2014 headlights better than older JK's?

I noticed that the headlights on my 2014 JKU are significantly better than on my 2007 I traded for it. Did they change headlights or was just simply a case of the lenses on my 2007 being in bad condition?

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.

I was wondering if there had been some sort of an upgrade at the factory at some point myself. I test drove 2 different 13 JK's at night in the fall of 2012 a little over a year ago. I was so disappointed with the lights I bought a set of Sylvania Silver Stars to put in my newly ordered 2013 JKU. But when I picked up my Jeep in Dec 2012 I was shocked at how bright the lights were. The lights in my JKU were considerably better than the lights in both JK's I test drove a few months earlier. So I still have the Sylvanias in a box.

It is probably just due to the haze that builds up on the lenses. I still have the housings+bulbs from my '09 and they are identical.

2012 with aimed and upgraded silverstars and still sucks. I think a couple of maglights taped to the fenders would be an improvement.
