6.0 headlights in a 7.3?

I found a thread where a guy cut down a 2005 grille and put it in his 7.3. I' ve been wondering for a long time now how different the 6.0 hedlights are from the 7.3 ones because those 6.0 lights are *****in. Maybe the the lines form the hood or fenders are different on the trucks? I would like to know if any one has tried this or knows why it will or won't work thanks Tom

Are you talking about the 03.5-04 6.0's or the 05-07 6.0's?

I would think you could cut the 99-04 header panel from the rear, to fit the newer style lights without the grille and bumper etc. If it's just the lights your after, may be worth looking into. There is a thread here somewhere about it.

You can do it no problem. Tons of guys have done it. All you have to do is Dremel out the header panel and you win. IIRC strokin_7.3 on FTE has the best writeup I have ever seen.

I've looked on dfuser and they claim they have the 07 headlights that fit the 99-04 trucks. I don't know if it means without modification or if you still have to hack up the header panel
