    yes it can be done,,,not a big deal. if you dont need to have drls then dont worry about it and just pull the fuse

    Thinking a little more on it,,,,you might need a new core support. Yours is set for the one light. The dual lights might use a different support. Ck lmc truck .com. they have a lot of stuff for your tk

    Ok. Sometimes looking at what it will become will help with what parts you need as well

    You're going to need new park light/turn signal assemblies and side markers as well. I don't think you need the core support but I'm not positive.
