Here it is:

These directions are the same for the corner lights. If you decide to buy clear corners and wanna black them out also. Only difference is you don't have to mask anything off with the corners.


Tools Needed

Oven
Flat tip screwdriver
Masking tape
Exact o knife or razor blade
Flat Black spray paint, or color of your choice
Glass cleaner
Microfiber cloth
Silicone adhesive
Oven glove or towel

Step 1:
First you remove your stock headlamps from the truck. pull up on the two black retaining clips that hold them in place.

Step 2:
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Or the lowest setting possible. Which ever you are more comfortable with. I chose 170


Step 3:
Put the headlamp on the middle rack for 5 mins. keep a close eye on it to make sure it’s not melting. You can use a cookie sheet if you want


Step 4:
Carefully remove the HOT headlamp from the oven. Use your flat tip screwdriver to pry apart the lens from the housing. If at first it does not want to come apart do not force it. Place headlamp back into oven for 5 more minutes.


Step 5:
Clean the "gasket" surface of any left over silicone

Step 6:
Now masking off what you wanna keep from being painted. Take your time doing this. Be sure the edges nice and tight to prevent the paint from running. Use the exact o knife or razor blade to make the corners nice and clean and even

Step 7:
Now it's time to paint. First clean the parts to be painted with some a glass cleaner use the lint free cloth. Be sure there is no debris or dirt, or grease or fingerprints, or anything on the areas to be painted.

Step 8:
Once you finish painting set in the sun to dry for a good 2 hours so when you pull of the tape it wont take the paint with it.

Step 9:
Now putting them back together. Clean all the chrome parts so they are nice and clean and free of any fingerprints or anything else.

Step 10:
Now take your water proof silicone and run a nice bead around the edge where the lens sits.

Step 11:
Place the lens back on top firmly pushing down. Wipe off any silicone the pushes out.

Step 12:
Place headlight in sunlight allowing it to dry. Take your exact o knife or razor blade and clean up any more silicone.

Step 13:
Now reinstall your headlamps into your truck and enjoy a cheap mod.

Thanks I followed your how to ^^ really helped with the headlights I kinda got anxious and pryd on one too hard instead of sticking it back in the oven like you suggested and it broke a little but I just used some lock tight trim glue and silicone to seal it and it was good as new

Looks awesome man. I'm real happy to see what the bumpers look like since you and I have the exact same body and color Ranger. I was planning on doing this next week but was hesitant on how it would look.. you my friend have convinced me!!
