Gosh, someone said it clear as day what I've been preaching for ages! Thank you Mark!

@fusseli - We have had several forum members install them. If you're looking for the brightest output then go with HID; if you want something brighter then stock with better color then these LED's do the trick nicely.

As @Mark_ answered, no aftermarket kit/retrofit is going to be considered to be "street legal." The nice thing about these bulbs is that they are closer in lumens to stock, do a nice job replicating the beam pattern, and have a "whiter" color then the previous iteration.

I've seen posts about the dispersion patterns being different since the stock housing is designed for a halogen bulb. Is there by chance a comparison of the stock/halogen vs. LED kit vs. HID kit?

Hey Steve,

Not to nit pic or anything... but if you look at those two low beam pics closely :
- The cutoff is nice and crisp on that headlight system, so we don't see much beyond it (that's good).
- Look at the tree on the right : pic #1 the vehicule is further back than in pic #2.
- The aim with the LEDs on low beam looks a little high to me...

Because the vehicule is 15-20 feet further down the street in pic #2 with the LEDs, we see all that stuff directly ahead we can't see in pic #1. I just wonder how things would look with the H4s if the pic had been taken from the exact same spot...

Nice pattern with the LEDs though, not too much bleeding up in that specific application at least. Wish we had someone with a Cherokee and those Extreme LEDs, with pics before and after...

Hi,

It's definitely not "perfect", but it's the best I've seen with a plug+play H4 LED bulb -- way better then an HID kit, or LED kit I've seen (especially in a reflective headlight).

Hey Steve,

You bring up some interesting points :

- Not perfect. Yep, nothing is. I mentionned it because the pic with LEDs gives it an unfair visual advantage (closer to the end of the street, with possibly a higher aim than the shot with halogens).

- You said way better than an HID kit "(especially in a reflective headlight)". That needs a little clarification I think, especially here on a Cherokee forum...
> Cherokees have projectors, not reflectors. Xenon bulbs (HID bulbs) have never done well in reflective headlamps : beam can be all over the place and lots of bleeding up = glare, which can dangerous (at worst) or a nuisance (at best).

We've often read from you guys that the kit with the best light output is HID. I'll suppose that was meant specifically for the projector setup on the Cherokees. Or maybe your extreme LED kits have evolved so much they now surpass your HID kits ?
We see the Germans coming out with fantastic adaptive LED headlights now and that's where the future seems to be. If those systems just weren't so darn expensive... and legal in North America (they aren't yet because of ridiculously old legislation).

So I guess I'm just asking if, for halogen Cherokees, you still think your HID kit yields superior light output, and a better beam, or are these newer LED kits better.

Thanks..

Hi, @Mark_:

I apologize for any confusion.

I was indicating that our H4 LED headlight kit seems to do a better job replicating a halogen pattern in reflective headlights then an h4 HID kit in the same headlight housings.

In the Cherokee halogen projector housings, we still recommend going with an HID kit for the most light output. The beam pattern is basically the same given the sharp halogen cut off.

@abjbrtd - The 2016 is a little more sensitive then the 2015. I would suggest going with an HID kit as all you would need is our PWM module (no additional resistors to simulate load). We've had customers install our LED kit in 2015 and 16 with no resistors, but I have had one or 2 occurances where the vehicle threw a code (2016 with LED NOT HID).
