I tried that approach. The dealership and GM both said "no way".

No why what? we did it with our harness, dealer are only good at sealing new cars and trucks, and some times not that.

No way they would do it. I provided them with info from another dealership in Wisconsin that did this for one of their customers. I was then advised that "A lot of people got in trouble over that", and they refused to do it. Tired of trying to get them to do something about it, so I'm going aftermarket.

Most aftermarket dont last as long as OEM, but if that's what you like go for it by all means.

Both with and without fogs. Brighter pictures are with both on. The lower light pics are just headlights

 

Where did you get your projectors?

Interesting thread!! I'm going to be trading my weak-ass lows for LEDs, but I also want to "upgrade" my highs to ones that "will burn the eyeballs out of skulls from beyond the horizon." Any suggestions?

Are your housings factory HID? I have a 2015 with halogens and want to go HID. I’d like to buy factory housings before trying a retrofit. What are you running in the pics above?

I just bought a 2017 Sierra and it has T4F listed for the lights. It has HID for headlights and led for fog lights. When searching for led replacement I can’t find anything compatible. Is my only option to replace the whole lens with the factory led ones? I’m sure after market leds will come out at some point.
