Lights 18’ Trailhawk

I just bought an 18’ Trailhawk. Is the best way to change low beam headlights to an LED kit through the fenders? Also has anyone had success with swapping DRLs bulbs without any flickering? If so, what lights did you buy? I’m looking into changing mine.

Take a look at this thread...

I have the factory HIDs so I cannot help with you low beams. I have changed my DRLs with the below link found in the other thread without any flickering.

I posted in that thread too with the bulbs I used. No issues so far, no errors.

Itís pretty simple. Just turn your wheel the whole way, remove the four bolts on the wheel well lining, pull it back and reach up in and swap out the bulb.

I am in no way a mechanic but I had no problems and it hardly takes any time to swap them out.

Here's another with only the driver side installed so you can see side by side.

And here I thought they were all the same length. Why is yours so much bigger?
