Yes he already said that.

 

How's install? Just pop one bulb out and put the other one in?

There shouldnt be any bulbs to change. it should be a led assembly unless he changed the whole fog light assembly.

Looks like a great light. Nice upgrade. I find these stock ones bright after having a 14 for years. The upgrade bug will come soon enough

Foglamps are just a Lamin-X film. No hardware changes.

Straight forward. Little lever on side of the bulb, slide back from headlamp and out. Unplug connector. Connect to new bulb. Slide in carefully. Lift lever. Done.

I just got a couple pictures while on the road this evening. Not the best but they give an idea.

Sorry, Do you drive a 2500? Reason I ask is this is different than drop in HID bulbs. We have HIDs stock and are just putting in higher wattage bulbs.

 

If you’re using the stock housings from a 16 and up 1500 truck, I apologize.

With the new projector setup, has anyone used LED’s instead of HID’s?

LTZ/SLT/HC/Denali models come with LED. I don't think I've seen anyone swap from HID to LED or vice versa in 2016+ 1500 models.

HID @ 35w has more output than the LED lamps... also nobody makes a d5s based replacement... its significantly different in filiment location than any other dXs based bulb.... so challenge there in itself.

 

There is a D2S LED replacement, but it doesnt even compare to a 35w D2S lets lone a 50w version.
