Default 98-01 Headlights in a 97

Would I be able to fit 98-01 headlights in a 97 Ranger?

I desperately want to purchase some halo headlights but as far as I can tell none exist for a 93-97.

The 98-01 look really similar..

Any ideas or suggestions?

I think you would need to put a new rad support in your truck in order to get those newer headlights in

1998 and 2001 lights are different

2001 - 2011 are the same.

This manufacturer disagrees.

So in order to fit these I would need to modify things?

Any other ideas? Anyone find Halos for a 97?

What do they disagree with? it says 98-01 that is correct. You 97 is significantly different than the 98-01 and newer trucks.

I thought you had a 97 and wanted halo but all they have are 93-97. I don't see what the question is.

** o you said none exist. my bad. what about those links i posted above??

1998~2000 are the same.
2001~2011 are the same

2001~2011 wont fit on anything older even if a website says so.

I like how the eBay ones look.

I don't think those have the halo, but it seems I might have to settle for them instead.

It looks like some minor wiring needs to be done.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the stock headlight only has one bulb?

This headlight has a projector and a high beam it appears.
