Take your grill and the individual headlights out and it's a snap. I've had my HIDs in for a little over a year and I wouldn't trade them for a white shirt and a .......well, you know the rest.

You're welcome. This forum rocks with the help stuff and folks that always seem to be willing to help out. One of the things that a lot of the HID users find is that they will have to adjust the up/down of the headlights after installing the HIDs. Mine didn't require much, but it was enough that I was getting the occasional oncoming drivers flashing me. There is no adjustment for side to side, just up/down. Enjoy them, they make quite a difference for lighting on this truck.
