Anzo headlight install
1st post here, but I've been combing this forum for little while. i just wanted to share my thoughts on the ANZO headlight and 3rd brake install.
first off, thank you all for posting the "how tos" on here, it really helped me with the bumper removal.
i picked up my truck the 25th of Feb after trading it in. black LT duramax. I've been chomping at the bit to make this truck more unique and mine.
the Anzo head lamps look and work really great. fitment is OEM quality, and its as simple as plug and play. i have not tested them out at night so ill follow up with that.
the Anzi 3rd break lamp is not up to the same snuff. After i cut off some tabs, i eventually got a good fit. I'm not sure if there is any different between the '16 that this is made for, and my '17. also, the black tint makes the tail light lamp pretty weak. i asumed they would add a higher watt bumb but looks like they didnt.
the bumper removal honestly gave me a micro panic attack. i started around 3pm, and was told by the base auto port rep. that he was closing at 5. this was at 4 and i just removed every nut but hadn't pulled it off yet. i managed to remove and add the anzos, then had to leave her for the morning. I snapped 1 screw off that holds the cover in-place that separates the under carriage from the inner components. I'm not to sure if that will end up being an issue on re install. going forward after the removal of the bumper, i instantly wished i had another person to help, and a soft area to lay the bumper on. chevy bowtie took a small one for the team.
Monday i bring the truck in for the rest of the LPOs to be installed that came with the truck. side steps, rain guards, mud flaps and black bow ties. I'm assuming chevy will have to take the bumper off again to install the black bowties, so my only saving grace is that if i reinstall it incorrectly, they will fix my errors, or maybe assume they did something wrong and replace any small thing i broke/break.
wish i could upload pics but i guess theyre to big?
thanks all for the information and tutorials you guys post.
