3rd brake light and tailights are super easy to install would be wasting money to pay for someone to do.

Headlights are moderate to install. I am pretty sure someone on here would come help you if you asked.

They would charge you A LOT if they even would install them. Any shop is gonna kill you on labor to install them.

3rd brake light unsrew the 2 phillips head screws. Remove original 3rd brake light. remove the bulbs from it. Place lights in new one. install in reveres.

Brake lights lower tailgate remove 2 phillips head screws on the inside where the tailgate closes. On the out side of the tail light remove the 2 phillips head screws. Pull out assembly. Remove sockets with lights. The new lights will have a plug you connect to the factory harness and reinstall.

Headlights you will need to run a power wire but that is pretty easy.

PASCO, from what I know the 3rd brake light and the tails would be pretty easy to do and I am a guy thats fearful of installing a mustang dome light, try atleast the tailights, should be easy to do.

99% of dealers or shops will NOT install third party parts. They don't want to be liable if the parts break during installation, or soon after.
