    2019 Chevy Silverado Custom Trailboss

    Nice!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ I'm glad everything went as planned. Looks good!! And your right. GM didn't leave much room down inside the fender for even a medium sized hand, but persistence pays off. 😁

    Looking at the photos from the link you supplied I doubt they're going to fit without leaving the dust covers off behind the bulbs. Those cooling fans look like they stick out pretty far behind the bulb. There's very minimal space behind both the hi and low beams. I'll be waiting to see if they fit. Good luck Tomleo67 πŸ‘πŸΌ

    Your more than welcome.. Hopefully you installed yours like the video. Hate to see you have to reach down in there again to turn them. :-)

    I installed mine according to the install video and have had zero oncoming cars flash me. Correctly installed the power cord will be facing down and the LED bulbs will be at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions as Sealights installment video demonstrates.

    I think the beam pattern is perfect. I didn't have to re-aim these bulbs. They match the pattern of the stock bulbs but white and much brighter. I haven't had one oncoming car flash me since the install which tells me the beam pattern is identical to the stock ones. You won't be disappointed with them.

    Hey stujameson, Yes they can. There's no need to remove the driveshaft. My '19 Silverado is a Z71 which gives me the two speed transfer case you need to flat tow. Having the two speed transfer case with HI & LOW range you will just need to do the following steps to put the transfer case into neutral so all 4 wheels can free wheels. First: Activate the parking brake, then apply the brake and shift the transmission in neutral, then you will need to push the 2H button five times within 10 seconds. You will then notice in the center digital display the 2H change to N. This will then let the truck be flat towed on all 4 wheels down the road. There's a few additional steps that have to be done but nothing out of the ordinary from flat towing my '14 Silverado. To answer your other question I use the "AVAIL Blue Ox Motorhome Mounted Tow Bar" rated at towing 10,000 lbs. There are two (2 inch or 2 1/2 inch) depending on the size of your receiver. I also use the Blue Ox Patriot II Breaking System that sits on the floor of the truck in front of the driver's seat and clips to the brake pedal. It's a very slick set-up, the 12V brake controller is wireless back to the Patriot II and has worked flawlessly so far. Any other questions feel free.. πŸ™‚

    Yes they are. Unplug the stock bulbs and plug in these. Same connections

    Hey LeadUtensil, The color of these bulbs show as bright white. The stock bulbs are dull yellow and we're terrible trying to see at night.

    No issues whatsoever so far, No radio interference, I'm very impressed with them so far. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ I was just camping in the Florida Keys last week along with the truck and there were no issues with overheating headlights but I didn't actually feel the dust cover to see if they were hot. I can imagine everything under the hood was very hot being 88 degrees and humid all week. πŸ˜‰

    No issues whatsoever. There's no flickering or any other issues with these bulbs with the DRL. I'm very satisfied with them so far. I would highly recommend them. I didn't have to readjust the headlights after installing them like another brand I used on my '14 Silverado. With masking tape, I marked the beam pattern on the garage door for the stock bulbs before I removed them, then after installing the new bulbs the beam hit in the exact spot. There was no readjusting the headlights. I can't say enough good things about these bulbs so far. Very quiet running fan in each bulb. Two thumbs up. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

    Hey Daverado, Naaaa.. no one hates me yet. 😁 I took numerous photos trying to get the true results of the headlights but it was tough. The camera shot doesn't do the headlights justice. I marked my garage door with tape exactly where the halogen beams hit and then compared the LED beam once I swapped them out and they hit in the exact spot.. I've had zero issues with anyone flashing there lights thinking I have my high beams on like the previous LED bulbs I installed on my '14 Silverado. With those I ended up adjusting those headlights down so as to not blind anyone. The new Sealight bulbs have great reviews so I decided to try them and I'm very happy so far.

    Low beam bulbs are H11 High beams are 9005 I just installed a 4 piece set of LED lights from Sealight on my '19 Silverado Custom Trailboss. Just make sure you buy mini or low profile bulbs as most of the LED bulbs have the large cooling fans with heat sinks mounted on the back of each bulb and you won't be able to reinstall the dust covers. Whatever you buy, make sure the bulbs are low profile as there's not as much room directly behind the bulbs like on previous years. My '14 Silverado Rally 2 I just traded in had room for the large cooling fans on the rear of the bulbs. But this isn't the case with the '19's. These are the ones I just installed in my truck. I bought the 9005/H11 4piece set. What a difference in color and brightness.. 110% better. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MNG5S5P/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Hope this gives you an idea of what you need to change your headlights out. In the photo the left are the stock bulbs and new LED's on the right.
