have multiple sets of HID's from a certain D.D. outfitter and this stuff from the retrofit source is hand and feet better quality equipment (but thats what your paying for). in the end my dads 2001 lincoln town cars eyes look new, and gave the car a real facelift, and he cant stop going on and on about how great the improved lighting is ! well worth the price of admission everyone !!!

I am extremely impressed with the FX-R 3.0s and I'm trying to get as many people to buy them as possible (although in all honesty everything that theretrofitsource offers is high quality). All their projectors are great, but I chose to get the FX-r 3.0s and have someone who also is a member of HIDplanet install them.

I installed these projectors on my 98 Civic Hatch and I am nothing but pleased with them. Matt at TRS is also super helpful and goes out of his way to make sure customers are taken care of. The light output with the 5000K morimoto bulbs I got are perfect, not too blue and not too yellow, pure white. The light output is night and day compared to my old halogen lights!
