I've asked something similar before but I wasn't able to find what I
needed with the answers I received.
I need to find some right-hand-drive spec headlights for my 2001 Dakota.
I called the Chrysler here and was told that since Dodge is not
produced in this configuration, such an animal doesn't exist. So I'm
left with the following questions for the experts here:
1. Is he right?
2. If he is right, is there a headlight for some other make of vehicle
that I'd be able to install on the Dodge? Toyota, or other Chrysler
non-truck models, or, well anyone?
3. What else can I do to find a headlight with the right spec, or at
least determine that what I'm searching for doesn't exist?

He was very quick to answer my question. Essentially, I'm screwed.
Apparently Dodge makes what we call in my business "proprietary"
headlights for the Dakota, with no lefthand driving option. I could try
to put in a "universal" headlamp set, but that's probably beyond my
nonexistent abilities as a mechanic.
Thanks for the help, anyway

Well, of course, but "there" is "here" for me and they just point the
lights and sometimes stick tape over bits of them. It hasn't been
working well (I can hardly see ahead with lows), which is why I'm
looking to replace the lights.
