    Lights got out of line, so I went to adjust? All 4 are broken (Too much rough riding).
    I have the stock rectangle outside lights, then I installed 2 5in round inside(already had the mount hole, I robbed from amc car). I can find buckets(mine are fine), but the mount with adjusters is toast. Their not rusted through, the light adjuster is broken, and doesn't look to be replaceable ?
    Or is their a mod to repair the adjusters?

    Thanks, I found their site.
    And the round ones are like the older j10 with round lights.

    Repair successfully,! Napa off rack universal kit, square peg in round(had to drill),hole kinda kit.
    Had to shim bracket off rad support to get them right. Drove last night on farm, never have they benn so good. All 4 burn low, and high.
    Now let's talk bout that foot dimmer switch, I've replaced mine 3 times in 5 years? Can't find a decent quality one anymore? The oem lasted 30 years but now?????
