Not sure where you can get them, but I know they cost a s**tload. And, you have to cut up the header panel to make them fit.

I don't get why? There are aftermarket one-pieces but not stock looking.

Just shows you around how much you need to cut out of the header panel for these to clear, then the headlights mount with one bolt by the grille, and 2 ontop of the header panel











He also baked his headlights and removed the amber corner

Good luck getting them, a guy on RPS used to get them for people Mike 2.3 PM him and see if he can get you a set.


Dromlanc- They are not after market, they are stock on Brazilian Ranger hence they are called Brazilian Headlights

Mexican trucks have the same lights dont they? Take a trip to Mexico but be prepared to pay out the ****.

Or get the Ebay ones. They dont look as stock because of the halos, but if you dont like them, dont hook them up.

yeah! Once you mod the header panel, if you wanna go back to stock you're gonna need a new one to put the 2 pieces back in!

i am thinking the aftermarket 1 piece lights are probably easier to install... plug and play type deal (except the halo wiring)

walking to the car. hitting the lock button, the parking lights and halos flash



Walk around up front. Yes, thats Prince playing in the background. Halos only.


Going through the various motions.



One on the road. Note the lights are aimed too low for my tastes. I still will probably put the Silverstars back in. I liked them.

^^ so with those you lose the ability to leave just the solid amber lights on right? The halos replace that on the light switch?

Does anyone have the ford Part number (not the manufacturer number stamped on the lights) for the "Brazilian Lights"? The impala guys use to like the special Export only lights "T84" on their Impalas up until some better substitutes were made. Back up until last year you could walk into any GM dealer and they could order the lights for you as long as you had the number (most dealer parts counter people are too stupid or lazy to lookup export parts). If they are a Ford Sourced part, I would be shocked if you couldn't get them at a dealer.

The halos are tapped into the parking light power so they will come on whenever the parking light is on now. The amber light of course still comes on as well. I suppose you could run a separate switch to the halos but meh, i like it like this.
