    Jeep 7" Round Head Lights

    So, Its time to ditch the Sealed beams.
    I want to spend $200, No more than $300. LED preferred, but if the pattern is gonna look like doo...I will stay with a H4 Conversion.

    Some of my Top options.


    Working in the lighting industry, Im a nerd now when it comes to Color Temp and Light Distribution...

    The TruckLites always impressed me, just too expensive (they make GOOOD margin on those).

    Thoughts/Opinions?

    Hella e-codes and silver star ultras for me. High beam is great. Low beam cutoff is a little low.

    I'm interested to see what comes of this. I have silverstars in mine, which are better than stock, but still leave me wanting more.

    I pulled the trigger.

    I had a conversation with Meaders, about what those guys were running. - Motorcycle Hella housings typically.. In Glass, So i did some further digging into glass housings. I was quickly diverted to Miata and Bronco forms..

    Bronco

    I have been able to personally see the results of Hella E codes and was impressed.

    So when i read those couple reviews and then found these goniophotometers plots.

    I decided to try out the highly recommended Cibie 082440 Light Units with HELLA H4 12V 100/80W Bulbs.

    Hopefully these will fit, there is some mention of these being used in the JKs but nothing in the TJs. I will measure the voltage drop after install to determine if i will need to build a heavy duty harness. I did purchase a set of Ceramic Pig tails to isolate some of the heat from the factory plug. I will report back. I may try and make some photos of the before and after patterns and light outputs.

    Shooting fully manual on a DSLR will be a really easy way to compare light outputs.

    I've been rockin the Trucklite LED's in my ride for over a year now. I know I did lots of research before I got them. Things may have changed in a little over a year, but at the time I had found that Trucklite had the only tested, reliable, DOT approved, direct replacement lights on the market. I paid about $450 from NAPA. The price is steep, but it has been well worth it. No issues that I can see, no problems, and stupid bright white light.
