swaping to black headlights

I was wanting to know if its possible to just swap out headlights w/o the delima of re-aiming the black ones...do the adj. screws pop off and I could put them on the black set and call it a day?

thanks!

No. it's actually a pain. They DON'T pop off. They have their own, that aim kinda upwards. I just got pissed and broke off their ones, and put in my from my stockers. Still kinda aimed weird.

But they look great. (And they cover the road fine.)

well I noticed the ones on my 07 are so easy to remove compared to my 93... I think I'll be using my stock bolts if I can... cause I hate re-aiming...

Yeah, when I switched mine out..I did it right before I had to stop by the dealer for some other work....I asked them to re-aim my lights..and they tok care of it for free.

MUCH easier to just have the dealer do it....even if they change you a little labor to do it, but if you bought the truck from them, I bet they will hook you up.

Aiming headlights is easy, just find a flat road and point em in the trees! lol no jk
I never have any trouble re-aiming headlights. Maybe thats just me...
