I'd be very interested hearing how the install, plug and play goes b1. Please keep us posted after you get the assemblies.

Question. When I turn on the LED lights on the console the lights on my awning comes on but so do my headlights. Is this normal and wouldn't this run the battery down. Thanks for your input. I have a FR3

b1barnes,
Who did contact at FR I would like to explore this option and see if they would be willing to help me out with the headlights for my 2014.

@angelicashelties, the way FR did the earlier models was to have the headlight LED halos come on with the awning LEDs. It'll only run down your house batteries, but their LEDs and they don't use much power. Some people just cut the wire to the LED Halos and put heatshrink over the wire so they never come on or tie them to the head light circuit. Couple ways to do without them if you choose to. I thought they were too bright, so I installed a resistor to step down the voltage. But I'll probably change out the whole headlight assy to the Silverado setup to get brighter headlights. Which they won't have the halo lights to worry about then.

Help low beam headlights

For what it's worth in this discussion - I had an exchange with the FR tech rep on my GT headlights. After all was said and done, it turned out both of my headlights were pointed so far off the road that it created a dangerous dark area in front of us. It appears that they aren't adjusted after installation.

After three day of phone tag I got it touch with a service rep and explained about the headlights. He agreed to send a set of Silverado headlights as a replacement.

I'd be curious to know if any of you that received, or will be receiving, replacement headlights from FR are out of warranty?

I own a 2014 for about 18 months, it is outside of the warranty. FR did point out to me that I was out of warranty period, but I can't say why they agreed to replace. I did point out that I replaced the bulbs with a silver stars and adjusted the headlights but they were still not giving enough light to drive down the road. The end result is up until my last two trips I did not do any night driving and found out that if I wasn't running the high beams I couldn't see the road.

I will say this about FR, besides finding it tough to get in touch with, when I do there hasn't been an issue that the haven't taken care of or led me in the the right direction to take care of it myself. What we all have to remember is that the Fr3 is still a new line and they are listening to us and making fixes as they go.
