It's pretty simple.

Buy lights...
Take out old lights...
Put in new lights...

I'm fairly sure you shouldn't have to do any modding at all. Lights should bolt into the same spot and globes all slot in. That's how it worked with mine anyways.

What? these things?

Easiest things to install. 2 screws. but don't dare list them as a mod. Mods are typically an improvement, the general consensus on these is they are detrimental to your vehicles overall credibility.

The LED ones are moe expensive as they are LED, and SHOULD have the correct resistance for your cruise control to still function properly, the other ones are simply reuse your existing globes. But $180 more expensive... only you can weigh them both up and justify the expense.

might be because your posting an exterior question in the 6 cyl forum, the 6 cyl forum is for 6 cyl engine related topics, just because its a 6 cyl it dont mean you ask all your questions in it..

moved to exterior modification forum..

Phil, Thats what I think the extra dollars are all about, as I mentioned LED's need to be done properly with the required resistance for the cruise system to work.

Thanks for the clarification.
