    So what do you think this is the same truck before we changed the nose over to a 2007.
    The truck is a 1999 F250 with over 260,000 miles on it.
    I also just added a programmer to it and a trick that when you put your high beams on it also keeps your low beans on WOW talk about bright and it cost me 1 buck :)

    Off the top of my head it was about 1200 for everything but I think they sell it as a kit now for less I just went with some factory parts.

    It's cool to walk out to the truck and see that :)

    damn you even did the 05-07 bumper nice . most guys don't they get the cut down model off ebay for 300 clams and call it good . IMO looks so much better with the grill not hacked down . thats they way ford should have done it 05-07 styling with 7.3 power plant :D

    What did you have to do to make the headlights work together like that? Was it a kit or just something you found in the wiring that you can do? I know i can get a kit for my truck for about 17 bucks but i would have to order it online, but, if i can jsut do a little bit of wiring on my own if it's easy enough, i'll go that route!! :) Any info would be great!

    Truck looks brand new with that upgrade!! Awesome job!

    to make the head lights work like this all I had to do is use a diode.
    A diode will send power only one way so when my high beams are on it send power to my low beam relay to turn them on also.
    Also I put on a relay setup for the head lights you gain 1 volt power so it makes them brighter also.

    I'll try to draw up something to make more sense today but it's simple

    I'm still working on a wiring drawing so it's going to be a few days work is crazy right now.
    You can do this to all the SuperDuty trucks from 1999 to 2004, as for the kit I'll have to find the place that was selling the whole kit. I'll post back soon.

    Also they don't have a full chrome bumper but I am going to change the filler panel with a painted one soon.

    Did you have to do any cutting to the plastic behind the lights and grille in order to make to new lights fit or did you get a new grille and head light mounting panel also?

    I'd like to do the same think but was going to do everything except the bumper for now and i know you can buy headlights, grille and a wiring harness to make it all work. There also is a little bit of cutting needed to make to new lights fit properly if you don't get a new rear backing for the grille and lights to mount onto.

    Looks very nice, what a difference.

    I got the new header panel it's only 100 bucks the head light kit I got was from a place in TX that sells factory head lights with the wiring harness for about $450 the grill was about 250 and we used all the factory bumper braces but if you got a front bumper take off it might have most of the brackets you need.

    Thanks everyone I am very happy with how it came out. now I might add 2008 towing mirrors :D
