CJ5 Headlight Upgrade Help

Ok, like most of us with CJ's, I simply can't see where I'm going at night due to the crappy headlight output. It's actually getting quite dangerous this time of year due to shorter daylight hours.
Because of my total lack of electrical knowledge I need something plug and play
Found these on Amazon:
7 Inch LED Round Headlight Conversion for Jeep CJ CJ5 CJ7 Tractor Trailer Truck 150W 6000K Hi/Lo Beam Led Headlamp 1 Pair
Any advice on whether these would work or not would most certainly be appreciated!

Ok, I just purchased the relays on Amazon. Crossing my fingers they end up being the Hella.馃
I purchased this relay and didn't get the Hella. It is still well made but i was disappointed that it only has one fuse for both relays. I contacted them about that and they claim its the new improved version. I can always add the other fuse later
These arrived today. Love Amazon. Got Hella written all over the box and relays. They did a heck of a job if they're copies. I can tell they are made of good quality materials.
Nice. Maybe they are sending the cheaper version to folks on the east coast.:frown2: I got what is shown in the description minus one of the fuses
CJload, I think it's interesting that your harness was 'made' by Octane Lighting, and that Octane Lighting is listed as the seller on the Amazon page where others have received the Hella kit. Something still doesn't quite add up for me. I'm wondering if the advertising tactic is to keep the pictures 'generic', and then fulfill customer orders with the Hella relays/harnesses when they have them in stock, and then 'in-house' harnesses when the Hellas are out. Who knows. Regardless, hope you get the 2-fuse Hellas when you re-order-

Hoov, I think your thinking is spot on.

Make sure you get the one sold by USA DEALS STORE and fulfilled by Amazon. Don't go to "other sellers" as they may be sending different harnesses. That may be why some people are receiving different items.
That's the same vendor I used and got the same one CJload got
Just ordered this again, see what I get Wednesday.
I reordered and received the Hella's this time. Good luck with your order.

Just as CJ5chic said make sure the vendor is USA DEALS STORE. Looking back at my last order the main vendor was Octane lighting.
