Default Looking to replace entire headlight assembly

Newb on the forum!

After having VHT night shade on my 09 Hemi for quite some time now, I've decided to make my truck look "classier" (no offense to the budget tuner) by just replacing the entire assembly with halo projector's w/ Xenon bulbs, preferably with the black backing.

My current headlights have the quad-lamps and I have run into a bit of trouble trying to distinguish which manufacturer's lights will work in my truck since most appear to only be for the dual lamp set-up. So far I have check out RECON and K-2.

Who has done this already? Any help would be great.

I've checked from A to Z on the internet and everyone tells me the halo replacement sets for the quads are not available yet. I'll watch this thread with interest to see if anyone comes up with some. I'm getting impatient to find something and am close to just going with the duals and wiring the high side to a set of drivers behind the grill. I'm running HID's and don't really need the factory high beams anyway.

Oh, and you mentioned the "R" place. You know what RECON stands for don't you? Ripping Every Customer Off Nightly. Before you send them any money check HERE. Between them and PayPal, well, just watch your money.

Well, aside from Dennis' bad experience with Recon, I've quite enjoyed my experinces with Recon, as I have their entire back end lighting. They are overpriced compared to a lot of other vendors, so beware, but I've been pleased wth their quality. Now, there have been one or two people that have gotten ahold of some HALO projectors for the '09+ and they say they'll work with the quad bulb setup as it's still one factory plugin. As far as I know they got them from spyder industries, OR you can try eBay and see what they have to offer.

How do you like the anzo's? Did your truck have the quad headlights before you changed them?

I was considering the Anzo's. I don't have quads right now. Can these things support BI-Xenon? Do they have a shield thing that can move up and down for high beem/low beem?
Or do I have to go the route of modifying my existing housing and getting something like the morimoto bi xenon projectors.
