I dont beleave there is a projector for the 5th gen. also make a signature with your truck model 4x4 4x2 what not so when you ask questions its alot easier to explain knowing unimplied info. also there is a EDIT button below your post so you can just click edit and put in info or correct spelling if you notice it, instead of creating another post. btw welcome to RF...

Yeah check out the picture threads started by RangerBoy03LvlII or HighRollerII and look at how their headlights are painted on the inside. I think that's the coolest mod you can do for headlights by far.

I did the headlight mod and when you're back in Melbourne I could probably help you do it too. At the very least you can inspect mine and see what you think in person.

Well no the clears don't match the my headlights, lol. I did the mod, never got around to modding the clears. I only know of one person that has modded the clear corners.

No they aren't. And Zach's right, no headlight replacement for our gen.

Headlight mod is the way to go, if you dont' like your's stock.

No you bake them to take them apart. Gotta soften the glue that holds the cover to the housing.
