Review & Install Video
I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Delta LED HALO seven-inch headlight kit, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This headlight kit is for those of you looking for additional light output, especially when you compare it to the factory dingy and dim JK headlights. These light sources are also going to last a lot longer than a halogen light bulb will. Of course, these housings have built-in LED HALOs, which are an immense styling feature that a lot of you guys are after. Now, these headlights are going to be considerably cheaper than a full projector LED headlight kit. However, they're also going to have less of a focus pattern and a little less brightness than those full-on projector kits. Now, if you're looking for a full-on LED projector headlight, you can always look at the KC LED headlights, or the Raxiom LED projector headlights. But of course, they are going to be more expensive than this setup. This kit is a bunch of different parts that work well together, all put in one box for your convenience. The housings themselves are a seven-inch round reflector housing with a glass prismatic lens, and the light source are Cree LED headlight bulbs. Also included in this setup is a harness with built in resistor for the HALOs around the outside of the housing, and adapters to go from the H4 bulbs that are included in the kit into the H13 headlight harness that's included in your Jeep. Now, one thing that I don't love about the bulbs that are included in this kit is that all of the diodes on the LED are on the same side. So when you flick on the high beam, you'll have all three diodes on the bulb lit up, so you will get some additional light. However, it's not going to change the pattern of the light at all. It's still going to be a low, wide pattern. In my opinion, the LED bulbs that have two diodes on one side and one on the other are a little bit more effective, because when you put the Jeep into High Beam mode, you will get a much higher and more spread out light beam, which is really what you want when you put the high beams on. If you're looking for a bulb like that, the Raxiom LED bulb and the Lifetime LED bulbs that will fit right in your factory housing do have that diode setup. Getting this headlight kit installed in your Jeep is a really simple process. Everything is designed to be plug and play, so you don't have to cut or solder anything. The first step in the installation is to remove your factory headlights, and in order to do that, you'll have to remove your factory grille. There are a few plastic clips along the top of the grille that can get removed, and then just give it a pull and it'll come right off. After that, you can remove the factory headlight retention ring by removing the four bolts that are holding it in place. Then, finally, remove your factory headlight from the headlight bucket by unplugging it from the harness. After that, it's just a matter of plugging your adapter harness and your HALO harness both into your new headlights, putting the headlights in place, and plugging the headlight harness into your factory Jeep headlight harness. Once the headlights are seated firmly into the headlight buckets, you can replace the headlight retention rings with the factory hardware, and put your grille back on. After that, it's just a matter of routing your HALO harness up to the fuse box to pick up power for your daytime running lights, and you're finished. The installation, again, is very simple. Even if you're somebody who's not familiar with 12-volt automotive wiring, you can get this job done in less than two hours. Just follow the instructions carefully. Again, you won't need any specialty tools to get this job done. Just a screwdriver, some TORX bits, and a trim tool to pop those plastic clips off your grille. I think this headlight kit is a good value, assuming you know ahead of time what you're going to get. These are not going to be as bright or have the focus of a full projector headlight that costs $1,000. But then again, these are nowhere near $1,000, so that should be expected. These are going to be a vast improvement over your factory JK headlights. But they're not going to be a top of the line KC or Raxiom projector LED headlight. So if you're looking to upgrade those dingy and dim factory JK headlights to an LED headlight that's going to provide a lot more light at a much clearer and crisper color temperature, and you don't want to break the bank, I would recommend taking a look at these. These are also a headlight that has a HALO built right into it, to give you a daytime running light, which is a feature a lot of you guys are after. Again, if you're looking for a top of the line, brightest, most focused light, we have those projector LED headlights as well. But if you're on a bit of a budget, these are a great option. So that's my review of the Delta LED HALO seven-inch headlight kit, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
