Headlight Removal with Shrock Bumper

Hey guys,

my headlights are looking a bit aged and was looking to get a fresh new pair. This may seem like a dumb question but, I have the shrockworks front bumper and is there any way to remove the headlight housings without removing the whole front bumper. I know there are tabs under the lights that need to be reached.

thanks!

I just did this yesterday with my HC off-road bumper, which I imagine is much the same. Only 1-2 bolts toward the bottom were tough to get to, but it was doable. Just went in from the sides of the bumper to get to them.

It will be a pain, but doable. I was able to swap out mine with some maneuvering around the bullbar. Removing the grill will help. Just be patient and work the angles. The bottom outside bolt is tough to get to. It takes a lot of short turns to get it out and back in. Wish I had more specifics than that for you.

Is there a thread somewhere to recommend good replacement headlights? Mine are scuffed and foggy and I'd like a better set, but there are dozens of 'em out there.

Amazon has sets of stock replacement units.
