To remove the headlights, first of all, pop the hood and disconnect the vehicle's negative battery cable using a 10mm wrench or socket.

Remove the insulator thing that runs across the top of the radiator, it uses six of the plastic push pin things. You'll find one in each fender, two near the front (grill) area, and two large ones at the back of radiator pen the truck's hood.

Remove the grill by taking out the four 10mm bolts holding it in place and then pulling the grill straight out to release the two tabs on the lower corners. **WARNING: Watch your bumper cover to keep from scratching it!**

Removing the headlights is a two part process. Start by taking out the two 10mm bolts on the inside edge of the lights, one mounts vertically and one mounts horizontally.

Next, access the back of the headlight through the access door inside the inner fender wells. Open the access door and reach inside. There is a tab that slides vertically. To release the headlight, push the tab up.

Pull the headlight straight out to remove it. Be careful as there are two connections on the back of the headlight. Disconnect the two connections on the back of the headlight to completely remove it from the truck.

Connections from the truck - headlight plug on left, park / turn on the left:

Test the lights at this point. Low beam, high beam, parking lights and turn signals. Then, reinstall the grill, and the radiator cover - and the job is complete:
