I'll snap a couple today. I can't believe the difference it made. The chrome lights really stand out like a sore thumb; or at least they did for me after changing out to a Sport grille.

I think painting the mirrors will have a big impact as well. I don't mind the chrome door handles as much, they tie in nicely with the grille inserts and chrome emblems.

For the HID's yes. For the lights no. I just ordered a set of Sport ones and gave mine to a friend that didn't have the projectors.

The HID kits for the 13's are having issues. I've seen three now that have been installed and are throwing a low beam out warning on the screen. Jeremy is looking into it as we speak.

Thanks for the pics man. Much appreciated. I am keeping the chrome grille but I still think I want to switch out the lights.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you buy and how much did you pay for the sport projectors and grille? Been considering the same mods for my truck when it comes in.

Ordered Airlift 1000s for the rear. Jegs price matches amazon right now for $77.60. Seemed like a no brainer deal for anyone that tows or uses their bed!!

The grille cost me under 300.00 through my dealership. I could have done it for less by just ordering the insert and having the chrome surround painted but I decided to just replace the whole thing. I have a friend who is a painter who painted it for me.

As far as the lights go; let's just say I'd recommend someone spending some sweat equity and baking theirs apart and painting them. They aren't cheap. The only trucks I like the sport lights are on black trucks though. We have a few different colored sports and the black lights on other colors look out of place.

That's a tough call. I actually think the chrome lights tie in good with the chrome grilles. I hated the stock chrome grille. Maybe if it had had a billet insert like the big horns it might have looked better. It just looked like a giant sheet of tin foil on there to me.

I had the issue of the light out, turned out (retrofitsource kit) that the resistors pigtail ends had to have the wiring reversed. (had to change the pins around, Andrew at the retrofitsource helped me.
Have Jeremy contact Andrew and ask about that, tell him to reference me and my truck to Andrew (the 13 with the 09 Duals)
