Projector headlights
 
does anybody know how to make the halo ring in my projectors brighter? I was able to open up the headlight casing and actually replaced the leds behind the halos but even when i replaced them the new leds i used still werent even that bright. any ideas?

a lot of people say to get the headlights with the CCFL halos. You might be able to pick up a set of just halos and swap them in

Flashtech has 10k halos. They are a vendor on here so you can pm them and find out if they have halos for whatever year/model Jeep you have. I know they have them for the WKs

The reason im asking is because i want my halos visible during the daytime like real angel eyes. I bought some really bright leds from superbrightleds.com and there is no difference. are the ccfl halos bright enough during the daytime? and im almost wanting to put these halo rings behind my halo so i can make them bright enough for daytime driving.

I really can't give you a solid answer buddy...I've had them in since April with no problems. They plug into a little box, I'm assuming is a ballast. I'd imagine most failures are due to bad ballasts or crappy wiring. We're not talking about state-of-the-art, cutting-edge stuff here, this tech has been around for quite some time. We'll see what sub zero temps do to them this winter. So far though, no problems and tons of compliments on them. :thumbsup:
