Hey yall I just got a pair of 06 headlights for a good deal. 190 brand spankin new from a auto part warehouse down the street. Now all I need is the grill and the front bumper. The grill and bumper I tend just to take off a salvaged super duty, hopefully a white one so I dont have to worry about painting it to match the paint, lol. I talked to a ford dealer and they said 250 for the chrome grill I was like :doh: Anyways after all the parts are gathered what else is needed for the headlights, grill, and front bumper to snap right on with out the cutting or using zip tie

ebay. i found everything for mine. also the top screws on the grill line right up, you would need a new header pannel to make the clips work, but sence you got lights you will need it anyway... lol. ebay!

Indeed the header panel will be needed if you don't want to cut. There is a how-to here somewhere that shows how to cut the 99-04 panel to make the new headlamps work, doesn't lOok too hard. I know you mentioned you did not want to cut, but it may be worth looking at, save yourself a few bucks...:thumb:

You will also need to change the harness for the new headlight, 9007 vs. H13's, or go HID :thumb:

Post some pics when you done, let us know how it goes....

not 100% sure, but I think so, my bumper had them already in when I did my swap. I'm sure someone else has done it, or tried to do it...LOL

I have a little less in mine than that, but yeah I would say that's prolly average, I just got lucky:thumb:

04TurboStroker has a good point, take your time and shop around, eBay craigslist, here, etc. you can put it together pretty cheap.
