|teknoid||I went with Silverstars first. They were a big improvement, but nothing like the E-Code/H4 setup with a harness I switched to a few weeks later. I can actually see, and not blind oncoming traffic. I don't like stock HIDs, so I definitely didn't want aftermarket ones (just my opinion, I think they're annoying). E-Codes may not be DOT compliant, but I haven't had an issue in the year I've been using them.|

DO NOT get a standard US DOT H4 housing. At a minimum, you need a European E-Code (Bosch, Hella) housing if you go with HID. European specification lighs haf a sharp cut off line and do not allow as much glare as US DOT. This will better control HID excessive glare. In addition, they need to be aimed correctly.
(The debate I am sure will come up. I have had HIDs with Hella lenses for 4 years and have not been flashed once. This is on my daily driver and road trip vehicle.)

I want to ask if you have any sollution about more space in my tj because now I have a baby and I need more space to carry things.

After buying some H4 housings (black not recommended) you won't go wrong with hids. Personally, I can't justify spending stupid money on headlights that'll get broken or stolen. A few years ago I stumbled upon a gem and once I got my first set, I've never purchased any other halogen bulb again.

Well worth the money plus they look very nice installed.

Agree the stock headlights suck. The 2014's are supposed to come with better ones (maybe then available from Mopar). You don't say or show what year your Jeep is, but if it's a 2013 the simplest, cheapest alternative is to change out the bulbs to Philips X-Treme bulbs. There is extensive discussion about the pros and cons of other alternatives on this site. Some people are Trucklite fans, some are JW Speaker and a host of others. HIDs may not be legal in your area, are very costly and can present serious issues of blinding oncoming drivers if not correctly installed with the right housing.
So you might want to do a little research elsewhere on this forum and then pick your poison. I got the Philips bulbs, easy peasy and they are adequate.

|AbsolutCaptain||I've got delta tech quad housings. $150?? And got the DDM hid kit, 35watt 5000k hi/lo bulbs for $75. Brighter then stock. But no so obnoxious that it blinds other drivers.|

Delta housings and 60/55W bulbs here, along with a custom harness I made myself. Easy enough to do, and much less expensive than a pre-made harness.
If you live in the land of salt like I do, make sure the relays and connections are weather-proofed, regardless of who makes the harness/relays.
