Light Cover Installation
 
So I headed up to help out on a Jeep CJ-5 with putting some bumpers on and saw the opportunity to snap some shots of a light cover upgrade that will help to protect your headlights from debris kicking up and cracking the lenses and eventually leading to failure if water is encountered.
 
 
I think that this upgrade will help with some types of debris, but shouldn't be counted on to stop all debris. Sticks and mud deflection will be the main purpose of putting these on. It will help somewhat, but shouldn't be counted on to prevent every and all type of damage.
 
 
So installation is a snap with just having to take off the trim ring and then install the covers over the headlight lenses. Once this is done, the trim rings are put back on and the upgrade is complete.
 
Lessons Learned the Hard Way
 
So, my lessons learned here would have to be that if you are going to the trouble to put these on, you might as well change the headlights. It is cheap insurance for having to replace these down the road. Also something to consider would be to upgrade the lights to a H4 conversion. This is an expensive option, but does offer quite a bit more light on and off the road.
 
Conclusions
 
This is a pretty simple installation that will help to protect the headlights somewhat from debris kicking up on the trail. It is relatively inexpensive and will help deflect some items from hitting your headlights plus it is a nice clean look to the Jeep.
