u could do one of those (i think ugly) headlight conversion things where u put the headlights on top of the popups so u dont even have to actually pop them up... idk what its called all ik is i think it looks stupid lol.

There really is no "cheap" way other then replacing it w/ OEM parts. Otherwise you have to do a full front end conversion, which obviously isn't cheap.

not true. they sell the dual lights that you bolt in place of your factory flip up lids. they have dual projectors. check ebay. they are kinda ugly but they work. my buddy has some because he can not stand flip lights.

i agree you can get these.

or like i said i have pretty much complete headlight assemblies if you need them.

there are some other companies that have made other headlights that look better imo then those ebay ones. but they are few and far between.

East bear is one of them.

Supermade is another, both will run you about $500+
