Question Headlamp Upgrade to Crystal Syle Bezel

Looking to do an upgrade from the NAS spec 97 D90 headlamp to a newer design. Light output does not need to be amazing. I would simply like to upgrade the older style lamps to a newer style (flat, crystal style) lamp without rewiring or reworking. Just a simple, buy, swap and go approach. Any leads guys!

FYI....this is going on a 97 NAS D90 would prefer a US source so I can get them in hand quickly. Not looking for ultra performance just a nice looking cleaner (newer style) upgrade.

So any jeep 7" light will be a drop in plug and play with the correct wiring and harness installed?

If a jeep has a H4 bulb it should be the same.

If you are considering running higher wattage bulbs than standard you should really look to use a headlight relay. The headlights are switched through the stalk by the steering wheel and these burn out regularly and especially if you run higher wattage bulbs.

You should look at a relay regardless. The voltage loss with stock bulbs is quite bad.
