Sylvania Silverstar Headlights

Article written by Moab Man

Date Added: 06/05/2006

Tired of the dim yellow stock headlights? Want a lighting upgrade similar to HID's but don't have the cash? Check out these headlights, not brand new to the market but often overlooked.

Factory halogen lights are just ok. They are effective and work, but dim and yellow. If you have had the experience of sitting behind some HID lights, showing up in many cars today, the thought must have crossed your mind to put them in your rig. A short trip to the auto parts store will soon put an end to your thoughts of having HID's when the over $600 conversion price tag hits you, not including all the necessary wiring needed.

Alas, Sylvania comes to the rescue with their intensely white, 100% street legal, Silverstar line. These lights are still halogen but shine much brighter and whiter than standard halogen lights.

Standard automotive halogen headlights burn at 3200 *Kelvin while standard HID's burn at 4100K. Sylvania Silverstar's come in at 4000K making them a real close second in light output, but costing mere pennies compared to HID's. Replacement lights for Barney, our MOABJEEPER TJ, cost $25-$30 (per light) through our local Auto Zone parts store.

Silverstar's headlights are direct replacements for both sealed beam and capsules with the lineup being expanded to cover many applications.

Installing Sylvania Silverstar's on our TJ required a T15 torque screwdriver. A torque bit will not work.

Remove the chrome headlight bezel from the grill.

Remove light retaining ring.
Pull the light forward from its seating cup and unplug the electrical plug.
Now install your Sylvania Silverstar headlight in reverse order.

Final Thoughts

Barney now has lighting nearly as bright as HID's, no rewiring, and the wallet is lighter by only $50-$55.

So if you are looking to replace a burnt out headlight or you are just looking for improved lighting; check out the Sylvania Silverstar's, you won't be disappointed.
