Halo Lighting

I've recently seen some Halo LED lighting on a Wrangler 4DR. I'm interested in getting these and was wondering if any of you have had experience with these. I think they look great. I want to install them on the headlights and littler ones on the front bumper. Is there a good place to get these for a good price? Are they hard to install? I'm decently handy and was wondering how hard it is? I'm new to the Jeeping world and look forward to doing lots of cool things to it!!

Thanks in advance for any input.

Installing halos require you to remove your headlights, bake them in the over (yes Im serious), pull them apart, install the halo, and reseal the headlight. It's not superdifficult but requires a careful hand and a lot of patience. If you want it done for you, hidprojectors.com will do it, but be prepared to pay the price.

I have done a bunch of Halo installs. You CAN do it yourself.

1) Oracle Halos rings (1 color) go for about $179 a pair.

2) If you watch the YouTube video they use NON factory headlight assemblies. They tell u bake for 20 mins. For factory ones I found that 20 mins is NO way near enough time. You need to bake for 30-40 mins at +35 degrees to what the YouTube video says for FACTORY headlights. Other wise they'll never pry apart and you'll screw up the plastic housing.

3) When re assembling DO NOT fill the "gully" with silicone sealer, just a small bead all the way around the housing when its time to reseal the 2 parts back together. If you put too much silicone in the gully it will squeeze over onto the halo rings and they will be rendered useless.

4) It's not a hard project and anyone can do it themselves. If you are nervous about doing it look online and grab a extra pair of headlight assemblies for yourself in case you screw up. eBay ($40) I got them for.

Hope this helps good luck ...they are definately head turners and look awesome!

Given that you do have to follow this procedure to install them, you should consider installing some projectors at the same time and improve your headlights.

I have the hella h4 with 100/80w. I'm moving up from stock. I think I'll be happy with these for a while.

Man I want those so bad! But the ones I built on their website would cost $800+
