Munson821 I went with the KC replacements on my 03 Rubicon and cant complain they made a huge difference over stock for around a $100.

KCrisp I had this problem with my 99 purchased last year. Both of the connectors on the back of the bulb were corroded. I took them off and sprayed in electronics cleaner like you'd use to remove corrosion from a dirty pot. I think Radio Shack still sells it. That fixed about 99% of the problem, cleaning and reseating the two grounding screws took care of the rest.

Wallygator Jerrys right. But hell if you are gonna unplug, might as well do the cheap upgrade for the exta 10-15 minutes it takes

Jerry Bransford I agree that the dim light is very likely nothing more than a dirty or corroded connector. Odds are very good that simply unplugging the harness connector from the back of the headlight and reseating it will take care of the dim headlight.

I've bought several sets from these guys and have been happy with them: Susquehanna MotorSports - Auto Performance Product . Even the kit with their standard bulbs is an amazing improvement over stock. Stick with the regular bulbs if you're running stock wiring (like me) but if you want the ultimate, run a relay and use the 55w/100w bulbs.

DevilDogDoc I used the Autopal E-code housings with extravision bulbs from Kragen. Much better pattern and good output.

98tj25l Another recommendation for the Hella housings, I've been really impressed with them. I also installed Philips Xtreme Power bulbs which were a big improvement also. They are noticeably whiter than a standard halogen, without turning blue like some other bulbs.

TJ-Q8 What about kc replacement head lights? I am thinking about those. Anyone tried them?
01-08-2011 10:16 AM
Neil F. For starters, plug the dim light in the other side to see if it is the bulb or the harness.
01-08-2011 09:36 AM
Melissas6570 I did the Hella E-code, and it is amazing. They work great both on and offroad.

I find my low beam pattern is wider than the Hella but the IPA highbeam is pretty skinny but throws light farther.
Must be one heck of a high beam. My Hella's are like searchlights. It seems like they throw light farther than I can see in daylight. Might be a matter of aiming them, but the pattern is different. I like the sharp cutoff on the Hella's I have, and the higher pattern on the right makes signs easier to read/see. Haven't seen the IPA's to compare, but I've heard they're at least as good as Hella.

I put one in last week. It took 30 minutes, but only because I aimed them after installing. I installed a harness w/relays at the same time. Brain-dead simple, and much better than I had before. I thought about HID's, but I've changed my mind. I don't need any more light than what I've got now. Hella E-codes, 55/100 watt bulbs.

I would spend the money on HID conversion it will last you much longer than seal beam.

Yoders.TJ I think that those sealed beam lights will get weak after a while. I had to replace one of mine about a year ago also because it was noticeably dimmer.
01-06-2011 10:44 PM
oIIIIIIo Yes, you can try it but I think it might be a bad wiring or connection somewhere.
