Top 5 Best LED tail lights for your Chevy Silverado
It comes as no surprise that the Spyder LED tail light tops the list. Possibly the most popular aftermarket tail light fitted to Silverado’s, and for all the right reasons!
They give you a wide variety of styles to choose from, but personally I think the smoked tail lights look sick! You could choose the clear lens if you want the benefits of LED tail lights, but want to keep a more stock look.
Installation should only take roughly 15 minutes. They come ready to plug in with no wire splicing needed. Turn them on and tell me your not amazed at the brightness, especially when you stomp the brake!
Don’t let the low price fool you, these are pretty darn high quality for the money. I’ve had these on through a few freezing cold winters and have yet to see any leakage or condensation!
Have a look at the reviews on Amazon, you’ll see plenty of happy customers!
Another big contender in the game, Anzo, makes some high quality lights that are arguably the best looking LED tail lights on the market! The only reason they aren’t first on the list is because they are slightly more expensive. Still though, for under 250$ you get a stunning set of lights if this is within your budget.
They are made in compliance with all OE standards so are safe to use in all of USA.
These are pretty much just as easy to install as the Spyder lights, featuring the same plug and play style setup. Make sure you order the correct fitment for your Chevy model, I am constantly seeing people complaining about them not fitting. THEY DO FIT if you choose the correct fitment.
Overall, these are a great set of tail lights. They are super bright and give your Chevy a more modern look. They have a Thermo-Hygrometer, and are very well sealed.
Got an older model chevy that you want to freshen up? This is by far the best pair of LED tail lights for 88 – 99 model Silverado’s. They are super bright and very high quality. A lot of older Chevys I see driving about have dull and faded tail lights. For the price of a Saturday night out I can’t see why anyone wouldnt want this upgrade.
Simple to install and should take you 30 minutes at the most. They are made by OEM approved manufacturers under strict OEM guidelines. This means that no shortcuts could be taken when designing these, resulting in the a real high quality set of LED tail lights.
I think the reason I love this set so much is purely down to the fact that they make such a difference to an older model truck. These are a necessity in my opinion and at around a 100 bucks theres no excuse not to buy them!
Last, but not least, a pair of AutoSaver LED tail lights. This is not an overly expensive set of tail lights, and gives the back end of your truck a more aggressive look. The exclusive design of these tail lights will make your vehicle stand out from the rest, I personally haven’t seen many of these about – perfect if you want your chevy to be unique!
What’s the main benefits of LED taillights For my Chevy Silverado?
– Greater Visibility and increases Safety
LED tail lights often double or triple the range of standard lights, which is the main reason they are considered to have a major increase on road safety. Heck, every vehicle on the road should have them! Next time your driving at night or in poor visibility, keep an eye out and you will notice that you will be able to spot cars and trucks with LED taillights at much greater distance than standard taillights.
This is due to the fact that they are constructed froom several lightbulb systems, rather than single bulbs found in standard tail lights. Therefore, they emit an array of light that makes your truck more visible at greater distances.
– Make your Silverado unique and stylish!
This is probably the main reason why most of you want to upgrade your Silverado with LED tail lights, and rightly so. Your tail lights give you the perfect opportunity to leave a long lasting impression when you leave everyone else eating your dust! Ensure your daily driver is eye catching with a shiny new set of LED tail lights. There are many different combinations to choose from to give your truck that extra flair, from smoked to chrome. The color of your ride will play a big part in choosing the right style for you, but in my opinion smoked LED taillights look bad-ass on any truck!
– Longer Lasting and greater Lifespan
There is two main reasons why LED taillights will last longer in your Chevy:
- LED’s are shockproof – so if your an aggressive driver like myself, then they may be a necessary upgrade haha! Just think of a standard household lightbulb, give it a few shakes and it wont be lighting up your living room, that’s for sure! Well, you’ll be glad to know this isn’t the case with LED lights!
- Unlike traditional bulbs, LED bulbs don’t have a filament to heat up and burn out. Therefore they can last well over 10 times longer! When an LED light is getting to the end of its life it will start to dim, rather than suddenly going out like your standard lightbulb.
– Simple Installation usually takes roughly 30 minutes
All the taillights on our list are simple ‘plug and play’mn . There’s no need for wire splicing or any of that nonsense – pffft, who has time for that anyway ! This simple upgrade can be done in about 10 minutes usually. Quick tip – even if your not mechanically inclined, just have a look on YouTube for installation tutorials, there is no need to fork out any cash for a mechanic – its really that simple!
– Better Overall Energy Efficiency
A great benefit of LED lights is that they only require a very minimal amount of energy to run. Although the difference will be barely noticeable on its own, it puts less strain on the battery and alternator which is a good thing when you’ve got a power hungry stereo system pumping! Less strain on the battery and alternator equals less frequent repairs/changes – which in turn equals more money in our pockets!
