Ok so maybe i am just ignorant and cant comprehend directions but if you ask me the directions that came with these lights SUCK!! but i have a 2010 silverado and i order these lights and hooking up the turn signals and the low beams and high beams was a breeze BUT there was all these other wires for the halos and the little led's that are in them. does anyone know where maybe an install video for these is or does anybody know how to hook these up? the directions say splice the white wire into you driving light power wire and the black wire into the ground wire of your driving lights. well there are three white wires and three black wires on the head light! do i hook all the white together and then tie in? and what exactly is my driving light? any help would be appreciated as i am clueless! sorry for the long post!

Installed black halo projectors last weekend on my 2008. I pretty much followed the instructions from the spec-d video, and it worked like a charm. I spliced into the wires feeding my low beams, which makes my LEDs/halos turn on with my daytime running lights. There are only two wires going to your low beams; black wire is ground, the other color is power. See if this helps you,

1. Find a 6 to 8 inch piece of black 18 ga wire. At one end, use clamp type splice connector to tap this wire into the ground wire feeding you low beam. Add male type connector on other end.

2. Find a 6 to 8 inch piece of red 18 ga wire. At one end, use clamp type splice connector to tap this wire into the power wire. Add male type connector on other end.

3. Gather all power wires for the LED's and halos, twist their bare ends together, and slide on a female type connector. Repeat this process for the ground wires.

4. Finish by connecting male and female together.

My only complaint is that I havent been able to properly aim my lights. I've seen write ups about shining lights on garage doors, but havent had much luck. If anyone has better suggestions, send them my way.

thanks that should help a lot! what i have to say about aiming the lights as i do have experience with this! i am not sure what type of places you have around you but around me there are a few closed down grocery stores with big empty parking lots. you manual can tell you how far away to be from a wall and where to aim the lights. its something like 20ft away from the wall and then the manual will tell how high the center brightest part of the light beam should be. the biggest factor is to get your truck on level ground! hopefully this will help you out a little and thank you for your help!
