I have not had a single error since installation. I was told the listing would be up on the site today but if you don't want to wait any longer send them an email or call the number on the site. He told me he had already had someone reach out and he had sold a set. Hopefully it's listed by the end of the day.

i love the set up. But that 200 degree temperature in the relay gives me pause

I can't remember where I found it but I believe operating temperature on these resistors is up to 315 degrees. The heat of the resistors was the whole point of the idea to locate them under the bumper. The 230 degree reading was with the vehicle sitting in reverse with the parking brake set so it wouldn't be normal to stay in reverse that long.

How long was it in reverse to get to the 230 degree mark?
You may not know the answer to this next question.
How are the Yukon’s rear lights wired in? Would they simply plug into the Chevy harness or do they have additional resistors too?

I don't remember how long it was in reverse but the Yukon lights are full LED. The issue is programming. The Yukons are meant to have LED so the computer looks for appropriate voltages. The Tahoe's are meant to have incandescent bulbs so the computer looks for that appropriate voltage. The ideal solution would be a reprogram of the computers but the new architecture of the electronic systems is encrypted and so far isn't reprogrammable. If you want error free LED tail lights on a Tahoe or suburban this is the only solution to my knowledge.

It's still not up on their website yet.
