    What is wrong with Chevy trucks that they can get both daytime running lights to work? It's not like it was only one model year either. Or is it a extra option to have them both on at the same time?:confused:

    LOL i can agree with that. No problems with mine though. But i see probably 1 out of 10 GMs "winking" at me. Not only on the trucks, but suburbans & tahoes too.

    because the enginers f-up and used a mometary use brake/turn bulb for a full on long running bulb position.

    someone needs to make a new bulb to fit the application and be usable for long time on use and not melt the stock plug/socket.

    I suppose that is something you would notice after a while when the blue hairs are on your bumper pushing you uphill on their way to bingo. :jester:

    not a problem, make sure you get the tower type bulbs though, they are brighter. its really a great upgrade because they are whiter(HID like) and almost never die:)

    Grandview to awnser you actual question they burnout because it is actually a pulsing current. It wont be long the leds will follow. Some guys go to an amber it seems to help and it looks good.

    Tom is right, plus I think they make you more visible to other vehicles and I would install them even if it wasn't standard. I think some states require new vehicles to have them also.

    OK, I just bought a GMC truck out of CT brand new and it had day time lights, so I just thought they had to have them. I think all cars and trucks on the road should have them.
