How To Properly Adjust Your New Jeep Headlights

Adjusting your Jeep headlights is an important step in ensuring that you have optimal visibility while driving at night. Here are the steps to correctly adjust your Jeep headlights:

  1. Park your Jeep on a level surface and turn on the headlights.
  2. Locate the adjustment screws on the back of the headlight assembly. These are typically located on the top and bottom of the assembly.
  3. Use a small flathead screwdriver to turn the adjustment screws. The top screw controls the vertical alignment of the headlight beam and the bottom screw controls the horizontal alignment.
  4. Turn the top screw clockwise to raise the beam and counterclockwise to lower it. Turn the bottom screw clockwise to move the beam to the right and counterclockwise to move it to the left.
  5. Have a friend or family member stand in front of the Jeep while you make the adjustments. They should hold a piece of cardboard or another flat surface at the same height as the headlights. This will help you to see where the beams are hitting and make any necessary adjustments.
  6. Repeat the process for the other headlight.
  7. Once both headlights are adjusted, take your Jeep for a test drive at night to ensure that the beams are correctly aligned.

It is important to note that it is illegal to have excessively high headlights in most states and countries, and that can cause a safety hazard to other drivers as well as pedestrians. It is also important to regularly check and adjust your headlights as part of your regular vehicle maintenance. By following these steps, you can ensure that your Jeep headlights are correctly adjusted, providing you with optimal visibility while driving at night.
