I haven't broken one yet so fingers crossed

Several choices. You can make your own, get a cheap one from somewhere like Ebay, or get a fancier one like the IPF/ARB one, which is what I did. Haven't heard any complaints about cheaper options, but I really like the way the IPF one is put together.

98tj.steven I ordered the low beam because I have hella driving lights on the bumper I can use if needed.

Yes the Lo beam kit is less but you want the Hi/Lo so you have both. I LOVE mine.

GNS1310 Guess I need to do a little research before I post! Not as simple as switching out a bulb!

That's the exact combo I run in my Jeep and it's amazing! Make sure you adjust them correctly though because they're super bright and will annoy other drivers if you try running them with the same adjustments you had with your sealed beam bulbs.

GNS1310 Was also looking to upgrade my headlights, but thinking of going with those SilverStars or the Philips X-treme power lights.
Going to add a couple long-range blindingly bright KCs in the coming months, but looking for a basic change to the headlights themselves, something simple and under $50

plug-n-play.

but as commodore_dude said, there is a significant voltage drop through the stock harness for any headlight not using a harness/relay setup.

Sloan409 E-code headlights with 55watt HIDs in 4500k, at least 30x brighter than stock and relatively cheap at $50 for the HID kit and about $40 for the headlights

Headlights

I want to have better visibility from my headlights. Brighter and clearer I'm not familiar with different types of systems with Jeeps (halogen, HID, xenon, etc..) Does anyone have any suggestions?
