Silverstars and K&N

I was going to head to an auto parts store and pick up some goodies but everything I want is cheaper on Amazon, and my guys at the shop will do all the work free of charge so here's my questions....

2004 Wrangler Columbia Edition

Is the K&N 33-2114 High Performance Replacement Air Filter the right choice? How often should I pop it out and clean it?

Headlights - Sylvania H6024ST SilverStar 65-Watt High Performance Halogen Headlight, Pack of 1
Do I just buy the bulbs or do I need the entire enclosure? Are these things worth it at $20/each? I definitely need some extra light where I live and I'm not quite ready to buy some KCs!

Thanks for any help.

the stock lights are sealed beams. you can only replace them with new sealed beams, or you need to install a housing which will accept bulbs. The stock wiring will handle 55watt lights, any more and you need to change the harness.

I like these:

X2 on the don't use K&N comment. Worst filter of airborn dirt since the screen door in a Texas dust storm.

I replaced my stock sealed beams with the Silverstar units last year and am quite happy with them. Big improvement over the stock units.

Just put Silverstars in mine today. When I bought the Jeep it has mis-matched replacements, what a difference!

I really like E-code H4 headlights. I'm on my third set; currently running these with standard H4 bulbs.
