Headlight adjustment

my headlights have been improperly adjusted or off due to the lift, but my lights on low dont even hit the ground, like i will be on flat road and the light seem like they're off b/c they dont hit the ground, how can i point them down a little more?

You need to go buy a Haynes/Chiltons manual.

there are 2 sets of adjustment screws behind the bezel. Just be sure your taking off the bezel and not adjusting the headlights first.

its really not hard. its like I think 3 phillips screw heads to take the bezels (headlight rings) off the front and the adjustment screws are right there. go take a look at it. the more you screw it down the more it will point in that direction. so screw the bottom one down and adjust accordingly

pretty damn close. but don't let mommy and daddy see you putting those stickers on now, they might send you to your room and take your jeep keys away

I know this is an old thread but when I recently replaced my headlights the beams were aimed completely different than before - pointing way up and into oncoming traffic. I have a 2004 Wrangler X (TJ). I've seen mention of two adjusting screws with phillips head screws. Mine have three adjusting screws with the star type heads (no. 20 I think). I figured out the up-down, left-right, but I'm not quite sure what that third screw does... Anyone know? Also, the driver side light was pointing up so far that I had to adjust it way way down and ended up popping the screw through the bucket, breaking the plastic. Rigged it temporarily to hold together, but need a new bucket now. Have not yet been able to get the two lights aimed about even... strange. I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any...

make sure your lights are seated in the buckets properly. they could be off very little in the bucket but cause headaches getting it adjusted. Aftermarket lights are notorious for ill fitting.

My 2003 has torx t15 heads. The two that you can see in the indents in the bezel are the adjusters, the third is not supposed to be messed with.

Unfortunately mine are seized, will wait until summer to see if I can loosen them up somehow without breaking the plastic or the bolt heads.
