I had issues getting the drivers side in more then the passenger side. This is a 1500 as well so it may be a little different. I did a lot of cussing before I managed to get them in and hands looked like they were fighting with a meat grinder. I can take pictures of a light next to a tape measure if it would help.

They are redesigning them as we speak. Nick said they should be in, in 2'ish weeks. So we will see if they are different.

I am waiting on the 5000k fogs so I can order both.

StephenS i need more pics please. What trimming did you need to do?
give me a little bit and I can get you pictures of the front. sadly I didn't take pictures of the back before I reinstalled but its really not difficult at all. purchase the rigid flush mount brackets for the 2014-2015 GMC 1500's.

1. pull your whole fog assembly
2. trim the fog light bracket out of the assembly
3. line up the rigid flush mount brackets and dremel out a little line for the flush mount bracket to fall into.
4.mount front piece of rigid bracket to fog light assembly
5. drill the back rigid bracket about an inch up from where the original mounting holes are. mount rigid dually or d2
6. put the 2 brackets together and mount the fog light assembly back into the truck.

Just wanted to thank RayandPaula and smokeyou for the installation write ups and information regarding the Morimoto Hid kit.:drink

I pretty much followed Rays instalation instructions to a T except I took the driver side battery out for easier installation of the Hid bulb.

I bought the Sierra spec 4300k Hid kit, I wish the HD harness to the passenger side was 6-12" longer. The wires coming out of the Hid light "grommet" could of been 6-12" longer for better mounting options. A few other things could be improved but overall the construction of the harness and plugs is better than some oem wiring.


Overall I cannot belive the light output compared to the stock halogen lights, day and night difference. To all that is questioning the purchase of this kit, I wouldn't hesitate whatsoever. Worth every penny :neener

I just installed mine today.. i actually took my headlights out and the front grill off and everything.. probably didn't need to but made routing and stuff much easier... Also mounted a 52" light bar on the roof. Just didn't have the time to finish the wiring in the cab.. So i will get that done tomorrow and post some pictures.

Definitely wind noise... I read a bunch about it and it is pretty loud. I'm not getting a whistle or anything just pretty good turbulence style wind noise. Once i break around 45-50mph... ill make a few adjustments and keep testing it.. I will get some pics soon.. we are going to finish the wiring tomorrow and my truck needs to be washed bad with all this snow and salt kicking up off the roads.

Is anyone running 55w HIDs in the GMC projector headlights? I have a 2015 and ordered the 55w. Kinda picked that on accident now im worried about melting the housings. Should I exchange the ballasts for 35w (id have to cover shipping back and forth)?

I personally wouldn't risk running the 35w, but that's because I don't feel like shelling out $6-800 for a new headlight. 35w will be more then enough as is.

Yeah i got that feeling from looking around here and some other forums. $15 or so on shipping is a hell of a lot cheaper, and easier, than having to get new housings. I shipped them back a little while ago. Hopefully their customer service is quick.
