    I'm looking to get a set of replacement low beam headlight bulbs. I want better than OEM, but I still want to be able to install them same as OEM bulbs. What's your recommendations ? Since I can't get around the Coronavirus I'd like to be able to see a little better in the dark. Thank you !

    It should be RECOMMENDED that every new member post all that in their signature. Plus engine size and trans and even gears.

    Guilty as charged. It a 2015 Chevy Tahoe LT as pictured. Am looking for a 'Better' set of light bulbs. Not sure if Halogen or LED is the way to go, wondering your recommendations. I did a search first and found nothing.

    Thank you !

    Imo led has a much cleaner, brighter beam. Depending on what temp(kelvin?) bulb you get--whiter too.

    Will they operate under the existing wiring, or do they need a special addition ?

    I'm not familiar with the newer generations, as I have an 03. With mine, it does come with a ballast box. I just plugged everything in and it works great. I was just giving my opinion on led bulbs in general. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable with your year Hoe will chime in.

    I second LED replacements - night and day difference from stock halogen bulbs. Also, they’re plug and play with no extra pieces to mount; and you don’t have to wait for them to warm up like HID’s.

    Check out v-leds.com and enter your vehicle info. They’ll let you know what options there are for your truck.

    I converted to all LEDs, inside and outside, on my 07. I used LEDs supplied by JDM Astar, and I did not have to modify a single thing on any of them, except for the fog lights. All LEDs fit into the stock housings and used the same stock electrical plugs to connect.

    The difference between the LEDs and the stock halogen bulbs in terms of brightness and field of coverage is huge.

    And, even with the fog lights, the modification was to remove a small plastic in the body's light fixture housing, to allow the LED to fit snugly into the housing, and the modification is not visible.
