TJ HID or LED headlight upgrade
Thoughts, comments or suggestions.

I have Rigid LED on bumper and windshield frame and the headlights seem sad and yellow now.

I'm guessing this has been covered in past but thought I would ask.

Personally i prefer HID, But since you already have things that are led, i would go ahead and get them. I have heard goo things about them

Go with DDM tunning HID's and Hella E-Code Euro style housings. I run this setup and so do a lot of others on this forum. HID's will run about $50 and the housings depend on where you buy them. But make sure to get the Euro specs and not the DOT, DOT spec ones are worse and have a worse cut-off and more glare.

I personally think the TrukLites LEDs are way too much and an HID can make just as much light if you get the right Kelvin rating and aimed them right.

That's great data, thanks

Check this thread, it has a good write up. I and couple others have been talking about this setup on there.

I have the Trucklite LED headlights and Sound Off LED's on the bumper. Both are stupid bright.

HIDs is the way to go & no matter what housings you get you will have glare if you stick an HID bulb into a reflector housing. I do HID retrofits, mainly JKs, but could also do TJs with some a/m housings. Here's my wife's JK bi-xenon HID retrofit set-up.
