And with the ralliart bonnet the pricing is so much and I also need to replace the front bar aswell so thinking maybe just leaving it stock for now..


I have these headlights, bought them from JDM Accessories a while back. They're a partner for CT Auto, and this housing will fit all CJ-CF models so you'll be fine. Price isn't so competitive, yes they are pricey but they're priced the same on aliexpress and other wholesaler sites. DRL is not so bright during the day, nowhere near as bright as shown on photos on the website but the LED chips are definitely upgradable. You can pay with Afterpay on CT Auto or zipPay on JDM Accessories site if you don't feel like blowing all your money on them at once, that's what I did anyway haha.

They come with white halogen globes which put out a decent beam, but a ballast is recommended if you're after a strong wide beam. These also have the blue/purple tinge you see on some late model Audi/Mercedes, you may have seen cars in rear view mirror with the projector reflection shining blue/purple, meaning it's a high quality projector.
However, if you don't want to spend money and fit a ballast, you can always use LED bulbs which produce the same effect as HID but just not as a strong beam.
I can send you a link to one that I bought from Wish if needed,~ 55w waterproof ballast, pretty decent quality for the price of $35, HID globes included too.

As with the Evo hood, it's a direct fit meaning no special modifications which is always nice. Evo genuine front bumper and rear bumper need small modification to fit, aftermarket bumper needs no modification. You can find them on wholesaler sites, the aftermarket ones shipped from China don't have the rear bumper back bulging out due to the Lancer not being widebody like the Evo.

Here's what I mean:

Aftermarket chinese/taiwan bumper no bulge

Awesome thanks!!!

In my headlights I replaced the parker lights with some LEDs and at idle they some times flicker, which is annoying. But my DRLs which are different from yours don't, or not that I've noticed.

Hahaha, dat stock quality! I’m sure they do, I remember talking about it with the bloke at Ctautoparts, but I didn’t go that route due to expense
