4509 is the spread beam style spot light.( the ones I have above)

4700 has two filaments in one housing. The 4509 filament and also a flood filament. Both 100w, and can be controlled independently from one another.

My guess would be 3 times as bright.

I want more now so I think my next set will be a front mounted set of the 4700's with 2 switchs for the different filaments. Another $50 and less work to wire than the 2 I just did.

I still need to find a good place to mount a couple in the rear too. I have a magnet mount 300,000 CP 12v plug in light thatI can use anywhere with a 25ft cord on it but....

BTW, I can hear the draw on the alternator with just these 2.

Yes most cop cars run the 4509's i run the normal unity 7682 housings that use 100watt H3 bulbs. The funny thing is my lights are brighter then my friends police interceptor spot light.

i'll see if i can find a p/n today

but in the mean time, i think any of these will work. you'll just replace the bulb that comes in it with the 4509 that you buy. par36 is the size of the bulb, so you just need a housing that will hold it. when i bought mine they were all sitting on a shelf in the store, didnt even have to ask the guy at the counter to look in the back. mine are "trucklite" brand however which i didnt see on the website.


IIRC, this is the specific one i have, but it came from napa

Ok got a question. I have a 97 tj that had factory fog lights. Well they done work anymore, so, my question is could I mount these and use the factory wiring? Or are these to powerful for the stock wiring? Thanks guys!

do the bulbs just peel out of hte housing? i think my generic fog lights are the right type of housing and i can just put new bulbs in them.

i am running on my stock fog light wiring

The par36 housings I am familiar with are rubber housings that do peal off of the bulb so to speak.

So you are using your stock housings and just putting new bulbs in? That may be what I should do.

oh no, i have the par36 housings, not the stock ones. someone took the lights off this one prior to me owning it so i bought some cheapo lights from walmart, and they just happen to have the housings to do this mod. i use the factory wiring though so i cna maintain a stock looking interior

So the factory wires and switch can handle them?

i haven't tried them yet but my wires are pretty healthy looking on the fog lights. the switch is a normal rocker style switch that i hope is the ground side of the wire system but you never know with jeeps

i've got no clue about the wiring on the TJ, never been into one that deep. but yes the bulbs just peel right out, not super easy, but they do. so long as its par36, if you've got the housing, you just needs the bulbs

wow!!! those suckers are bright. i tried them at noon today, because that is when i swapped hte bulbs, and they lit up the tree trunk across the yard. its beautiful blue skies here.

my housings came in the 35w afterburner kit at walmart and htey are indeed the par36 housings. so this kit came with wiring and everything for something like 20 bucks and then they did have the bulbs at napa. i told the lady i was looking for lights, ge4509. she said, "oh, aircraft landing lights?" she tells me how they use those to make fog lights on trucks, ha ha ha. she goes and pulls them off the shelf that i just looked at and totally missed them on. something like 13 bucks each light.

here is the 35w light from walmart. i never used the stuff included in the kit because my wrangler is wired for fogs form the factory
light 1.JPG

here is how the lights are attached in the housing
light 2.JPG

here are the two bulbs from the back, they look identical but you can see the numbers are different 4411 versus 4509 and 35w versus 100w

here is the finished product

Hey everyone. What do you think about these I found? They say 100w 12v which are the same as the 4509's but you can choose a beam pattern angle!

Or does anyone know the beam angle of the actual 4509's?

i used the stock wire and switch and it worked fine earlier. i was going to show off my cool lights at break tonight at work but the dang jeep won;t start now.

as a side note, i think i have the old low amp alternator because as soon as i turn the lights on, the needle swings left on the old ammeter

you guys will smoke those stock fog light wires if you leave those lights on for any period of time. unless they are run thru the fuse box. then they most likely have a 15amp fuse cause the stock fog lamps are 55watt, and your new buld is almost double at 100watt. the 100watt lights that you get such as daylighters or baja lasers in a kit has a 30amp fuse with them. I have 10 offroad lights on mine. 4 LED 27watt each(equal to 100watt in brightness) on an overhead bar, 2 daylighters on windshield brackets 100watt with a 30amp relay, and 2 baja lasers on the front bumper 130watt with a 30amp relay. and i am running a high output alternator plus dual optima batteries.
