pins and hinges were way nice! wish GM would have stuck to that.
Yes, the GMT-800 headlights are sooo nice and easy to remove...
However, from what Ive learned, GM had a lot of "quality concerns" and complaints with headlight fitment and fit/finish on the GMT-800's, which is why the made the GMT-900 headlights super clean-fitting and tight (and thus a PITA to remove).
From a "looking at it" standpoint, the GMT-800 design does look ridiculously cheap compared to the GMT-900's. The gaps and stuff around the headlights just gives a general "poor exterior fit/finish" statement.
Obviously it doesnt bother me (or 95% of other guys), but GM obviously felt that enough critics picked on it (IE, people who arent 'sold' on a GM, so they walk into a dealer to make a decision, see the 'poor' fitment on the headlights/grille and say "no I dont want a GM now because the exterior fit looks cheap"), thus the redesign on the GMT-900's.
Thats just what Ive been told...I mean it makes sense if you think about it...not that it bothers me personally and not that ive ever complained about it, but "TECHNICALLY", looking at it objectively, a $50k pickup truck/SUV "should" have a headlight/grille assembly that looks a little "tighter" and better put-together........if that makes sense.
And...how often are you really changing headlight bulbs anyway?
