Very easy install. The only OEM bulb that gave me a problem to remove was the top driver's side. Besides that I was done in 30 minutes.

That's what I've had in the truck for about a month, fanless. No problems at all to this point. And it didn't put too much of a dent in the checkbook.
At least if you have problems like you did with the other brand, Amazon has always been good about returns/exchanges/refunds the few times I've needed to.

I've done it both ways - grille/headlight removal and removing the washer tank filler neck and the air intake snorkel. The second way is faster.
But I broke the little push in fastener that holds the washer tank neck. Luckily I keep an assortment of those on hand so I had one to replace it.
If you do the grille removal, one bolt between the bumper and the fender is a bear to get at. I managed to do it with a 1/4 inch drive extension.

Make sure you post back after you've installed them and tried them out. Just because I like them doesn't mean that you will. It'll give other guys some more information to work with if they're considering the change.

I did with one bulb out of the 4. But looking back, it was more likely my fault that I didn't continue rotating the bulb and trying different positions during the initial install. Mostly because I was going by feel and couldn't see what I was doing that well.
Make sure that the LED chips are facing left and right (side to side) and not cocked even a little bit. That can mess up your light pattern is what I understand.
Another reminder that was probably stated before but worth mentioning again because it looks like a couple guys are doing it today - make sure the red gasket comes out with the factory bulbs. It'd be a bitch or impossible to get the light to seat in correctly if both the factory seal and the seal on the new bulb were there.

Anyone have any good suggestions for front parking lights and rear brake lights? So far everything has worked as advertised for me and I just want to do them all.

Got them installed this afternoon. I went the "remove the grill" method. Only broke 1 clip on the grill getting it off, no big deal. Getting the headlamp assemblies out and back in took holding my mouth right... but I got them back in. The bulbs were in there pretty good and tight. Make sure you get the gaskets off as 3 of the 4 came off on mine. Installation of the LEDs was a no brainer. Mine didn't need any adjustments out of the box.

Even taking off the grill, this was a 1 out of 5 wrench install. Now I have to wait until it gets dark to check everything out

Well, I finally got them installed. Removed the snorkel and tube to get to them. Notes... had to remove the battery to get to the drivers side. Passenger side went smoothly , drivers side top light put up a knuckle grinding curse out loud fight but the pliers tip helped out and did the trick.ill post pics once it gets dark.
