Default Headlights help

Hey guys, I wanted to get some halo projector headlights for my 2011 XLT, but I can only find them for earlier models. I did read on many sites and forums that the models from 2006 to 2011 are exactly the same, headlight size- wise. I just don't want to buy them and find out that they don't fit. Can anyone give me the 100% confirmation that if I get headlights for models from 2006 to 2010, they will fit my 2011? Thanks (:

Ok, well I'm on the site reading about them. The thing is, though, I really like the look of the halo projectors. Do you know if they have projectors that look similar to the halos?
