Having an AMC Jeep wiring is barely good enough.
I wanted better lights.
Well I got them.
About $70 for the shells and LEDS.

I seen the LED they have an updated version of it now.
Carefully djust these and no one will ever high beam you, but you will have a perfect shadow free low beam, high beam is like a pair of spot lights, and it runs both low and high when high is on.


The Shells are a crystal DOT lens off amazon
Halogens.

LEDs'

LEDs on high.
Adjustment is very critical, one gripe is a bit to much spread between high/low beam, and only reason i can figure why is the LED panels are extended slightly farther than the H4 bulbs.


Lowbeams produce more/better tlight than the LED cubes on the front...

Hey Caish, thanks for the reply. I "dig the photo's - worth a thousand words!" Will accomplish this upgrade as you have, before heading to James Bay Basin. I am much obliged!

Always looks better from behind the wheel but what about oncoming traffic? Probably blinding as hell.

Thanks Caish for the info. Last year I replaced the old stock headlights with Hella H4 units. I am using stock halogen bulbs and want to upgrade to LED's but was afraid of the large fan on the back of them. When I replaced the lights I didn't think there was enough room for a fan behind them. Did you have any issues with the back of the LED's hitting the headlight bucket?

Why stressed adjustment, when adjusted properly they're no more blinding than a new car...

There is a fan behind these but clearance with not an issue as much as the box that is attached to the wiring for them, but I got it tucked off to the side behind the bucket.
These things on high beam run both high and low side simultaneously.
