Haven't but I will be using the Hella 550's. I have used them on other vehicles over the years with good results.

LED are the way to go these days.

Check out Amazon for frequent deals on LED lights.
I bought a set awhile back with the plan to mount them under the bumper of my truck to help light up on backing up... they still are in my garage on the shelf though

fog lights/led

My 2015 GMC 2500HD has projection headlights and create a huge blind spot on either side of the vehicle.

I replaced the stock fog light bulbs with high output LED bulbs and used reflective tape on the inside face of the black bezel. This reflects a lot of light to the sides.

I also removed the grill, mounted an 18" wide LED light bar then re-installed the grill. I added a relay between the light bar and the battery terminal and used the fog lamp hot lead as the relay on/off. I pointed the light slightly down so the beams mirrored the low beam light pattern.

On those dark nights when you're away from the city lights, it makes all the difference in the world.

Get HIDs, 20$ on ebay for a set. 4300k in color. Best upgrade you can do to your truck. After you will not need driving lights nor fog lights.

i installed a license plate bracket/ light bracket from vision x. I have a couple driving lights on there now, but will probably switch to a 18" LED light bar.

Nothing worse than an oncoming person with those lights that don't have the sense to dim / turn them off.

You can get a ticket for that if the opposing driver is a cop....

That OEM fog light thing irritates me to no end. It ain't foggy....duh...

I added a 20" LED single row light bar inside the bumper and mainly use it when we go up the mountain late at night to some friends house, it is however tied into the high beam side of the headlights and also has a switch on the dash! Works perfect.

Probably because you don't have them.

I don't care how many lights they have, so long as they are properly aimed and aren't in my eyes. Seems pickup trucks are common offenders in this regard for some reason. You'd think since their headlights are usually mounted higher, they should be aimed down a few more degrees than a car, but that doesn't seem to be case for many of them.

Up date on LED lighting added to 2500HD.

Regardless of how many lights you add, these are not for city use.

Fair statement on both counts. I do have them on my as tractors however and went with CREE led lamps because of the lower amp draw. Just replaced all the conventional bulbs on the RV to LED bulbs.
