    Do you have the cladded Avalanche, or the WBH (Without Body Hardware)?

    No just on here. Both look very good! Be glad when i get some extra money to do more upgrades. The reason why i was asking was i thought u had hids in the cladded fog light. I would like to do that in mine but they collect moisture inside and blow all my bulbs. And i was just wondering if you knew if replacement assemblies were made better. Until i reread your signature and realized yhat you have an 08 now.

    If I remember right people used to put 9006 or 9005's in the fog light opening for a brighter bulb The DRLs always got Amber Sylvania's...SilverStars

    I currently dont have any bulbs in the DRL's or fogs because the inside of the lenses collect moisture. And all the bulbs end up blowing. Do you think new replacement lenses /hanging fog light DRL assembly would be better so they wouldnt collect moisture too over time? I just don't want to spend the money on new one just to have the same problem soon after i put them in.

    Have you tried using silicone around the housing?
    This may be the most inexpensive way to keep the moisture out. It may be worth the try before you spend the larger amount of money getting newer housings.

    No i haven't tried anything like that. I actually didnt realize that they were collecting moisture till one day after several days of heavy rain i saw that the driver side was half full of rain water. And my fog light had exploded. That turned the inside of the reflective material around it black. So i will have to buy new ones now anyway. I have seen other AVs around in parking lots with one new one and an old one and it just doesnt look right. I could tell that there was a difference. And on my truck stuff like that just irritates me. For some reason.

    I agree....it would irritate me also...I can't stand having OEM equipment on my truck that does not work, or look like it should. (Unless I make it better...lol)

    If you do get new housings, I would suggest putting a bead of clear silicone around all the possible leak points to prevent any water from coming in...perhaps this will allow you to have them much longer.
