Upgrade the headlight harness first, the Factory wiring is inadequately sized. You will see an immediate increase in brightness.

Upgraded headlights range from Sllverstars, to a variety of LEDs in a wide range of price and quality. Others can comment .
With upgraded wiring, H4 housings can be used which have a sharp low beam cutoff, allowing higher wattage bulbs to be used.
I have run IPF housings for years, along with Hella 80/100-watt bulbs.
Both XJs are still Real XJs
