Should be an easy swap! the wiring changed in the 02's and up. but people have been successful

I should not have to because I have an 04 model the 02 to 04's are the most compatible. Seeing how there was a wiring change.

Cleaned up my Laredo headlights. 4 hours of painting, wet sanding and polishing. I think they look pretty good. Better pics tomorrow. Only now my turn signals don't work. I installed new amber bulbs. Anybody have any ideas? My hazards work.

I did the sand and paint on mine. I removed them and did the following.
1) Wash thoroughly.
2) Wet sand with 400gr paper on a 3m sanding block until smooth.
3) Wet sand with 1000gr (couldn't find my 800gr) until smooth
4) Wet sand with 1500gr until smooth
5) Dry assembly in front of Pellet stove (dry however you wish)
6) wipe lens with PrepSol (mild thinner) or alcohol, let dry
7) Spray moderate coat of rustoleum clearcoat ($5 at AZ, wallyworld etc) or equivalent, let flash--10 minutes or so.
8) Spray 2nd coat of clear a little heavier.
9) let dry for an hour in front of pellet stove (warm location is best)
10) Reinstall and enjoy

Sorry, no pics but there are plenty here there and everywhere.

Installed my 3" IRO lift the other day. Bilsteins really do ride like a dream! I evicted my DW after double checking everything.
