Headlight interchange

What headlamps will interchange into my 2000 SD without modifications and still use stock bulbs and wiring? Also are the newer ones one pc. units? Thanks, Fred

2002-04 units will still be 2 pc, and require no modification of the hedder panel. They are brighter, and have the clear turn signal lens. However, I have installed the 1 pc. later style 2005-07 lights in mine, and it's not hard to do. The light output is much better, in my opinion. The lights use a higher wattage bulb, and an aftermarket relay style harness that plugs into your stock one for proper control is also a peice of cake to install. The whole set up, lights with bulbs, and the new harness cost me about $300 total. Worth it, and I plan to do the same thing to my newest addition, a '99 F250.

I used the 02-04 headlights & put silverstar bulbs in with the relay harness from GOS Performance, it made a BIG difference from the old frosty ones.

thats what i did also, except i bought some aftermarket clears markers. the 02-04 markers would go really well with the 99-01 headlights if someone didnt want to change out their headlights, just to get rid of the orange markers.

Funny you said that about the markers Gary, I guess I'm the only one that really likes the original markers...lol I guess maybe the color of my truck (gold) makes a difference but I think the clear corners look chezzy (ricer) so I kept mine & just swapped headlights with a 04 a work

The 05-07 1 piece headlights are sweet. I put them on my 99 before I did the full 05 front end. They did look pretty good with the chrome grille. Here's a pic for you.

i will have to take some pics of mine. i got the clear ones that still had the amber reflectors in the corner, to avoid that ricer look. i would say the total package looks more like the 05+ without actually going to the 05+ lights.
