|klebart||Hello. New 2013 Jeep Wrangler looking for some advice. A (small) rotted tree branch fell while I was driving and hit my front passenger headlight. There is no damage and the headlight still works. However, the headlight is now pointing very high. If you push on the driver's side lamp it doesn't go anywhere. If you push on the passenger side lamp it moves in at the top about a half inch but reverts back to it's original position when you let it go. However the aiming is off and it isn't as solid as the driver's side lamp. Any ideas? Thank you.|

I put the Silver Stars in my Mustang GT and the headlights in my 2012 Jeep we bought new are still brighter. The Jeep seems not too bad.

Long term consensus is that the Phillips X-treme 80+ is the best bulb replacement upgrade: Amazon.com: Philips H13 9008 X-treme Power Headlight Bulb, Pack of 2: Automotive

Now that the days are getting short, I remember how much the OEM units suck. This thing is only second to my '67 Cougar, which has the original non-halogen sealed beams.....

Everyone always flashing their high beams at me cause they think mine are on but i cant see anything because these headlights are so terrible. And offroad? Wow.
The worst are people who simply turn their highbeams on, rather than flash. These people will be getting the lightbar treatment as soon as its hooked up.

|11-21-2013 12:48 AM|
Ok. Forgive my ignorance. Ok coming from a TJ and used this with an upgraded 140/90 12 w bulb. I was very satisfied with their performance. What do I have to do to my 07 JKU to obtain the same output. I still have the h4 upgrade kit. Do I need a harness? Is it plug and play? And how much?

I have been considering the set from Quadratec Delta H4 Conversion. Anyone used these?
Delta Tech 01-1148-50 - Delta H4 Hi/Lo 7" Halogen Headlight Kit for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
Also considering the wiring harness even though it says you don't need it.

|Lusus_Naturae||^ Coming from the TJ world, that H4 kit looks a lot like what a bunch of the TJ guys would use and often recommended. I don't know how it translates over to a JK, but I would imagine it would be pretty good. I remember often seeing recommendations for the Hella E-code before, I don't know anyone running them in a JK though.|

Looks very similar to a new product from KC I asked about:
Lights « Headlights « Jk Headlight Kit « KC HiLiTES: Auxiliary Lighting, Off Road Lights, HID Off Road Lights, Fog Lights, LED Light Bars, Driving Lights, Light Bars, Wiring Accessories, Flashlights, Torches
Anyone try this yet?

Is this the H4 kit suggested? I've had HID lights for 8 years so I'm already scared about the change to what is apparently god awful lights on my new Jeep.

You have done an amazing job on your headlight reviews. The problem is that I'm not looking for the best of the best, money's no object type of headlight.
I'm on a tight budget, but I really need to do something about the junky OEM headlights on my JK.
I spent over an hour reading through your reviews on another site, and I was super impressed, but I didn't find what I was looking for.
If it were your jeep, and you had around $100 for an upgrade, What Would You Do?
Your opinion means a lot to most of us, and I know that there are a ton of owners that are in the same boat as I am.

OK, got them and seems that was a mistake as I can't retun them. What to do, scrap them and start over -- Better bulbs? Please advise, thanks much.

I installed an HID kit, and 4 KC 130 watt slim lights, two on the windshield brackets, and two on the front tube bumper, got lots of light now, burn the paint off the guy in front of me, if I'm not careful. LOL

|DiSH||OK, tested the new Philips +80's tonight. While a definite improvement, I don't think that it's 80% better. Probably more like 40%, but it is better, and it was cheap and easy to do.|

|DiSH||Installed my Philips +80's today. Will test them tonight and give feedback.|
