I have a 2011 Chevy Tahoe. The headlights are obviously dim, yellow, etc. The covers (plastic) is very scratched. I’ve tried the cleaning kits, worked okay but not good enough. All in I need to completely replace the entire assembly with new LED lights. Can someone please give me some feedback on this. I don’t want any flickering, off and on stuff. I have a 2012 Jeep Wrangler. I converted these lights to a Quadratic LED version, they have been amazing. I’m sure Chevy has some trusted alternative like Jeep/Quadratic, I just haven’t found it. Thank you in advance.

Lots of good LED systems out there. For me, I use GTR Ultra 2 LED headlights. They are quite expensive, but they are guaranteed for life.

The most important aspect of using LEDs, by far, is the proper alignment of the LEDs upon installation. Buy only LED systems that are rotationally adjustable, so that you can achieve proper LED alignment.

The actual LED beam adjustment mechanism is different for different brands/models, but the instructions supplied with the LEDs (or an installation guide on their product web site) should guide you through the process.

Bottom line, the popsicle stick in the LED headlight holding the LED chips needs to be as close to vertical as possible, after installed and locked into place in the headlight housing, with the LED chips pointing to the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions. The photo of the guide below, while not for your specific brand/model, will give you a visual sense of how these LED headlights need to be positioned in a correct alignment within the headlight housing.

One other item to note is that aftermarket LED headlights are Federally illegal for street use. So, keep that in mind when you go for inspections. While 90+% of Inspectors probably won't be looking that closely, some will.
