KC Headlights

Hey guys, I have an 06 TJ that's in desperate need of a headlight upgrade and as much as I would love to get some JW Speakers I can't quite justify spending that much money on them lol. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these KC's I found, I figure anything will be better than what I have now. I've already done some research into the Hella E-Codes as well and figured I'd rather just play it safe and stick with DOT approved lights.

Any feedback would be great!

I used this:


These have glass lenses and aluminum reflectors so you don't have to worry about melting plastic lights like KC's.

Also I used this wiring harness. It has two relays and ceramic connectors so heat won't damage them.


This setup works great and was easy to install.

Buy 100% glass E-Code H-4 headlamps, and upgrade the wire harness. Any headlamps that are plastic, or look car-show cool, will perform poorly. Unless you need DOT approved headlamps to pass state vehicle inspections, they should be avoided.

I have those headlights (KC's) and they are better than stock. Pretty much plug them and and adjust.

For DOT approved they work good and are brighter than stock.
