New Light install (buttload of pics)

Used clear headlights and corner lights from Ebay seller parasitesingle. I recommend using the stock adjusters because the ones that come with it aren't very good quality. Lights fit very well.
I'm planning on getting clear LED's for the corner lights but will get around to that later. I'm using Sylvania Xtra Vission bulbs and I'll get night shots later...

Old Lights:


New Lights:


Compare old vs new:


Remove grill/corner/turn/surround pieces:


Remove header panel, two bolts on each end, one at inside bottom corner of headlight, two each side at ends of grill hole, one bottom center (8mm, 11 total)


What it should look like: (corner/bumper attaches here)


What one side looked like:


Fixed the cracked pieces with JB Weld and sheet metal


3 Headlight clips hold it in, remove and then re-install on new lights


Finished!


Much better!

Here's some night shots. I'm hoping to get a chrome grill again. I think it would look better. TIred of the white...

Mine came with them, but from what I hear they aren't hard to install. You can buy the whole kit for $40 from LMC Truck. and the power wire for them runs behind the passenger side kick panel on all the trucks whether they came with the lights or not.
I love them. Makes it look more like a truck. I need some new lenses for them though, they're getting old and cracked.

Excellent conversion of the headlight. What is your opinion of the quality of the replacement lens's you bought on ebay? Was the company easy to deal with? How long did it take to change out?
Thanks

The seller on Ebay was pretty easy to deal with. They shipped out 2 days after my payment went through and were here within a week. THe shipping cost was a lot, but total price including shipping was reasonable.

The quality of the lenses seem very good. The adjusters aren't as good as the stock pieces but you can re-use the stock parts on the new ones.

It would have gone faster if I didn't have to repair those two holes so I'd say probably 2.5 or 3 hours from start to finish if you didn't have to fix anything.

Thanks for the quick reply. I've never purchased anything on ebay. I've seen the replacement lenses through some online parts suppliers, but they want over $100. plus shipping for a set. Sure gives your truck a sweet new look.

I agree. They make your truck look way newer. Great Job. I like them. I did the same thing with the ebay replacements. Love them:







Do I have to say before/after? Ha, It kind of speaks for itself
