    So I have picked up condensation inside my headlamp and found out my dust seal wasn't seated properly. Does anyone know if just keeping the headlight on will evaporate the condensation or am I going to have to do something else to get the condensation out?

    Take the headlight off the truck and get either a blow dryer or heat gun and blow hot air where the light bulb goes. Takes it away. As far as the dust boot, I dint have one and mine dont have any condensation at any given time. Might look for a crack or rock chip somewhere

    After I done my retro (over two years ago) I didn't even bother putting my dust covers on. No worries, no water.
