The link is not working - 404 Error. How much are these? I purchased my Truck-Lite's through you guys and want these adapters, as the flicker drives me crazy knowing that I could be damaging the lights running unsteady voltage through them. Thanks!

So for us poor saps who purchased these lights before they came with this module are we SOL and expected to pony up an extra $100 to make things work that were supposed to be "plug and play"?

I understand the frustration but it is $60 not $100 and it was pretty clear with any research at all on these that you may get flicker due to the voltage differences. If you can deal with the flicker you don't have to buy them so it's really your choice.

The h4-h13 Harness that you got included in your lights cost around 18$ each . With this new harness you don't need those anymore .

I run the trucklights with the standard h4-h13 harness not the new anti flicker harness and they work just fine. The flickering is so minor that it is not a big deal.

SO many people complained about the harness that truck lite came out with a solution. Now people are complaining that the solution is not free.....

The issue is, that the headlights should not flicker. The adapter harness does nothing to eliminate flicker. All it does is provide the proper plug end to the lights from the Jeep plug. Flickering will shorten the life of the lights due to the voltage flux. Truck-Lite should issue a recall and fix the problem. We're not asking for a freebie, but a few short pieces of wire, capacitors and diodes and some plugs don't cost $60, nor does it cost $10 to ship them.

The thing you're missing is these were not designed for Wranglers. They are advertised by TruckLite as a 7" round LED headlamp. They happen to fit the wrangler which is awesome but TL has never called these plug and play. Some 4x4 shops may advertise them this way but it is not true to the letter. Asking for a recall on an item that wasn't designed specifically for a vehicle is never going to happen nor should it. It is an aftermarket item that happens to work in a Wrangler with an adapter. I give them kudos for listening the Wrangler world and coming up with a solid fix for the flickering when it would have just as easy to say sorry it's not our problem.

Dude. If you upgraded to some $400 lights what's the deal with paying for a harness to make said multi-use lights work on your rig? No wonder your rig looks stock

Ahhh maybe $60 American but I was quoted $95 by NorthRidge4x4.ca. I am absolutely certain I've seen these lights marketed in magazines as plug and play, which is why I bought them.

Do these also stop flickering on the JW Speaker 8700 evolution headlights?

Alright would you sell them to me as an owner of JW Speaker headlights with expectations that they would work? If they are not going to work, than I won't order. I just kinda need to know before I place my order. I think this is a fair question.
Thanks!
