They suck.

You'll find answers here:


Upgrade stock headlights
Anyone help with head light question?
Dimmest headlights I've ever had

When you see Hilldweller's posts, pay special attention. I think he used to BE a headlight, and is now reincarnated in human form.

My 2007 JK headlights sure did. Upgraded the bulbs to Philips X-treme Power's. 30 bucks and 30 minute install. Much better now

Still waiting on my tires. Supposed to ship tomorrow or Monday, so hopefully...

Once I get those, I'll do lift, wheels, bumpers, a few other things. It's coming along. No rush. I kinda like working on it one mod at a time.

I run the fogs too for now, but also plan to upgrade the headlights, even if it's just better bulbs.

Thanks. I probably should have tried "search" first. I see there is a whole thread about this. I am just gonna go with the H13 Extreme bulb suggestion for the time being as my shop is too cold to work in in the winter.

As a side note, my new jeep is fricking awesome even if I can't see where I am going.

If only there were decent replacement bulbs for the fog lights. I want to replace those as well as the headlight bulbs.

Is it the 9008/H13 xtreme, as noted above, that I would need for the 2012 JK?
