Hey, guys, it's Sara with americantrucks.com. And today, we have a review and install the LED Tail Lights in Black, fitting your '19 and newer Chevy Silverado 1500 without the factory LEDs. These are perfect for the Silverado owner who wants to upgrade their tail light to an LED and wants a style upgrade as well with their black housings and additional LED accent bars. These black tail lights will provide better visibility thanks to their LEDs, and being an LED will outlast the life of your factory bulbs. They are constructed from clear polycarbonate lenses with black housings and bright red LEDs to give your truck a more modern look. Each of these tail lights are weather-sealed to keep out dust and moisture and are DOT and SAE-compliant, meaning they're legal for on-road use. So, as far as price goes, these tail lights come in at around at $450 for the pair, putting them about middle of the road price-wise when compared to other options. And for your money, you are getting an LED tail light with modern black styling. And as far as the install goes, I'm giving this one a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It does feature a direct plug-and-play and bolt-up installation that can be done within two hours. So, with that said, let's check out the install.For this install, we use an impact gun, but a regular hand ratchet will work just fine. You'll also need a T15 Torx socket, flat-head screwdriver, pop clip removal tool, and you may want a small flat-head as well. All right. So, the first step in our uninstall with the tailgate down, we're gonna remove two Torx bolts on the inside of the tail light. Grab a T15 Torx socket, and go ahead and get this removed. Repeat that for the bolts on the bottom. Then once both the bolts are removed, go ahead and grab your tail light and pull it straight back towards you to release it. Next up, what we're going to do is twist each of the bulb sockets out of your tail light. Now, this step is optional, but it will give you more room to remove the rest of the wiring harness. Go ahead and twist counter-clockwise and remove. Now, we're underneath of the truck and we need to disconnect the other end of the wiring harness. The one with the black connectors should be for that passenger side. So what we're going to do is pull back on the red tab. Might be a little bit hard for you to see because it's on the other side, and then push down on a tab just above it and pull back to release.Now, move along the wiring harness and release each of the pop clips holding it to the truck. Keep moving along your wiring harness, and using the pop clip removal tool, release each of the pop clips. Now we're back up to the top of the truck, and what we're gonna do is pop out this little bed light here. We need to disconnect a connector on the backside of it. And it's a little bit easier to pop this out rather than try to wrestle that connector. So with a flat-head on the backside, go ahead and pop it up. And once it's popped out, lean it forward and pull down. Now that it's out, you can see a little bit better. We're pushing up on this tab on the bottom here with a flat-head screwdriver to release it. And that is the tab that locks it up top. Once it's out, go ahead and grab a small flat-head screwdriver and pull back on that red tab, and then press down to release it. With that connector released, go ahead and grab the rest of your wiring harness and remove it off of your truck. Now to install our new tail light, go ahead and route the wiring harness through the opening and down out of the bottom of your truck. The same path that the factory harness takes.And then once that is fully routed, you can see the connector for the bed light, and that's what we're going to plug in next. Next up, route the smaller connector through the opening for your bed light. Then what we're gonna do is plug in the connector to the bed light, press down on that red tab, and now, we can line it up. Start by lining up the plastic piece with the top of the bed, and then it press the bottom part in. Now what we're gonna do is line up the tail light on the truck. There's metal posts at the top and the bottom, go ahead and line those up and then press the tail light into place. And now with the tail light in place, go ahead and reinstall the factory bolts. And then with your T15 Torx socket, tighten them down. Now, if you are going to use a power tool like we are today, just make sure that you don't overtighten these. Make sure you plug in your tail light underneath the truck. What we're doing is routing the connector and wiring along the factory route, line up your connector, and plug it in.You may want to throw a zip tie or two on the wiring just to make sure to hold in place. All right. Now that we have our factory tail light uninstalled from our truck, we can check it out side-by-side with our new tail light here. Now, as you can see, the most noticeable difference is the black styling and modern LED design of this tail light. It's great if you want to get rid of the red of your factory and upgrade to an LED in the process. So, with that said, you're going to finish up your install by repeating all of those steps on your driver side.And now that you've installed your driver-side tail light, that is gonna do it for the review and install these tail lights.
