These are the type the OP got I beleive. The Hella kit is much better quality IMO but no halo.

i thought in order to have h4 bulbs you had to do some wiring work???? Does the h4 bulb plug into the original plug for the stock headlamp? im thinking about getting these but dont wanna mess with a but load of wiring. i understand that you gotta do some wiring to get the halos to work but what about the h4 bulb?

As the OP stated, the only extra wiring in this case was for the halo lights. The h4 bulbs connect into the stock light plug.

Regular H4 bulbs are not expensive at all. I have the Hella Vision Plus headlights on my YJ. Although they aren't very pretty, they sure do put a nice beam of light on the road.

I bought the rampage h4 lights mainly for the new headlight assembly with the clear lenses. They look good, but the bulbs suck. I'm replacing them soon with 6000k HID's and probably gonna add halos. They're gonna be sick.

yeah i just ordered my set of halos. So basically when i get them i should rtv them to seal them up and from there its plug and play besides splicing a few wires for the halos correct? now when i go to get replacement bulbes i want to avoid buying crappy ones such as bigorangeyj did. What is the best h4 lamp that the stock headlight wiring and stuff can handle?

I would like to see what they use for the "halo" on those.
Is it just an LED? If so, could the LED be replaced with a red one? I don't want a blue ring on my red Jeep. You can also put the "halo" on a switch so it can be turned on or off at will.
Any close up of the "halo" light?

I believe the Halo part of the light is part of the H4 bulb. (correct if im wrong) I think its just a 2 filament bulb one for the halos and one for the headlight.

I think the closest your going to get of the halo light in action is from the picture in the 1st post. or from here

i think their seperate lights. hence the extra wires. but yeah you can wire them up to a switch, or the parking lights if you want too.
