Halo Headlights

Hey there, so on my last days off i tryed to install a set of Halo Headlights on my 02 PSD, i bought them from a guy at work who has a 06 an purchased the wrong ones...
Anyways i was just wondering if anyone has put them in there truck because there is some trimming to be done an i wasnt to sure if i had to remove the factory adjuster to install them. I couldnt find anywhere online to help me. Any help would be very appreciated... thanks...

Just wondering anyone might have heard how much has to be trimmed and if that adjuster has to come off? Thanks again for any help...

for mine i had to trim fiberglass and some metal. also the ones i bought only had 1 adjuster and it was on top. the screws on the bottom mounted right into place. i ended up cutting a little more than i originally thought but it all ended up looking great

In order to get the 06 style lights to fit in your truck you will need to cut along the red lines shown in the pic.

You will also need a wiring harness

EDIT: The pics show what it looks like after the cutting

EDIT #2: I think I misread your post, what body style are the lights for?

is there anyway you can post a pic of the front and back of the headlights.. if they're the same as mine u do need to cut out 1 of the adjuster spots and also the projector makes the light socket deeper so i had to cut some metal too

I had the same problem and found out the a little heat from a torch and the back of the headlight housing and then push it up against the frame in place and it started to fit. After about 3 times of the heat they fit great. Just watch the heat as not to deform it too bad. Keep a wet rag handy to cool it down.
