    You can fit newer light innards to military bezels. I’ve done the same. Military ones hard to get hold of these days so make sure they’re complete.

    Google military headlights. There’s an outer & inner bezzle. The outer bezzle is useless without the inner parts. 45322B13-9723-4E58-A742-F096D20702E8.jpeg

    You can use a standard glass sealed light unit but military lights also have special rubber ‘boots’ that the wires run through. If you’re upgrading you’ll need these as well.
