    Highly recommend the Hella H4 upgrades. Super simple to install, far better light output, and glass lens like OE.
    Be careful though, as I bought mine from Amazon with no issues except a missing gasket they sent over, but a friend, and a lot of complaints, noted they got poor quality from Amazon, and in my friend's case, he got right hand drive versions, meaning the light was designed to be used where traffic drives on other side of the road from the US. This TOTALLY screws up the light pattern, and you will hate them, as will EVERY approaching vehicle.
    If the say India-send them back. And good luck. But, if they say Germany, good to go, in theory at least.

    J.W. Speaker Evolution J2 are awesome. I’ve been running them for about 8-9 months and love them. Another good option is the KC Highlights Gravity Pros and a lot of folks here run the TruckLites.

    Heated Truck Lites have been solid for me.

    Now if only the OP would pop back in lol. Since this is tj/yj forum, i am not sure if he is looking for 7" round or the yj rectangle.
    Do the notches for the jk lights line up with the tj notches? All the jw and trucklites I see list 07 and up, so I wasn't sure. Plus they would need adapters for the tj harness, at least the jw's would. The Hella's aren't led, but they are a great upgrade for the tj for less than $100. And to the oo, no matter what, make sure you properly alighn them. Super easy to do with tj, and makes a world of difference. And clean the contacts in the connectors.

    Ah, got you. Missed the TJ/YJ part this time. I have run Hella lights on a JK, and they aren’t bad, for the money.

    Another vote for the Hella H4. I'm very satisfied with their performance right out of the box. And for a $30 harness upgrade I can put in some seriously bright (illegal) bulbs if I feel the need for more light.

    Then I took the money I saved over Truklites and bought an X-box.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
