viperx6x9x DDM tuning. They make HID kits. Crazy bright, something like 5,000 lumens on the 55w kit. But no DOT approved stamp anywhere.

So these, like most HID kits, probably not street legal. So I would suggest a headlight housing that IS DOT approved and stamped as such if you get these.

Bottom line though,
Plenty of light? yes.
legal in europe? yes.
legal in USA? doubt it.

That's another argument for the LED headlights i guess. Lots more light than stock, legal, but way too expensive.

I think the trucklite led's are a great idea, especially for bulb longevity, but i just can't see paying $500 on some lights. I only payed $6,000 for the jeep, just doesn't seem very cost effective to me.
ddm?

mhanksii No one... I cant find anything on people running yellow 24/7 in the headlights of a daily driver. Is there a reason for that?
02-18-2013 01:29 PM
mhanksii Does anyone have any thoughts on replacing the wrangler headlights with yellow burning bulbs like the yellow stars from rally lights?

Duramaxxed The Beam Pattern is too Narrow on the Deltas...and the Fact that JK's have no L&R Adjustment Screw for the Headlights makes it even Worse.

Btw, my two cents. I bought the deltas shortly after I bought my jeep and they suck too. Bout to change them.

s.lamoureux Ok I knew I was missing something, once it starts getting into the $200 range I think i'd rather just wait a little longer and get the trucklites. Hopefully have the flickering fixed soon...Philips bulbs will have to hold me over until then.
02-12-2013 10:29 PM
onetraveller S. Lam.. You have to change the housings too. The H4 bulbs won't fit in the stock housings. You can buy housings, nubs and the adapters for about $150. The harness with relays is what drives the cost up, but it does make a difference in the light output.

So I can just get two of these harnesses and some h4 bulbs and it'll work fine? Makes me feel like spending 250 on the kit with new headlamps isn't worth it then. Must be a quite a bit better than just running the Philips H13 9008 X-treme like I planned

That's not a good thing...it's quite dangerous to blind oncoming traffic.

Sell the Bulbs and your OE Housings and you may have to only lay out $20 for some E-Codes.

Then even if you get some Regular H4's from the Local Auto Parts Store, it'll still be an Improvement over Stock.

The technology put in the reflectors is different. Also the rally lights come with the wiring harness to provide much more power from the battery to the lights.

bostongmw I just bought the KC headlights and they suck. Returned them and bought the Hella kit from SMS which arrived yesterday. More difficult to install because of the relay harness but should be worth it.
