I hope you mean that you want to replace the bulbs in your existing housings.
I have replaced the last three MH's bulbs thru Super bright LEDS on line. You will need to remove bulb and get number of bulb and that you can call Super bright or look it up on their website. I have had very good service from them on a number of cars and trucks in addition to the MH.

As gmc70 said pull a bulb and get the number. Remember when installing new bulbs leds must be clocked in the right direction.

I've replaced the entire headlight assembly because of fogged lenses.

They are the same as 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee headlights.

The LED bulb supplier have have a cross listing for those.

Basic newbie question: Is the bulb info the info in white on the rubber bulb holder, or do I need to take that assembly apart and then there will be numbers on the lightbulb? I don't know if trying to take the bulb out of the rubber holder will tear things up. Thanks.

It is on the bulb base most of the time.

FYI, most headlight reflectors are not designed for the LED light bulbs and will not project a good light pattern. It's easy to tell oncoming vehicles that have switched to LED at night, the light pattern will be scattered, improperly aimed, and blinding to oncoming drivers.
I had to drive our MH at night last week, some oncoming vehicles blinded me even though I was wearing nighttime driving glasses. The only thing I could do was focus on the outside white line near the MH and slow down considerably.

Does that mean that I shouldn't use LEDS for the non-high-beam lights? the non-high beam housing doesn't project the light forward but the bulb is shielded behind a piece of plastic and ONLY puts out what the housing reflects.
