Rallylights JK Hella Headlight Kit

I installed my Rallylights Hella 7" round kit in my Jeep yesterday. It consists of a stout harness, a pair of relays, two Hella reflectors, and a pair of Hella bulbs. I won't detail the install; the kit is easy enough that instructions are not needed (they are included though and are quite thorough).
These photos have a set of Narva 70/65 bulbs though...
I also got around to shooting pics of the light from my HID's after tinting the lenses selective yellow.

In the "before" pics, my Jeep is pretty far to the right of the lane; there was a TJ next to me with Trucklite LED headlights.
In the "after" shots, I'm quite a bit farther back than I had been in the befores ---- but the decoy stuffed dogs are at the same spot.

I'm extremely pleased with them.

About double the actual lumen count of a typical H13 Silverstar, actually.
And none of the beneficial yellow-orange-red wavelengths of light have been harmed in this experiment...


EDIT.
Correction: the bulbs are Osram. I used Narva in the reverse lights.

so did you use the bulbs that came with the hella kit or did you use an upgraded/substituted one?

i remember on one of the other threads you said you were going to sub ones in, did you end up doing that.


the lights look really good. even without the HID fogs. good job.

and what HID fog kit did you use?

I used the naughty Osram 70/65 bulbs.

The HIDs are HIDx from RDM Offroad; $109 each and free shipping. They only come in 6000K temperature (catering to the Disney demographic there) so I tinted the lens to selective yellow (filtered out the blue and purple) by using Duplicolor Metalcast Yellow (500 degree) spraypaint.
There are so many things wrong with blue or bluish light for forward vehicle lighting that it amazes me that people still buy the crap. There's even a new "kit" for the JK's lights that come with blue-tinted IPF bulbs; I find it remarkable that ARB is associating themselves with the product...

They're FDOT legal for motorcycles, single burner H4 applications....
Not the worst thing to do in life and I probably won't be doomed to Hades for it.

yeh but its the same thing as two motorcycles riding side by side (which is 100% legal) down the road with their headlights on (which is required day or night) so i see no harm in it and it kinda makes you wonder WTH does FDOT think when they make the rules sometimes...

I also did a mod to my HID lights. There's lots of boring science behind this.
