Round Eye install

I just installed my round-eye headlamps and WOW what a difference in brightness!

I am a photographer so I figured I would check the output before and after.

The round eye replacement lamps put out 100% more light than the OEM lamps. Granted if you have fat fingers like I do the install is a bit of a pain but what a difference!

Just wanted to share.


Driving a Wrangler makes going to work feel like you're going camping.

At night, I just run a set of KC daylighters with my OEM lamps. LOL.

Got ignorance? Please see below.

Warning, this is illegal in many states(though you might get away with it if they're on your bumper and look sort of like fog lights). Carry on.

Glad to hear it, I just ordered mine, the Silverstar's just aren't cutting it.

The stock ones were pathetic.

congrats, you really don't realize how bad the stock lights are until you get new ones. I love my roundeyes too.
