Electrical question 24 volt system

Hello guys so acquired a set of 24 volt led spot/flood lights that came off a military vehicle. Anyways these things are sick and bright, and would love to hook them up on my jeep, is there away to step up the voltage or am I out of luck.
Thanks.

Sure ya can. Easiest way is with a 12v DC to 24v DC transformer, like these:
12/24 volt DC/DC converters 700 Watts peak
You're probably going to need a higher amperage unit, I imagine those lights are quite the draw.

I'm not endorsing them, that's just the type product you want.

May also need to consider the increased draw (in Amps) on your electric system, it may also require a stepped up alternator to keep the juice flowin'.

you'll probably be fine unless you're running additional add-ons with amp draw (subs & such).

I know late to the dance, but those are LED's. If you can find the specs on em, it would be easy enough to change the resistor value so they would work on 12 volts.
