Are you talking about the composite style I have a 2002 and it has composite lights on the front of the truck. I would replace the bulbs should be 9007

the majority of the super duty trucks have the 9007 bulbs , where the bulbs just pull out of the back and you replace the bulb. but the work truck XL models have the old sealed beam style bulbs like the pre 87 ford trucks. the problem is the sealed beam bulbs are not as bright. the body shape is the same so i was wanting to add aome aftermarket lenses and upgrade to the newer style maybe from a scrapyard.

Oh ok he has the Sealed lights now, He can just go to a junk yard or ebay and get the front grill assembley and swap it out. But he will need to get at least the connector for the bulbs. But it can be done.

Or just add some aftermarket driving lights or fog lights to brighten things up.
