In retrospect yes, but some of us have already bought the Jeep with halogens so we need SOLUTIONS!!! LolIm playing devils avocate here but im wondering if dicking around with swaping bulps in headlights and tail lights and in fenders, wires to halo’s etc is worth it vs. checking a box for $ 800, and being done with it.
I replaced the stock bulb with Silverstar (not Ultra, they don't last long) and I'm happy with the lights. LEDs definitely put out more light but in rain or fog that's actually not good. No need to flame me if you love LEDs, I'll probably swap once the price comes down to a reasonable level.Best thing about halogen-
Melts the snow and can find a bulb nearly anywhere ....
There are a few benefits to halogen, but to a lot of people brighter is better and they want the look. I can always turn off fog lights and personally I want more light for off road purposes. Taking full advantage of stock light positions is the first step to having a nice blended pattern and full coverage off road.I replaced the stock bulb with Silverstar (not Ultra, they don't last long) and I'm happy with the lights.

BTW, I've tried LED bulbs in a prior vehicle and agree 100% that that's not the way to go. A halogen reflector needs a halogen bulb.
p.s. Everyone says pull the front grill to change bulbs. Poppycock. Change the driver side just by removing the bulb cover. For the passenger side remove the art intake (2 clamps) and pull the airbox straight up. Piece of cake.
My DRLs dim (to about half brightness) when the full lighting system is turned on, or when the full lighting comes on when using Auto modeCan you tell if they dim when the headlights are on? I'm going to try flipping my LED aftermarket bulbs over to see if the 2 prong connector is just matching up to the higher intensity only or something.
Funny you say that, because that is originally how I was going to wire them. For my purposes demonstrating to a larger audience (many of whom may not have a Rubi with factory aux switches), I thought I would go this route. The halos are super low draw! I am enjoying the setup!So as soon as I pressed "post", I realized something. I could tie into my Aux swt and just leave that swt in the on position all the time since it is switch thru the S-TECH control box when ignition is turned on. I do this now with my LED Christmas wreath on the front of my jeep! Sometimes you just have to talk things thru!! haha.
