Hey, guys, it's Sara with americantrucks.com. And today we have a review and install of the LED tail lights in black smoked, fitting your '14 to '18 Chevy Silverado 1500 without the factory LEDs. These are perfect for the Silverado owner who wants to upgrade their tail lights to an LED and wants a style upgrade as well with their modern design and black styling to give the rear of your truck that blacked-out look. These tail lights feature LEDs that will outlast the life of your factory bulbs and add some aftermarket style with their modern square design. They are constructed from durable smoked lenses with black plastic housings that are weather-sealed to keep out dust and moisture, and as far as the price goes, these come in at around $350 for the pair, which is middle of the road price-wise when compared to other options, and for your money, you do get an LED tail light with black styling and a modern design. 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 bolt-up and plug-and-play install with no modification required and can be done within one hour. So, with that said, let's check out the install. For this install, we used an impact gun, but a regular ratchet will work just fine. You'll also need a T15 Torx socket, a small flat head screwdriver, and a pop clip removal tool.So the first step in our uninstall, with your tailgate down, is to grab a T15 Torx socket and remove these two bolts. And, now, once both bolts are out, you can grab the tail light and pull it straight back towards you, and once you have that out, you can twist each of these bulbs in order to remove them. Now, we're underneath the truck, and we need to disconnect this wiring harness for our passenger side tail light. It's right next to the driver's side harness for that tail light. To do this, we're gonna pull back on the red tab, press down, and disconnect it, and while we're under here, you also need to find each of the pop clips that hold this harness to the truck and disconnect them. You can use a pop clip removal tool or you can disconnect the harness itself and repeat that until your harness is fully disconnected from the bed of your truck, and once that harness is disconnected from your truck, you can grab the top of it and pull it straight out of the truck. Now, at this point, we can start the install of our new tail light. We're gonna begin by routing the wiring harness down into the bed. Make sure it's following approximately the same path as the factory one that you just took out. Now, before we can get our tail light fully bolted up, we do need to mount these ballasts.What you need to do is peel the protective layer off of the double-side adhesive, and I'm gonna mount this a little bit out of the way, and I'm gonna make sure to stick it to metal because these tend to get a little bit warm. So I'm gonna go ahead and go right down the inside of the bed and stick it down. Make sure your surface is clean and dry and then go ahead and repeat that with the second one. Again, you can mount this wherever you like. I'm just gonna go right down into the bed here, and now that we have those mounted, we can plug them in to the white connectors on your light. Make sure they're pressed all the way in, and once those are connected, make sure all the wiring is routed properly, and we're gonna line these posts up to the openings in the bed, and once it's lined up, go ahead and press it in place. Now that your tail light is in place, go ahead and thread your factory bolts back in, and now with your T15 Torx socket, you can tighten it down. Now, do keep in mind, if you are using impact, just be careful so you don't strip out your factory bolts, and now we're gonna route our wiring harness underneath the truck along that factory path. It doesn't hurt to throw a few zip ties on there and then line up our passenger side connector and click it 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, and as you can see, the biggest difference is that dark smoked lens of our new tail light. When it's off, it'll give your truck that blacked-out appearance, and once your tail light is on, you'll see those high-powered LEDs, which will give your truck that much more modern look and outlast the life of your factory bulbs. So, with that said, we're gonna finish the install process by repeating all of those steps on the driver's side. And now that you've installed your driver's side tail light, that's gonna do it for the review and install of these tail lights. And remember, for all things Silverado, keep it at americantrucks.com.
