Any idea for replacement lights or bulbs for 2014 unlimited

Anyone have a good site to order bright/clear replacement bulbs for '14 unlimited? Also, does anyone have any idea how to get the bulbs out of the headlights or do I have to remove the entire front of the vehicle?? Thanks for help......

From what I have seen on YouTube, the easiest way to access the headlight bulbs is to remove the grill and pull the entire headlight out.

That's what thought. Just did not want to mess anything up. Have you come across any sites to get replacement bulbs that are bright without having to add any harnesses or any other added items?

Truck lite LED headlights are the ticket, very easy and the results are better than any bulb replacement. About $400-500. Part # 27270CK

I was reading the owners manual for my 2013 JKU tonight and it says to remove the grill to replace the headlights. I have read reviews that the Philips Silverstar lights are brighter than stock but they do not last very long. I just ordered the IPF H4 conversion kit from Quadratec. It replaces the reflectors and bulbs. I'll post a review once I have them installed.

That's correct, and the grille is very easy to remove unless you have a winch.

If you're wanting just a plug and play replacement bulb without spending a fortune try the Philips X-treme Power 80. A big improvement on the stock bulb for the money.

I did this a few years ago and it worked for me in my area. I'm satisfied with the light output. Yes, better than the Silverstars. I haven't had to replace the Phillips +80's that I put in almost 4 yrs. ago.

I installed a IPF H4 conversion kit today and it took about 35 minutes to do. The front grill comes off in about 3 minutes and the lights come out with 4 screws. It is a very install.

I have an 09 and replaced my headlamps with TruckLite LED, it is worth the money. It was about 400. from northridge4x4. If you have stock bumper and no winch , removing the grille is super easy. You just need to "pop-out" the 6 plastic "push-ins" that is holding the grille. You then need to pop out the bulbs on the blinker signals (just screw them out) Once the grille is removed , you would need to remove the 4 on each side T15 torx screws that hold the retainer ring that holds the headlight/bulb. Alot of youtube video's show how this is done.

I think with the price of the LED's going down, its a better investment than swapping the bulbs. IMHO

+ 1 on this also, three years on the Phillips extremes, best bang for the buck in my opinion. If icing wasn't an issue where I reside I would try the leds. My money no object setup in the Bi Zenon rally hid light kit, but at $1400+ I don't drive enough at night to justify it.

Lightbulb

I replaced my headlights with LED bulbs. I got the ones by Lifetime LED when they first came out. There are others now but they were the only ones at the time.

Straight plug and play. No new housing. No wiring. No muss no fuss. No blinding other people. No problems. Literally night and day difference. Pure clean white light. None of that stupid blue light. They put out 2000 lumens with the low beams and 2600 on high.

$150 and I have headlights that look like HID but don't blind people. I've run them for about 3 weeks now and get constant compliments. Absolutely no one flashing their lights at me. I have asked tons of people who were infront of me and passing from the opposite direction if they were obnoxious in any way. All have said they are not blinding or offensive in any way.

If you want more light I'd recommend this. I have several friends who have already ordered theirs after seeing mine. About the same price as an H4 conversion but with more light and a fraction of the price of Speakers or Trucklites.

It is a 2504. I just bought LED replacement fog light bulbs and the 2504 LED bulbs plugged right into the factory harness.
