Default 89-92 Sealed Beam Headlight

Is anyone here running the 5x7 sealed beam style headlights on an 89-92 style front end? If so is it hard to accomplish, easy, or just plain impossible? Thanks.

Look up the European first gen Explorer. They had sealed beams. You could probably get the bezels shipped here.

It wouldn't be too hard to make some bezels using some North American ones and some fiberglass

I’ve replaced the headlights in my truck a few times and am familiar with how they mount. What’s the difference with this style? I’m fed up not being able to see and would like to install some of the 5x7 cree style led squares.

Somebody mentioned repinning the plug for a 9007 bulb. That will make it a little brighter.
