Those were the first "major" (read: expensive) mod I did to the Jeep and it is SOOO worth it! When I ride in my wife's Liberty now, I think to myself, "how can she see anything"? Welcome to the club!

Its Brawler Lite with brawler bar and plate gusstes. Just installed the same on mine this week. Couldn't be any happier. Quality is top notch. Got it also from Northridge4x4.

Now i am debating with myseld whether i should get Truck-Lites. I just don't know how its going to look like with factory yellow fog lights. Cuz trucklites give out white light.

Cool. Its the best looking bumper for me. I got tons of compliments on it within this week .

In case you will be on the fence about to do or not to do finish through Northridge4x4, i want to share my exper. Cause the bumper comes in bare steel finish, I ordered a black powder coat finish with them. And the bumper came with a perfect finish to my surprise. The bumper was buried in a cardboard box with tons of paper for protection. Hope this gives you a better idea of what to do when you are ready ordering.

take the time to adjust them horizontally and you will not have the big X crossing pattern. Takes some work and time to adjust them but well worth it. You need to pull your grill park on a dark level street perferably in the fog if you are in an area that is foggy as that is where the X is most notable. Loosen up the retaining rings and manipulate the lenses horizontal to where the beams are best use electrical tape to shim the lenses so they stay in that position when the retaining brackets are tightened back up. I have used my truck lites on two different wranglers now and that is what works for me.

I have a TJ so does it have screws to adjust both ways? Which way do you turn them or do I just need to play with them? I am new to this so I don't know how to aim them properly.

best way to learn is to start messing with it and see what works. that is what I did when everybody said there was no way to adjust horizontal on JK's.

Northridge lights are $390 pair, harness $11 each, so if you buy separately, it is only $412...what do you get when you order the package for $419 that I am missing? Really want these lights now!

It sounds like the difference would be the anti flicker harness. You'd be getting the lights and the H4-H13 harness but not the anti flicker harness. Many say you don't need it anyway.

Anyone have a video on this install? Is it a straight forward upgrade? Looking at these or the SPEAKER lights as soon as i get my 2014 JK, if there is a video online showing this install it would be great. Thanks In Advance!

Just don't lose 3 screws like I did. A trip to Fastenal fixed me up though.

So does this latest anti-flicker harness truly solve 100% of ALL flicker problems or is there still some flickering in certain cases?

The anti flicker harnesses just plug into the factory wiring and then to the light. It's all plug and play.

Thanks. I guess for the small cost difference, it would be worth it to get the anti flicker harness combo deal.. This set up is much cheaper than the JW Speaker lites it seems for just slightly less performance?
