2005+ Headlight conversion

I want to put the newer headlights on my 2000 f250 but am unsure of what parts are necessary. Can I go to the dealer and just buy new lights and cut and trim to make them fit? Or, do I need to buy a new grille, etc....
Where is the best place to get the new lights?
I know there is still the issue of the different pigtails for the bulbs. I will deal with that later.

You can find lights on ebay for a decent price. I have the Eagle eye Harley style lights and theyre of good quality. You can get them for $150. Theres always the stock silver housing lights on there also if you dont want harley's.

Me too today

It sure does make a dusty mess! Had the fan blowing on my cuts to direct it away from me. I should wear a dust mask next time.
