I also put 02-04 headlights in today, but mine is an XL. A little different because mine had the sealed beam lights. If your doing a swap from sealed beams let me know. There are a couple of things to look out for.

OK, I am going to slightly hijack... When upgrading headlights to the 02-04 headlights you do not have to do anything but swap, right? no trimming/harness changes?

When upgrading to 05-07 headlights exactly WHAT ALL is required to put them in these trucks?

To upgrade to the 02 to 04,I did nothing but plug them in.Not sure about the other years mentioned.
Sorry for the Highjack OP.

Mine is a '99 XL. If your upgrading from the sealed beam its a little different, for me at least. There is a harness for the 6054 plug for the sealed beams that connects from the 9007 plug. You follow the wires about 6" back and the 9007 will be behind the header panel. Also 2 of the 3 the holes on each side that the lights pop into didn't hold for me. I had to use some hitch pins to hold them tight. That part was probably not common, but I guess can happen. The 9007 plug is something that took me a little bit to figure out because its not visible.
