    Wonder how hard it would be to make it work? How much fabrication, if any would be needed? I'm guessing it's not as simple as plug in and bolt up. Maybe I'm wrong. Feel free to prove me so.

    Those bulbs have fans on the back side and some types kick forward and back for the high and low beams. I have seen several different types for sale much cheaper than those. Almost any 7" headlight will fit our early vans but the buckets aren't very deep. Those bulbs shown might sit too deep.
    I bought a pair of used 2017 Jeep lights for my Van,($40) the plug is different but I found adapters on Amazon cheap and they fit well.

    Do you have to add/change any thing electrical to make the LED headlights work, Russell? I rewired my van a couple years ago and my LED taillights run perfect, but I didnít know if these headlights would need resistors or anything.
