OEM style replacement headlamps

Looking to replace my headlamps due to cracks. Not looking for anything fancy, just straight replacement for the WJ SE. Any recommendations? Bought a pair off Amazon and they're horrible.

Re: OEM style replacement headlamps

Body shops can get aftermarket headlamps new or you could try a salvage yard for OEM used parts.

I just want a pair that can plug N play. I ordered these:

And the lights just flop around in the housing. There's nothing keeping them stable.

Then I would go with a quality aftermarket from a body shop. You can install it yourself.

There must be some part missing with the new units you bought. Did you compare the new units with the old ones to see the difference? You canīt use the part from the old unit to make it work?
Are the plastic rings in place where the light bulbs go into? They are fixed with 3 screws.
