H4 vs. H4 with full harness
 
Is it even worth upgrading to H4 if I don't re-wire with rallylights or Daniel Stern? Our junk headlights have bad reflectors and horrible power. Is H13 vs H4 power worth $120/$150 for a harness?

Make you're own for about $20. It's not hard.

I just did the Stern upgrade with the Cibie headlights and the recommended Sylvania bulbs. I used the standard H4 plug and play harness and adjusted them correctly. The lights are better but still not what I was looking for on low or high beam. I'm going to try the upgrade harness next and see how that performs.

Oh yeah....FYI, my adapter harness that I bought from DS came from Rallylights.

I just ordered the KC Hilites H4 kit from quadratec.

I'm curious to see how much better the upgrade it on it's own, with the Phillips Extreme +80 bulbs, and ultimately with a new harness.

My KC's will be here Friday. I'm just wondering about the JKs weak power to the bulbs. Regardless if they're H4's of H13's

The stock harness will not have the power to operate the h-4 bulb efficiently. The wiring harness, is plug and play, super easy…also you get new reflectors… from http://www.rallylights.com/vehicle-type/domestics/jeep/sm6024j-headlamp-kit-for-jeep-wrangler-2007-replaces-h13-lamp-with-hella-e-code-h4-headlamps.html
Something in think is the single best mod you can do.
Take a look at

Hope this helps
