Retrofitting a Rigid Industries Dually into the Headlights?

Has anyone personally done this and could offer some insight? Ive been wanting to do this for a while and it seems simple enough where its not worth paying someone 1800 for a custom set of headlights when I can just do it myself.

I just need to know what all needs to be taken out of if i need any other hardware to complete the install like fiberglass etc.

Or if anyone knows of a step by step thread already that would be great!

Any help is much appreciated thanks

I wouldn't take any of the stock components out. Rigid's are brighter than OEM headlights so you'll have issues using them as on road headlights. If you wired the Rigid light to your high beams, that's a different story. I've seen the Dually mounted in our mirrors and that looked pretty cool.
