The 07-14 GMC Yukons are versatile and useful vehicles, but they lack high-quality headlights. The trucks were designed during a time when General Motors prioritized simplicity, but there is a solution to this problem: the XB Hybrids from Morimoto. Equipped with a powerful Bi-LED projector and LED daytime running lights, these headlights will bring a much-needed modern touch to the performance and aesthetics of the front end of your Yukon.
BANG FOR THE BUCK:
The XB Hybrids from Morimoto use many of the same fundamental parts found in the pricier Morimoto lights, but exclude some of the features that make them more costly. Nevertheless, these new LED headlights for the Yukon are not a compromise. They feature light-pipe-driven optics for the DRL, exceptional lighting power, and an attractive appearance all contained within an OEM-grade housing and backed by a reliable five-year warranty.
Let’s now compare Morimoto’s Yukon LED headlights to other available options. There are cheap eBay headlights that have a cheesy appearance, low-quality construction, and poor performance. On the other hand, projector retrofits for OEM headlights offer good value for money but require a lot of time to assemble. Then there are the XB Hybrids. In our opinion, there are few options in this price range that can match the Morimoto headlights for the 07-14 Yukon.
In terms of brightness, the Yukon headlights are highly satisfactory with no shortage of luminosity. The Hybrids, in particular, feature a potent, expansive, and brilliant Bi-LED projector that delivers exceptional low and high beam patterns despite their economical cost. Unlike other similar upgrades that may look only passable, these headlights look fantastic and will undoubtedly make nighttime driving a joy. So, let the darkness come!
If you’re someone who’s concerned about complying with street legality, you’ll be pleased to know that the Bi-LED projector optics on these headlights meet or even surpass the standards set by SAE, DOT, and FVMSS108. Additionally, the headlights are pre-aimed to factory specifications and can be easily adjusted for those who have lifted or lowered their Yukon trucks.
PLUG AND PLAY:
This content talks about the simplicity of the wiring process for Hybrid headlights. They are designed to work seamlessly on the Yukon without requiring any modifications. The headlights can be plugged into the factory H13 three-pin connector without any issues. Additionally, the stock halogen turn signal bulb can be reused, which means there’s no need to add resistors to prevent hyper flashing. However, to power the DRL, one cable needs to be added, which comes included. This cable can be plugged into one of the slots in the fuse box, making the process simple and easy.
