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
Didn’t have to flash for replacing the headlight bulbs and there’s no flicker or warnings. You do get two LEDs in the box for $38.99.

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

I have a pair of these coming and hopefully will get them installed later this coming week and will try to post some pics, another member just did a swap and said it made a huge difference, I will keep my original bulbs just incase I don’t like the light output or one or both crap out. I figure for $40 I can take a chance

They should work fine but in case they don’t, Amazon’s return policy is great; hence, you have nothing to lose.

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
Supernova V.4

Headlight Revolution will hook you up. They are AMAZING bulbs.

I was hoping that they (HR) would do a beam cutoff comparison, in the JL housing.
HR released the Supernova V.4 LED headlight bulb video.
Looks good.

When I swapped out my halogens for Beamtechs I removed the grill, there is a reason on the HR video he did not show the driver side swap, there are AC lines in the way that do not move. I’m not saying it can’t be don’t as @TTEChris put some Beamtechs in without pulling the grill but for me pulling the grill was easier, I have not seen the Supernova V4 in person but my Beamtechs for $40 are a huge improvement

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.

We bought beamtech h13 from Amazon for 40$ and damn are they bright. Great light output and no adjustment needed. Highly recommend. Didn't expect this for $40

Curious ...
Do you have any Beamtech beam pattern pictures on a wall from approximately 20' ?
Do they fit inside the sealed housing without any modifications?
There appears to be a few Beamtechs. Which model did you guys buy? Thx.

These are excellent. Very similar to the the OEM halogen beam pattern but 3x the LUX. Thanks.

My only hesitation to swapping my halogen bulbs to any LED bulbs is the potential for snow buildup due to low LED heat. Those LED threads have me concerned as I live in a snowy winter climate.

I would be interested in seeing how well the Beamtech patterns compare.

When beam patterns start spraying, it can look ok from behind the wheel but maybe not to oncoming drivers eyes.

The closest I have is one in my driveway and they fit in the housing very easily as there are no big drivers to stuff inside them and here is what I bought

Any installation tips installing these, as far as placement in the housing? Or is it a one way install? I’m talking about the LED’s once inside..if you feel me.

The bulbs go in the same as the factory halogens as far as fitting in just make sure the LED chips are positioned at the 9 and 3 position and the hi beam goes on the bottom

Excellent, that’s what I was looking for. I should have mine today, Amazon same day..LOL I see you can just remove the air box and clamp to make it easier to get to the passenger side.

Thanks,
Mark
