Have you changed your stock headlights?

Just got a 13' Sahara a month ago and was looking for info on changing the headlights...Did you R&R yours and if you did what did you use?
Thanks

I kept mine stock. I live in the city and high power headlights are not needed. I have some KC lights for off road and can't see sending big bucks for a light I already have just to make it brighter. I'm happy with the stock headlights along with the stock fog lights.

Give him a call. Replaced my stock with Cibies. I can see great and don't blind oncoming traffic.

I went with Trucklites. Best thing I have done. I won't have gotten so many Rigid lights had I got the TL's first.

I got Delta Quad headlamps and also bought the Delta 55w fogs. Love the fogs; not so much on the headlights. They don't seem anywhere near as bright as they advertise. They do have DRLs built-in so that's a plus (if you go for that sort of thing). I can't really recommend the headlights but the fogs are awesome!

I went with Daniel Stern. It's the only change I've made on my Jeep and it was well worth it!!

I went with the KC Hilites H4 upgrade kit. Great upgrade for the price.

Quadratec offers free shipping to wrangler forum members. Just have to call.

Ran Delta tech 4's and didn't like the color. Scored a set of Trucklite Phase 7's and love em. The only issue is they may be TOO bright in a heavy snowstorm.

Ordered the Cibies from Daniel Stern, had a big storm a couple of weeks ago, couldn't see anything with stock lights. Can't wait to see how they work.
