KC headlights

Anyone have experience with the new KC headlamps? Any brighter than the stock JK lights? I have a 2012 and debating between these or a transfer case skid

I installed these on my 2011. This upgrade is way better then the stock lights. Before I did this upgrade I had to use my fog lights to lite up the road directly in front of my Jeep. Since the upgrade I no longer need to use the fog lights. If you just want to improve your night driving on normal streets, I say this is a good affordable upgrade. It is a easy plug an play upgrade. And the lights are legal. Both the low and high beam light output is improved. I'm happy with this easy upgrade.

Thanks for the insight!

You might want to take a look at the Delta's and even the IPFs which are in the same price range.

The KC's look suspiciously like the stock housings with a 55W bulb.

Money down the drain. Pick up a pair of Trucklites on ebay for $375, rather than dump a third of that money down the tubes. I had IPFs, and they aren't better than stock. They all suck.

I have not seen the KC lights, but I installed the IPF H4 conversion kit today and after a long ride tonight, I found that the IPF lights are a huge improve not over stock. I would definitely install them again.

Will do. Buying them today after I fix my leaking windshield washer fluid. Grrrr... Chrysler is blaming it on low temperatures even though I have two older Saturns with no problems at all. Freaking Chrysler. Good thing about jeeps is you can take them apart and put them back together they way they should have been in the first place... From stock bolts up..... Whew... O.K. Rant over ;-)

Bought these for $45 shipped from a fellow forum member. Installed in 5 min and about another 10 min to aim correctly. Just took my first drive with them tonight. What a world of difference! The low beams definitely throw much more light immediately in front where the fogs used to have to fill in, and the high beams are 10x better! These results are with the 55/60W bulbs that come with the lights. I am interested to see what an upgraded pair of H4 bulbs will do. Definitely a worth while upgrade for someone who doesn't have the cash for the trucklites.
