2001 F350 headlight and parking light update

Good morning everyone. I'm new here and just bought a 2001 F350. I would like to put some 2002-2004 headlights and parking lights on it to update the look along with the 05-07 grille. Do these headlights bolt right in with no modification? Thank you kindly.

Welcome to the forum!! I'm pretty sure they will just bolt right up, but not 100%.

They will 100% bolt right in - it is the best thing I've done to both my Super Dutys thus far. I drive A LOT at night and the output is so much better.

Rockauto.com - the TYC lights for roughly $60 shipped/pair are the way to go. They come with new bulbs in them even. The top two adjusters I use and then unthread the bottom to get the old lights out - then take them off the new lights and use the old adjusters down low. It took me maybe 15 minutes to put both headlights in either pickup.

The little metal clips that hold the lights in can be a Pain in the *** - use needle nose pliers and a flat head screw driver to sort of pop them out - you'll see when you look at it.

Good luck! You'll be amazed at how much better the lighting is!

And an added benefit is that it doesn't make the truck look so "grungy" it adds a much cleaner look up front, especially with an 05 grill (like I have on my '01). Add the bumper too and it looks like a completely different truck!

if you go the 05 grille route, and keeping your 99-04 bumper, cut 3/8in off the bottom of it. Fits perfect then.

I didn't change the corner/marker lights on either of my trucks. I prefer the amber ones over the clear personally.

How is the light pattern on the rock auto headlights? I bought some cheap ones on eBay and they suck!

These are made by TYC and they have a good pattern to them - I drive, like I said previously, all hours of the night for work in the oil field (I go when they call). I do have them adjusted a tad high, but I want to see whats ahead as much time as I spend on the road - up to 6,000 mi/mo.

When I bought my 2000, the headlights were the very first thing I ordered for them.

I ordered the headlight assembly's from rock auto and found the 02-04 style parking/turn signal assembly's from partsgeek. I also ordered the chrome 05-07 grill from MKM Customs. Thanks again for the help guys.
