    Lighting inside and outside of the truck is a mod that's not all that expensive (less than $100 all together).. For a guy like me that just bought the truck and doesn't have the time/ money to put everything on at once, the lighting is a great place to start.. It really brings out the look and is very, very clean.. I have received nothing but compliments about the LEDs I have on my truck now and it makes a world of difference..

    All lighting is DIY with the hardest part being the headlight bulbs.. All can be done for less than $100 (besides headlight bulbs, I paid $250 for the pair Hi/Low Beam LEDs) and is one of he cheaper mods that you can do for a clean, badass look. I purchased some higher quality, more expensive headlight bulbs and I'm glad I spent the little extra on those.. Definitely recommend the LEDs!!

    They're called PlashLights, out of Texas.. They have a website, their specialty is LEDs of all kinds.. These headlights are badass

    Well that's what it said on the box.. But it's a pain in the ass just to exchange bulbs.. For the '15 models, I had to remove the grill and the painted inserts below just to get to my bulbs.. The only light that's easily accessible under the hood is the DRL/blinker.. But basically after to get to the bulbs, there's a little rubber gasket that you have to take off and a spring to release the light.. Then you can swap them out.. You have to trim the gasket though if you want to still be able to use around the LEDs.. I just cut mine for a snug fit, then mounted the ballasts on the inside of the sides of the engine bay, but as soon as you plug them in, they're good to go..

    Was gonna wait and take it to be done, but has some off time after work so I did it myself, I'm not really sure what the mechanic would have done with that gasket piece, but I kept them to be safe.. Probably saved my self $100 or more doing it myself.. Really not that bad, but took a little time and patience cause I didn't want to mess anything up

    I'm pretty sure you'll need the H11.. But I'd ask them to make sure.. No problem, good luck!

    It definitely adds a sharpness to your truck! I'm looking to do the same thing. Where did you get the interior and reverse led's from?

    I got them from autozone or advanced autoparts.. The domes were sylvania I believe.. They're like 50000 hrs or lifetime warranty or something, but a little more expensive for those.. About $10 a bulb.. But you can find the whole interior package on Amazon for much cheaper.. The same dome lights fit both the cargo light for the bed and the license plate lights

    I used that, then compared it to the manual...a few disconnects:
    - Thread says Bulb 168, Owners Manual says W5W
    - Thread says Bulb 9003, Owners Manual says HB2....etc

    I'm wondering if 168=W5W and 9003=HB2 etc. Kinda looking for a cross-walk of numbers. The OP says he got the H4 from Plashlights...trying not to confuse myself...just don't want to buy the wrong bulbs.
