What's up guys. Just ordered the LMC truck Headlight Harness for my XJ. I Plan on buying the Hella E Code Conversion this week as well. My sealed beams are HORRIBLE and I want to be able to see the road at night. Do any of you folks have any bulb suggestions with the E Code's? Just want to talk with someone that may have done the upgrade.
You'll notice a big difference just with the harness. I've got 55/80w Hella bulbs and they're great, infinitely better than the stock lights. Ive got bad eye sight at night in general and have zero complaints with them.
Thanks Motorcharge. Yeah my eyes are getting worse and It is hard for me to see at night. Right now I can barely see 10 ft in front of me at night on my stock Sealed beams...Well with holes and water in the headlights. I'm going to do it right the first time. Hella bulbs. Never seen those. I will have to look for them tonight online. Thank you for the information. Hopefully this will cure my night time light blues!
Im running Hella 80/100w bulbs in my Autopal H4's. Im not real sure how much the higher wattage bulbs are compared to street legal wattage bulbs, I did my harness and bulbs at the same time. I do know it was night and day (so punny) difference over stock. X2 on one of the best mods ive done.

Well I have to have something other than these sealed beams. Even brand new I can't see well at all. My other vehicles have bright headlights in them and I get into my old Jeep and feel like Jeb has a flashlight on the hood shining. My harness should be here this week. Going to order the Housings tonight. Get this show on the road. Next I have to figure out this oil Leak I have. Going to start by replacing the Valve cover gasket.
Harness arrived today. I ordered Hella E Code Headlight Conversion Tonight! Getting closer to getting everything together for the conversion! Now to decide on bulbs! Also scored the brand New HAYNES manual today for reference! Loving my Jeep!
For the money its easily one of the best XJ upgrades you can do.
I agree. I do a lot of night driving and I did the H4 upgrade with the IPF housings and harness. It is an awesome upgrade, especially on rainy nights and in the snow. The headlights are one of my favorite mods on my XJ. The H4 housings are also more friendly to other drivers and won't blind them when aimed properly. The Truck lite LEDs are probably the ultimate headlight, but they also have the ultimate headlight price tag.
