Icon5 How do you adjust the headlight on a 2000 Ranger?

I just istalled a set of halo projector headlights on my 2000 Ranger. They are very bright, but they seem to be hitting the ground about 2 feet in front of my truck which makes it very hard to see. How do I go about adjusting the headlight so that the beam comes up?

you have to turn some screws on the back of the headlamps( I believe there are 3-4 of them) . But first you have to pull the clips off that hold those screws in place...

Well I checked in my owners manual and the only info it gave me was that my headlamps were aimed properly from the factory. If they need to reaimed it said that it needs to be taken to the dealership. There has to be another way of doing this. There is no way that everyone that has swapped out headlights on a 98-2000 Ranger has had to take their trucks in to reaim the headlights on them.

if its anythign like my 2001 (not sure.. havent compared the differences) you can access them with a pair of pliers.. right on the backside of the light.. two big screws about 3 inches long sticking out the back end.

I have a question. I also put some Halo projector lights on my 98 Ranger, and the high beam and low beam are the opposite. So when I turn the low beam on, my high beams come on, and the high beams are my low beams. do you know if there is anyway to fiz this?
