Default Annnnnnd....... *sigh* :(

I got my 2006 Corners in yesterday, and decided to install them today.
After finagling with the headlights and adjustments for an hour, I just could not get them straight.
Upon further investigation, I come to find they're aftermarket headlights.

This makes me sad.

Corners look great, but the actual headlamps look like shit.
They were already ****eyed, but I suspected it was due to the aftermarket clear corner and the slight accident the truck was in (no major damage, just a little cosmetic).

So... I guess I'll try to find some OEM headlights and possibly a grille, as I'm not to keen on the billet grille, even painted black.

I'm a sucker for stock I suppose.

The more I look at it, the more it's starting to seem like the billet grille is pressing the front surround out on all ends and making it look like the headlights are fucked up...

Did you get rear ended?

Pic# 3 seems like your fender is poped out or it's your hood?

Anyways, I can't notice it in Pic#1

A while back, my wifes brother (who I bought the truck from) got backed into by a large Dodge truck... large meaning lifted without a dropdown hitch.
His towball smashed the headlight, corner light, fender, and bumper.
I noticed the hood gap as well.

They replaced all the damaged parts. I did not see any crumple behind the headlights, so I know thats not the issue.
It's frustrating.
But oh well.
My daily looks like shit and my racecar is mint. Something is awry lol

Yup.


I'm about to upload a short video.
Part of the problem is a mis-aligned fender, grille, and grille surround.

It won't fit your truck. ^

For what it's worth, I have my stock set of headlights if you want to buy em. They have slight swirling but it's nothing bad. You only see it in direct sunlight. PM me if you're interested. $55 shipped.

See I'm not that kind of person though.
I figure when you spend good money on something, it should be right.

I played around with them some more, and took the front grille fascia off .
Some of the clips on it were a little bent, so I straightened them out.
Still not perfect, but its ALOT better.
