I recently purchased a 2004 Colorado Z71 and found immediately that the headlight and parking/turn housings gathered a decent amount of condensation

Now, if all you want to do is solve the condensation issue, there are 'breather' holes on the back of each housing: the marker housings have them covered up on the marker side(inside light) by an inch diamater band-aid looking sticker, you can either remove it or poke a hole in it. the Headlight housings have them on the bottom outside corner, covered by what looks to be electrical tape.

I, on the other hand, wanted to remove the orange reflectors from the housings.
BE AWARE: some jurisdictions may find this reflector removal illegal, removing them may warrant some unwanted(or wanted, however you like) attention from the Police.

I went to Meijers to get some Black RTV and came across some Pilot LED running lights and I thought I could get some use out of those.

Alot of things can be done with headlights and drls. Condensation portion is usually because of a leak or crank along the edges or the face of the lense. If your ever in the market for some reflectors. Hit up @un4giv3n
