Nice. I'm glad someone finally decided to do a retrofit writeup. I've seen the trs kit before but was unsure of the process.

I don't know what you're asking here. this is instruction on how to mod a zj headlight housing and lists all parts involved.

Seriously, a bunch of people here tried them when the company come on here hocking them. Total trash, just get Kolak's headlight upgrade for nearly the same price.

Thank you RM. That conversion looks good, especially compared to the other couple I read through. Yours looks great, the others look like hack jobs.
