Brighter headlights for the baby boomer JK owners

I am ordering my 2016 Wrangler this week. I have a feeling I may want to upgrade the headlights since at 65 I don't quite see as well at night as I used to. Any suggestions for after-market bulbs that won't break the bank and will hold up for at least a few years? The easier to install the better. Thanks.

I have seen some people liking the quadratec ones. They are LED and the ones that I am looking into, but I'm not sure if they will fit the 16 JK. I don't know why they wouldnt but I guess you never really know.

I ended up with IPF 920H glass headlamp replacements, along with KC Hi-lights 6307 H13 to H4 wiring adapters, and Phillips H4 +130 extreme vision lamps. Completely changed the light output over the stock setup, and only ran me about $98 shipped from Amazon with my prime account, purchasing everything separately.

I went a similar route using Hella's instead of IPF's probably same results. Their real easy to change out, first reach under the fenders and disconnect the turn signals[find the clip and slide towards you and then press the tap down], then pop the six plastic retainers on the top of the grill[hood up], and then pull the bottom part of the grill out[about 6 or 7 v clips holding it in]
