Quoted from a Canadian Jeep site.
guys, do youself a favour, these stock headlights suck big time. Head out and get yourself a set of either Hella or IPF E-Code H4 housings, and a pair of GE Nighthawk Platinums H4 bulbs. Then get your hands on a couple of H4 harness.
Now you have 2 options, simple and quickest way is to just cut off the stock H13 plug and splice in your new H4 plugs. Or if you're uncomfortable with cutting anything, you can do what I did. Order a pair of H13 male connectors and make an adaptor with the H4 harness and they'll just plug into the stock H13 harness.
The problem with the stockies is not the bulb, it has a real crappy reflector. the E-code housing have a directed beam and a crisp cut off. Trust me, I'm extremely happy with my results. The difference is night and day, I'd say they're 10 times brighter than stock. I have both the hella and IPF, I bought the Hella first and the IPF for comparison. I personally prefer the Hella, better cut off.
Northridge4X4 sells an IPF kit which is essentially the same as what i did, but you can head out tomorrow and collect all of this in one day so why wait for shipping to arrive?
