I have a set of 9007 SilverStars that I used for 3 weeks before selling the car, I'll take $25 for them.

The sealed beam silverstars are far superior to regular halogens. My experience with the "capsule" style has been less than stellar. Okay light, but not the incredible difference I got when I installed a set on my XJ.

The real trick to brighter lights is to hook your bulbs up to relays with 10 or 12 ga wire right from the battery - have your old headlight lead power the relay. You get a chance, check out the voltage drop between your battery and your headlight terminals - it can be over a volt - and that volt you're losing is worth about 15% in light intensity.

Same here, I put the Ultra's in my ZJ and they are a tremendous improvement. I'll be getting some new lenses to replace my "Yellowed ones" and that will be the clincher.

They also pimped me like one of Huggy Bear's hookers as well, still haven't received the rebate check. I sent it in back in January.

I just replaced the lights in my XJ with 200mm H6054 H4 bulbs / housings from Ebay for around $50 including shipping. Took 5 minutes to install and HOLY CRAP are they bright!!! Autopal was the name on them.
