I have an 05 KJ and im looking for some new headlights, any recomendations?
As in just the housing or bulbs ?
cant recommend these enough! https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D7SWKBN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Very bright, bulb shape fits with our housing well and as long as you rotate them the correct direction you get good spread without blinding other drivers.
KJs headlights were NEVER designed to run LEDs etc.
There is no bulb out there that works right as the reflector scatters the light pattern on anything but what it came with
I was looking to do new housing and all but im having issues finding an 85811 to h4 adapter
Export models such as my Export 2.5 RHD CRD use the h4 bulbs.
My beams were very feeble so I fitted 100 W h4 bulbs using separate relays. Worked fine but 100 W bulbs became illegal in SA so I took them out and found a good make, Osram, 65 W that does the job.
The bulbs were mounted at an angle to shine on the Sidewalk a lot....for pedestrians I presume..so I modified the mounting to get more of the beam onto the roadway in front of me.
And Export models have Beam Height Adjustment from inside the cabin.
Separate names with a comma.
