The hight beam pods look different.

99-00 is round
01-02 is more of a square or rectangle shape

let's also say that it SEEMS like the 01/02 lights are brighter... knibbs and myself just swapped out my 99's for 01's and using the same silverstar bulbs I had in the 99's they seem MUCH brighter in the 01's.

The chrome in the 01-02's probably help some as well.

What's the matter you don't like boobs? ;)

Yes head and taillight conversions are becoming common but can become expensive to do. It may not seem like it but there is a lot of modification to be done (i.e. filling gaps, drilling new mounting holes, making the new light fit)
