Should just be a couple torx screws I'm surprised you go the light out with out removing it. Unless I'm talking about the completely wrong thing.

the two black arrows point to the two that adjust the angle of the light the red arrow is to the screw you cant adjust at the top.

Hm... that much work for these, I wonder how these compare to a JW speaker or HID projectors ._.

Anyways, how did you manage to take out the light bracket? or is the cut at the bottom the solution?

Don't want to be a d!ck, but you may as well have put candles in your headlights. Those won't illuminate a damn thing. they just look good, not to mention the first cop you pass is pulling you over.

They don't. I can tell just by the photo he posted that hit the wall that they put out the same light as my LED reverse bulbs. Light is completely scattered. The thing that sucks is, it seems like he cut the stock buckets, and now can't go back to any other solution.

I agree with NFRs. The pic shown on the wall looks like there is no cutoff? Just alot of scattered light. Is that on bright? What do the low beams look like? Were these intended as headlights?

Sorry guys they are not made to be headlights they are simply 7" round offroad led lights that I used. There is no High/Low beam just bright as hell. Lowerumble I have a small side business where I sale the lights if you want info on them just send me a PM and we will talk about the lights.

No high beam or low beam = illegal unless off road, not to mention cutoff.

These would be cool lights to have as some spots on a big truck bumper though, they look nice.

Sorry man, that's just a bad idea all around. Now you're totally illegal and not the right throw for headlights.

Your jeep, your choice. But why would you do that? Why not just mount them on A pillar or bumper for some cool off road lights? I just don't get it...
