Are you looking to upgrade your Chevy Silverado’s fog lights? Look no further than Morimoto’s first entry into the off-road pod lighting market with these SAE-compliant wide beam fog lights. The Morimoto 4Banger is THE LED Pod Light for your 2015-2019 Chevrolet Silverado HD pick-up truck.

Morimoto has created vehicle-specific fog light mounts for this truck so that you can easily install the lights. You will also find that plug-and-play capabilities eliminate the need for complex wiring. Since their release, the 4Bangers have upset the LED pod light market, and for good reason.

ABOUT

Available in two different power levels, the Morimoto 4Banger LED Pod lights bring a mixture of design, output, and versatility to the LED pod light market. With the entry-level 4Banger NCS model, you get a Nichia LED chip spec for its output source. For the premium HXB model, an Osram HX Boost LED chip packs its punch behind the TIR optics, which can be found on both models.

The NCS and HXB models both come in three different beam patterns: combo (driving), wide, and spot. The most popular among the three will likely be the wide beam pattern. This can ideally be used in a fog light application and is legal for road use when aimed at -3°. Each of these beam patterns comes in both a white and yellow color.

If you choose to go with the yellow NCS model, you will be using a Nichia true-yellow LED chip with a yellow-filtered lens. This is in contrast to the HXB model that uses a white Osram chip with a yellow-filtered lens. To compare the output between the HXB white and yellow options, you will lose roughly 30% of your brightness when you switch from the premium white HXB 4Banger to the premium yellow HXB.

You can then remove the fog light from its brackets. Disconnect the harness to remove the existing fog light housing.

To assemble the Morimoto bracketry, begin by removing the adjustment piece on the rear of the fog light. You might need to loosen the screws on either side of the housing to remove it.

The Morimoto bracket uses all the same mounting points as your OEM parts, so there is no need to worry about the fitment. There will be a square-shaped hole on the rear, bottom left of the bracket that you will put the adjustment screw into.

Run the 4Banger into the bracketry and use the two small T30 screws to tighten the 4Banger into place. Do not tighten them too tight to not damage the bracketry.

Before continuing to install the 4Banger on the car, connect the adapter harness that comes with your 4Banger.

Remove the plastic clips from the OEM mounts and place them on the rear of the 4Banger bracket.

Slide the chrome bezel back into place and then connect the Morimoto harness to the OEM connector. You can then put the 4Banger bracket into place. Push directly on the 4Banger’s face and NOT on the plastic bezel to lock it into place.

Once you have tested the lights to ensure they work properly, screw in the 10mm bolt on the rear of the fog light assembly and close your fender liner.
