Putting in new OBS headlights??

Okay, has anybody changed their headlights to new ones? Just wondering how difficult it is. Took a quick peek at my truck yesterday and looks like the headlight itself has posts with these weird looking clips? Also took the 2 screws off the top of the chrome trim ring and still couldn't get it off. Looks like it's attached underneath with screws that you can't get to. Just wonderin how to get this done.

It is a royal pain and takes a little time. You have to remove a lot of pieces to be able to get to 'em. Remove the battery and feel around for holes in the sheeet metal behind the lights. They will have 10mm (I think) nuts that need to be removed.

Once you remove the nuts does the whole thing come out as one unit? (All 3 lights?) Then you can take each one apart?

I was doing some work for an auto body shop and got a good deal on new stock headlights. The ones on the truck are all fogged over.
