Custom Made headlights

Hey guys. Been looking extensively on the web and can’t find anything worth buying. Looking for someone or recommendations for someone to build a custom headlight assembly either off the factory ones I have or other options. Not looking for much. DRL LED and maybe switchback. All I have found so far are either way way over priced or so cheap they melt first time you turn them on. Can’t find anything in the fair priced well built category. Anyone have suggestions?

I just got done modding my headlights. What I did was bought clear headlight housings. I still have halogen highs/lows I did not change those yet. But I did convert all of the lights in the lower housings to LEDs. I also did the “DRL delete/dual turn signal mod” and changed those 4 bulbs to switch backs. The side markers are just amber all the time/flash when turning.

So basically both the DRL and turn signal bulb are always on white until I use turn signal or hazards in which case they flash amber only.

If you want to go this route I can help with all the info I used.
