Anzo 111369 U-Bar Headlights

Recommended Posts

Has anybody ordered these yet? I just saw them listed as a new product on the Anzo website. They sell two versions: white U-Bar DRL and white/amber switchback U-Bar DRL.

 

These are the best looking aftermarket headlights I've seen besides the oem 2017 headlights. It says they fit in 2014-2017 Sierras.

 

If anyone has installed them, does the U-Bar come on as the DRL, or does the headlight bulb have to be on?

Anzo headlights get terrible light output reviews and more often then not the quality is sub par. Lots of complaints about condensation and the plastic lens flaking.

 

They look good, don't get me wrong there, but Anzo and product longevity rarely are in the same sentence.

 

Just my two cents...

Valid point. I've never put in a set of aftermarket headlights so I can't give my opinion on the quality of the Anzo lights. That's what I was looking for here.

 

I did find a F150 forum topic on a similar set of Anzo lights that has 430 pages. Common consensus over there is that the housing build quality is good, but the connectors seem to be cheaper than the OEM connectors. Also, most of the guys who purchased the Anso lights replaced the included halogen H7 bulb with LED bulbs, aimed the headlights properly, and were satisfied with the output. I went through about 20 pages of the thread and didn't see any of the issues you described. Maybe that was with the older CCFL/Halo style Anzo lights?

 

I have noticed since I've owned my 2014 Sierra (only a few months) that the low-beams don't seem to be as bright as previous vehicles I've driven and the high-beams aren't much of a help. I replaced the stock halogen lights with LED which did help, but this new U bar Anzo design looks really really good. It seems like a good alternative to buying the stock 2017 headlights for $800+ on top of new harnesses for around $200.

 

I have a friend who has a dealer account with an offroad company. If he can get the Anzos for a good price I may give them a shot.

I do not have the Anzo headlights for a GMC but I do I have the 111309 for the silverado. I actually had the opposite of what waterfowler41 mentioned. My oem reflector headlights had horrible light output, condensations issues and the chrome was pitting/peeling. Mind you this was less then a year old and the truck was built in Mexico and sold in San Francisco and lives in San Francisco....no snow, no hail! I have had zero issues with my Anzos in two years but I also never used the "known" worthless Halogen bulb that came with it. I installed a Morimoto HID kit at the same time and adjusted the headlights. They blow my old oem headlights out of the water. I plan on swapping the projectors eventually for better light out put. I apparently have been lucky though. I have heard other people having issues with them. So I have my fingers crossed. All I know is now I can see around a corner when I turn and I could not before with the oem light housing even after swapping bulbs.

What kind of issues have you heard of other people having with the Anzo lights? How long have you had yours installed? Any lens yellowing/other signs of aging?

I have had mine on the truck for almost two years. I have no discoloration, no fading, pitting or peeling. I think I remember someone on the forum saying they had condensation issues but then again myself and many others had this issue with the stock OEM GM headlights as well as piss poor light output. *there is a lawsuit about this*

As others have stated about the aftermarket headlights you have to install HID or LED bulbs. The bulbs supplied with them are garbage! The Projectors that come on the anzo headlights are a mixed bag. some come with your ultra low end acme H1 projectors and others will come with complete garbage projectors. Keep in mind that ANZO headlights are made by EagleEyes. They make good replacement headlights its just never the high quality like some OEM parts. I have had so many issues with my GM truck that I can not speak highly of their OEM parts so after market it is for me! Like I mentioned before I plan on doing a projector swap eventually because I can never leave anything alone.

 

If you have a connection to get them I would totally give them a try and if you do not like them return them!

 

ps. Make sure if you order the HID or LED kit you get H7 bulbs!

Any idea if these work with the 2014 headlights that don't have the factory DRL, such as the SLE versions?

They work with all versions supposedly. The U bar functions as a parking light

No offense if you REALLY like these but honestly they look like ass. Additionally every aftermarket headlight I've ever seen has had TERRIBLE light output. IMHO you would be better off to look at doing a retrofit to an FXR projector and install an HID kit...

They look very similar to the 2016 GMC Sierras, very simple design. Just a projector and U DRL just like the OEM lights on the newer trucks. Unless you don't like the look of the newer truck lights. Just a nice alternative for those who don't want to spend double the amount on a set of OEM lights IMO

      I know the 6112s are semi-new to the community. My question is what would be the lowest possible notch I can install these and still have enough clearance to fit 275X 65R 20 KO2s. I’d imagine the notch settings are similar to the 5100s accept there is 1 extra notch I believe. I have been searching online for the past week and cannot find anyone that confirms the lowest possible setting to fit these tires. I know I can install them at the highest setting and fit just fine, But I am trying to keep rake in the rear due to occasional towing and i do not want to add a leveling block to the rears. I was thinking the third notch (1.25” of lift) would work but I’m not sure if It will get rubbing.  Does anyone have any idea on this? I currently have a 2.5 inch leveling spacer but do not want to install it when I switch to the Bilstein 6112s. Thanks!

      I have a grant steering wheel assembly, but I need more insight on how to install.  Watched a bunch of videos but couldn't find a good one for what I doing.

      Looking to upgrade my halogen headlight housing (reflector) light output with some LED headlight bulbs.
       
      I understand many people say not to do it as it blinds others, however I rarely drive at night and even then I live in a very rural area with little traffic. Most of the usage with be during the day with the DRL’s. 
       
      So does anyone have recommendations for what kind of LED bulb I should go with, one that works good in the reflector style headlight housing?
       
      Looking for a simple bulb swap, I think you should be able to just swap the bulbs out right?

      I have the 8" infotainment system in my 2014 Chevy Silverado. It can't be upgraded, and needs to be replaced for that reason. The last post on the topic was from 2016, and I think a lot has changed since then. Here's what I'm looking for: 
       
      Needs: A unit that will snap in or integrate with the factory system.  Integration with steering wheel controls.  Apple Play CD/DVD Bluetooth Wants Integrated controller for 12v (think winch, lights, etc.) Ability to add front and side cameras (blind spot) Ability for a trailer camera (nice to have)  
      All I can find is the Alpine i209-GM In-Dash Restyle System, which is $2k without the additional video inputs or controller. Total setup would be more than 5k.  WAY out of my budget. Has anyone else been able to achieve this? 
       
      I appreciate any thoughts you may have! 
       
      Thanks!

      Question ?? does anyone know if the 2018 Yukon "HID" headlight assembly will fit my 2015 Yukon ? and if so are they just plug and play or are the wiring harness's different ? I've been running aftermarket HID's and I'm tired of always having to work on them, just not reliable and the stock halogen bulbs in projectors just plain suck !!
