I wanna do this but I'm too afraid of ruining a good set of headlights. Looks good though!

Thanks man!

You could buy an aftermarket set of headlights, however I learned today that the aftermarket headlights are made out of crap plastic that when heated gets soft a lot quicker than the stock headlights do. I'm glad I have my stock headlights back in now.

No prob! I've been looking ones like these:


http://m.ebay.com/itm/291120782151?f...Model%3ARanger

Hopefully they won't get too hot if I was to get them and put my HID kit in. But I'd rather ruin a set of aftermarket lights than OEM. OEM is always more expensive.

Not a bad deal. I think the lenses are fine. I used one of the aftermarket lens on my stock housing. The actual back piece of the housing is what feels cheap. I only heated it to 200 degrees and I could bend the plastic every which way I wanted. The stock housings didn't do that.

Yeah. Well if I was to get 'em, I wouldn't do any heating or anything. Just put 'em on and that's it! Lol

I can't believe I didn't do the lights sooner. I dislike any chrome on this truck. Now it looks much better.

I only need one corner light, and that's not what was ordered. Nothing you mentioned is what I ordered.
