My dad has a set of the headlights with halos and LED lights in them with 6000k HIDs in high and low beam and they are bright as hell. Looks good as well. I am looking at other lights at this link:

Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more

Guess I will let you know when i get them on. I have a black f250 7.3L.

Several ways to go.
Update from stock, but keep the 'look' the same - go with some '03-'04 housings. Same shape, fit in the same spot, just has a clear lens. That's what I did. See the link to my pic (it's large):

Some have gone with the one piece headlight/turn signal housings from the '05 & up trucks. Like these:
NEW 99-04 SUPERDUTY EXCURSION CONVERSION 07 HEADLAMP HEADLIGHTS SET 00 01 02 03 | eBay

-OR-
The Harley-Davidson style:
F250 F350 F450 SUPERDUTY HEADLIGHTS HEADLAMP SET NEW | eBay

-OR-
like what The Stig suggested.

Have fun shopping.

The HD ones, in this listing, are $118.95.

Ebay has the smoked version of those for like $100. You cant beat that. And to me everyone has harley lights, so I want something slightly different, and like he said direct bolt on. I am going to get these as soon as I can.

I have found many suppliers of these 05-07 composite lamps but have yet to find a supplier for the 03-4 housing. I have a 00 F350 and would be more than happy with the replacement clear lamps without going to all the work of installing the 05s. Do I just call Ford parts for the 03 clear lamps? Any links to sellers out there?
