0III0forlife, I really like the look of your YJ. Are the headlights that Overkill posted the link for the same or similar to what you have on yours? How difficult is the install?

Similar to what I have. Made by the same company. His post is for HID bulbs, and mine have an H4 bulb in them.

I tried the HID lights before but didn't care for the color of the light and the "flicker" that they had.

With the H4 style, I just ordered a brighter bulb for in mine. A stock head light has a 55W low beam and a 65W high beam in them, mine are 80W low beam and 130W high beam. Not much need for all the LED driving lights that I have facing forward now.

I would definitely like to get something like that and lose the stock head lights. Where'd you find yours? How hard was the install?

I have h4 conversion housings as well. Install was a piece of cake. I had 6000k 55w HIDs in them and recently got rid of the HIDs. Way too bright, and with the non-projector housings it was blinding to anything in front of my vehicle. Now I have h4 silver star bulbs and am happy.

I got mine on Ebay, And like the other guys are saying, you have to do the headlight relay harness kit or it will smoke the headlight switch.

Even if you just do the headlight harness kit, it will make stock sealed beam headlights seem twice as bright as they normally are. Really makes a difference. Because they are getting a true 12V to the bulb, instead of around 10 or so, due to the loss from the stock wiring harness.

Thanks for that info I'll be looking into it. Does not sound too hard at all
