KC LED Headlights

I think it’s very much safe to say, OEM Jeep headlights just suck.
Really, Chrysler should do something about it, but until they do, one of your first modifications to a Jeep should be an improvement in night time lighting. I went for some time with OEM headlights, but only because I was selectively using my off-road lighting on the roads at night.

After some searching, I came across the KC Hilites LED lights for the Jeep. Amazon always seems to have a great deal on them, and includes everything you need (more on that in a moment, however).

Installation is quite simple and I should have taken some photos. It is suggested you remove the front grill, but I only removed the top clips and pulled it out slightly. My bumper light bar was in the way of removing it completely.

When all was back and assembled, they have a nicely done flatter finish than the OEM assembly.

And of course, a much nicer, whiter light output than the OEM filament bulbs.

A night, these lights are quite bright, and combined with the lift of the Jeep, I often have a few people flashing me thinking I have high beams on. After a few months of this, I decided to take care of the problem and had a 3M tint applied to cut down the light just a subtle amount, but also offer up some protection to the lens of the KC LED headlights.

The KC Lights are a welcome addition to my Jeep, and I’d strongly suggest you look at getting a set. You may want to get the anti-flicker harness if your Jeep has daytime running lights. I didn’t get the harness, but disconnected the light sensor on the dash so my lights are on full when the Jeep is running.

    How does the color temperature of the KC LED Headlights compare to the Rigid Duallys? I’d love to see a picture to help me decide on the headlights. Thanks!
