Great idea and I just updated the SS with my info so far.
I’m interested to know if Amazon knows what it’s talking about. It says the model @Stach used doesn’t fit my 2020, but I can’t see any reason why that would be the case.

I have the 2018 Pacifica Hybrid Limited with the super dim halogens, so I had finally had enough. The great thing about the Cougars is that they fit entirely behind the dust cap, so the installation is basically no different than changing the bulb. The only concern I had was if they would flicker or not (if they do, Cougar is supposed to send you a free Canbus decoder), but they don't at all and are so much brighter and whiter!

If you 2020 has 9005 bulbs for the low beam, then it should be an easy swap just like it was for me.

Just bought a new 2020 Hybrid Limited. Put me in the club blown away that FCA gave the hybrids crap lighting - wonder what else they've cheaped out on that I've missed? Would've gladly paid more for better lights. Looks like 2021 will resolve that, but the new front ends looks like crap in my opinion... straight up 2000's minivan, so no thanks. I used to do a lot of light mods for vehicles I had years back. LED swaps, HID installs, etc. Factory LEDs are a beautiful thing when they are designed correctly, which is what I had been used to recently. The lights in the Pacifica are total garbage. Shame on FCA.

I'm surprised at the number of people in here recommending all the Chinese crap on Amazon and eBay, and believing the specs they put out. Trusting your life with $30 headlights that are aren't even listed for sale a year later is not a good idea. Throw whatever you want anywhere else as long as it works, but headlights? They're worth paying more for.

I just bought all this:
Highs & lows: GTR Lighting Ultra 2
Brake/rear turn: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EEI9LL2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Front turn: Amber CAN-bus PWY24W LED Front Turn Signal Bulbs For Audi BMW MINI Mercedes VW | eBay
Fog: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071SHJ5X3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Reverse: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NPIYDWU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The front & rear turn/brake were recommended here. Avoiding hyperflash without installing resistors is a huge desire of mine - I'm done messing with wires and clunky boxes, same reason I won't do a HID conversion. Aftermarket LEDs have come a LONG way over the years, but obviously some still have some improving to do.

Diode Dynamics is a USA based company, that appears to be building at least some (if not all) of their lights domestically. 3 year warranty and US customer service, along with accurate specs and a well-designed product are worth the money. I should be able to fit these headlights in the high & low beam without modifying the dust cover, and I trust they will actually put out a usable light pattern. If not, free return and onto something else. VLEDs is another US based company that makes some pretty good stuff, but the DD bulbs were more closely sized to the actual 9005, so I went with that. Reverse and fogs are just something I came across while browisng that were cheap - don't really care if they're perfect, just that they work decently.
Can you tell us once you installed them if everything work fine without anyi flicker and resistors. Also are you able to put the dust cap with these 9005 LED set?

Installed everything from my post. No issues at all, although you can notice a subtle “scroll” effect on the lights at times at night in the cameras - it’s not flashing or anything to make it unusable, but it’s there. The fog light beam pattern looks excellent, but the output isn’t amazing. That’s fine for me... fills in front a little bit, and is a cosmetic improvement.

I actually bought some GTR Lighting Ultra 2s as well based on positive reviews and had them delivered before the Diode Dynamics got here. Headlight Revolution has a YouTube video reviewing 2 dozen bulbs including the GTR and SL1. GTR was #1, and after just comparing for myself, I agree they are significantly better than the SL1. I will be returning those.

The GTR Ultra 2s do fit the high and low beam with dust cover intact, no modifications. Just barely clears the high beam cover, but it fits. Overall a significant improvement over halogen. I don’t have any good photos yet unfortunately. Here is a quick low + fog & high beam shot, a comparison of the SL1 (left) vs GTR (right), and a comparison of GTR (left) vs stock halogen (right). The photos are dim due to short exposure to better capture the light output since I’m so close to the wall.

Considering your headlights could mean life and death at night, people should care what they buy at least for those.
