Default Will these headlights work?

According to the seller they will work, but I figured I would check w/ the Ranger "gods" about it. And if they will work, will they be a "plug and play" type of thing, or would they take a little work to make them work?

Yes they will work

sorta plug and play you have to tap the connections for the halo feature and LED part

So you know on your 05 there will be a gap between the light and hood a lot more than there is now

Gap like these

Only way to not have the gap is to find the plastic piece for stopped putting on the trucks in 2004

Ok, I am working from memory here, but I know that there is a small gap between my hood and lights already. But I'm trying to figure out what you mean by the "plasic piece"

It's just a black plastic piece that goes over the headlights ford stopped putting them on trucks after 2004

Number 7 in this picture goes over the top of the headlight

Ohhh, Ok. Kewl deal. that is probably something I can pick up at a junk yard or a dealership. That is if it would still fit on an 2005.

Ya, I totally agree. It will leave it gapless, and more slick.
