Dingy headlights suck!
How many Ford Lightning trucks have you seen driving around with dingy, yellow sometimes cracked headlights? Unless your Ford Lightning has been sheltered its whole life in a dark, air tight container you have almost certainly experienced the dreaded yellow headlights. It's amazing how something as insignificant as a dull headlight can ruin your Ford Lightning overall appeal. And considering how easy and inexpensive it is to install a new set of headlights, side markers and park lamps it's funny how many people overlook this seemingly small detail.
Not only does it look shabby running around town with faded and dingy headlights but it's also a safety hazard. You would be amazed how big of a difference a new head light kit will make in the night time visibility department! Imagine you are cruising down a country road late a night with a set of worn out headlights when a deer jumps out in front on you, wouldn't you rather be equipped with a brand new shiny set of headlights and sidemarkers from Latemodel Restoration Supply?
1 Year Warranty On All Lights
Although the manufacturer does not always warranty their products, we do! If you consider buying lights from Latemodel Restoration Supply you can be assured that we will stand behind them! We only use the best possible manufacturers when selecting our products. We have heard of other companies telling their customers to bake their lights in an oven or run silicone around the seams to fix or prevent leak issues. Not here! If for some reason there is a defective light assembly we will simply replace it, no questions asked, for 1 year from the date of purchase. Not only do we like to offer our customers the best value, we back it up with the best service!
Our SVT Lightning headlights are available in factory original (99-00 style and 01-04 style), Clear Diamond and Projector. Headlight installation on the 99-04 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning is extremely easy and only requires 8mm socket and ratchet (an extension is needed for non-deep style sockets). NOTE: This process is the same for all 1997-2004 Ford F-150s.
We chose to use the 2001-04 Ford SVT Lightning Headlight Kit(Part# FTP-13008BK). Kit includes both driver and passenger headlights and side markers and includes housings, OE style clear lenses, new bulbs, and adjusting studs.They are OE Style replacements with Clear Lenses, amber reflector sidemarkers that are DOT compliant. This kit is a popular upgrade for older 1999-00 style Lightning headlights! This headlight kit comes with a 1 YEAR NO HASSLE WARRANTY.
JONATHAN MCDONALD: '99 TO 2004 Lightnings had two different styles of headlights-- the '99 and 2000 style, and then the '01 to '04 style, which is more of an ultra-clear design. Now it's a very common swap for '99 and 2000 guys to upgrade to the '01 to '04-style headlight set up, which is exactly what we're going to do on this white 2000 Lightning we've got behind us here. Now these new headlights, regardless of which direction you go, are covered by our no-hassle warranty. The headlights themselves include new bulbs and retainers, but you will have to transfer your existing bulb sockets and bulbs from your existing side markers to the new ones.
Now removing the headlights and side markers from your Lightning is extremely easy. All you want to do is grab hold of the two retaining clips that hold on the headlight, pull those up, then slide the headlight out of its whole and unplug the headlight bulb. Once you have the headlights set out of the way, grab you a 7-millimeter nut driver, or ratchet and socket, and remove the retaining screw for the side marker. With that out of the way, you can go ahead and pull the side marker forward, unplug the socket, and then remove the bulb-and-socket assembly from the old side marker.
Go ahead and grab your new light kit. On the side marker, you're going to want to go ahead and remove the protective backing, install your bulb socket, plug it back in, clip the side marker into place, and reinstall the retaining screw. With that done, grab your new headlight. Remember, it already comes with a new bulb, so you can just plug it in, line up the adjusters with their associated tabs, slide the headlight into place, and re-engage the two retaining clips there.
Now for just a little bit of time and not a whole lot of money, we greatly improved the appearance of this 2000 Lightning. You can do the same to yours. Now don't forget the fog lights. Check out our fog light replacement video so you can swap out your fog lights to match your new headlights. For more Lightning lighting options, check out latemodelrestoration.com.

I was constantly polishing the ever-fading headlights on my 2001 Lightning. After some internet searching and reading reviews I decided to take the plunge and buy these headlights and corner lights. What a difference it made on the improvements of the overall look of the truck, not to mention the brighter illumination that came with the new lenses. Very reasonably prices as well. Highly recommended for anyone dealing with tired, old headlights. They also came with new bulbs in the headlights, which saved me a trip to the parts store to buy new bulbs.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
