The LED bulbs are designed with the cutoff not the housing.


Got it... that makes sense. Do you know if you need any special harnesses or anything or are these true plug and play? Wasn't sure if you need additional stuff that doesn't come with the bulbs since these trucks weren't originally designed for LED headlights. Thanks for the reply MS03!

The bulbs that malbrecht1 used have a pigtail that plugs into the stock wiring, the ones I used have a ballast like a HID bulb

Make sure you measure so you know they will fit, most led bulbs are longer than a stock bulb

Today I installed LED headlights I bought on Amazon and LED DRLs.

Stock halogen on the left. New LED on the right.


Both LED headlights and DRLs


Night shot


The light output is 5 times better than the halogens that we in it. I am amazed at the difference. I would recommend these to anyone. Next I have to find some LED fog lights to match the 6500k color.

Were you able to get the blinker out without breaking the plastic clips

Just wanted to update everybody... I purchased the same LED bulbs as the OP and installed them. I have an 02 1500 Avy and they fit just fine. A little tight but no huge clearance issues or anything. They are amazing! Can't believe the difference driving at night. I also have a 34" light bar on the front and honestly, I can't tell much difference between when it is on or off now. They do have a decent cut-off, so not blinding any other drivers either  Thumbs up! I highly recommend these bulbs... now I need to do the brights as well because those puppies are dull!

Best to do that when they are warm!! If they are cold they will snap for sure.
Even if you have to take a hair dryer or heat gun to them for a minute or two.

Mine ended up breaking. I glued them back together but only one held up. The other side broke when I installed it, so I justed used a small piece of duct tape to hold the turn signal assembly in.
