Thank you for the kind words. I used the thread in the DIY sticky to source out all the LEDs. I will say that it was a pain in the *** and I had to reorder a couple bulbs because it wasn't as specific; i.e. example the license plate bulbs have to be small to fit in the space for the housing to lock properly. For the most part it is spot on. Some of the items can be a pain in the *** to reinstall such as the trunk mat on the trunk lid where it is cut to fit around the light and emergency handle. To put the handle and light back through is a headache.

Good luck if you do change all the bulbs out! It's not hard, just tedious lol.

I have some peeps in ATL, I will also be in Ga from Feb-May for school in Augusta. I'll be in ATL here and there too. Think I'll be starting my build then, and finishing in NY when I get back there. Then I return to Ga in July for the month for leave. Maybe catch you at a show or two if you attend any of those.

Thought I Would Update Everyone With My HID Foglight Install. Kit From XenonDepot Was An Easy Plug And Play. Color Of Bulbs Are Almost Identical To The Headlights.

And My Newest Pickup Is A Roof Spoiler That Many On The Forum Recommended. Sprayed Black Onyx And Shipped To My Door For $90. I'll Probably Wait Until It Warms Up Some Since It's Colder Than The Recommended Install Temp.

I meant to ask you.... do you have a solution for replacing the DRL 9005 bulb so that I am still able to retain the hi-beam? Can't seem to find a concrete solution. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi,


You can use our 30W CREE 9005 LED bulbs - you would need to select the "DRL" option in the high beams. Keep in mind though that these bulbs are purely cosmetic. Upgrading your DRL/High beam bulb to LED will look great, but not really be a functional upgrade.

Yeah DRLs are pointless anyways lol. Who needs lights on during the daytime anyways haha. Do these bulbs need resistors or any special wiring?

Well DRL lights were designed as a safety feature to increase the conspicuity of the vehicle during daylight conditions. You need to select the select the "DRL" option when ordering to get a set of Capacitors for the LEDs to work with your Daytime Running Lights.

You're welcome man! The grille looks great on your car. The roof spoiler and visors should look great too.
