KC HiLite's H4 JK headlight swap compatible with Daylight Running Lamps?
We have mandatory DRL's here where I live, wondering if anyone did the headlight assembly H4 upgrade who has DRL's.
I've heard it's a problem with the LED lights and DRL's, but haven't seen anything about the halogen. Any info is appreciated. If it's a big problem, I'll just put some auxiliary lights and leave them alone...
How much of an improvement in the light output? I'm sure the glass lenses will be more durable than the factory plastic as well.
Actually plastic lenses are preferred over glass normally. Glass lenses tend to distort light output. When people do HID retrofits they prefer to use plastic lenses cause the glass can blur your lights cut-off line. Most people will convert from glass to plastic when retrofitting.

There is a big difference in lighting. When I put new bumper on I changed headlights and added IPF 968's to bumper, both headlights and 968's have X-Pel clear film on them and factory fogs have yellow film. I did this because of stone damage, I am on my 5th windshield and it has 2 patches in it so I thought protecting new lights was a good idea. When wife asked if I had my stock headlights on the 401 one night and I told her yes it was not to hard to sell her on a upgrade. The IPF's light up ground close in front so much that factory fogs don't make much difference. I travel up to Bancroft area to cottage and deer are a problem but with new lights I can see much better.
I have KC 55w fogs on the way, not sure if I'll swap headlight assemblies right now as I think I'll have plenty of light if I run the KC's. I was leaning towards the KC H4 headlight swap as it's cheaper, just wondering if it works with DRL's.
I had a set KC's on factory bumper for a about the first year & 1/2, but somebody liked them a lot more than me I guess because one morning they had left for a new home. With a H13 to H4 adapter the DRL's should work.
