Lights, Camera, Action!

OK...stock headlights were miserable. I saw on another forum an offer from Northridge 4x4 for the IPF 920H4 headlight replacement for the JK. Well, since I've already got IPF lights on my bumper and my windshield it seemed like a perfect match.

I must say, the lights do give more light than stock so I'm happy. AND...looks pretty cool when they're all lit!

Well.. Not totally now that I take a closer look but I notice we both made the right decision with under-lighting

Who needs extra lighting, it's so hot and clear here in NorNv, that I'm gonna carry an extra FLASHLIGHT !!



I wonder if I should carry my 400 watt windturbine ??

Nah!

When I was doing the build-up of the jeep it was a only a little extra to add the 'underlighting' so I thought why not? I like it. You can change colors (they're LED) though I leave them on one setting. You can even have them react to music...bit much for me so I don't do that!

I put the NOTTO HID kit on mine and was skeptical when I ordered them but their great. I can't believe how bright they are and the quality of this is second to none and made just for the application. Best 200$ I've spent yet.

I use them on one setting also, and It just proves anything goes with black

Does the "underlighting" make good rock lights ?

Yep, like that everywhere I've ever been. Some certain types enjoy turning them on going down the highway for fun, and everyone who runs em gets lumped in the same category.

Haven't had a problem yet. My fiancee had neon on her jeep years ago and was pulled over a few times for them...but they were RED. I'd think it shouldn't be a problem if they're not red or blue...only time will tell.

Where can I find the neon lights you have under your jeep

They are Optx underbody LED kits, 300 ultra-bright LEDs within two 48" and two 30" tubes. The kit includes a dash-mounted controller offering fingertip control from inside the vehicle. There are ten adjustable-speed patterns and seven color selections.

He's got them in stock and will ship, send me a pm if you want his contact info.

Looking good buddy. Got a few questions though. What color did you pick for the headlight conversion? Blue or white? Also what do you think of the ipf driving lights? I want to mount a set on the windshield and maybe another set on the bumper later.

I took the blue. Don't have anything to compare them too, but they look blue, but the light appear white to me? Could be because I don't have a comparison.

I love all my lights...I will say though that other than the headlights, the others are too bright to use on road unless nobodys coming at you!

Probably not a problem in Alaska!

They look good in the pic but seem slightly blue to me. That is why I asked.

I am more concerned with the driving lights. Are they just like the ones on northridge? I like how thin they look. If so do you have any problems with glare. Also what mounts are you running? I'm about to put in an order with Dave so I want to get all my ducks in a row.

We actually have lots of road traffic up here. Too much to use anything but heads and fogs on the road. I am so used to hid lighting and these stock low beams suck. The windshield lights will purely be for offroad use. We have a lot of time up here with little sunlight so the more light I can throw at the trail the better.

No glare. Not sure what mounts I've got, just a stainless tab. I do recall that both sets of IPFs came with the 55 watt bulbs and another higher power bulb (100 watt I believe) and of course I put the higher wattage bulbs in.
