UFOtestpilot I would suggest that if you put any money into it for lighting, at least make it an improvement. If you don't need better lighting I don't understand the question at hand.

Seriously, any cheaper than that and you should just get some wagner sealed beam replacements and call it done.

ZClayAllDay No offense intended (honestly) but those look like something more appropriate for the ricer crowd. I would stick with the known quantities.[/QUOTE]

Ricer? haha

That's not a very high bar.

spr0k3t Another option: Susquehanna MotorSports - Auto Performance Product

This is a kit for the Hella E-code 7" H4 conversion kit. I would still recommend going with the RJM harness to get the best output. When it comes down to it, Cibie > Bosch > Hella > candle sticks > stock. The Hella lights are still very high quality. After talking with some people who have used both Cibie and Hella, most say the only difference is price. Having seen a TJ running with Cibie housings and compared, I would say there is definitely a better spread for light output by about three feet on either side at twenty-five feet out. Still, check out what others have to say... not just on the wrangler forums either. The 7" round H4 conversions are available for many cars/trucks/rigs.

relatively inexpensive: Bosch housings ~$45, bulbs ~$10, RJM harness ~$70

They are 60/50w sealed beam halogens ... which are barely adequate.
These are what I'm looking at

I'm hooked on the black housing though they look sweet! Do you know if theyre at least better than stock? This is what I'm looking at: 97-01 Jeep Wrangler Projector Headlights - Black :: Wrangler :: Jeep :: Lighting - Projector Headlights :: Dash Z Racing

-I found some pretty sweet headlights they're called projector headlights. They're in a black housing and come with H4 bulbs. I don't know anything about lighting so are these good? I found some similar ones, also black, but theyre called crystal headlights. Whats the difference? Theyre both only like 40 bucks and Im wondering if anyone has experience with them?
Thanks
