Headlights and Driving Lights 2004 Beaver Monterey

My new to me 2004 Beaver Monterey has mildly fogged headlight lenses, and one cracked driving light. This is my first RV -acquired two days ago- so I am learning about everything. Are there replacement driving lights that I can buy? If so are LEDs a good idea? For the headlights, should I try one of the headlight renewal kits? New upgraded bulbs? Are LEDs a possibility? I read that the headlights and taillights on this coach are the same as on a lincoln navigator. My goal is to have clear headlights and good visibility driving at night. What to do?

The headlights on my '05 Beaver Patriot are 98-02 Lincoln Navigator. There are plenty of aftermarket headlight assemblies available.

The concern is that some of these aftermarket ones are junk. I just bought a set, but I made sure to get the "Ford" OEM headlamp assemblies (you can tell because the name "Ford" or the "Aftermarket" manufacturer's name will be on the headlight lens).

Regarding LED lamps, it can be done but it has been said that some of these aftermarket LEDs can't be aimed properly and scatter the light badly so the end result is worse than stock bulbs. So if you decide to get some, go with a reputable brand-name supplier.

There is also an upgrade to improve the voltage to the headlights. I have done this to my coach and it does help. If new to the Beaver take a look at the Beaver Ambassador Club.
