Did the 01 to 05 headlight swap!

This was a fairly easy swap due to the template that was on the .org here from bama350.
'05 Head Light Conversion Template/Guide For Cutting

They look much better IMO. Well, here are some pics

before, I had already taken my grill off at this point


The passenger Original


05 Drivers side in



Full frontal



HID's from an angle and distance


I havent been able to get a good pic of the HID's yet, but I will

Me and my wife are both very frugal when it comes to money....that way we can spend it on going out of town and other things that we enjoy. Just save up and pay cash.

My wife has taught me that whole frugal thing.. In fact, she has taught me almost too well, she complains now I don't want to spend money on anything! I think my biggest problem is my toy list is mostly stuff for the truck where hers is mostly for the house.

Anyways back to the thread, I like the look of the HID's! How are they driving?
