Features

  • Replaces stock DRL lamps
  • Powered by 6 pieces CREE XP-G LED lights for the halo angel eye daytime running lights and a 10W CREE XB-D LED light for fog light
  • Two functions: LED halo ring as daytime running lights and center LED as fog light
  • Replace the following OEM part number: 15839896, GM2590104, 92231388, GM2592297C
Based upon what I've found, P/N 15839896 (GM partslink GM2590104) is what we have in our vehicles. So yes, these will work.

Other LED fog light assemblies to consider:

Morimoto XB LED (a lot of us have these): https://www.carid.com/morimoto/proje...n-lf110-s.html or https://www.theretrofitsource.com/po...to-xb-led.html

Spec-D (I don't know much about these): https://www.carid.com/spec-d/led-fog...07cled-dl.html

Black Horse (They look identical to the Spec-D assemblies but are more expensive): https://www.carid.com/black-horse/le...6-led-gmc.html

Both can be had for cheaper on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/273339931517

I'm sure you know the parking lights aren't the DRLs. But yes, MGMGXP's image shows the vehicle with the parking lights and fogs on.

If you wanted to run them as DRLs, then I suggest accessing the DRL circuit. It's maybe an hour job but it gets you access to the dedicate DRL wire.

I ran mine across to the driver side using 1/4" conduit right above the radiator. The DRL currently powers the LED drivers (100% wire) for the Diode Dynamics halos I retrofitted. The 50% wire is powered by the low beams. And if I want to turn the DRLs/Halos off during the day, I toggle the light switch to the left.
