They dont come off. Hook your finger around the tab and pull up towards the sky and they will pull up and the headlight will come out.

Unless they changed it all you have to do on the 04 is pull those 2 tabs up and the head light will pull out.

98-00 uses multiple clips to hold them on, similar to the 01+, but the 01+ uses one big clip, where 98-00 uses multiple small ones i believe.

imo....doesn't match the truck. Too....uh.....unmatching? lol....idk how to describe it. But hell, if it works for you, that's all that matters. Maybe if the grille was black and the bumpers were black and the wheels were black, it'd flow better.

looks good to me, but I agree paint the bumper and grill black to match. Then it would look killer.
