Headlight Wiring Harness

I am trying to find a decent headlight harness but having a difficult time finding a mid-range priced one. I plan on buying Hella headlights and using H4 bulbs. I don't want to spend $120 on a harness but also don't want to buy one of the cheap Putco ones that everyone seems to have problems with. Is there a harness priced between $40 to $100? Would this one work/be better?

Amazon.com: KC HiLiTES 6316 Add-On Harness - Up to 2 Lights: Automotive

Thanks!

Tell us a bit more on your goal for this mod -- there are a few different ways to rewire for H4 bulbs, from merely 'translating' from H13 to H4 to the $120 SMS/Rallylights harness which takes power directly from battery, but still uses the Jeep's switching so you retain all the control features. That's what I did and it allows you to get the most out of your new bulbs & lamps.

he Painless Wiring harness is expensive and worth it. Yes, it costs more than the headlights and bulbs but you get quality relays and it simply plugs in.
