Anyone who’s ever driven a Jeep JK at night understands how downright dangerous the vehicle’s dim factory headlights can be. Many of us have tried aftermarket bulb replacements, but sooner or later, we all end up looking at lighting up the night with one of the many LED options on the market. But, which one? They all put out significantly more light than the stock units, but there are other factors to consider. Some come bundled with the necessary H13 to H4 anti-flicker harness, while others require it to be purchased separately. LED headlights’ cost greatly varies, too.
Here are some basic specs on some of the more noteworthy options. Which one would you run on your Jeep? Vote in today’s poll, then leave a comment and tell us why you’d choose that headlight over the competition.
