Replacing headlamp bulbs

Decided I am going to start here and upgrade the stock bulbs. Quadratech sells Silverstar Halogen Headlamps and PIAA H13 White Plus bulbs. The PIAA ones are twice as expensive, are they worth it?

And does anyone know of an online tutorial or video on how to swap them out?

2014 JKUR.

Never mind, I did it today and put a set of Silverstar Ultras in. Super easy. Maybe a small incremental increase in brightness, but most definitely not the 50% increase they claim.

Thanks, ElToro, your post was right on time. I was thinking of puling the trigger on the silver stars. But I would be expecting more than just a small increase for as weak as the stock unit is.
Well, back to the Delta sealed beam headlight.

I have the Deltas and don't care for them. I might consider getting rid of them if interested

I just installed the Phillips X-treme H13 bulbs.
Definite improvement over the stock bulbs. They are close to a 50% improvement.
Cost was $30 from Amazon.

Question

Couple questions....

What will give the biggest bang for the buck from stock H13 in a 2013 JK ?

1) Upgrade to 55/60 watt H4 bulbs (H13 -- H4 adapter required) ?

2) Upgraded to higher wattage H4 bulbs and upgraded wiring harness ?

3) Upgrade headlight housings ?
