Hey, guys. Today I'm here with the Delta 7-inch Xenon Headlights fitting all 2018 and newer JL Wranglers. So if you've damaged a headlight while you were out on the trail, your factory headlights have burned out, or you're just looking for a step-up in performance, this option by Delta is going to be a great choice to take a look into. So, if you're a fan of the factory style classic look with the chrome reflector and the clear glass, this is going to be a step in the right direction, but this is also going to be a big bump-up in the lighting performance. These will integrate HID technology or Xenon technology that will be a high-intensity discharge bulb, giving you more output of lighting helping you out in those dark back road and even just dark road situations. This set of headlights is also gonna be made of high-quality and heavy-duty materials making sure that these are able to stand up to whatever you throw at them while you're out on the trail. And what I really like about these is that they're going to give the front-end of your Wrangler a modernized look especially over those factory halogens with a cooler color temperature as well as that halo on the outside of the headlight.With all that being said, these are gonna be roughly $450 making this one of the more expensive choices on the page. Now, it does come down to the quality of the build and the construction as well as the technology integrated into the light, so you are getting what you pay for as far as materials and performance is concerned. Now, comparing it to other choices on the page, some of those are just going to have different designs, they may integrate different technology as far as just the standard halogen or even LED technology is concerned and some other options may not include the halo. So it does come down to your preference in the design of the headlight, what you're looking for out of it as far as technology goes, and if you want to include the halo on the front-end of your Jeep or not. So in my personal opinion, I think if you're looking for something with a classic look, it's going to hold up on the trail and also give you a big upgrade in lighting performance as well as style, this choice by Delta is gonna be a great choice to take a look into.So, install is going to be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. We do have to wire these in a little bit, but it's very simple. Most of it is plug and play. So you're gonna need some very basic hand tools and about an hour's worth of your time. And speaking of that install, we're gonna jump into that right now. The tools that I use for my install were an impact wrench, flathead screwdriver, pair of pliers, and a 10-millimeter socket.So, our first step to this install is to pop our hood and then we can take off our grille by removing these six-pop clips attached up at the top. So along the top, we are gonna have six-pop clips. I'm gonna use a flathead screwdriver to remove those. You can also use a trim removal tool. So once those are removed, we can lift up on this part of the grille. There are two pins on either side that sit at the top of the support here. You're going to make sure that those are out. And then we can tug forward on the grille and it should pop right off.Now, we can start to remove the headlight. There are three 10-millimeter bolts holding it in. I'm gonna use a 10-millimeter deep socket just to give myself a little bit of room as well as my impact wrench. Once those are out, we can pull our headlight forward and push down this tab and release the wiring harness. So, now we can install our headlight. The driver side is gonna have a longer halo positive and negative lead on the headlights, so make sure that you are touching them to the correct side. Now we can go ahead and plug in our connector. This is going to be an adapter harness for the JL. Make sure that you hear a click. And then we can plug that H4 connector into the back of our headlight. And then once our adapter harness is plugged in, we can make sure that this halo harness is accessible, just gonna tuck it down here because I am going to on this upfront. And then we can mount this up in the factory location with the factory hardware. Now you will be able to adjust these as well with an Allen key if you need to. And once all your bolts are threaded in, we can tighten that back up with a 10-millimeter socket.Before we continue into our install, I wanted to stop down and show you a little comparison on our factory headlight and our new Delta Xenon headlight and show you a couple of differences and what benefits that you're gonna see out of this new headlight setup. So right off the bat at first glance, you can tell that these have been pretty similar and basic setup. They both have chrome reflectors, a clear glass, and the Delta option is going to be a little bit smaller at 7 inches in comparison to the 9-inch diameter factory headlight. Now even though this is going to be a little bit smaller and compact, this is going to have more lighting performance out of the bulb and the setup overall and it is actually gonna be a lot more durable than your factory housing. It's gonna have a lead crystal glass and metal housing and silicone boots to make sure that this is able to hold its own, especially while you're out on the trail to make sure that it's also water and dust-resistant in comparison to your factory setup where it is mainly a plastic construction. So if you were out on the trail and take a branch to your factory setup it may get damaged or crack the lens, but with this new option it will be able to, again, hold its own. Now, the big step up is in lighting performance. This is gonna integrate Xenon HID technology or a high-intensity discharge bulb over the factory halogen. So you are going to be pushing out a lot more lighting out of this new Delta headlight. It's gonna have a 25% increase at a collective 2,000 raw lumens coming out of the headlight. That's gonna help you with better lighting performance, a more uniform light pattern and just a further being down the road in comparison to the factory halogen which is great for stock applications, but not really great as far as performance goes. Not to mention you are getting a more modernized look, you will be integrating a halo into the new Delta headlight and it's going to have a cooler color temperature in comparison to the halogen bulb on the factory which usually has a yellowish hue. So, this new Delta headlight is going to have a 4300K color temperature which is gonna be a lot cooler and give you a modernized look in comparison to that factory halogen. So enough about these two on the table. Let's go ahead and mount up our new light and wire in those halos.So we can repeat the same process over on this side by removing those three bolts with that 10-millimeter socket. Before we mount up our headlight we are going to wire in our halos. You are going to have a driver-side and a passenger-side. The driver-side is going to extend over and we're gonna wire the halos into our passenger-side. So we are going to leave that driver-side over. I'm going to take the part where that is going to be plugged into our headlight and run this underneath just to make sure that this is clean and sitting behind our headlight. There's also a ground and a power wire which we will wire into our headlight wiring harness that we're gonna pull through as well. Now what I did with the ground wire is put a larger connector on here. This is just going to allow us to utilize a bolt on our Jeep already. It does come with a self-tapping screw. I did not want to use that just because I don't want to tap into our Wrangler, but you can drill a small hole and use that self-tapping screw if you like. I'm just gonna put that to the side real quick. It also does come with zip ties as well as 3M tape to anchor these down. But now we can put our power wire into our wiring harness. So, on the halogen version of the JL or the halogen version headlights, you are gonna have three wires. You're gonna have a ground wire. The one next to that is going to be your low beam. The one below the ground wire is going to be your high beam. Now on an option with a daytime running light integrated into the headlight wiring harness, you will also have another wire here. Usually, you would want to tap a halo into a daytime running light because they will be on all the time. However, since this is not utilizing a daytime running light, we are going to tap into the low beam. So for this, we are supplied with a vampire clip. So I'm just going to attach this to our low beam wire. So once you get the wire into the adapter here, you can take the power wire and put that into the other side. Grab a pair of pliers and clamp this down. That's what's going to connect these two. Once that's secure, we can secure down the clip, make sure that it clips into place. And then we can tuck this wiring back and attach our ground.So right on the side here there is a bolt where we can ground our wire. So I'm using a 10-millimeter socket to remove that bolt. Put it in place. Kind of angle it back so it's not going to interfere mounting up our headlight. Thread that back in, tighten it back up with that 10-millimeter socket. So that should be a good ground. Then what we can do before we go ahead and mount up our headlight is just clean up some of this wiring, make it a little bit more compact. There are zip ties, again, provided in the kit. Now we can attach our adapter harness to our factory wiring harness and mount up our headlight.So now that our halo is installed, we can plug this in and tuck that back, plug in our adapter harness, make sure that we hear a click, plug it into the H4 connector on the back of our headlight. And then mount this up in the factory location. Tighten that up with a 10-millimeter socket, and then we can attach our other side to our halo. So this should just sit behind the grille. What we can do is actually zip tie this wire to the grille there and mount this in a location that's going to keep this harness in place. Wanna make sure that this wire is not touching any hot components. We can grab a piece of 3M tape, stick that to the back here, peel off the other side. And we can stick this on the best location we can find. We can stick this right here, make sure that this wire is tucked back. You can zip-tie this if you need to. Tuck it right there. And then we can reattach our grille. All right, so we can just pop this back into place. Give a little push on the bottom of the grille. Then we can reattach the clips up at the top. Now we can close up our hood. And we're all set to go.That's gonna wrap it up for my review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe.

Delta w/Halos on our '18 Wrangler Sport
Installed set on our '18 2-Dr Wrangler Sport - very pleased with improved lighting over stock... both low beams and high beams are big improvements! Halo looks unique and adds DRL aspect that our stock lights did not. Only hold-back from giving full 5-stars was installation was more difficult than anticipated. Took to my fav Jeep shop (Nate at Performance Offroad of Wisconsin) and they installed for ~$125. They were able to locate and wire to correct circuit so the halos would be on all the time, and were fused properly. Did not anticipate that complexity. Would recommend for anyone suffering with stock halogen headlights... this is a great upgrade!Helpful (1)
Can I have just the halo lights turned on during the day for that extra cool look?
You would just have to wire them into your parking lights in order to have them function is daytime running lights. This will basically mean, if the car is on, the halos will be on.
