HEADLIGHT SWAP

Has anybody ever done a headlight swap. My 03 has the sealed beam, industrial style headlights. What will I need, just lights or new brackets too ? Also will the 06 lights and grill fit?

yes your old brackets will work, but you may need to cut some to get the 06 lights to fit in there...I used a dremel with a carbide cut-off wheel, worked really good!...The grill will fit to..again with a little trimming in the lower left and right corner to clear your 03 bumper...unless you went with an 05-07 bumper then you wouldn't have to trim the grille...I just kept my bumper and coated the top part with some bed liner and then pin striped it...looks very nice when done right.

Good luck!

This is my early 99

Very nice looking ! Did you have normal headlight from factory though, because mine has the small sealed beam lights with a black border and a black grill.
