    Just got done with my headlight mod. Everything turned out really well, hopefully they won't fog up like some I have read on here! Thanks everyone for all the help and info on how to do it. You guys really know what your talking about and give us newbies an easy way to mod our trucks! Thanks again!! :thumbsup:

    If your really worried about them fogging, i would put another bead of caulking around them just in case. Mine went through a whole winter without fogging, but then when i washed the truck water somehow got in.

    I really caulked the crap out of it, think I will wait and see. How did you get the water out? Did you have to take them back apart?

    Washed my truck today and really sprayed the crap out of my headlights. After I dryed it off the inside of the lights were dry and no fogging!!! So, does that mean I'm in the clear in the future or do I still need to worry?

    If you put caulk all around the edges, you should be fine. Wouldn't worry about it, until (if) it happens. I put a little caulk around mine and no fogging / water issues

    I actually had a real fun time doing mine! It was a real PITA to get them apart, but now that they are done I'm wishing my dad would let me do his! If we lived closer I would do yours for free just for the fun of it! :D
