    Recently got a new to me ‘17 Tahoe LT. The daytime running lights are the halogen projectors. I’ve seen most all other Tahoe’s have the LED strips as their DRL’s. My question is this - can this be changed, or is it year/trim specific?
    I dont’t know if it matters, but, mine is an LT, Leather, 2nd row Captains, and the Luxury package. I DO NOT HAVE the HiD’s though.
    Any info / help is appreciated!

    Check the Exterior section. There is a HOW-TO on this

    HID's can not dim like normal bulbs, so the trucks with HID get the led strip. Not sure what is involved but if you do a search you will find some owners that took their lights apart to add this, but it didn't seem simple

    Its a model year thing, yes, the HID cant dim.. but my 2019 does not have HID and it has the LEDs. I think 2018+ they changed it. either way. just follow the sticky in the other forum and you should be able to do this.
