PLEASE NOTE: Silverado Trucks with the standard reflector headlights need the Morimoto XB H11A bulbs. Projector style headlights require the Morimoto H11B Bulbs.
Renowned: The Morimoto Elite Systems have earned their reputation amongst many as the aftermarket's best set of HID's. We urge you to check out the specs below, Read the Reviews and then ask yourself whether your ability to see well while driving at night is worth saving a couple bucks?
Optioned Out: With a variety of available options, the Morimoto Elite HID system can be configured perfectly just for you. This helpful video goes over each of the options shown above.
HID Ballasts: Designed in California by Morimoto’s engineer, Yoshi Ishida, the Morimoto XB 2.0 HID Ballasts are just as good looking on the outside as they are well-engineered on the inside. They are available in both 35w and 50w versions, use proprietary software by the pros at Hylux paired with packaging perfection from the masters at Morimoto. This is today’s most modern iteration of a model that has sold more than half a million units since inception, and we don’t think it can really get any better!
HID Bulbs: At the heart of the XB H11 bulbs is their perfectly aligned 100% Philips Quartz glass that houses a capsule from APL-USA. Using high quality halide salts from German-supplier Messer; the bulbs produce nearly the same luminosity (intensity) as the amazing Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K. No, you're not seeing things here, but yes you will be seeing everything at night!
Wiring: The special Silverado Spec HD Relay Harness features an all-new completely sealed double 40A Relays, 14 gauge stranded copper wire wrapped in durable black tech-flex mesh that looks like a factory harness once installed. No cutting or splicing here: there are only five connections and they're all plug-n-play. Most importantly, the harness includes the proper capacitor to absorb and smooth out the pulsed signal from the factory headlight circuit that plagues these trucks.
Backed Up: Let's not forget the 5-year warranty on the entire kit*. The Elite system is designed to run for 2500 hours, so that's what it's guaranteed for. Don't buy into empty promises from other places offering BS "lifetime" warranties. Nothing lasts forever, and if you think "the other guy" will be there to pick up the phone or even stay in business long enough to assist you when there's a problem; guess again! [*XB55 Silverado HID kits have a 3 year warranty]

These lights are amazing. As others have said, they are the way that these trucks should have came from the factory. I went with the 35w 5500K and have been very impressed so far. These have been a great birthday gift.
If you are thinking that the HID wiring is too cumbersome, i thought that too, until I installed this kit. Not bad at all and can make it very well hidden in the engine bay.
My wife bought me this kit for my birthday. As others have said, this is the way that these trucks should have came from the factory. I went with the 35w 5500K and am very impressed. I don't think that I will need my high-beams anymore (when I turn them on, the Morimoto HIDs make them barely visible). I was on the fence about getting an HID kit because of the wiring, but it only took a little over an hour to install. The best part (other than being able to see amazingly at night) is that the kit is well hidden in the engine bay, making it seem like everything is stock.
High quality parts and I would (and have) recommend to everyone I know who has one of these trucks.
I tried the Morimoto 2 stroke Led bulbs on the first go around and couldn't stand the fan noises. Contacted TRS and they assisted me in finding the right HID kit (35w 5500k). If I had to guess I'd say a 200% improvement over the 2 stroke LED bulbs in pattern and brightness. Simple straight forward wiring with good instructions.
I installed a pair in both my GMC trucks, a 2500HD and Yukon. and wow! fixed GMC's epic failure. I had to order ballast and igniter harness extensions as the harness is definitely not long enough for the airbox side. both vehicles are the 35W 5500k with led xb fogs.
So I initially bought a cheap HID kit thinking id save money. You get what you pay for. Didn't work after about 3 works of troubleshooting (from a un-named company). I contacted the guys at TRS and they led me In the right direction. So far (2 weeks) I've had absolutely no issues. The DRL work perfect and no issues with AUTO lights. Thanks for the help and great customer service so far. The quality of the the kit is top notch.
The low beams for this 60 k truck are a joke. Purchased the 4500k 35 w set and could not be happier. Install took a little longer than expected but wanted all wires secured and out of the way as much as possible. There is various routs for the wires so took little pre-planning prior. Like others have mentioned light output is great and huge difference with nice cutoff. This truck should not have come with Halogens from the factory not a good place to cut cost. Great company and satisfied customer after much research prior to purchase. Thanks
Fixed the problem with not being able to see at night with stock headlights,i went with 55w ballasts and 4500k bulbs and love the results.Shipping was really fast as well
The whole process from ordering to installation was super easy. The delivery turnaround was lightning fast. The installation was very simple. Before getting started my advise would be take a minute to map out where you want to put the ballasts and relays, allow some extra time for that. I used 3M 30# double sided stick tape and that made it super easy. The light output for the low beams is a 200% improvement over stock OEM.
After emailing TRS, they advised this unit would work perfectly with my truck. I purchased the unit with 35w ballast and 5500k bulbs and installed it exactly how they suggested (website example). After about a month one side of the lights went out. I purchased replacement bulbs thinking it was the bulb that went out but i was wrong. Replacing the bulb didn't fix the problem. I did some trouble shooting and discovered the ballast was out. I emailed TRS and they replaced the burnt ballast very quickly. I installed the new ballast and 1 week later, the light went out again. I'm done trouble shooting with their product. Now I'm awaiting their reply to see what they suggest i do now. Hopefully they can help me fix this issue.
This HID kit is great. It is totally worth the money spent. I went with the 5500's with the 35 watt ballasts and they are at least 3-4 times brighter than the stock halogens. The kit came with everything that I needed and it was an easy install (about 1.5 hours).
