Hey, guys. Joe from AmericanTrucks and today, we're gonna be working with the Chrome Crystal Headlights, fitting all '14 and '15 Silverado 1500s. Now, a headlight set like this is going to be perfect for any Silverado owner out there whose headlights might be a little bit faded or damaged or looking for a factory quality replacement set with subtle chrome accents all at an extremely budget-friendly price. These headlights are made out of factory quality plastics. They really give you that OEM style. We have the chrome housing behind the lens and a crystal clear lens right up front to ensure the most light output. These feature the amber markers on the side, just like the factory bulbs, we have that reflector housing for the low beam and the high beam here and they're gonna use the same H11 and 9005 bulbs that the factory housings would use. Now, just to note, those bulbs are not included, so you will have to transfer them over or buy new ones before you install these.Now, because of the factory build quality here, these are going to be DOT and SAE compliant. So, no matter what state you live in, these are always going to pass inspection. And like I said earlier, if your headlights are a little bit faded, a little bit worn out, they're not looking the greatest, maybe the chrome has peeled off a little bit on your factory headlights, these are gonna be a great option. You get to freshen up that lens if your lens is a little bit fogged up. This is going to be crystal clear, everything's brand new. This black plastic strip is faded. We're gonna put this next to the factory one in just a second and do a comparison and you'll see how much of an improvement just a brand new set of lights can really bring to the front end of your truck.Now, pricing is where things do get a little bit interesting. The pair of these is going to hover around 270 bucks. As far as the aftermarket goes, that is gonna be right in the middle for Silverado headlights. But here is the kicker. I called my Chevy dealership, I got transferred to the parts department. I asked him for a quick quote on what it would cost me to get OEM housings, both sides, brand new, and they quoted me a number that is frankly astronomical. $764.12 for each side, 1500 bucks for the pair. They're coming in right around that $270 mark and that is well worth the price. I've known guys before who want nothing but OEM stuff on their truck, but we're gonna put the two together here in a second. We'll let you compare the differences, a good replacement and still keep that factory look on the front of your Silverado.Install for these, not gonna be too bad either. Completely plug and play. And again, these do not come with bulbs, so you will have to buy new ones or transfer them over. But to get these installed, no wiring knowledge required. We do have to take apart the grille, but that's not as hard as it seems. I'm gonna give it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Should take you at most a couple hours to get these installed on your truck. So, without any further ado, let me show you what tools you'll need and how it's done.Tools required for this install are going to be an impact gun or a ratchet, small extension, trim panel removal tool, 10-millimeter wrench, we used a ratcheting wrench, 10-millimeter socket, and a 7-millimeter socket as well as a nitrile glove just to make sure the oils from your fingers do not get on the headlight bulbs when you transfer them over.So, in order to get our factory headlights out, we need to remove the grille to get to the hardware that actually holds it in. It's not as bad as it sounds. We're gonna start by removing this big plastic piece over top of our radiator. It's held in with 12 pushpins. I'm gonna use a trim panel removal tool to remove those. Now, we can take off the plastic cover and that's gonna reveal four 10-millimeter bolts on our grille across this front leading edge. So, now we have all the hardware out of the top of our grille, but there's still hardware on the bottom of our grille that we need to remove. And right off the bat, you can see what's in our way here, it's this blue body color piece. We need to get that off. It's held on with 17-millimeter screws, one right here on this fender and one on the other side. Then you can peel that piece off and remove the last four 10-millimeter bolts holding on the grille. Now, we can get under the edge of that body color piece and peel back. Should come right off the truck.So, now we have clear access to the four 10s along the bottom of the grille, there are slots for you to better find those. They are pretty deep in there, so you're gonna need at least a 6-inch extension to get to these. So, now our grille is just held on with some clips, we're gonna give it a firm pull toward us and it should pop right off. So, now we have a clear shot on all the 10-millimeter hardware that's holding our headlight to the truck, there's two up top, two on the bottom, but this one on the outside on the bottom is in a little bit of a tight spot, so we're gonna get that last one with a wrench. Now, we can gently pull on the headlight. It should pop right out. Then release the wiring harness just by pushing down that tab on the top, then we can pull it away.So, I have our factory headlight over here on your right and our new headlight over here on your left, we're just gonna swap over all the bulbs to our new headlight, then drop this in place. I'm wearing a glove for this step, you should probably too. You don't wanna get the oils on your fingers on the bulbs themself. That would cause them to burn out prematurely. To remove dust covers, just turn them counter-clockwise, that will release them. Same thing for the bulb. Then you could use that tab to release it and then come over to our new headlight. Once you have all the bulbs transferred over, you can come back to the truck, plug the headlight back in and secure it with the four 10s that we removed earlier. Now, as you probably saw me struggle, those seals can be a little bit tough when transferring over those bulbs just because they're brand new.So, with our new light fully installed on the driver side and the factory lights still on the opposite side, I figured now would be the perfect time to take a second, turn this on, test it out. And not only that but compare it to the other side and point out some of the key differences here. And the first and most obvious one, at least to me, is going to be just how much light the factory light, our new light is going to be. The plastics are just like factory, the quality of the lens over the light is just like factory, all the seals are nice and tight. Definitely no condensation going to get in there, so it's hard to convey it on camera, but with this in my hands, honestly, I feel like this is just up to par with the factory light in terms of build quality. On top of that, one last similarity, we're still using that 9005 bulb and the H11 just like the factory light did.So, as far as differences go, they are few and far between and very, very slight. As you could see, we're ditching that factory black housing look, we're swapping over to a chrome which lends itself nice to the Silverado front fascia as a lot of it is chrome. On top of that, we're also ditching the projector on the factory headlight for a more old school sort of reflector on this side for our low beam, that's just going to throw light in a wider direction. It's not gonna be as tight as that projector beam was. Now, one of the biggest differences here and what I think most people are gonna be interested in this for is just how much of refresher it can be to the factory look on the truck. The old light on the passenger side, it's been installed since the day this truck rolled off the assembly line. It's definitely seen some weather. The lens is a little bit faded, the black plastics are a little bit faded on our factory headlight. Get a nice clear lens. Make sure you're getting the most light output and really refresh the front end of your Silverado with something like this. So, without any further ado, let's remove the headlight on the passenger's side. We're gonna swap over all the bulbs and then get that installed in the same way, then button up the front of our truck.So, we're gonna do the same thing for the other side. We're gonna hit the three bolts that are easy to get to with the impact and the one that's not with the ratcheting wrench, then we're gonna pull this out slightly, release the tab on the harness and pull the whole headlight housing out. Now that we have the factory unit off the truck, we're just gonna transfer over all the bulbs. Again, wear a glove for this step. You don't want to get the finger oils on the bulbs themselves. Now, we can drop our light on. Give it a quick plug in here and secure it using the four 10-millimeter bolts we removed earlier.So, now our new headlights are completely installed, all that's left for us to do here is put our truck back to the way it was when we started. We're gonna pop the grille back on and secure it with the four 10s across the bottom. Now, we can put on this big body-colored piece and secure with the 7-millimeter bolts, one in each wheel well. Now, we're gonna secure the top of our grille here with the four 10s and then drop back in the plastic cover and secure that with the pushpins as well.And that is gonna do it for my review and install of the Chrome Crystal Headlights, fitting all '14 and '15 Silverado 1500s.
