New headlight assembly bracket?

Need new bracket/assemblies for my headlights. Needs to include all the hardware including the adjustment screws.

Any recommendation on a good replacement part? Is this replacement a big project to undertake?

Here are a couple that I found from searching
Amazon
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H9CMGLD...v_ov_lig_dp_it

XtremeTerrain
https://www.extremeterrain.com/omix-...j-1240203.html

My current brackets are fine, but my adjustment screws are completely stripped and rusted. Tried using liq wrench and vice grips, but they won't budge.


Hopefully someone here has replaced theirs and can steer me in the right direction.

Thanks.

On the one for Amazon, it's only the left hand bucket. There's a link just below the description where you can get both of them. $88 for the pair is an outstanding price, per my research. I could only find them for about $66 or so, a piece.

Just from what you've shown, I'd jump on the Amazon units.

I hear ya. Sometimes on Amazon though you get poor quality. Want to use those as my last resort. Hoping someone here actually purchased/installed a set and can give me a recommendation.


Also, is this a pretty taxing installation?

Summit Racing has them too. This is for the Driver's side, but the Passenger side is down on the right.

https://www.summitracing.com/parts/u...ions/year/2002

Installation is easy:
Remove the trim ring.
Remove the mounting ring.
Unplug and remove the light.
Under the hood, you will see three small studs sticking out into the engine compartment. Unscrew the nuts holding them and remove the bucket.
