Now that she is all Plasti-dipped, lifted, and the wheels are sticking WAY out it’s time to light this beast up! We worked with Offroad Led Bars (Olb) on some LEDS and put together an HID light kit like these (Complete HID kits – hi beams, low beams, and fogs). We are extremely happy with the color and quality of our kit running the 8K (Iceberg Blue). Since our website has the blue accents we changed all interiors to blue LEDs and we wanted the HIDs to flow with that theme. You can’t believe how easy there are to install and how BRIGHT they are! Be prepared to aim them all down a bit, if you are lifted, or people will be very upset 🙂
Next up was a 20″ LED light bar by OffRoad Led Bars! These make the HIDs seem dim, absolutely amazing quality and BRIGHTNESS. Ours is the 20″ bar (Sold here) that comes with brackets and we also used the low priced wire harness (Sold Here). Once we removed the headlights, took off our added hardware, and 1 or 2 bolts the grill “popped” right off. (remember we added a pile of studs so yours won’t have all those extra holes and hardware to remove)
If you look closely in the picture above you will also see the brackets we “fabbed” up. It’s simply the cheap metal band from Fleet Farm with pre-drilled holes and we added a little primer and black paint. This stuff actually fits perfectly with the hardware that comes with the 20″ OffRoad LED Light bar and cut to the right length it bolted right to the radiator brace and rested on the inside of the front bumper. This made a nice rigid platform and got the light away from the radiator fins! Close up —->
And since we had her all apart, you can see we quick shot some flat black paint on those white radiator supports and re-dipped our grill (out of the picture).
A couple bolts and some quick wiring to the battery and through the firewall grommet (for our LED light bar switch on the dash) and we had the 20″ Off Road LED light bar all set up on our Avalanche!!
Now with the flip of a switch we had the HIDs and the 20″ LED light bar cutting through the night. The following weekend at 2 am our truck was used to light up a side-hill water slide that was 150 yards away!! She’s bright!!
