« on: March 03, 2013, 06:05:43 pm »
looking at upgrading my headlights. getting tired of not being able to see at night. Does anyone have any recommendations on the many different types and manufacturers?

Also looking to install something under the hood for connecting various electrical do-dads. i know they make something but not sure where to find them. Any suggestions?

Connecting electrical do-dads? Can you narrow that down some? Might you be looking for relays, terminal strips, barrier strips,or just a second battery.

well i suppose it would be a add on fuse box. something with one tie in to the batt and then multiple outputs to connect all the after market equipment.

Look up (NAPA website, part # TEE PDC 701) or keywords, Power Distribution Center or Fuse Block.
This can lead to many parts you can use.

What kind of Jeep?

I have a YJ. I bought H4 conversion lamps from q-tec at the show last summer. The bulbs it came with kinda sucked but they did spread more light that the stock style lamps. I upgraded my bulbs to 5000k HIDs and I dont think I'll go back.

Or if you have a good bit of money to spend on an upgrade you could go to leds. I've seen a few YJs with them and the owners seem to really like them.
