How To Adjust Your Jeeps Headlights

Steps to Adjust Your Jeep's Headlights

My new Auxbeam headlights at night

Now that my new LED headlights are installed, it is time to make sure they are aligned and aimed properly. A lot of folks say it's best to go to a professional to do this. But I wanted to try it myself because it does not seem that hard. So here is what I did.


Find a flat location, at least 35 feet. I had to use the inside garage wall since my driveway is not flat and skews the test.

Pull Jeep as close to the wall as possible. I decided to use my green screen in the garage

With tape, put two crosses on the wall that correspond with the vertical and horizontal center lines of both headlights. Mine measured 42 inches tall. 

Marking for headlight adjustment


Move the Jeep back 25 feet from the wall, keeping the Jeep straight with the crosses on the wall.


Examine the pattern. The concentrated light beam should be in the lower right section of the crosses.

Using the torx 15 screw adjust the vertical screw. I made several turns on mine before the lights moved to the correct spot.

The last step will be to hit the road in the neighborhood to test out to make sure I won't be blinding anyone.

Headlight housing

There is a torx screw in the plastic headlight housing unit that you turn for vertical adjustment.

Also in this housing unit in the inner ring is a hex bolt that you turn for horizontal adjustment.

The hex bolt is on the side of the housing unit closest to the Wrangler's grille. The torx screw on the opposite side.
