these won't fit since your 2008 is a different generation. however, you can have a projector retrofit done. there are a couple members on here that offer the service.

I would like to see some output shots (wall) of the OEM 2013 projectors when someone gets them. Generic Valeo projectors with fluted lenses, I'm thinking performance will be subpar compared to higher quality retrofits. Fitting them with clear lenses and a stronger ballast should make a big difference.

Here's a picture courtesy of a friend over on the FRF of the output. The valeo's I think with a lense upgrade would be alright for any novice hid guy, they will sharpen up that cutoff very well.

Wait so what's the cost jus to order these lights from ford to get them in the truck for fx4 exactly? I saw the 600-650 a side but that's with a lot of stuff added right?

Thanks for the pic. Clearly very dumbed-down performance, super intense hotspots with not the best uniformity or width. Looks almost like sealed beams. Clear lenses will help, but overall these are really not worth the 1800 bucks at all.

Got any more photos from further away (perhaps showing whole front with both lights), and different angles?
