IPF 920H4 Jeep JK Wrangler Headlights
Installation Write-Up & Testing


As much as I absolutely love my Jeep JK Wrangler, I have to say that there’s one thing that has always bugged me and for whatever it’s worth, it’s something that bugs pretty much everyone else I know who owns a JK too. In a word, the factory headlights are simply TERRIBLE. While they appear to be very shiney, the actual beam they put out is very yellow and narrow and more times than not, I feel as though they aren’t even on. In fact, most people I know insist that they have to run their fog lights at night in order for them to see where they’re going.Fortunately for us, IPF has finally come out with a brand new, plug-n-play 920H4 replacement set of headlights and after testing them out, I can tell you that the difference is huge! First and foremost, the quality of light is significantly whiter than stock and thanks to the new lens design, they illuminate a much greater and even spread across the road.

Being that the IPF 920H4 headlights are plug-n-play, installation is super easy, can be done in minutes, requires no additional wiring harnesses or ballasts and because of all this, are very affordable. To see what all is involved to get these awesome headlights on your Jeep, check out the write-up below.

What you will need


• Torx T-15 Driver
• 10mm Wrench
• Phillips Screwdriver
• Flathead Screwdriver
   

Instructions


The IPF 920H4 headlights that I got were prototypes and so, there was no box for them. However, this is pretty much everything that you will get and all that you need.
1. Pop open your Jeep JK Wrangler’s hood and then, using a 10mm wrench, disconnect the negative battery lead. 2. Look behind your Jeep JK Wrangler’s front grille, locate the wiring harness attached to the indicator lights and unlock the plug by sliding out the red tab as shown in this pic. 3. Press the release tab on the end of the wiring harness plug and then pull it out.
4. Using a small flathead screwdriver, unlock the retaining tabs on top of your Jeep JK Wrangler’s grill by lifting up the pin in the center as shown in this pic. 5. If you have an older Jeep JK Wrangler, you will need to loosen the plastic retaining screws using a phillips screwdriver. 6. Once the retaining tabs have been unlocked or unscrewed, use a flathead screwdriver to pry up the back side of the grill just enough to pop them out.
7. Carefully pull on your Jeep JK Wrangler’s grille until it breaks free of the retaining clips. 8. Using a Torx T-15 driver, remove the 4 screws securing your Jeep JK Wrangler’s headlights in place. 9. Pull the headlight out a bit, locate the wiring harness attached to the back of it and then unlock the plug by sliding out the red tab as shown in this pic.
10. Press the release tab on the end of the wiring harness plug and then pull it out. 11. Separate the retaining ring from the factory headlight housing as shown. 12. Take your new IPF 920H4 headlight and plug its pigtail into the wiring harness on your Jeep JK Wrangler.
13. The new IPF 920H4 headlight housing is indexed with tabs to give you a keyed fit on your Jeep JK Wrangler. Make sure that these tab are in their appropriate slot before installing the retaining ring. 14. Place the factory retaining ring over the IPF 920H4 headlight and align it so that all the tabs line up with the appropriate mounting holes. 15. Secure the retaining ring and IPF 920H4 headlights in place using the factory bolts. A Torx T-15 driver will be needed for this job.
16. Reinstall your Jeep JK Wrangler’s front grille, secure it in place using the factory retaining tabs or screws, reconnect your battery lead and test out your new IPF 920H4 headlights.

Before & After Shots


This first photo is a side-by-side comparison shot of the IPF 920H4 (passenger side) and a factory headlight (driver side). Please note that the photo was purposefully taken dark so that you can see the color difference between the two. As you will see, the IPF is much whiter.
This is a shot of the driver side factory headlight on low beam from about 10-12 ft. from my garage door just to give you a general beam intensity and spread of it.
Now this is a shot of the passenger side headlight on low beam with the new IPF 920H4.
This is a shot of the driver side factory headlight on highbeam beam.
Now, a shot of the passenger side IPF headlight on high beam.

As I said, this is a super easy install! Make sure to check the positioning of your new headlights and make necessary adjustments as needed.Headlight Adjustment Write-Up

  1. Do you have any pics of actual road light? I am curious as to see distance comparison.

    Also can head light guards still fit over?

  2. The link goes to Northridge 4×4. They don’t have the bulbs listed for sale on their site. I looked in many different ways. Just fyi.

  3. i have not had a chance to take any pics on the road yet but i’ll try to do something once it stops raining here. as far as light covers go, these new lights should not effect whether or not you can mount them but, they are flatter than the factory lights and so they may look funny.

    regarding legality in CA, there should be no reason why they would not be legal here but, i will talk to a couple of friends i have that are cops and verify this.

    these headlights come complete with bulbs and housing and will not be available until jan.

  4. Don’t wait until it stops raining to take the on-road pictures. I find the Jeep lighting at its worse when the road is wet.

    Thanks!

  5. These look awesome!!

    But are they the White or Blue bulbs???

    There seems to be an option on the northridge site but it doesnt say which ones these are.

  6. I prefer this option to the pricier Cibie upgrade just out of cost effectiveness, however you didn’t mention how you aimed the headlights or what the procedure was for that?

  7. European JK should spend their money on other upgrades. Not only do they lack the aux lights. These ipf’s yield less light than the original JK headlights. I guess they use better oem lights in Europe. To bad. I do like the IPF products

  8. I have to say these are the best headlights I have used on my JK. I had a set of Delta’s and they were not good (I’m being nice). I have had a lot of issues with the included wire harness. Have there been other reports of this?

  9. This is one of the best upgrades for the money you can make to your Jeep. No installation or operational issues at all. Huge improvement over stock.

  10. Nice write up. Seems like a good deal. I had a question though. In your write up it says that there’s no need for additional or replacement wiring harnesses, but the product description at Northridge says it come with an H13-H4 conversion harness. What’s that and will i actually need it?

  11. I installed these about a year and a half ago. They worked great until recently when both low beams burned out within a few days of each other. Anybody else have any issues with their bulbs?

  12. If you want to improve the output of these lights by 100% and reduce the load on your Jeeps inadequate wiring you should install a proper Heavy Duty wiring harness. To say you don’t need one is not exactly true.
