Hey guys,

Looking for suggestions for the best led replacement bulbs for the halogen housing. Im looking for more light output but i dont feel like changing the housing yet because id like to wait for a dedicated 9inch light instead of retrofit 7 in lights.

Thanks

I had some great luck with ORACLE Lighting. Super bright and you can do the halos as an option:

Did you do the Fog light bulbs too, if so which ones match the color ?
No, for the fog lights I bought the Mopar OEM LEDs from take off’s, which came with the entire housing. Got them for $50 from a local seller who upgraded their bumper.

Doesn't exist although those that have done it will defend it to their death. The reflector isn't made for LED or HID. Scattered light that may blind oncoming drivers. Won't pass vehicle inspection if you have one in your state.

There's really nothing to defend; they just simply work better and more efficient than the halogen OEMs.

Headlightrevolition.com claim that the Supernova V.4 LED bulb is a great replacement. They have them for the headlights, fog lights and reverse lights.
They have done YouTube videos for the fog and reverse lights.
I am waiting on their demonstration of the Supernova V.4 in the JL reflector, before I consider a purchase.

I have the headlights and yellow fogs and so far I love them. What would you like to see? I could take some pics or a short video if you’d like.

I was hoping that they (HR) would do a beam cutoff comparison, in the JL housing.

I ordered the Beamtech led bulbs and are fantastic for a great price... no issues at all, very bright and certainly good enough to make me want to wait for new LED options made specifically for the JL

So did you have to have the JL flashed when swapping bulbs to avoid flickering or bulb out warnings, also on the H13 ( 9003 Hi/lo ) you linked is the $38.99 for one bulb, I recently upgraded my front bumper and lost my halogen fogs in the process and the halogen headlamps are lacking so this would be a decent option until a direct plug and play headlamp becomes available

Would like to see a short vid or some pics on light dispersion, I lost my halogen fogs in doing an upgrade and the halogen headlamps are very lacking, did you have to do anything special for the install or was it as simple as just swapping out bulbs
