You may want to search some of the "headlight upgrade" posts. Plenty of info there.

The challenge with LED headlamps is the diodes are not at the same place the original filaments are. That makes for a poor beam blinding traffic in front of you.

I found one set that mimics a 9004 close enough that I haven't changed it out in my Dakota yet, but that set is no longer sold.

That is frequently a problem (not mentioned by vendors, of course). Another issue is heat dissipation. An incandescent throws heat out with the beam as infrared, an LED (which is easily damaged by overheating) sheds heat through the base. True LED full headlamps are designed to carry a lot of heat out the back, lamp units designed for bulbs are not.
