New KC LED Headlights For 07-14 JK

Received the Holiday edition of Quadratec the other day and noticed that the JK on the cover had some new headlights.

They are the KC HiLiTES 42321 Par 56 LED Headlamps. They look cool! They light up just like my Truck-Lite Phase 7's. Price is the same as the TL's.

$500 for headlamps is a tough pill to swallow...

x2, not sure I could ever make the jump for that price. I live in a fairly urban area so there are only a few times I realized the stock headlamps are crap and I don't do any night offroading. I am looking at some new bulbs and myabe the KC housings that run around $100 but $500 is way too much in my mind.

KCs do look just like the TruckLites and are DOT approved as well. TruckLites are still a bit cheaper than JW Speaker and worth it to me.

We have the IPF headlights with Phillips XPS2 bulbs on my wife's Jeep and they are pretty good for those on a budget, MUCH improved over OE.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were rebranded TruckLites

The design looks very similar. Not a fan of the thicker bar through the middle I must say

I have Trucklites and these KC lights look different in the reflector and the low/high beam divider.
