Hey, guys. So, today we're checking out the Morimoto XB LED Headlights with the Black Housing and the Clear Lens, fitting all 2014 to 2015 Silverado 1500s. So, if you are currently having some issues with your factory headlights, maybe they're not strong enough, they're not providing you the visibility that you're looking for out of your headlights, and you're looking for a solid quality upgrade, this choice by Morimoto is going to be a great option to take a look into. Now, this is going to be a premium choice for somebody who is looking for something that is going to have all the bells and whistles, and kind of bring everything as far as quality and functionality to the plate. Now, this is going to have a full LED setup, you're gonna have a projector lens at both the high beam and the low beam making sure that not only your lighting is significantly brighter than the factory, but it's also going to have a more uniform light pattern and look a lot cleaner. Again, increasing your visibility while you're driving at night, which is gonna be great if you're currently struggling with that.Now, not only is this going to just help you out with lighting performance, this is also gonna make you more noticeable while you're driving around in the street with the daytime running light that is going to be LED daytime running light. And you're also going to have those amber marker lights over on the side. Now, those again are going to make you stand out while you're driving around the street, keeping you a little bit safer, but they're gonna assist in the styling of these headlights, and the black housing is gonna do that as well. Now you're gonna have a black inner housing and a black housing on the front which is gonna go great with any other black accessories you already have on your Silverado. Or if you're looking to match with any other black accessories or have that blacked-out or matted-out appearance to the front end of your Silverado, these are going to do a really good job at complementing that.Now, when it comes to pricing, these are going to be the premium choice in the category coming in at $1,250. And again, that is because of the quality of construction and it's also the quality and the functionality of these lights. Again, these are going to be fully LED, a lot of other options available in the category are not gonna be fully LED, they may integrate some LEDs into the lighting. However, a lot of the time the projector lens is going to be backed up with a halogen bulb instead of the LED that you see in here. Now, this is gonna have a very high lumen output in comparison to some other options, again, which is going to bump the price up on this and is also going to just overall have a very solid construction. Some other options available on the page may not come with a trim cover on the front, they may just come with the lens as to where this is going to be two separate pieces. So, overall, I think if you're looking for a premium choice, you're looking for something that's going to last a very long time, get the job done and look good while doing it, then this is gonna be a great option to take a look into.Now, when it comes to install I'm gonna give this a pretty easy two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, I'm gonna give it a two because we do have to take off a couple of components in order to get to the headlights themselves. However, these are going to be plug-and-play, no splicing or cutting is involved. So, speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. Tools that I used for my install were an impact wrench, a clip removal tool, a pair of needle-nose pliers, a Phillips head screwdriver, 10-millimeter socket and a 3-inch extension. So, the first step of this install is to get our radiator cover out of the way. Now, this is gonna be held in by a number of different clips. So, I'm gonna take a pop clip removal tool or a trim removal tool, then we can take all those out. So, once all the clips are removed, what we can do is just pull up, get this out of the way. Next we can remove the hardware that's holding in the top of our grille. I'm gonna use a 10-millimeter socket to remove the four bolts that are holding it on.So, in order to access the bolts on the bottom of the grille, we will have to remove this upper bumper trim piece here, now, it's held in by hardware on either side and the inner wheel well area. I'm gonna use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove this, depending on if you have factory hardware or not, it may be a little bit different. So, once that's removed and you've completed the other side as well, what we can do is just pull on this and we can fully remove this lower trim piece. Now, just like the top of the grille, we're gonna have four 10-millimeter bolts holding it in at the bottom as well. However, these are a little bit recessed or a little bit deeper into the grille. I'm gonna use a 10-millimeter socket that we used before but I'm also gonna use a 3-inch extension to reach the bolts and remove them. They may be a little bit difficult to see but they are in each cutout in the lower plastic portion of the grille. So, the grille is still held and my a couple metal clips, so we're just gonna give it a good pull back and fully remove the grille.Now that we have access to all of our headlight bolts, we can start with the one on the bottom corner that was underneath the upper bumper trim here. So, there's gonna be a 10-millimeter bolt, I'm gonna use a 10-millimeter socket. Now, there is a metal piece here that helps that bumper trim go into place, so this may be in the way, if you can't get an angle on it with a socket, I would recommend a 10-millimeter ratcheting wrench. Then there's gonna be one on the front here that was underneath our grille, I'm gonna still use that 10-millimeter socket to remove that. Last but not least, there's gonna be two bolts up on top, I'm gonna use that same 10-millimeter socket to remove them. Now we can pop our headlight out of place by pulling it forward and disconnecting the main wiring harness on the back just by depressing that clip and pulling back. It may be a little bit difficult to see because it was pitched in the back of a headlight, but all you need to do is unplug this main wiring harness.So, before we hop into the inside, I wanna step down and tell you guys a little bit more about these new headlights, show you next to the factory ones on the table, give you guys a little comparison and show you some of the similarities and the differences between the two. Now, starting off is just a brief overview of our factory light. As you can see, this is going to have chrome trim on the front and it's also gonna have a chrome housing look, it's gonna give you a very stock and classic look. Now, on the inside we're gonna have a factory projector lens with a halogen bulb and we're also going to have the high beam as the factory incandescent bulb. We're also going to have a reflector down there as just a standard setup. Now, overall that's gonna be great for stock applications. However, if you are having trouble with the lighting and visibility at night, that's probably due to the scattered halogen bulb, and it comes out of the factory. They're great for stock performance, but they're not great when it comes to looking for better lighting performance as you'll see in just a second with our new headlight.Now, over on the side we're going to have our turn signals, these are pretty big amber reflectors. Again, very stock setup, it's gonna give you stock styling, and it's also just going to give you some pretty okay performance when it comes to the lighting. Now, moving over to our new option that is not going to be the case. As you can tell this is not only going to have a sleek and stealthy look because of the black trim, the gloss black trim should I say and also the gloss black housing in the inside but it is going to be a big step up in lighting performance as well. Now as we saw with our factory light, we had a projector lens at the low beam. Now, with our new light, this is gonna have a projector lens at the low beam and the high beam and they are going to be full LED. That headlight itself is going to be full LED which is going to be incredibly brighter. So, giving you better lighting performance while you are driving at night, and better visibility while you're driving at night.These are also going to be a lot more uniform as far as light pattern is concerned because of the projector lens. It's going to be a lot farther in distance in comparison to a factory reflector, especially for that high beam which is very important for visibility. Not only that but the LED inside is going to have a cooler color temperature so it's going to look a lot more modernized and cleaner in comparison to the factory incandescent which usually has a more amber or yellowish hue to it. Now, like I said this is also going to have other components in it that are fully LED. The marker lights or turn signals are over at the side. They will be a little bit more profile and smaller than at the factory ones that you see in the factory headlight. It's gonna add a sleek look but they still are gonna be very noticeable while you're driving around the street. Now, what I do really like about this is the fact that this is going to come with a daytime running light in comparison to our factory one which does not. This is going to be full LED, it's going to be two light bars in the middle. That is not only going to add a lot of styling to the headlight, but it's also gonna make you more noticeable while you're driving around on the street.Overall, I think that this is a good setup when it comes to the overall quality of the headlight, you can see that that is definitely there. And it is going to give you that better lighting performance that you're looking for, and a lot better styling. And it's also completely plug-and-play, as you'll see in a minute. So, why don't we go ahead and install our new light. So, now that we have our headlight wired up before we can pop it in the place and secure it down we do have to pop our trim on. Now, this is just going to hook into two tabs on the back and it's going to lay over the front of the headlight like this. There is a couple of strips of 3M tape that we have to peel. So, I'm just going to peel the protective backing off. So, now that that is peeled off, what we can do is hook the ends, little tabs in place. So, once we have the trim piece laying over, what we can do is kind of pull it into place and get this lined up. There are three posts, one on the top, one on the bottom, and one on the inside that we have to line up so we can secure it down.I'm just gonna flip the headlight over. We can take our provided screws and a Phillips head screwdriver, secure them down. Now, once those are all secure, what we can do is tuck our wiring up into that tray there and we can secure it down with the factory hardware. Then we can tighten them down with that 10-millimeter socket. After that's complete, we can repeat that process on the other side, and then we can put our front and back together. What we can do next now that both headlights are installed is pop our grille back into place. We're just gonna line it up and give it a good push, then we can secure the top with the factory hardware. Tighten them up with our 10-millimeter socket. Now we can pop in this trim piece. This is just the upper bumper filler, gonna line up on either side. We have to go back and forth and clip it into place. Then we can secure it down on both sides with the Phillips head screw that we removed earlier.Last but not least, after we place our radiator cover in place, we can secure it down with all of the factory clips. After all of those are in you close up your hood, and you're all set to go. So, that is going to wrap it up for my review and install.
