So if you own a '14 to '15 Silverado and you want arguably the coolest and most modern looking headlights currently available, you should be checking out these projector headlights with these very cool daytime running lights and LED light bars from Axial. I'm personally a big fan of these for a few reasons, number one being the fact that they have a blacked out housing. These ditch all the factory chrome which in some people's opinion is a little bit flashy. I'm a fan of the understated look myself. What's nice about that is it gives use almost a smoke finish here but the lens itself is clear so you won't have any visibility issues. Other thing that I really like about this setup here is it is a factory setup. There's no custom wiring required. This reuses the factory pigtail harness for a plug-and-play connection. So the install is pretty straightforward, gets an easy one out of three wrenches on my patented difficulty meter. You should actually be able to get these installed in about an hour or two in the driveway with basic hand tools. So if you like the way these look, go ahead and stick around. I'm actually gonna show you that install step by step. For this install, you will need the following tools: a quarter inch drive ratchet with an eight millimeter socket, a three-eights drive ratchet with a 10 millimeter socket, a long extension, a Philips head screwdriver, and a flathead screwdriver or a small pry tool. Optional but helpful tools include a cordless impact. Now, before we remove our factory headlights, we have to remove some pieces from our truck. First, we have to remove this plastic trim piece above the front bumper. On either side of this trim piece, there's a plastic rivet holding it in place as well as an eight millimeter bolt. Now that hardware has already been removed from our vehicle. So once you've done that, you're gonna have to crawl underneath. There are some plastic retainers that are actually keeping this on as well. All right. Now that we have that little plastic trim piece removed, we're gonna have to remove our grille. To access the hardware for the grille, you have to pull your radiator cover. It's helpful to have a flathead screwdriver so you can remove these plastic pushpins. All right. With radiator cover removed, you can remove your grille. To do that, you're gonna need a 10 millimeter socket for the four bolts on the top. You have two bolts on the bottom, one on either side. All right. So once you pull the bolts securing the grille to the vehicle, there are two retaining clips still holding the grille in place. Those are plastic clips. So you wanna take care when removing them. Just apply gentle pressure to either side of the grille. You'll hear the pop and they'll release and then you can pull the grille from the vehicle. All right. With our grille out of the way, we can start removing our headlights. There are four 10 millimeter bolts holding each headlight in place, two on the top and two on the bottom. You need a 10 millimeter socket to remove those. Now with the housing bolts removed, go ahead and gently pull the headlight away just enough to access the connector on the back for the wiring harness. Once you can reach that with your hand, go ahead and unplug it and then you can completely pull the headlight from the vehicle. All right. Once you got one headlight removed, we're gonna go ahead and do the same thing for the other side. So before we install our new headlights, quick tabletop comparison here so you guys can really see the differences and similarities up-close. One of the things I really like about Axial's new headlight here is it ditches all that flash and chrome. It looks a little bit busy in my opinion. I'm a fan of understated looks, I think this look does a really good job of pulling that off. Other thing that I really like about this is it actually makes the high beam deflector a little smaller. It's just another way to get rid of some of that chrome and some of that shininess. Then the last thing that stands out here obviously you got the daytime running LEDs. I think those are gonna look really cool. You can run those day or night. And what's nice about that is you don't have to do any custom wiring. This does use a factory connection, so there's no splicing or soldering required, just a simple pigtail harness like the factory connections. So without further ado, let's go ahead and throw these on. Shall we? So before we throw the headlights onto the truck, we have to install this little plastic retainer here. This is what's gonna hold on that original plastic trim piece above the front bumper. To do that, you're gonna need a Philips head screwdriver, really easy, just pull these screws off, set this in place and then tighten it back down. All right. So like I said earlier, this does reuse the factory connection with a pre-wired harness. All you gotta do is plug it into the factory connection like the one we pulled out earlier. Then once you have everything connected, you can put the headlight in place and tighten it down with those four 10 millimeter bolts that we removed earlier. All right. Once both of your headlights are plugged in, go ahead and make sure they're functioning properly. Make sure the connection is seated all the way on both pigtail harnesses. Once you've verified they're working, you can throw your grille and your rad cover back on. Now, when you throw your grille on again, be careful with the plastic retainers down here. Go ahead line those up, pop those in, and then tighten the grille back down with those 10 millimeter bolts that we removed earlier. All right. So with your grille and your rad cover in place, you can reinstall the painted plastic trim piece above the front bumper. Line up all the plastic retainers and clips, push those in, and secure either end with that eight millimeter bolt and that plastic fastener. So as you can see, thanks to that plug-and-play design this is a very straightforward install. And on that note, that actually also wraps up my review of the black projector headlights with the light bar daytime running lights from Axial fitting your '14 to '15 Silverado. I'm Travis.
