Just remember your keeping the stock wiring made for the stock underpowered headlights.

Its like this,

Your a firefighter and your given a garden hose with one of them brass nozzles.

Now your going to upgrade the nozzle to a real heavy duty nozzle hoping for better output, while keeping the garden hose supply.

but anything is better than stock!

Thanks for your concern.

"IPF H4 lights are designed to use OE electrical system. Jeep JK uses a pulse modulated control circuit for the headlamps. This type of circuit will not operate correctly with bulbs drawing greater than 55/60 watts and damage to the electrical system could occur if the headlamps are fitted with a higher wattage bulb." unquote.... by IPF.
