Review & Install Video
I'm Ryan from exremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Hella ValueFit 4 LED Cube in flood pattern, fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers. These are also available in a couple of different beam patterns so you can get the right light for your purpose. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of these lights which is a very simple one out of three wrench installation. This comes with a complete wire and harness, so even if you don't have a lot of experience with automotive wiring, you can get these lights installed in about an hour, but we'll talk more about the installation in just a second.The Hella ValueFit line is for those of you who want a Hella light. You know the lineage of Hella, you know they've been around for a long time and they make a really high-quality piece, but you don't have the need or the want for their top quality premium product. This is going to be as it says right in the name, a little bit more of a value product, so you're going to get a little bit of less light output, you're going to get a little bit of a more scattered beam pattern, you're not going to get as high of a quality of components used in the construction of these lights or of this harness, however you still are getting a Hella light. So if that's what you're interested in, this is going to be a good spot to go.These lights are going to come in right around the same price as some of the other brands that are out there, and the light output and quality are going to be comparable. So again, if you want a Hella light but you don't have the need or the want for that premium top quality line, that's where this comes in. These lights are going to be a die-cast aluminum housing with a polycarbonate lens. As it says in the name, these have four LEDs per light and they're gonna put out around 600 lumens, which is plenty for what most of us are using our lights for. As we said before, this is a flood pattern, so I would recommend this for up on your roof rack for a reverse light or something down low on the bumper, a flood pattern isn't always the best choice for an A-pillar mount light because you can get a lot of light dancing off the hood and back into your eyes again. However, for those areas where you want a ton of scattered light, that's where these are going to fit in. As I said before, these do come with a complete wiring harness, so that harness is going to have your fuse, your relay, and your switch.To get a little bit further into that installation, again, it is a one out of three wrench install and it will only take about an hour to complete. The first step is going to be actually mounting the lights, and if you're mounting these on a light mount tab or any bracket designed for a single post light, it's going to be as simple as bolting it on. If you don't have a bracket or a tab that you're mounting these on, you may end up having to drill a hole. Either way you can use the included hardware to get these bolted down. Once that's done, it's really just a matter of stretching out your wiring harness. There are going to be a couple of leads on the harness that have to go to the lights themselves, there's going to be a positive and a negative that go to your battery, and as I mentioned, you are going to have to pull one wire through the firewall and that's going to be your switch wire that you can mount anywhere on your dashboard. Once you have all of the wires pulled, it's just a matter of making all of your connections at the batteries and at the lights and testing them out. This is going to be very simple even if you don't have a lot of experience with automotive wiring because of the harness that's included. A pair of these lights goes for around $120, including the wiring harness, and in my opinion, that's not a bad price. There are going to be some other lights out there that are going to be right around the same price, give or take a few dollars, some of those don't include the wiring harness like these ones do and you're still getting a Hella light even though this is their value brand. Sometimes when you jump down in cost a lot, you get some off brand no-name light, you're gonna end up with one of your four LEDs burned out in no time or a bunch of condensation behind the lens. You're not going to have to worry about those issues with these lights and they're going to be a good middle-of-the-road price while still getting a quality light.So if you're looking to add some auxiliary lighting onto your Jeep, you want a floodlight that isn't a premium price premium light, but something that's a little bit more of a workhorse in the middle of the price range but still quality, I think this is going to be a really good place to look. So that's my review of the Hella ValueFit 4 LED Cube Light, fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
