2005 LJ Headlight upgrade question
 
so I noticed that the new wranglers have the convex style headlamps, and I've seen some upgraded with super bright, white lights. They're not the cheap, bluish hue type but reminds me of the white lights on a BMW, or Lexus. Super bright!

I was wondering if there are some options for my 2005 LJ. I upgraded to the hella H4 headlamp on mine, but kept the stock bulbs it came with.

anyone have any suggestions? thanks!

I got the Truck-Lite LED complex reflector headlights. Expensive, but they are badass and very bright, white light. And its just plug and play.

I put a set of IPF headlights with PIAA Night-tech series bulbs, 60/55 watt = 110/100 watt , 3600 kelvin, very pleased with the pattern and amount of light. The IPF lens throw good light in the ditch's to spot those deer. IPF's aren't DOT put it's not a problem where I live, Stick to the 60/55 watt bulbs though unless you up-grade the wiring

how do they turn out to be double the watts from the bulbs? sorry.. noob here
i plan on keeping the original wiring.. so i may go with osram since i've heard great things about them.

1. Get some better bulbs - Osram or Narva
2. Install a relay kit and better wiring

I got autopal h4 conversions off of fleabay for $25. A little better than stock, but not dramatic.

I run the truck-lite LED's as well. I love them.

Here's a video of the install, they're plug 'n play. 6 minutes in theres a comparison with standard lights, H4's, and Truck-Lite LED's.
