if you have patience, do the black headlight mod.... very inexpensive, and looks great if you take your time.

I would consider 25 bucks for shipping ok. 50+ is out of the question. I ship stuff UPS several times a week, and the only time it gets that exspensive is 2nd or next day air.

$140 shipped to your door on ebay. That's one of the unfortunate things about ebay, the sellers don't pay as much to ebay to sell their items, because they charge insane amount of shipping and a cheaper "buy" price. It blows.......

One thing I can say, is that if your get a ebay set, you have two sets of headlamps and two sets of corners. Just in case something might happendown the road......stock replacement headlamps can run in the $100 per pair range.

Black taillamps, you can nightshade them. It's basically tint in a rattle can. Alot of guys niteshade their taillights and third brake lights.

The 2 piece design they started in 2001. And yes you can do a 01+ conversion you need a 01-03 hood, header panel, grille, lights, bumper and valance though.

To put the 01+ headlamps, you need a 01-03 header panel, grille, and lights. No need for a new hood.

But...

I found these for your truck...
