Not really if you do the kits that I showed. That is the way I am going to go.

DDM Tuning: HID and LED Lighting get the H4 bulbs 35 or 55w your choice, and then get the hi/lo bulbs. Thats all you need.
They come with the ballasts, etc.

Here are some diamond clear housings for the YJ's ready to accept the H4 hid bulbs (just no projectors) http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/200mm-halogenLamp

Then on E-bay just get the euro glass projector housings for the YJ ($25), and plug it all in!

Then switch to brights and you'd think there were lights on the roof.

I used just the housings w/2 brand new stock bulbs in them. Being clear, they reflect the light out really good. Anything clear w/out texture is your best bet I'd say.

+1, especially on the wiring.

I don't even run the silverstars, though when mine eventually go out I will. I also use 2 driving lights for bad conditions and have em sequenced with my highbeams. I don't need to land an airplane, but I can see deer and furry woodland critters a LONG way out, which I do need.

indirocz28 This company is extremely recommended. We have used their HID's in Supra's for a long time. Motorcycles and other cars as well. Plus their prices are some of the best, as well as products and customer support:
These are the lights for the YJ, You have the option of 35w, 55w, and color. You do need to add the $20 option for the "hi/low" switching harnesses due to the YJ's single bulb design. If you go with new clear or projector housings they will use the H4 style bulb. The same H4 style is selectable here.

Still HID's and projectors will be brighter:

87 Florida YJ Thanks for the tip Chris. That's the way I'm going

indirocz28 Here are the ones I was talking about.
6000k still gives plenty of brightness, almost blinding, and a little bit of that blue tint.
4-4500K will be extremely bright white.

indirocz28 Your best bet for brightness would be to get the Projector beam light assemblies for the YJ, then buy a set of HID bulbs and ballasts (55watt if you can find them) and go between 4500-6000k. That will be plenty bright.

I was looking and found 35watt HID bulbs, which does help cut down on heat, and they are usable for high and low beams for the YJ. I haven't yet located a 55watt version of these.

87 Florida YJ Me too. Hope someone that has already upgraded to the brightest 'street legal' lights can point us in the right direction.

Lucky2balive Man I would say just get fog or driving lights, I normally deck out my Jeeps in them and it helps a TON!
