    None yet but plenty to come.
    So all videos I have seen thus far to replace the bulbs on 3rd Gen models I need to remove the grille and the panel below the headlight. Is this 100% the case?

    I ask cause my Silverado I had some vendors told us to remove the bumper corners and I was able to do w/o that.

    Any luck?

    Also i just got the truck ('16 used) and there is a box in the glove box called Truck DNA....what is this?

    @Mootball if you’re going to replace the headlight bulbs you def have to remove the grille. Ask me how I know. If you’re just doing the turn signals and you have smaller hands you can probably change those out w/o removing the grille.

    I don’t know what DNA is. Sorry

    None. Keeping this one stock.
    You can get at it via the mud liner, but it's a giant PIA compared to taking the grill off.

    Taking off the grill is not as scary or difficult as it seems. The bulbs are a very easy job. Use ole Gunny Google and YouTube and it will put your mind at ease. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Close enough! It’s not hard at all. I’d recommend getting a few extra push clips in case you break a few.
