Justin: If you're looking for an affordable way to add that aggressive look to your 2011 through 2016 F-250, then you'll wanna consider adding the Smoked Factory Style Headlights that we're featuring here today. Now, these headlights will be sold in pairs, of course, and will feature that dark-smoked polycarbonate lens, along with the factory-styled chrome ABS plastic housing, all for right around that mid-to-high $200 price point.So, me personally, I think these lights are gonna be the perfect choice for Super Duty owners out there looking to complete that smoked-out or blacked-out look with your truck, but would prefer to stick with a factory-styled light as opposed to something with a bunch of flashing halos, projectors, or LEDs all over the place. Now, that is not a dig on those more modern-looking options, but some truck owners out there, such as myself, prefer the less is more approach to certain modifications, lighting being one of them. Now, truth be told, guys, that smoked look is one of those things that just never seems to go out of style and looks good on just about any truck out there.Moving into construction, and you're gonna find that these lights are gonna be very similar to the factory lights in regards to things like the chromed ABS plastic base or housing, which still utilizes that reflector-style light. Now, these factory-style lights do also hang onto things like the amber reflectors here on the sides, and more importantly, in this case, are topped off with that smoked impact-resistant polycarbonate lens. Now, a quick word on the lens here, gang, something that I thought was worth pointing out. These lenses aren't nearly as dark as other smoked lighting I've seen here on the site, which to me is a good thing. Why? Well, still dark enough to deliver that aggressive look that a lot of you guys are probably after, but at the same time, it's not too dark to the point where it's going to impair your light output at night.Now, finally, guys, these lights do not include any new bulbs, so you're just either gonna have to reuse your factory stuff or use this as an opportunity to possibly upgrade to something maybe a little bit brighter. Now, finally, guys, these lights are fully adjustable, meaning you can get them installed, get them on a wall, of course, line up your cutoff line, make sure they're adjusted properly so, A, you're not blinding oncoming traffic, and B, you're getting the best visibility possible.Price point, again, I feel is gonna be pretty appealing here, guys, because you're looking at the mid to high $200 level, which certainly makes these one of the more affordable smoked options that stick more to an OE recipe available here on the site for your Super Duty.Switching gears, let's move into the install. The site's gonna call this one a pretty solid two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and I would say at least an hour to get everything in place from start to finish. But now, let's throw things out to the shop. Let's check out our detailed walkthrough and tool breakdown.Man: For this install, you will need a ratchet, an extension, a 10-millimeter socket, and a long flathead screwdriver.What's up, guys? Today we're going to be installing a set of headlights on our F-250, so let's get started. So our first step in our process is going to be to remove the grille from our truck. So we're going to begin by removing our four 10-millimeter bolts up top here holding the top of our grille in place. And we're going to do that with our 10-millimeter socket and extension on our ratchet. Then we'll set these bolts aside. So next we can go ahead and pull the top of our grille back just a little bit so we can access the clips at the bottom. We're going to take our long flathead screwdriver, go ahead and push in on our retainer clips at the lower half of the grille. And you may need to push all of them in individually, but sometimes they will just kind of pop out like that. And once you have that out, we can go ahead and remove our grille. We'll just go ahead and pull our grille out and set it aside for now.So there's four 10-millimeter bolts holding your headlight in place. One up top here, two in the middle, and then one down at the bottom. This top one here, you only need to loosen as it is a slotted retainer for your headlight. So we'll go ahead and loosen this up again with our 10-millimeter socket on our ratchet just to give us enough room to slide it out. Then we can go ahead and remove our two middle ones. And then you should have a bottom mounting bolt right in here. Ours is no longer with us due to previous modifications and installs, but yours from the factory should have one right about here in the middle of the bottom of your headlight. So go ahead and remove that one as well. Then we can go ahead and just pop our headlight out of its locator tabs here. You can go ahead and pull that out. Then we can go ahead and unplug all of our connectors. Go ahead and press in on the tabs, pop those out. Then once you've got this completed for this side, you can go ahead and repeat this process for your other headlight.So before we go on to the truck with our new assembly, there are a few things we have to swap over from our factory unit. So we're going to come here to the back of our factory headlights and go ahead and remove these sockets and swap them over to our new assembly. So to get these out, we're just going to take them and give them a quarter turn counterclockwise, you'll hear a pop, and unseat them. And we'll just go ahead and do that for all three bulbs here. Now we can set our factory unit aside. We come here to our new housing and we're just going to go right in reverse. Get them installed onto the new ones. It's a little tricky to get them seated. Once you do, just give them a quarter turn clockwise to lock them into place. And now we're ready to move on to the truck.Now we're gonna plug our connectors back into our sockets, just as they came out, gray to gray, brown to brown, and black to black. Make sure they're nice and seated. You should hear a little click for confirmation. We can go ahead and set this in. Now, remember these do have the locator here up at the top of the headlight. So we'll get that lined up as well as our slot here for our upper bolt, and we'll just give it a good push into place. Then we can go ahead and get our hardware back in. Now we'll get our middle mounting screws back in place first then using our 10-millimeter socket on our ratchet. Once you have your two middle ones in, again, you should have your bottom factory mounting screw here. Go ahead and install that. And then we can go ahead and tighten down our top mounting screw. And once you have this process complete for this headlight, you can go ahead and repeat this for the other side.So now that we have both headlights on, we can go ahead and get our grille back into place. So we'll start by lining up our bottom tabs here. We'll get our top mounting holes lined up. We'll just give it the bottom of our grille a push. You should hear your tabs click back into place. Then we can go ahead and reinstall our mounting screws up top. Then we'll get our mounting screws back into place again using our 10-millimeter socket on our ratchet.All righty, guys, that about wraps up our review and install of our Factory Style Headlights with Chrome Housing and Smoked Lenses for your '11 to '16 F-250 Super Duty.
