Quick question, (not trying to thread jack) but I was wondering what color the turn signal wires are that need to be tapped? I got my switchbacks from iJDMtoy.com's store (the actual store not online lol) and I have the 50w6ohm resister (one for each bulb) and the tap slice things. Is there anything else I am missing? If possible, I will mount the resistors on the back side of the headlight assembly if there is room (have double sided tape for that). Took a quick pic to show...

Definitely post pics when you are done the install!!
Sorry I couldn't be of help but there are certainly members out there that would know the answer. @SurrealOne

I don't know the colour of the turn signal wire but it's easy enough to probe. If the Silverado wiring is like the Sierra wiring then the turn signal bulb should have three wires coming into the socket where the turn signal bulb is located. One wire should be black (negative) while the other two wires will have a colour and be positive. One of the two coloured wires is the turn signal wire.
To find out which wire is the turn signal wire:
- Pop the turn signal bulb out of the socket
- Set the parking brake
- Place the key in the ignition
- Turn the ignition to run
- Use the turn signal lever to activate the turn signal
- Grab a test light
- Connect the test light to a GOOD ground point
- Carefully probe one of the two coloured wires, if it flashes off/on/off/on/off/on you've found your wire, if not test the other one
If neither wire ignites your test light then check your ground and try again.

AMac: I haven't tested them yet but I will yank a bulb out and toss the LED in there before hooking up the resistor to see how it works. I wished they made the Projector LED's for the fogs, they would get my money quickly lol. This is my first venture into the LED world. I had contemplated doing LED's for my factory tail lamps. But I dunno how it would look.
Thanks Surreal. Looks like I gotta go buy a test light. If I had my Haynes manual with me, I could just look at the wiring diagram and be done with it already lol.

Will do. Probably won't get to it until Monday. I left my Haynes manual in storage so after I get it on Monday, I'll swap the bulbs and if the lights are now I dreamed of, I'll be installing the resistors at that point.

okay, idk if this is the right spot to ask or not, i have an 05, i want switchbacks in the blinkers, and white LED's in the DRL's, idk where to get them or what to get exactly, any help would be greatly appreciated!
