JW Speaker evolution headlights and fog lights

They are on schedule for delivery tomorrow...

Anyone running the JW Speaker lights? If you are running these lights, any feedback would be great...likes? dislikes? Any issues with these lights flickering?

Thanks!

Lots of threads already with info. Best suggestion is to read them, running a direct harness will stop the flickering.

As soon as you get them installed let us know how you like them. I'm about to pull the trigger on both. Where did you purchase them from?

Discount fleet supply..Georgia..they arrived last night and I may mount them up this Sat, not sure if the fogs need additional mounting brackets or will slip into existing mounts on my AEV bumper.

I have the JW's and absolutely love 'em. Installation was very easy. My only issue was one wiring harness wire was loose.

The difference between the JW and stock lights is incredible. It's like going from an old miners helmet light to a spot light! My only disappointment is with the high beams. There really isn't a significant difference when you switch to the "brights."

As far as the flicker, it is there but rarely do I notice it and I'm the type of person who usually is bothered by flicker. Whether it is fluorescent or LED flicker it drives me nuts, but these lights are not bad. I only notice it when the engine is idling and the lights are shining on a bright white surface. Even then it isn't too bad IMO.

I ordered the anti flicker harness from headlight revolution for my new JWs, I have read that the flickering may reduce the life of the JW Speaker 8700's which makes sense if you think about it. Also ordered the plug and play harness for my 6145 JW fog lights. Should arrive Friday.


Cheers!

Personally after installing them, they are not worth the cost. The high beams are awful, my expectations are that the high beams would truly flood the area. They do not.

Mine arrive today. Not sure when I'll install. Personally I don't care about the hi beams. Just wanted better lights that didn't require a special harness. Love my rally lights kit but the OCD in me hates the extra wires and relays under the hood.
