Wade, the gmc's got hids in 16, Chevy is still rocking halogen. Just get the saber pros, the output is great and they fire instantly.
Might have to be trying these soon...

Does anyone have any more info of what led headlights they'd reccommend? I really want the brightest I can get and will last. So far i have found diode dynamics bulbs for $120. Ddm 40w sabers for $85. Opt7 flux beam for $90 or the flux beam x for $110

Dang there's too many options the firewires are a little out of the budget. I guess it might be between the morimoto and flux beam x from opt7. 250 5 start reviews and none under 4 starts has to mean something with the opt7... but the morimoto is a very well respected name. Ugh but the ddm seem good too

Just installed the ddm 40 w, hid bulbs in my 17 a little bit ago. The clips from the ballast to the stock plug is a bitch to connect, not sure why. They are heavy and feel like quality lights bulbs. The heatsink fan is loud enough to hear if the trucks off and lights are on standing by the gril, and you can feel a very very faint vibration from the fans on the fan shroud. Last thing is the factory light weather cover would not fit back over the connection cause the wiring from the back of the bulb comes strait out and not angled down like the stock bulbs..not sure that's a problem or not. It MIGHT have but I didn't want to force it..
Light output is fantastic tho! I'll put up a pic once the sin goes down.

I just installed my morimoto 2stroke bulbs. Will do a write up after it gets dark to see actual light output. However side by side they don't really look as bright as my eBay cheapies

GM couldn't spring for an led-hid in a loaded 60k $ pickup, so it should be a world of difference coming from the stock holigen bulbs.

Very very true. However it's slightly disappointing that a well known high quality bulb make which cost $120 honestly looks about the same as my $40 eBay China specials

Out of all things to mod or do to a truck I have yet to figure out why anyone would pick the lights to spend money on. If you can't see well enough with the headlights on 2010+ trucks money would be better spent on a trip to the eye doctor. Sorry for not being positive but I wished they outlaw them since they blind the shit out everyone even on low beam.

Couldn't agree more. To each his own, but damn they are annoying.

Lotta blind mother****ers out there making aftermarket lights their first mod... **** I still got stock bulbs and never use my high beams and I'm still alive, and I drive home at 3am every night from work...

I do wanna run those douchebags off the road with hid bulbs in non-projector housings though...
