Looks good, do you get a lot of snow there? I was pushing snow with my 03' at stock height. :(

Thx for the comments, We do get a lot of snow in the winters, but it's not like out east where it piles up or u get 48" at a time! I haven't pushed any snow yet at the lowered height.
Brakes are Baer Alumasport big brake kit. Look great, but seem small now in the 26's.

As for the head lights, there are plenty of how to's on the site.
But, Remove, use a professional heat gun and slowly heat and pry, move, heat and pry, continue.
Be VERY patient, don't melt the rubber surround, and don't burn your fingers.
Remove amber, and reseal using 'High temp' engine silicon. allow to cure, put a little weight on them, and done!

i used a large metal putty knife to do the prying so it didnt stretch the plastic so much.

Looks sweet! I want to clear my headlights bad but am afraid I will screw them up, then have to fork out the money to get new lights. I have heard of people putting them in the oven to melt the glue, would you recommend doing that?

Thanks!

Don't do the oven thing, too hard to time, not enough control and too easy to melt/damage other parts.

Looks good man. I am from Edmonton, I did this headlight mod a few months ago. I put the lights in the oven, and it melted a bit.

I tried two different types of sealant one worked good, and the other leaks...

Looks really great, Is it lowered? If it is what's the drop? I just bought a 06 ext and was thinking about putting either 24's or 26's and lowering it myself.
