So you put some off an 05 in your 08? I was told by two sources this would not work. I ask because I am looking at a set from eBay with the HID kit. THe seller said no, and a friend at a dealer said no. He pulled them each from part dept and said wouldn't work. I am hoping he was wrong, and that you are the reason my wiffe hates ebay. LOL

The lights will work, no modifications necessary. The only difference in the lights is the amber part at the top.

By the way. The 08 is about a half to 3/4 inch wider at the top than the older ones. This is a no go. Craop

You guys are confusing me - the last two posts contridict each other... Perhaps there is a difference between the 08's and the 08.5's???

So you put 2005 aftermarket headlight housings in a 2008 with no fitment or connection problems? We measured my headlight housing roughly against an 04 at the meet, and mine was wider at the top by a little more than half an inch. Don't get me wrong, I am not bashing you rather asking for clarification. I would love to get a pair I found on ebay, but everything I am being told and have seen says it won't work. Thanks for your patience with myself and others. We are all after all working on a common goal here.:cheers:

they only thing that is different between the 04' - 08' is the grille and the amber at the top of the headlight the 08' headlights should fit just fine but i dont think that i would do that i deff.. think that the clear at the top looks much cleaner that the amber i think it is just to much amber with the top and the sides 2 but if that is what you like to each his own its yout titan and only yours so i think they will fit fine do it just send pics when your done
