Halogen to LED bulb swap


Recommended Posts

If anyone is interested in swapping out their halogen bulbs for LED bulbs here is what I used.

 

Front turn signals are switchback bulbs that are constantly white and turn yellow once turn signal is activated

 

LASFIT 7443CK 7444CK ONLY for CK socket, Switchback Yellow/White, CANBUS LED Turn Signal Light Error Free Anti Blinker Bulb Hyper Flash(2pcs) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0825M835W/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_LM6aGbHQ05KXJ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

 

 

Front low/high beams were reached from the inner fender after removing wheel well liner (15 minutes total for each side)

 

SEALIGHT Scoparc S1 H11/H8/H9 LED Headlight Bulbs, Low Beam/Fog Light, 6000K Bright White, Halogen Replacement, Quick Installation https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079KB7QX3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_gP6aGbT9E3SDS?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1


Both lights match the lower led fog lights. It looks way better in my opinion. I have yet to test them out at night

If you didn't do the highs yet the post with all the bulb information in the general section was wrong for my 21 3500, it listed 9005 bulbs when they were h9 bulbs installed which are the same as h11 when buying leds.

 

I can't believe that anyone who has halogen bulbs yet runs their truck at night.  These are the worst factory headlights I have seen in my life,  I ordered my bulbs as soon as I got home from my first drive at night.  I am using the bulbs you have for lows in the high beam slot and I am using https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NPMV1H5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 for the lows, they seem to be a bit brighter than the sealight bulbs and the beam pattern was great so it doesn't blind people.

Ok i just want to make sure I am clear on the correct lights.  I have a 2021 Silverado LT Z71.  

 

For high beams: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NPMV1H5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

For low beams: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079KB7QX3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_gP6aGbT9E3SDS?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

 

Only reason I am questioning is because I have my truck saved on amazon and both of these lights throw up the "This does not fit your 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD" message.  Sounds like they do based on this thread, but wanted to verify I was looking at right lights.  And these are just plug and play right? No other mods needed for the lights?  Thanks everyone!

So my brother in law added LED's to his.  Gets high beamed constantly by opposing traffic since the LED light scatters in the non projector housings.  How are you guys aiming these to prevent that?  He aimed his way down but significantly reduced lighting distance.

Get the right led lights. The ones with the led chips in the center on the 2 sides like the beam tech, not the ones that have led chips all around them on 3 or 4 sides or have the sides further apart and not really thin.

You can buy either one of those for both the high and low beam. It is the same bulb type.

 

Everything is plug and play. You remove part in the inner fender liner and you can reach the back of the lights that way
