Your Silverado’s stock headlight panel is a four-piece design, featuring a low-beam, high beam, turn signal, and fog light. Newer Silverado 1500 models (2016 to 2018) feature factory fresh LED bulbs that yield far more luminosity than its predecessors. Of course, your stock LED bulbs can still be improved with an HID conversion kit, LED Dayliner strip, or halo ring add-ons for even more visibility while driving.
For older generation Silverados (2007 to 2015), GM unfortunately didn't make any improvements to their factory headlight setup. Silverado low beams use a H11LL bulb, 9005LL bulbs for high beams, and 5202 bulbs for fog lights. The H11 low beam kit for these Silverado models represents the lowest quality and cheapest kit available.
While that's not necessarily a bad thing, most Silverado owners will not receive the luminosity and brightness they need out of their headlights. There are plenty of HID and LED H11 kits available to upgrade existing stock bulbs, or even complete LED and HID conversions that offer far more capabilities and durability than the H11 bulb series.
While your Silverado's high beam and low beam halogens will get the job done, they’re rather plain looking and they can only produce up to 1200 lumens on average. At AmericanTrucks we offer aftermarket lighting kits reaching beyond 2500 lumens as well LED truck headlights that run for over 50,000 hours. Here we're going to discuss some aftermarket upgrades to your Silverado’s headlights that can give it a stylish, sophisticated look and greater visibility while driving.
