If you ever find the need to adjust the headlights on your truck, you will need to do so carefully. To adjust the headlights.

  1. Park your vehicle on a level surface 25 feet away from a wall.

  2. Create an 8 foot reference line.

  3. Turn on the low beam headlights and cover one of them.

  4. If the edge of the light doesn’t meet the reference line vertically, turn the vertical adjusters with a #2 Phillips screwdriver until they meet.

  5. Repeat for the other headlamp.
