My Headlight Swap

Thought I'd do the headlight swap. Wasn't too hard. But the new headlights only go in tweaked as you can see. I had t cut off a piece of plastic on both sides to square them up. Now they are jus fine.

I'm thinking about doing a set of '03 lights on mine. Keep the turn signal/paring light assembly and just replacing the head light with the clear style headlight instead if the milk bottle type the earlier SD trucks came with.

The '03 style are cheap on rockauto.com

I'd like to 05-07 or 08-10 my whole front end, my dad has a 6.4 and his is exact same color as my 01, so finding a white truck with a good front clip can't be to hard

Really? No modding? Im assuming you either had to replace the header panel or cut the stock one to fit those lights. I wouldn't quite call that "no modding"

Harley Headlights are so loose and sloppy they probably did just fit right in. Ugly too. But glad he made them work.

uhhhh. Really? Most would say that about the lights you used. I hope you realize how ridiculous that sounds.

Good job on the light swap and minor modification to make them fit properly. Turned out good....but comparing the ones you used to the Harley OE style headlights I believe most would agree your above comment couldn't be more off base.

I didn't post my photos for some jerk to insult them and say how theirs are better. Treat others as you want to be treated yourself is what i grew up learning. If you like throwing insults at other peoples work then be prepared to get insults at your own work. Nobody should be insulting other peoples efforts, but I guess thats what makes ZackMcF feel good about himself.
