Headlight upgrade
« on: April 05, 2016, 01:17:12 AM »
Id just like to let anyone looking for headlight alternatives that the new jeep headlights will work with some modification. I got these led ones for my truck and the back of the light hits the light bucket so i had to bend back the metal on the bucket but they work great.

I like it... Need a pic with power and brightness. I thought about doing the same thing for just my Hi beams on the quad light set up.

The 2 artifacts (lighting spots) in the foreground...are those in the lamps or is it reflecting off of something?  They look like they are from the lamp beam pattern and it is a waste of light; you can't even see that light from the driver's position.

I think those are the DRL lights, in his link to amazon it stated they have DRL lights. Low brightness, for daytime visibility, usually aimed somewhat towards the ground and straight out, parallel to the ground.

the low beam and high beams plugged right in to the original harness on the truck. The parking lights had to be splice in to the marker lights. I didnt have those splice in yet in this pic. The parking lights do have a magnifying lense which i belive is reflecting the lights of the low beams making those spots
