Factory Headlight FYI

Well as everyone well knows, the factory headlights are not great. However, in the last few months I noticed that the headlamps on my daughters stock 2dr were not bad compared to my lifted 4dr. So, I decided to play with the headlight adjustment to "dial them in". Well, it appears that the beam on these headlamps is very narrow, so if they are adjusted properly they are not too bad. For me I adjusted them while on the road to match the pattern of the stock Jk and now all is well. I still have the Lightforce lights for the country roads when no one else is around, but at least now on the highway I can see..

Any headlight system that's legal, even my wonderful Z-beams, is only as good as it's aim.

Click this for proper aiming procedure.

Safety fast,
