I upgraded my factory halogen headlights to Sylvania H13 SilverStar Ultra Halogen Headlight Bulbs. They are much brighter than the originals. Top photo is original, sorry for the blurry shot. Also didn't think to set the camera for manual exposure, so the auto exposure of the camera may have affected the pictures. Still, bottom pic and real life results indicate much improvement.

Got any more pics? These seem like a great, safe option.

Those are the best pictures. Due to the camera auto exposure, the other pictures aren't accurate. There are some you tubes regarding the ultras if you want to do more research.

Nice, where did you get them? What made you decide to do those over led headlights?

I got them from Advance Auto Parts because I had rewards to use and with the rebate they were less than $30, which answers both questions.

That looks like a nice upgrade. I was thinking about the Mopar Led kit but they haven't released the price yet and I'm sure it's crazy. This may end up being a suitable alternative.

I used them on another vehicle a few years ago and they made a nice difference, only problem I had was they did not last much more than 1 year especially with DRLs,

Just got them today, very happy with the results, can definitely see more clearly and no more yellow light.

This appears to be the chief complaint...many reviews state these bulbs last less than a year. How much is the LED kit for jlus and how tough is the install?
