Custom HID Projectors

So i bit the bullet and went with Ultimate Retrofit to give my 2010 Nissan proper HIDs with projectors.

Ultimate retrofit has done an awesome job so far and has been so communicative that I actually am eager to check my email every day to see the update photos he sends me.. So far this is where we are at and They look sweet.

I highly recommend them. Welcome to Ultimate Retrofit!

Do you have to send your stock lights in to them to have it done? Prices?

not bad price at all

The cost for the full job is around 800 and change and that includes him buying brand new housings to do the retro fit so that the lens is clean, and i dont have to give up my headlights for over a week.

Looks great. I'm thinking about going morimoto with the g37-r or gatling gun shroud.

I wonder, has a titan ever done a frontier swap?

SO i got these in finally and I was ready to install, until I realized how HARD it is. I have to remove my entire bumper and all...... Possibly might sell them instead now that I know how much trouble it is or bring it to my auto body buddy.

why are you still having issues with removing the headlights? There's the obvious bolts on top when you open the hood. There are 1-2 bolts accessible when you remove the grill. the grill takes all of 1 min to remove. The other 1-2 bolts you can access by removing the bolts for the front half of the wheelwell liners then pushing the liners off to the side. The bumper does not have to come off at all. it doesn't even need to be loosened.

Actually zoom zoom, your completely wrong. Rather then be a dick head, you can ask me what the problem was I ran into, but I won't bother waiting for that question and just tell you. I took the grill off and the wheel well liner without a problem. Took the three easily accessible bolts off as well. Then when I went in from the wheel well, there is no way to reach those two bolts that you speak of. My chrome bumper LE must be different then your frontier. There was a piece of the frame that almost matched the shape of the wheel well liner and went pretty low towards the front of the car. This the reason I can understand a lot of people with the same car as mine said, "the bumper has to come off to reach the bolts".
So based on your rude and completely useless response to my post, I'm guessing you don't have an LE with a chrome bumper.
So thanks for posting but your wrong its not as simple as you said.

I changed mine without removing the bumper....... it might have been easier if I did, but whole thing didn't take more than 1 1/2hrs including adjusting. Chrome bumper btw.
