Everything You Need to Know About Jeep Halo Lights
If you're looking for information about brand new Jeep halo lights, you've come to the right place. Our Jeep halo light collection, particularly Jeep Wrangler halo headlights, are some of our top sellers, and we want to make sure that you're fully informed before you buy. We source our halo products from the best manufacturers in the business, and we list them at amazing prices. Read on to learn all about halo lighting technology, choosing your Jeep halo lights, halo installation, and more.
Before You Buy Your Jeep Halo Lights
Halo Lighting Technology
Your first step in picking out your Jeep halo lights will be to go to your make and model page to see what's available to you. You can do this by clicking in the orange bar in the header and making your selections. Most Jeep models offer you an option of both LED lighting products and Plasma lighting products. Both of these lighting types offer you different advantages, so if you're not already familiar with the benefits of each, you'll want to read up first.
Neither of these lighting types was used in the original halo ring. Halos were invented at the beginning of the '00s by BMW and used CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lighting) technology. When people saw this new look, it caught on like wildfire and has continued growing in popularity. Halo rings have come a long way since they first started, and CCFLs are no longer available, having been retired when newer and better lighting types came into play.
The first of these is LED (light emitting diode) lighting - the one that pushed CCFLs into retirement. LEDs have distinct advantages over CCFL rings, including remote controllability and programmable color changing and lighting effects. This unique color changing ability, that only LED halos are capable of, comes from their make up of multiple small bulbs ringed together to emit one beam. LED halo lights also last longer than CCFLs at 60,000 hours. However, they do have a drawback that is considered significant by some drivers: where CCFLs invented the halo look with their smooth glowing beams, the look of LEDs is very different. Because each bulb lights up individually along the halo ring, it is possible to see the spaces in between the bulbs. This means that the beam is not smooth, like classic halo beams. Instead, the beam is fractioned. The majority of our Jeep products, including Jeep Wrangler halo headlights for sale, use LED lighting.
LEDs are not the most recent halo lighting technology. Plasmas came next. While they are not able to change colors, these angel eye rings are still remote controllable and last even longer than both LED rings and CCFL rings at 100,000 hours. What some would consider their greatest advantage is their appearance. Plasma halo rings give off the same kind of even and smooth glow that CCFLs did, resurrecting the classic look that would otherwise have disappeared with the retirement of CCFLs.
Whichever lighting type you choose, your Jeep halo lights will be easy to control and ultra bright. Unlike CCFL rings, which were only effective during the night, LED and Plasma Jeep halo lights are bright enough to show up and attract attention day or night.
These lighting technologies are also used in other products. Most Jeep models also offer LED or Plasma Jeep halo fog lights. And halo headlight and fog light rings are not your only lighting options for your Jeep. LED lighting is also used in wheel lights, demon eyes kits, and rock lights.
Jeep Halo Light Manufacturers
Our Jeep halo lights are manufactured by Oracle Lighting™ or LED Concepts™. If you're even remotely familiar with the auto lighting industry, you've most likely heard of at least one of these top brand names.
LED Concepts™ hasn't been in business for that long, having opened their doors in 2013. That didn't stop them from growing at an incredible pace. In 2017, their success attracted the attention of a larger company that absorbed LED Concepts™, giving them access to more resources that they are using to continue to improve their products. As their name suggests, this company specializes in LED products. Their signature technology, Profile Prism, is used in their color changing LED halo headlight and fog light rings.
Oracle Lighting™ has been making auto lighting accessories since 1999. This company makes halo headlight rings for a huge range of makes, models, and years, offering single color LED and Plasma rings and color changing halo rings with their colorSHIFT technology. Oracle Lighting™ is a trusted company, and we highly recommend this brand for any of your aftermarket lighting needs.
Jeep Halo Light Kit Vs. Assemblies
We offer you the choice of a halo kit or halo assemblies for just about every Jeep model, with the Compass being the exception. If your Jeep's model is one of the others, then you'll need to weigh your options and decide if you want to choose a Jeep halo light kit or full assemblies. If you're not sure which to go for, read on to see which traits are right for you.
Halo kits have two big benefits, with the first being that they are cost effective. Kits are significantly cheaper than pre-assembled products. When you receive your kit, you will need to open your assemblies and install the rings. While this process isn't as difficult as it may sound, you'll still need to put in some of your own time and effort or find a local mechanic or mod shop and pay them to do it for you. Kits also ship out quickly. After your order for a Jeep halo light kit has gone to processing, it will typically take about 2-3 business days before your order ships out and you get your tracking information.
If you order a pre-assembled Jeep halo light product, while it will arrive to you with the halo rings already installed, you'll need to put in a little more effort ahead of time. Pre-assembled products are custom orders that require you to send in a photo of your vehicle so we can ensure that the assemblies you get will be a perfect fit for your Jeep. Then, once the order goes into processing with Oracle Lighting™, it will take about 12-15 days for your assemblies to be prepared before they can ship out. Once you have received them and tested them out, the rest is easy! The largest difference between assemblies and kits is that assemblies have a higher price point. Take a look at which products are available to you and decide which format will be prefferable to you.
It's Time to Choose Your Jeep Halo Lights
Jeep Halo Lights at NFC Performance
As you've already read, we source our Jeep halo light products from the best manufacturers, and we cover six different Jeep models. If the reputation of our products and the excellent warranties backing them haven't convinced you to buy from us, consider these three additional reasons:
- Our Excellent Customer Service. If you have questions about our products, our site, placing an order, or an existing order, give us a call or send us an email. Our customer service staff are in the office Monday - Friday, ready to get you the information you need in a friendly and timely manner. We'll be in contact with you for each step of your order, providing confirmation when you place it, requesting a photo from you if you have made a custom order, and providing you with tracking information for your package when it is available.

Complete Your Order
Now that you know all the benefits of shopping with us and once you have selected your lighting type and halo format, there are still a couple more decisions to make before you go to check out: your Jeep halo lights color option and remote control.
As you already know, Plasma halo rings are not capable of changing colors, so if you've selected a Plasma Jeep halo light kit, you'll be choosing one of four colors: white, red, green, or blue. If you opt for a single color LED kit, you'll choose from five or six colors, depending on your Jeep's make. Whether you go for a single color or color changing option, think about the laws in your area ahead of time. It is against the law to turn on your red or blue halos while driving on the road, because these colors are reserved for emergency vehicles only. Laws can vary, so make sure you double check.
If you already have a compatible remote control, you might not need to purchase another one (depending on whether your remote is single channel or dual channel). If you don't already have one, you will definitely need to select a remote to add to your order before you check out. Once you have everything you want and need in your cart, go to checkout and finalize your order.
Receiving Your Jeep Halo Lights
Test Them Out
After we send you your tracking information, keep an eye on it, because you will want to get your hands on your halos as soon as possible, and not just because you'll be excited to have them. You will need to inspect and bench test your Jeep halo lights within 24 hours of receiving them.
First, open the packaging and take a look at your product. Do you see any damage that happened during shipping? Are there any other problems? If there is something wrong with your halos, contact us at NFC Performance as soon as possible. Oracle Lighting™ and LED Concepts™ both have a rule: they must be notified of damage within 24 hours of delivery in order to replace the product at no cost to you.
If everything is visibly fine, you will still need to test out the product by running a bench test - don't procrastinate. Again, if you hook up your halos and they aren't working properly, you must notify us immediately. You should also make sure to hold onto the damaged product and the packaging - don't throw anything away.
Jeep Halo Headlights Installation
Once you're sure your halos are in perfect working condition, it's time to install them. If you chose assemblies instead of a kit or if you're having someone install your kit for you, congratulations - you can skip this step.
If you did opt for a kit and you've never installed a set of halos before, the process may not be as difficult as you'd think. The kit will arrive to you with a complete set of instructions that you can follow. All the wires you need will arrive with your halo rings. You will need some tools and basic knowledge of how to use them. Oracle Lighting™ has also made videos that you can watch to help you through the process. As an example, take a look at the video below where an expert from Oracle™ shows you how to perform a Jeep Wrangler halo headlights installation.
Get Out on the Road
Now that you've got your Jeep halo lights properly installed, it's time to take them out and show them off. Just remember our warning before about street legal colors - if you have your red or blue halos on while you're out on the road, you will be ticketed, and we'd much prefer you to have a 100% positive experience.
