Default Recommendations for Headlights for 2017 Chevy HD

Has anybody done a headlight/bulb upgrade on a Chevy HD? I have a 2017 Chevy HD and the headlights are terrible. I was looking into a HID conversion but wanted to see if anyone else out there had some recommendations. Thanks.

Can I ask why do you want to blind oncoming traffic? I have a 17 and they seem bright enough. I guess I'm just getting old

Seriously....I checked because I wondered the same. They are both working but projector lights are just a bit different from the Fords I have owned. My neighbor has the GMC Sierra HD that come standard with HID lighting, my Chevy HD High Country did not.

Do you have projectors on your low beams?

Same truck, same issue. They are no where near bright enough, and country roads with hills are the worst. Especially in deer country

I canít remember which models come with the projectors.

These guys can fix you up.

Www.retroshop.us

I just bought projectors and HIDs for my 2012 Ram. Bought a turn key package with all plug & play harnesses.

Donít waste your money on cheap kits. The failure rate is high and gets very frustrating. Been there, done that.

Thanks Mike D, I will definitely give them a look. Did you do the installation yourself. I saw many good things about Headlight Revolution online but wanted a closer to home review. Thanks
