Re: Project Altitude - Build thread

UPDATE!! Altitude headlights installed!

The Altitude headlights make a tremendous difference in the appearance of the car when paired with the black grill. Just upgrading the grill wasn't enough since it clashed with the OEM chrome headlight housings. The overall appearance is now much improved.

Here are the Altitude headlights side-by-side with OEM. Everything came ready to go - a true plug & play mod. It even included new bulbs! Thanks to justforjeeps.com.



Everything comes off the front of the truck - again. After the first go-round, it was amazingly simple to remove all the components. If you have a 10mm socket wrench, you can do this.



Empty eye socket. Pretty easy to remove the headlights - just three bolts hold it in place. Disconnecting the bulbs was a cinch, as well, although my fingers are going to be sore tomorrow.



Installed!





Apologies for the crappy Android phone pictures. I'm going to wait until I go somewhere with better lighting before posting the final product.

No chance. The headlight is held in place by three 10mm bolts - one on top and two in the front. Only way to access the two front bolts is to remove the bumper. But as I've mentioned eariler in the thread, it's really not that difficult.

It looks good now, but that thing will be awesome once the black wheels are on it!
