after market headlamps for 96GC

I came across some headlights called Halo projector headlights. they sort of look like the type on the 2013 GC. I think they would look cool on my 96 GC and throw more light. I'm reluctant to take a chance on them though because I've never seen them on any 96's on the road. Anyone have any comments on them?

I had thought about those also. I found a few pics on Google Images and one on Amazon.com from a supplier. They do look pretty mean but come with a hefty price tag. I opted for the Chinese direct replacement for about $40 I got all six headlamp pieces to replace my yellowed and cracked OEM lenses. Halo projectors on my Charger are great for visibility and I get bright-lighted by on coming traffic regularly. New lenses make a huge difference no matter if they are OEM replacements or something fancier if you have too much cash lying around.

There are no god quality projectors for the ZJ other than ones you build yourself. The rest like these, are a waste of money.

Couldn't agree more. Although they look cool, they will fill with condensation and have terrible light spread. Go with the Kolak HID upgrade or do what I did and just buy a new set of lenses with good quality bulbs. My night vision increased immensely when I got new clear euro lenses.
