    Hi,
    I recently inherited my Dad's 2003 Jeep and have little to no experience with it from a mechanical perspective. One of the things that I noticed is that the headlights are very weak as compared to today's headlights. Is it possible to just upgrade to an LED bulb or do I need to replace the entire Headlight itself? Im starting out with basic knowledge and look forward to learning as much as I can.

    Thanks!

    Welcome @Tcv21 ...I suggest watching the attached video for some guidance. I'm running the JW Speaker but there are other good choices. Jeep does use pathetic halogen bulbs. One could use LED bulb replacements in the reflector but the results may not be satisfactory and blinding to other drivers. Regardless of what you decide on the most important thing is to watch the other HR video for properly aiming your head lights.
