Almost every modification on this website is an unnecessary degradation of some degree. If we were all worried about making things as practical and safe and efficient as possible, we'd all have Civics and Corollas.

You're absolutely right it degrades light output to a degree, it's a physical certainty. I just can't believe how polarized people are about it

Most modifications are actually functional to some mechanical degree though, whether it be passive or active. So long as proper parts and materials are used and they are installed correctly per manufacturer spec, safety should not be an issue. Darkening a headlight lens is purely aesthetic and serves zero purpose, plus it also reduces its already limited capability. I'm also quite certain it's illegal to cover your headlights in any state with anything so long as it's dark and they are in use, though it's probably fine during the daytime. I really don't give a **** if people want to do it, because it gives me something to point and laugh at. People are free to do whatever they want to their vehicle, and I'm free to make fun of them for it.

And if you're getting flashed by other drivers with your stock headlights, you didn't re-aim them after putting on a lift and larger tires. You've got at least 2" from the tires alone, plus whatever that kit netted you.

This is a pretty valid argument.

I don't even have the 'angry eyes' mod but I'm thinking about doing it temporarily to snap comparison shots to really see how great the difference is. I need new headlights anyway, one is cracked and holding water, so I can sacrifice them in the name of science.

Wowwww... I seriously cant believe the bickering going on here. This kinda makes me sick. Maybe we should open a new section called "Butt Hurt Corner" so you all have a legit place to hang out.

There's speaking your peace and then there's being an utter d*****bag and some of you need to check that.

Seriously who cares if someone else wants angry eyes on "their" jeep?!

Yeah and like, who cares if people want to cut off their catalytic converter, right? If you're going to do stupid **** to your vehicle, be prepared to get called out on it, especially when it violates many state (and possibly federal, since all safety equip falls under that) laws.

It seems like there's two types of Jeep owners: those that want to look cool but are hard to see because they've tinted their already craptacular headlights and those that want to blind the **** out of everyone on the road with their misaligned XTREME HID's or fog lights or whatever.

I dunno, I'm hoping there's a middle crowd in there somewhere! I spent a good 20-30 minutes dialing in my H4's when I installed them; they cut off right below the top of the trunk on most cars so I think I'm good.

I think so. I'll be going the JW route with them aimed correctly and that excellent projector cutoff.

Nice

All us crazy people with litedots and angry eyes.. Not the true jeepers we could be.. I mean look at the rest of my jeep, its probably no surprise I am an angry eye user.

For the record I am considering for a while ordering a retrofit kit from the retrofitsource so I can get some projectors in a clear lense.. Eliminate all the light output issues with doing this anyway. Plus would just be plain sexy..

Hell I have H4s and I don't even get flashed by other drivers, but I also re-aimed the lights after I did the swap.

That being said, angry eyes are among the stupidest of fads coming around for Jeeps lately. Also, if you're going to tint your signal markers and tail lights, that's fine, but do it the right way like I did and replace the bulbs with LEDs you can buy online. They're brighter and make up for the difference of being tinted easily.
