You westerners speak strange words lol. Anyway I bought a set of black housing "harley" head lights/corners. I think It will look great. I also ordered a low beam HID kit for my dads truck. Going to paint his grill black and possibly put a very light coat of niteshade on his tails.

Dad has a crew cab which has a completely different style tail light. It is just like the 97-03 flaresides.
