Metal twister is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Went with the el cheapos, 2002 models came with the bulbs. In hind site I didn't even pull the new bulbs to see what they were but a marked improvement over the stockers. Not eye popping bright but for $50.00 delivered the next day with the bulbs... They will be just fine thanks.

I just installed the 2002-year TYC brand Rock Auto headlights last week in my '01, and they came with new Sylvania bulbs (stock wattage) installed. Installing them in the truck was a 10 minute job that took 2 hours, due to those idiotic clips that Ford used. I also ended up pulling both batteries (individually) to gain access to the lower headlight clip.

I'm satisfied with the results. The headlights are not stupendous, but they are brighter and shine wider than before. Late night driving in canyons is now less stressful and safer. Total cost from Rock Auto including 2 day shipping was $70.

L-ight is starting off with a positive reputation.
I bought these https://www.ebay.com/itm/99-04-F250-...53.m2749.l2649. They took some time to install. I also added LED bulbs in them as well. The lows are ok, but do much better over the stock lights. The brights are super bright. I will post some pictures here soon. I was able to get them lined up well without having a horrible gap between the fender and light. Though seeing those retro fit lights I may end up going that route down the road if these don't workout well after I lift my truck.



Here's the headlights Might not be everyone's taste but I'm ok with it for now till I pony up some big money for retrofits.
