Yeah, the bulbs are good to go on the jeep. They are not kosher for US regulations because they are 6k. Off road use only haha.

Re: HOW TO: Remove and replace your D1S headlight bulbs

First off, I'm not being sarcastic or critical, just asking an honest question.

What is the real world benefit of this modification? Does it increase the range or in any way make the lights more effective or is purely aesthetic?

The higher the K value the lower the lumen output. The 6000 K lights will still effectively perform just as well as the factory lights. Roughly they both put out three times the lumen output of a halogen bulb. Personally I prefer the 6000 K and 8000 K lights, they seem to light the road better in my opinion. Other than that, it's a purely aesthetic mod.

Hard to tell right now, when it gets dark ill get a better idea. They look white in the daytime. They were labeled as "flash white". I have 6k HIDs in the fogs as well. So at night time I'll get a comparison better. Oh yeah, my DRL I swapped to 6k LEDs as well. Ill see how well the 6ks match up.
