    I think you best bet would be some grill lights, like the sound off ghost or led3, or if you like you could go with an upper windshield bar. like the ultralite. You cant go wrong either way. The lights on the newer chevys have clear lens with amber bulbs for the turns right and parking right? so an amber led or strobe tube just wont fill the light quite right. Let us know what you go with.

    I took the top turn signal out, and the strobe perfectly fits in there, sillyconed it up and its been fine. I don't miss the other turn signal. I would take some pictures, but my headlight is covered in road salt and grime. I'll wash the truck and take a picture.
    Rear, I have them drilled right in the housing. found a pic...

    I did a install on a 2010 silverado I believe it was and for the front I drilled a 1 1/2 inch hole thru the outter part of the lens then I drilled the 1 inch hole in the actual len for the parking light. In the back I drilled a hole on the top of the break lights. Just be careful in the back and front that you place the lights in the proper spot so the factory bulb doesn't touch the strobe tube.
