HEADLIGHT REVIEWS
EDITOR’S PICKS

LX-LIGHT Round Black Cree led Headlights

Overall Best

LX-LIGHT’s LEDs are a great pair of headlights, offering an excellent suite of features. They boost brightness and visibility and add a cool blacked out look to your Jeep Wrangler.

Using CREE chips instead of the traditional LED, LX-LIGHT has achieved a massive 50% improvement in brightness over stock. Testing showed a 3200 lumen output for low-beam and 4500 lumens for high-beam configurations.

Numbers aside, we can tell you from first hand use that the brightness gains are real. Compared to stock, the visibility is miles ahead.

The LEDs also have that white look that’s effortlessly cool. But more than that, it makes it easier to identify hurdles and obstacles in the road. Paired with the blacked out housing of the headlights, the pure white look made even our older model Jeep look brand new.

Another point that often gets overlooked with LEDs is the installation process. With the LX-LIGHTs, we’re happy to report that fitment was simple. Included H4 and H13 adapters made installation quick and breezy, about 20 minutes in total. And you won’t need to fiddle around with any extra decoders to get that flicker-free look.

Finally, you can rest assured that you’re not breaking any laws with these headlights, as they meet all DOT requirements and are entirely legal for road use. And when you do decide to go off the road, no dust or water will enter your new LEDs, as these headlights have an IP67 water and dust resistant rating.

Pros
  • Brighter than stock
  • Better visibility
  • Blacked-out look
  • Cool white color: 6000k
  • Easy installation
  • DOT approved
  • Flicker-free look
  • LED
  • 4500 Lumens (High Beam)
  • 3200 Lumens (Low Beam)
  • IP67 rating
  • Anti-flicker hardness
  • Wide range of compatability
Cons
  • Minority of customers complain of poor fitting
  • Van owners complain of incompatibility 

Zmoon 7″ Round LED Headlights

Best Budget

Offering brighter light with a wider field of view, cool lighting features, and durable build quality, Zmoon’s Round LEDs would never be mistaken for a budget LED kit. However, the price undercuts the competition while delivering a lot of the same utility and aesthetics.

Housed in a heavy duty aluminum casing, the Zmoons are built to last. The case is also water and dustproof, so it will hold up to just about anything you throw its way. If the lifespan of your LEDs is your biggest concern, Zmoon does a lot to future proof these headlights. The wider surface area makes for better heat dissipation and extends the life of the LEDs.

Brightness and visibility also improve over the Jeep’s stock headlights. Driving at night with the Zmoons installed, we were more confident and aware of our surroundings.

But by far, the coolest feature these headlights offer is the different modes. White DRLs, integrated amber turn signals for the daytime, and an energy-efficient high brightness mode for nighttime that helps extend the lifespan to a claimed 80,000 hours of use.

Besides just looking cool, these modes are pretty helpful, and more expensive brands should be taking notes.

To sum up, these headlights are high performing, versatile, and valuable that also manage to offer the best value of any kit. It has our highest recommendation!

Pros
  • Far Brighter than stock
  • Improves visibility
  • Integrated turn signals
  • Daytime running lights
  • High quality aluminum build
  • More efficient heat dissipation than stock
  • Energy saving design
  • Easy installation

Audexen DOT approved 7 inch led headlights

Premium Choice

Audexen’s LED kit for the Wrangler brings significantly brighter light, a daytime running function, and a ton of style for your Jeep Wrangler. It fits perfectly in stock and gets points for including an extended warranty that puts you at ease.

Unlike some other LED kits, the AUDEXENs are easy to install and come with all the necessary materials in the package. We found the installation process quick and intuitive thanks to the included instructions and abundance of videos online.

This kit is bright, to say the very least. Our testing registered a brightness level of almost 6000 lumens in the high beam configuration, while the low beams had an equally impressive 3000 lumens of brightness. And the difference is certainly noticeable in day to day driving, but even more so for off roading applications.

Visibility improved dramatically when compared to the weak stock setup. Down road and roadside visibility both benefit here thanks to a broader field of view and longer throw.

When you pay for a premium package, you get premium support to go with it. AUDEXEN deserves praise for offering a 24-month warranty and full customer support with this LED kit. Not that you’ll need that warranty, though.

With a best in class ingress protection rating, this headlight can stand up to the elements, perfect for a Jeep that likes to go off the beaten track.

Pros
  • 3000 lumens low beam
  • 6000 lumens high beam brightness
  • Daytime running lights
  • Improved down road visibility
  • Wider field of view
  • Very easy to install
  • 24 month warranty
  • Weatherproof, perfect for offroading
  • Stylish modern design
  • Xenon white
  • Non-polarity
  • Fanless
  • Excellent compatability
  • Dot approved
Cons
  • Can be a bit expensive
  • Packaging is lackluster
