2003 Clear Headlamps from Rock Auto

I've been researching the replacement of my dingy 2000 F250 ribbed headlamps and I think the easiest solution I've seen is to replace them with the clear headlamps from a 2003 F250. This looks like a direct "no mod" replacement. Rock Auto has them at pretty reasonable prices, about $58 a pair. At Rock Auto, you can also get the same part as "CAPA Certified" but the cost is almost 3 times as much. Why? I certainly understand wanting to be CAPA certified if I'm buying a body panel, but how much of a chance am I taking that the headlamps will not fit?

I can't comment specifically on the 03 lights.

But I have an 05 header panel and 05 harley lights from rockauto and they are very good. I was worried about maybe cheaper plastic so i've clear coated the lights to make them last longer

I just did this myself. Replaced headlights and turn signals and it took 10 years off the truck. Parts were a direct fit and took less than an hour to complete.

I got the clear headlights and blinker lights on ebay for $70. Fit just fine. I put a bead of clear silicone around the edges to make sure they are sealed. Sometimes aftermarket light are not sealed correctly so they build up condensation.

I have them for my 2000, they are a direct replacement. They look much better than the yellow ones I took off.
