started headlight upgrade

I had some things come up and needed the get my headlights upgraded quickly.

My current set up is Hella H4 lamps with delta wire adapters. WOW what a HUGE difference! I can actually see where I'm driving now without the need for having the factory fogs turned on.

I'm amazed at the noticeable difference from the drivers seat.

Next step is to swap out bulbs with phillips xtreme and get the wiring kit from rally lights.

Why the hella H4 over other options? I needed it done sooner rather than later, I got all the parts at one place (including installation).

by far the best upgrade I've done.

You're going down the right road, and now you can see where you're going! I'm waiting for a Cibie setup from Daniel Stern, already have the Rallylights harness.

I love my new Jeep, but I don't see how the headlights got through engineering. I've had a lot of cars, expensive to cheap, and the stock Jeep lights are the worse I've seen since my 6-volt Beetle.
