Jeep engineers could correct me if I'm wrong, but any hunter will tell you that in the wilderness incandescent lighting is gonna be your best friend. You can't see as much detail with LED or Xenon lighting, so as the TH is suited to go offroading in, you don't want to misjudge an approach because your headlamps misconstrued your depth perception.
GRANTED, light rails on rock crawlers is a big thing now and they look super gnarly but those things are thousands of lumens and at that point is kind of a waste. IMHO it's just a fad that LED's have come so far to give such brightness.
Rally cars still use incandescent lighting (halogen).
Hope this helps!
