Sorry I'm a little late, I've been in the Caribbean for a little over a week and just getting around to posting pictures. I know there was a lot of fuss of whether or not the SLT lights would so I bit the bullet and bought a used set to test. I got the lights and with the help of a fried who owns a 16 and you guys providing a pin out I was able to get the light working. The only issue I found was the DRL did not cut off when the turn signal was activated. Some may like this some may not. I however do not. When the sun is out full force and the DRL is at full brightness the LED turn signal is a little faint. Plus i'm picky and would like to stay close as factory options as possible. With all that being said I figured a switchback circuit inline with the adapter would cut the DRL off once the turn signal got power. Only problem is I have no clue how to build one so I reached out to GEN5 and they were more than helpful. I sent my light to Jarrod a little over 2.5 months ago and the process of building a harness began. For you guys that already have the SLT lights you can thank me later, JK. Anyways the harness for the 14-15 SLT is still being tweaked as its different from the SLE's but here you go.

 

Still have a couple kinks to work out but they work. Switchback circuit is being. No biggie Offer is on it as we speak.

 

SLT lights part numbers:

23506752

23506753

 

The harness

Awesome work!

 

The only reason I didn't order a 2015 was for the LED's available in a 2016!

 

Definitely worth it!

Truck looks great! I'd love to do this to mine. Where did you end up finding a used set of lights, ebay? And if you don't mind me asking how much did you have to pay for them and how much were the harnesses to buy? Also how much better is the light output at night?

Friend of a friend works for LKQ and he located them. One had a few scratches that I wet sanded and buffed but overall they are perfect. I paid $760 and some change for both of them. yes the light output is insane compared to the halogens. These are LED and superbright.

Thanks for this! I just ordered a set of the 16 LED headlights with a harness from GEN5. I appreciate being able to see what my final look is going to be like.

You don't happen to have any pictures comparing the light output do you?

Thanks
Josh

Did you talk with Jarod? If you want the switchback added I know they are building a new harness for that. I can try and take some tonight.

Yes, I dealt with Jarrod from the start. He was super patient with me; I had a ton of questions. I believe the one I'm getting is the new harness.
