Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

I put those headlights with harness in my 2001 XJ and it is simply amazing. One of, if not THE best mod I did. You will like it.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

Glad to hear, I look forward to even better lighting. The upgraded harness definitely helps, ans better bulbs/housings will make it even better.
The other night, when it rained, I was definitely thankful for the upgraded harness, and aux. lights I have.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

I used the 100/80w bulbs in the e-code lenses. The cut-off is fantastic and just as good as my wife's 2014 Taurus SHO. I took the time to focus them correctly and to date have not had anyone flash me at night on the low beams.

I figured I would give them a shot for the price, I figure if they suck I can return them to amazon.

Also, ordered a set of the RE 9900 CAD-brackets from a seller on Amazon for LESS than the RC kit!
Hopefuly I will be riding in better comfort soon.
I have these installed. I dont know why but I have no high beams with them. Might just be an issue with my stuff. Curious if they work ok for you.

Having high beams or not has nothing to do with the housing the headlights are in. You either have burned out filament on the high beam side, or your harness is messed up somewhere.

we saw this happen with a buddy coming back from the rubicon, but he had no low beams . we swapped relays and it was fine. the relay was bad.

I think my phone misquoted the part I was talking about. I meant the bulbs he listed. They came to me as single filament.

This weekend I'm going to take my housing back out and verify what I just said. It was only after installation did I come to the conclusion that the bulbs were single filiment (but that was looking through the glass at that point). I also put in a new harness so its entirely possible this has been the issue. I installed this harness though as I don't trust the Putco one.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

So, apparently these H4 conversion housings that I got..
http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B...p age_o00_s00
.. are Autopal? At least that's what the boxes say that they came in. I guess we shall see how they work.
Also, received my RE drop brackets too! SO, looks like I will be busy this weekend.

The picture of them on that link shows Autopal inscribed in the glass front of the lenses.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

that is super tempting for 43$ shipped. I already upgraded the harnesses and headlights on both jeeps though.

Well to be fair, the description name is different so its misleading for sure.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

Not too much to update. On my days off it has been raining, and was spending most of my off time with family. My sister and her husband left for Japan again last week.

Received my DBO stubby recovery bumper just after new years. My friend is going to paint it for me. I want to upgrade the steering box spacer at the same time I install the bumper.
Hopefully in the next couple weeks I will install my adjustable LCA's and CAD brackets.

Also, still need to install my new H4 housings/bulbs, and "reverse lights"

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

DBO stubby bumper w/ receiver installed. Bumper and brackets painted by cencal96xj 's dad, Brent!
Plan to add tube or plate "wings".

Thinking about how to mount my LED lights and license plate.

Are there cheaper alternatives to the Curt 50$ receiver mount bracket?
