I wanted to be able to match these fog lights. Is the only reason I went with what I got. He did say the 35 watt 5500k is the true white, but the 55w ballast would produce more light output. And in order for me to match the fogs with the 55w ballast I had to go with the 6500k. He did say that if they were to bright that I could always just buy the replacement 5500k bulbs. Another thing that swayed me to go on with the 55w ballast was all of the reviews. 7dd7debeefe42537d90b599da0f3d009.jpg

I’m not a fan of the halogen warm light output. I like the pure white or a cool white for my lights. I was gonna go with the 55 watt lights. I know on the NNBS trucks on the factory headlights. If you go that high, your lights will melt. That’s why I was considering 35 watt. And the fogs, I might roll with the Diode Dynamics XP 80s. I want my lows and fogs to match.

New rear shocks; back end was starting to jump around like an empty dump truck. Went with Napa branded Monroe Reflex. Rides a lot better, and no more wheel hop!

I'm not a fan either, I'm wanting to the pure white as well. The picture I posted is what I'm hoping for. Hopefully I'll have them installed this weekend, if so I'll post a picture after I get them in. 3571630e2ff9cbdc579fb5605a73e585.jpg

That’s looks incredible man on the light output. Who are you getting the lights through? 35 or 55 watt?

If you call in to order you should be able to sway them in to a 10% discount pretty easily. My total order for my hid elite kit, 1 extra bulb, couple rolls of cloth harness tape, and a roll of their techflex wire loom came out over 200 dollars. They gave me a 10% discount because their website was messed up. I ended up paying 170 for everything. Shipping is free on anything over 100 dollars.

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. I’ll check em out. So many places to get lights these days, it’s unreal man. Yeah that’s gonna loo good. I’ll be making a purchase on lights once I get my tax returns back with new wheels and tires too. Lol

Lift, wheels and tires are next on my list. My first priority is getting some better light output. I'm possibly looking into doing the slt headlight swap so my drl' s will be leds instead of the headlight bulb itself. I put a light bar behind my grill, #1 I don't like the way it looks, and #2 I cant run with it on all the time. 3185707e49f119e9662e4e24fcdb70b9.jpg

Yeah GM, definitely was slacking on the light outputs on these. Or I’m just blind one, haha.

I've wondered that myself. But after reading all of the negative comments about the headlights my opinion has swayed more towards the headlights not my eyes. Haha

I bought mine off Amazon

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MQVOJV0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Seems like a higher price than I paid, but my memory might be off.

 

Not sure why GM doesn't send these trucks out with these in.  

Thats about how much i paid for them off amazon back in like October/November

Has anyone had the issue of their reverse lights being on (just dim) whenever their headlights are on? Im assuming its a ground issue or something. I've had the truck since August (18k miles before i got it) and i added reverse lights that are T-tapped in by the bulb in September. The issue started about mid january. I tried undoing the added reverse lights i put in to make sure that wasnt the issue. It started acting up after a weekend in upstate NY where i was in 0 degree weather and parked in snow (from a storm). Maybe the salt on the roads got through a wire or something?
