'05 Head Light Conversion Template/Guide For Cutting

I finally got around to installing some '05 OEM head lights yesterday on my '04.

I really couldnt find much information on exactly what to cut out of the header panel to make the '05 HL's fit.

So I took some pictures of where I cut mine out and just wanted to share this info with others.







Sorry I dont have any pics of the completed look. Most of you have seen this done before I'm sure. Just wanted to share where to cut.

More pics to follow of my truck later when its cleaned up, done lots O stuff to it lately. Thanks.

You re-use the holes that held on the turn signal assembly for the bottom of the newer head lights.

For the top side of the head lights, there are 2 tabs with holes in them that are allready a part of the header panel. with the wiring harness i bought from dfuser.com, he will send you a hardware package that includes 4 screws, washers, and retainging clips to fasten the top of the head light in place.

Ah, well that answers the questions! So I take it the was you did it means you don't have to buy the headerpanels an all that jazz and this just allows you to change only the headlamps. Cool!

thats correct Brant. chop that section out, and the newer one piece head lights fit right in.

you will have to loosen the bumper at the corner right under each head light to get the bottom of the HL to fit in first.

you will also need to be an upgraded wiring harness to handle the extra power it takes to run the lights.

I ordered mine from bill at dfuser.com below is the description of the one i needed for my application. I also needed the hardware package to be able to fasten the HL at the top of the header panel.

Easy to install, this wiring harness will supply battery voltage or more to your headlights.
This extra voltage will give you brighter, whiter headlights.

I bought them from a forum member on another powerstroke site.

gave 150.00 for them. a very good deal, plus i sold my old ones for 50.00, so I have 100.00 in just the head lights.

I saw several on ebay the other day selling for 150 to 200. even saw some harley davidson ones for 250.00, which is a steal.
