    The work truck grill and headlights were a step down from the dual beams. Yes you can change it over you will need to get the headlight wiring harness, Headlights, marker lights and Grill.. It really is quite an easy conversion... If you take a look at your local Craigslist you can usually find someone who is parting out their truck and get the parts that you need for cheap.

    HEY!! Who are you callin' normal?!

    Enjoy your individuality, and drive that rig. That's not to say you couldn't paint the grill to match, or contrast, your truck. The gray (arjent) actually already matches the stripe, but black would be cool, too. There are also companies that offer upgrade replacement lights that will fit right in (pilot, icpm? I can never remember the right initials, and Hella). It's a composite housing, with a relampable bulb. I want them for mine, but my wife hid her purse...

    You could also stop by the local hardware and ask for scrap plexiglas and make headlight covers - a little 3M tape, some tint, could be cool for about ten bucks...

    Nice truck, and good luck with it,
    normal, geez
