2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 (SRW) Duramax Crew 4x4 WT model 6 1/2’ bed. I sideswiped an embankment and damaged the driver side starting with the headlight assembly (which is toast) all the way back to the rear bumper. Luckily as far as the eye is concerned it’s not really all that bad and it’s all on the lower panels and quite livable. But have to do headlight and they want $650 for that puppy!!! In an attempt to save money I am very curious because next to it I also own a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 regular cab 2 door, WT model 8’ cargo bed. It’s already beat up and it’s just a secondhand truck I have for doing things and would gladly swap parts and not care about how that truck looks! Did they do a model swap in 2015 and have two different 2015 versions cuz always been curious for sometime now that whenever I look up parts they always say 2014-2018 OR 2015-2019??? Why the overlapping years? Would think it would be 2014-2018 and 2019-??? Anyway can anyone tell me if the following body parts can be swapped or if there is a website that cross references such things? Looking at it with the “eye” they look identical and would be a perfect fit but know how things like that go... I can supply both vin numbers if that helps. 1) Windshield 2) Front driver fender 3) Headlight assembly 4) Rear bumper Not worried about the trim as in chrome or black. 3500 has chrome rear step bumper and 1500 black step but would actually prefer the black anyway! Hard one to decide is the headlight assembly as once again 3500 chrome and 1500 black but other than that are they identical as far as fitment is concerned? Thanks!
2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 WT crew cab passenger side complete headlight assembly chrome. The back of the dust covers have been cut open to fit LED lights as well as give more airflow to cool down. I am transferring the LED lights to my new headlight assembly and will put brand new bulbs in it. This will NOT fit the 1500. I’m certain It’s for 2014-2018 2500 & 3500 but I believe there’s other applications as well such as Tahoe and Suburban. Prices range from $625 to $800 for new OEM! I know, absolutely ridiculous!!! I have attached a couple of pictures with prices to show both Google and EBay. $500 includes free shipping! Last picture below is the actual headlight.
Having cracked the drivers headlight and finding out the cheapest OEM replacement was $600 I looked for aftermarket. These are Akkon and look identical to Spyder and may very well be they make them for Spyder. $300 Amazon. Fast shipping and so far, a very high quality made product! Very happy with them so far and love the daytime running lights strip that surrounds the headlights plus you don’t burn out your headlights as fast using them for the running lights. Hoping I can use the same LED bulbs in my old assembly but just haven’t gotten around to doing that yet. Upside is I should be able to sell the passenger side for around $500 on eBay, covering the cost of both and pocketing $200!!!
I give up!!!! Web search shows hundreds of companies that “proclaim” to sell headlight lenses only, there are write ups on the Internet saying how it’s cheaper then to replace the entire assembly, there are articles about should you polish or replace the lens. The only problem? I can’t find anyone that freaking SELLS THEM! Punch in headlight lens on Google and it will come up with an endless list of companies AND PICTURES of the lens, but when you actually go to the website it produces nothing but headlight assemblies over and over! Frustrating and irritating to say the least. So is anybody aware of a place that I can order the clear outer plastic lens only for a 2015 3500 Silverado? Or am I dreaming? And has anyone tried just using a clear cover to snap over it?
