Got the GTR Ultra Gen 2 bulbs installed today. Not quite plug and play but still easy enough to do.

First off the factory 9005 Halogen bulb pics at night, low and high beams, against a wall and looking out across my back yard.

Now the problems. The heatsink and fan on the GTR sticks out farther than the factory bulb and requires a little modification to the dust cover. You can see here where it's hitting on the sloped part:

There's this tab that makes it so the cover can only go on in one position:

First step is to cut this tab off. I just used a small hacksaw.

With that gone you can rotate the cover 180º and get the sloped part out of the way of the heatsink. It still hits but much less than before.

So I just took a heat gun and softened that area inside and out then used the back of a screwdriver handle to push the plastic out to give clearance. It doesn't need much, less than 1/8"

Boom. Perfect non-interference fit.

And an after install pic:

I'll get some new night shots hopefully tonight and post them up. I also need to return the GTR PWM modules to Headlight Revolution as they're not needed.

Very nice. I also had the same problem with the caps not fitting when I installed my Fluxbeam LED bulbs. Unfortunately, I did not modify them to fit, and now I have a moth stuck in the housing until it dries up and falls away lol
