What I Learned Today Removing My Headlamps

Removing the front grill is very easy. Only 2 bolts, 2 of those hole clips, and 2 little tiny tabs you push in.

There are 4 bolts for the headlamps.
2 on top which are very easy to remove. 1 on bottom corner by grill. It's slightly covered by the bumper, so it's a little harder to remove and put back in properly.
The 4th bolt is a bitch to get to. I was going to try to make it easy on my myself by remove the wheel well lining, but I couldnt figure out how to get it off....

So basicly, I just went under the truck and felt around until I got the bolt loose with my socket. Pain in the ass.

After all the bolts are remove, it's still a pain in a the ass to remove the actual housing, from the truck. Gotta angle, wiggle, and until you get the right combination. Same thing putting it back into place. UGH.

Nothing like remove my 02 Taco headlights, that was super easy.

The Eagle Eye or whatever brand of headlights look almost exactly like OEM, except for the fit. It's close enough to work, but will be off slightly.

You can pull of two or three clips off the lower side of the inner fender well, and pull it back far enough to get the bitch bolt.

Mine was easy as pie, I cutout the inner fenders ages ago when I got my lift. Just a matter of throwing a ratchet on it
