    Thumbs up Just Finished My Custom Headlights! 2008 GMC Sierra

    Hey Guys,

    Just had a buddy of mine do some custom headlights for me! Here is what I had done to them:

    -Reflectors removed
    -LED Side markers
    -LED Switchbacks (The amber looks more red and it looks SICK!)
    -LED Halo's
    -Wireless remote system

    With the remote system, I can make them dim in and out constantly, strobe and control how bright I want them.

    I am in LOVE with the new look guys. CHECK IT OUT!

    AFTER





    More pictures in my album.
    Will update with night shots later on.
    Let me know what everyone thinks!

    NICE!!
    Those are really, really nice! I'm envious. I have had bad luck with my rear LEDs I'm hesitant of doing this up here in Ontario.
    Finally a signature and Avatar! I also posted some pics in the Gallery.

    You need to make a step-by-step. I want aftermarket headlights but can't justify $250-350 for them.
    Sometimes the best part of my job is that my chair swivels.

    Thanks fellas.

    @Jake: Sorry to hear that man, I just had em done about 3 darts ago and I've passed AT LEAST 25 cops. AT LEAST. And I have not had one problem yet. *knocks on wood*. I guess they're not strict here in LA.

    @Pikey: I will have the night shots up either Monday or Tuesday when I have access to my work computer. Stay tuned bro!

    @wolf: I can try to make but I didn't do my headlights myself. I payed my buddy $660 for my set up but you can get everything you'd need for less. Everything I have is from oraclelighting.com. you can get a halo kit for $200, switchbacks for $25 each, sidemarkers for $15 each (I think), and a wireless remote system for $70 or so. So it's not much as I payed for but I didn't want to mess anything up and he has done many many jobs like this so he knows what he's doing lol. Id imagine it's not that hard though.

    @Surreal: Yes he does. I'll be going back to him for future mods.

    Stay tuned early next week for night shots fellas!

    Rick Hendricks here carries or at least sells Oracle, its nice stuff but $$$ so I haven't bought anything Oracle yet, but again the stealership over prices stuff so I will check amazon for Oracle stuff.

    Apparently the automotive stuff is hidden on their site:
