Headlights Depot in Pompano Beach has an amazingly large selection of lights in all price ranges, I've done about 4 trucks with their lights and have no complaints. I'd post a link but can't, not enough posts yet.

I just bought a set from Headlights Depot...
The 05-07 headlights upgrade for my Y2K-X...
I haven't had time yet, to take the old ones out ,and cut the header panel to put them in...
Looking forward to upgrading the looks of my truck
In the box, the headlights look pretty good
They come with everything you need ....
Bulbs, Pig tail adapter, and some inadequate instructions...
Price was good...$107 ????

Well I have purchased both an original Ford headlight ($144) and TYC ($26) headlight in the Aero style with the 2002+ lens design that has a smooth lens vs the earlier model years fluted lens.

I was fully expecting to see a bit lesser quality in the TYC which would be completely understandable given the price difference of $118.

I am surprised to say that even with my trusty magnifying glass I cannot find anything superior in the quality or build of the Motorcraft. In fact, the TYC actually weighs slightly more. The molds are nearly identical. Inside the lens, the designs are identical. The seams where the clear lens meets the grey housing appears equally sealed for water tightness.

The only visual difference are the adjuster screws on the Ford are metal while the TYC are plastic.

The only test remaining is to see how the plastic lens on the aftermarket TYC holds up to UV light over a few years but up here at 8,300' I always treat my plastic with the Meguiars Plast-X Clear Plastic Protector or similar wax so I can't really do that UV test.

Bottom line, RT just saved me about $236 by suggesting the TYC brand from Rock Auto.

Thanks RT.

Still happy with them? Got any pics of them installed? Any issues with adjustment?

Yes, still happy.
Just installed a pair on the 2nd truck since it makes the trucks look so well taken of.

Equal to factory originals in all regards...i.e adjustments and light dispersement.

installation is simple except removing the old ones is a bit of a PIA. Much easier to remove batteries to gain access but driver side is still a bit tricky. Its the bottom attachment that is tough but the two upper attachments just require removal of 2 clips. This would be the case for any Aero style light.

I'm sorry to report that the Dorman ones I bought back when from Summit Racing both had the little chrome piece inside of the light that covers the actual bulb both popped loose after about 6 months of use and have been rattling around inside of the lenses for a couple of years now. To tell you th e truth I can't see a difference in the light output so I've just left them for now...kind of tacky, I know...but they work. I just wouldn't ever recommend the Dorman brand of lights to anyone after my experience with them.

Sorry about your issue with the headlights. On my AKKORN lights, there seems to be access to the inside via retainer clips holding the lens. Do you not have that on the Dorman? See the silver clips on mine. There are three more clips at the bottom of each light.

I have had the TYC brand for 10 years or more. The lens is still clear. I just ordered a new TYC passenger headlight because I hit a deep pothole and broke the headlight where it adjusts.

The OEM manufacturer for the early models 99-04 is a company called Visteon. They are not made by Ford or Motorcraft.

IIRC Visteon is a ford company and has been for years. I used to work at Ford Microelectonics/visteon over 20yrs ago.

I recently replaced my headlights on my 03 with factory ford/visteon lights as i will not use aftermarket parts. I bought them from a ford dealer on ebay, paid $226 shipped for the pr. also bought better quality bulbs (not the high dollar ones either)which made a huge difference. I can actually see the road at night now.

just in case, I also bought the headlight harness from dfuser because i didn't feel like sourcing my own parts this time around. I think it helped but not as much as many claim. the quality is good but could still be better.

biggest improvement was headlight housings and bulbs. they came with sylvania bulbs but I took those out.

INFRNL,
The UV clouds up headlight housings very bad here.
I replaced my first trucks headlights using genuine Ford from White Bear Lake. I replaced my current trucks housings with aftermarket (TYC ?) and I think the light pattern is slightly worse. The moldings might be slightly different than genuine Ford.

I do pay the extra for Sylvania SilverStar Ultra Halogen. They last about 18-24 months for $25/each.
