Updated plugs at the headlights. Either get them from the dealer (waaay $$,where I got mine from) or get the DFuser conversion kit. And you're either going to need to do lots of cutting on your header panel, or swap in a new one from a 2005-2007 truck.

I got my lights off Ebay, after market, but so far so good... ran about $210 with shipping. Got the GOS Racing relay harness, that was $70 with shipping.

Install took about 2 hours, a side grinder and a wiz wheel/cut off disk, a sawzall with fine tooth blade, minor hand tools. For sure, take the header panel out and cut it... it's easy to do. I had a picture printed off and in front of me when I did, some one posted it around here somewhere with a pic/drawing of where to cut. With that in front of ya, and the new lights in hand, you'll see where needs trimed to work right. The new wiring harnes was plug-and-play easy, however, I did have one of the relays go bad a week or so ago, but was replaced at the local parts store for about $10.

Way better lights... get them adjusted, and wow!

Send a message via AIM to Raul@Stealth Automotive
you will have to cut up your header panel.. check out this link: 05-07 CONVERSION instructions. ( here )

and you will need something like this: Stealth Automotive Inc - Lighting :: headlight Blulbs :: 9007 to H13 converstion harness

or if you want to run HID's we can make our HID's work with the old OEM wires into the new headlights..

let me know if you have any questions

No need for relays unless you are running higher wattage bulbs.

The header panel comes out easily... remove the grill, it's just a few screws along the top and a snap clip at the bottom, and the header panel is just behind it... the headlights can come out attached to it, I found it easier to remove the whole mess than try to take the headlights out first. You'll see what I mean when you get to it...

I made it hard on myself, I had the grill guard in the way like you see in my sig pic... I was able to remove and install the headder panel with the grill guard in place.
