Default Swapping out OEM Headlights for OEM Headlights

First, I did try a search LOL!


I'm thinking of swapping out my OEM headlights...and taillights...for the blackened Raptor versions. Just wondering if this is just a simple bolt on and plug and play type deal? I thought it would be then I see the dealership charging about $450 for install......


Any help is appreciated!

Much appreciated. I could not figure out a reason it wouldn't be but when I saw the installation charge I figured I must be missing something. Guess not!

I would hope the $450 includes the cost of the lights.
If not, you need a new dealer.

Well, to be fair, I got the quote from the online Ford accessories website. I haven't talked to my dealer. I'm probably stopping in tomorrow, so I'll ask. Chances are it'll still be ridiculous but I'd like to know, for sure.

After the healight swap, do the new lights need to be aligned?

Most likely. Google it and you'll see a video on the whole thing. Very, very easy to do. Don't get raped by the dealer
