Obliterated headlight, replacement suggestions?

While learning some skills for off roading this weekend, I hit a tree and obliterated my headlight. It cracked the cowling and very badly bent the headlight subframe and cowling bracket.

Ebay is supplying a replacement cowling bracket but I thought I'd try to upgrade my headlight to something usable- it's an '01. I found a few universal sealed beam replacement style headlights that maybe I can attach to the headlight subframe.

Has anyone already done this and had good success or have a specific product suggestion for a useful headlight?

And by useful headlight, I mean the '01 headlight was pretty shabby. On the road, whoever was behind me provided more light than my own headlight so long as they were only a second or two behind me.
