    I have been weeding through the post and have not found anything to help me out. I have the Z71 package on my 07 NNBS, the replacement bulb is a PS24WWF. Reading the reviews for the comparitive Putco bulb and they burn out quick and burn the fog light itself. I am wanting to go with possibly HID, still deciding. I don't want to remove the OEM fog light, just upgrade the bulbs. Has anyone made this upgrade to a different bulb? If so, was the OEM fog light left in place? How was bulb and/or lens modified for upgrade bulb? If someone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

    sorry, I'm not sure about the bulbs....someone else might tune in soon
    that does, if not, I know our GM Dealer always searches their Database
    for me when I need to cross-reference parts or go away from OEM
    just for cost reasons....good luck in your search...Brian from Canada:glasses:

    I'll send a text message to my friend Mike who owns Longshot lighting, they see an HID distributor and he has done a tone of your style trucks. Give me a few hours and check back. I'll have a solution and even price options for an HID upgrade.

    Got your answer already. You need the 5202 bulb kit which is available in a 35 watt kit. You have your choice between a regular slim ballast for $80 or a fast bright kit for $150

    The difference is basically what it says,
    Fast bright kits warm up WAY fast. For fog lights I don't think it's really needed. They are great for high beams though.

    You will also need a relay kit which he also stocks on his website. They are cheap and a good thing to have.

    Any questions about HIDs go ahead and post up, I'll be happy to answer them.

    You're very welcome! Mike is an incredible nice dude, very helpful, customer service rocks!! Don't forget to order a relay harness!! He doesn't have it advertised yet but ask him about it.

    Another option that might be a little less expensive but durable is going with a high wattage LED.
