i been doing some searching, someone let me know if this is correct.

if i get the 05 header panel, the lights grille and bumper will be a bolt on affair? no zip ties etc?

also the newer headlights plug right in?

parts list is bumper with brackets, headlights, grille and headerpanel?

thanks in advance.

I didn't do the header panel but I believe you are correct, that everything will bolt on and no zip ties. However you will still need to do something about the plugs for the lights.

You have to change the plugs for the headlights. The 2004 and older use a 9007 bulb and the 2005 and newer use a 9008 bulb. Cut the wires and put a new plug on.

I think Certifit.com has everything for the conversion. DON"T get the "Eagle Eyes" headlights from Ebay, they suck!

So you don't have a "fish eye" about 30 ft in front of you coming from your right light? How is the gap between the fender and the light on the passengerside? No water has ever gotten in your lens? How does the light project out? Should I go on.

Three other guys around me have them and have every one of those problems metioned above. Not to mention the guy that sells them is a total d!ck. When I told him about the fish eye he said he had never heard of that and that there was nothing wrong with my light. He refused to warranty them even though the add says one year warranty!

whell depends on where you get them i got mine from a reputable company, and when they came in one had a broken tab on it, called them up and had a free replacement on the way the same day.

only way to tell is by actually looking at the lights, ford will have ford in the emblem on the lights and eagle eyes will say eagle eyes at the bottom instead of ford.
