Hi all. I'm on the lookout for any new type of headlight styles that look like the new GM trucks. These are the headlights I custom made, I painted the inside, tinted the turn signal, and put LEDs in all sockets. I disconnected the stupid halos:

They look good, but I've had them for a year and now I want ones to emulate the new style GM trucks.


Example:





I havnt found anything... or even any new housing that would allow me to add LEDs like the style of those lights. So far, the only new style I've found are these Anzo 11273 which I would paint body color and maybe update the LEDs. But I'm not sure if this style looks stuipd or not. Is anyone aware of any other options out there, or what are your opinions on these?

I personally really like those headlights and think they look slick. Would love to find something like that someday for my Ava

From what I've seen you've found the most recent. I think I'd personally like them better if they came from the side like the factory photos instead of the top. Couldn't you put am led strip in there lining the outside of the lens?

I have seen these in person. One thing I must say is that the halo during the day is not that bright. At night they look great. Personally they are not my taste as I like OEM looking with a twist. Thats why I did mine how I did. Will be remaking them though. However, if you want something that looks similar to the tube style led light maybe check out this product from LED concepts

http://ledconceptslighting.com/collections/led-components/products/switchback-flex-strip-white-amber

They have the switchback function which would be cool.

plus they are 24 inches long and can be cut to length. I like them and they are nice to work with but not bright enough for me.

Good luck anyhow man. Keep us updated.  (y)

I just installed the Anzo U-Bar headlights last night.  I think they're great.  The projectors are bright and accurate (though my roommate is still pushing me to do an HID conversion) and the high beams are like stock.  Low beams were even aimed almost perfectly out of the box.

Only issue I have at this point, though, is the u-bar ccfl-style (they look like each are 2 leds shone through a semi-clear frame or something.  looks like consistent light but when theyre off you can kinda see the setup) lights are only on when your low beams are on.

I'm going to try to wire them to the DTRL, but I'm not sure how to do that lol.  Gonna take some investigation, because I can't find a schematic of what wires are what on those lights.  Otherwise I think they're sick.  I slapped in my old turn signal lights as DTRLs and they're great.

I'll try to get some pics up this afternoon after work.

Kaczman,
Are those the Spyder 's ? and are they LED or the CCFL Halo's (The CCFL's are a lot brighter I have heard)and were there any "gap" issues?  I saw a set installed on an 07  in a Shopping Mall near me and there was a pretty noticeable gap on the side by the fender...  ?  That is the only thing holding me back from ordering them.

Spyder has a newer style of LED headlight for AV.  I bought a pair of the older popular style(not really OLD) with the HID upgrade and CCFL Halos from a company on ebay. Got them and when I installed them , there was a gap on both fenders (about 1/2") :E: I know that some people have had issues with that but they assured me if the fenders were never "repaired" that they would fit....... NOT!!  
Long story short, due to work issues, I waited to install them so it passed my 60 days but there was another pair I liked so they are going to send me those out and credit my PayPal $25 and told me to keep the HID set up for the trouble.

Here is the link for the new lights:

BTW- I also ordered a set of upgraded Mini H1 Projectors from TRS and the Spyder brackets (got them both on closeout for $40) my buddy installed these on his RAM with the Spyder lights and it is night and day difference with vision at night!
Here is the link for the Projectors: (you may have to call them for the brackets.

Did you receive these yet? I'm interested to see what they look like and how they line up. I'm planning on getting projector lights soon.

I got them on Monday, just put them in yesterday!  They are REALLY nice (y) (y) (y) (y)
The light output is awesome compared to the stock Fogs with an LED 5202 bulb and the cutoff line is really crisp!.
I am uploading pics and will post them shortly.  Installation was a breeze. It took more time to take the fender screws out then it did to install these. Aslo...

**NOTE** make sure you mark where your thread is on the adjustment wheel with each of the fog light clips. I forgot to do it on the first one and had to go back and re adjust the light :E:

FYI
I would love to do the ANZO's but I don't have an extra $400-$500 to shell out.....  :(

Between my Spyder LED Tails and Headlights, I am still under 400 (with the TRS upgraded Projectors)

Just got them yesterday, gonna put them in this weekend , I have an HID set and my switchbacks. I'm gonna see how they are with the stock projectors and if the beam is not good then replace the projectors with the Morimoto H1's and Spyder adapter bracket from TRS I ordered. I'm hoping that I won't have to !

If anyone on this thread has an idea about how I can post pics , please let me know either here or send me a PM. I would love to post what I'm doing to my AV
