Talking BI-Xenon HID's in projector housing headlights ...any ideas

hey fellas i have aftermarket headlight housings but i want to put back in my HID headlights .. i know it looks like crap because its the reflector housing and not the projector housing so does anyone know any good ones i could find and it would be pretty easy to install in my 01 F-250 7.3
if i could i would want the halo projector led ones but i need a good set up so anyone a pro show me or give me some ideas on what setup i need

It really isn't alot of work. You split em open, attach the projectors, paint if desired, close em up. Bada bing bada boom!
