Headlights

I was thinking of replacing my stock headlights because they are really dim. I want something brighter. I have been looking on Jeep Parts, Jeep Accessories & Jeep Soft Tops From The Jeep Parts Experts - Quadratec for different options.

What do you think I should do?

I went the cheapo route, and got the Sylvania Silverstar replacement lights. I think they were 20 bucks/light.... I actually noticed a pretty decent difference in light output.

X2^. I went the cheap route with the silverstars too. While they are much better than stock, I should have gone a different route.

I run Delta Quads I hated them with the xenon lamps. I changed the lamps to Silverstars and readjusted them and I like them now

I hear a lot of people like IPF lenses and silverstars too

^^I did the same thing. There is a big difference.

IPF housings and Fatboy bulbs are the way to go though.

so what gauge wires should one use ?

or were you saying that you only upgraded the lights and not the wires and noticed the big difference?

I did lights only. No wiring up grade.

Now the lights that were in it could have been original. All I know is they were crappy and light output was terrible.
