    New Headlights

    Im looking to get some new headlights and was considering the aftermarket rockauto.com route but just went on their site and noticed they arent the $70 or so they used to be listed for. They show as $131.79 now..Im not sure if those are the same aftermarket version or not? And why the price increase? I just got quoted a price of $160 for aftermarket and $190 for oem from a local body shop. Does anyone know of any other aftermarket lights for sale online? I dont really want to go through ebay.

    I've seen Depo and Keystone. I could not tell you about the price, though.

    Call 1-800-FORD-788 and press "1". Have the last 6 of your VIN handy. You will get the numbers for FREE. You'll pay $$$ for the certificate.

    MM traded in 8/9/13 @ 128909 miles. It was fun for almost 8 years. I met airmercpun on 1/17/14. He was the new owner of my former ride. -Now gone.

    Update: back in the game with a late build 03 GMGS with some MM add ons like Escape audiophile radio w/Sirius sat radio, rear sway bar, catback exhaust, and header panel.

    See my garage file for part numbers and whatnot.

    IMHO, this site- the members that I chat with- and the ones that I now Hang with- are like my 2nd family. There is such an ongoing welcome feeling here that even members who don't or no longer own the MM can feel.

    Make sure you get Marauder-specific headlights. They are blacked out.

    Are these OEM? That's a pretty good price on them if so.

    re

    be careful as the factory lights were changed up from ford after 04 the originals had the rear seal cover for the headlights with a o ring and plastic twist on cap the news ones don't have that provision on them and require the new style cover that is rubber only.

    sold separately from ford.

    The ones I have are pretty mint I will send ya picks if ya need to see them, the only reason I bought new ones is I know that ford will discontinue these soon and I didn't want to miss out on them, I had them since last Oct but only now am I going to but them on, I also have the marker lights as well.mileage on them is 75k or about 47,000 miles.

    I had to order the rubber caps seperately. Only $6 each.

    They are still listed, but they can't sell them anymore. Something about a copyright problem. I ordered them three times on ebay and each time the vendor took my money, sat on it for a week and then canceled the order.
