WHATS WITH THAT?: With the HD version of the 15-19 Silverado, you pay more, and you’re supposed to get more of everything, right? Wrong. Why GM puts the “old” version of the headlights on the Heavy Duty trucks doesn’t really make sense. Morimoto has just the fix for you with the new XB LED Silverado headlights, just reach into that pocket once more! At least this time, you’ll pay for what you get.
FACE LIFT: The design of the Morimoto XB LED heads for the Silverado HD was inspired by look of the OEM 16-18 Silverado 1500 headlights with the LED Daytime running light and honestly… if you didn’t know any better, these things could pass for OEM, but with a few more features. The LED daytime running light is powered by Osram 5000K LEDs and is insanely bright, easily visible during the day… that daytime running light will also dim down when the parking lights or low beams are on for compliance reasons.
JUST BELOW THAT: The trademark sequential turn signal that we’ve grown to love on so many of the other models in the Morimoto lineup. If you’re not a fan of the sequential effect, no problem. You can run the blinker in standard mode too. All wrapped upside a gloss black housing, these things would be a killer aesthetic upgrade for any truck… but the real beauty here is that it’s not ALLLLL about looks. These things are quite functional too.
QUAD BI-LED: The Morimoto XB LED headlights for the 16-18 Silverado HD come standard with two high-output Bi-LED projectors per headlight. Yes, that’s a total of 4x low beams and 4x high beams to illuminate the road ahead. Thanks to their uniquely shaped projector lenses paired with modern optics within, they’re going to perform even better than they look. The full LED low and high beam are an instant upgrade over stock, with a wider, brighter low beam, and a high beam that will penetrate far into the distance with ease. To top it all off, these optics meet & exceed all SAE, DOT standards when aimed properly, which is easy to do with their integrated aiming adjusters.
WELL BUILT: Their UV-coated polycarbonate lens will resist the test of time, ensuring your truck’s new headlights will look good as new for many years to come. The PPS plastic housing is light-weight and much stronger than comparable alternatives. The die-cast aluminum heat-sinks inside the housings provide more than an adequate amount of cooling for the OEM grade LED chips that produce the light.
WE GET IT: If you’ve got a 16-18 Silverado HD, your headlight game is weak compared to the OEM setup on the 16-18 trucks, which is why you guys have been asking for these for a long time. The XB’s deliver the DRL you demand. The sequential signal you’re seeking. The low beam performance you love, and a high beam to hail. These lights come available with optional black or chrome front trim bezels too. If you want to paint match them to the grille on the front of your Silverado, the black trim is recommended.
