Oracle Colorshift Halo Rings

I've read over several threads concerning these halo rings, and I think a lot of people are not realizing what they really are. I just purchased a set of the new Colorshift 2.0 rings by Oracle, and thought I'd throw this out there to help others decide on them or not. First off, my 07 Rubicon JK is lifted 6", on 37's, gussetted & sleeved front axle, high steer kit, JKS steering sector shaft brace, adjustable track bars front & rear, ARB diff covers, aftermarket bumpers, stinger, Warn Powerplant HP winch, Hella Rallye 4000's on the windshield, Warn 650 driving lights on the bumper, Smittybilt XRC rear corner guard armor and front fenders, Rock Krawler 1/4" thick lower front control arm mounts, EVO Rock Star rear skids & control arm mounts, etc..etc...and I wheel the heck out of it, sling mud in it with the doors off, and I break it at times. I just had to replace a front axle shaft a week ago. That being said, I like it to look good and like to show it off when it's cleaned up. It does get looks and comments, so I saw these halos, and had to have them. They DO NOT help you see better at night, they're not a headlight 'upgrade', they are illegal on the road, unless you use the white color as a daytime running lamp (which is the good thing with the colorshift kit, you can choose ANY color), and they're basically just for looks and showing off. So to all the people on the other threads rambling on how they're illegal, and useless, etc...I'd think most people would know not to use them on the road, to only use them to draw a crowd in a parking lot, or at a show, and the term useless is not correct, a Jeep is meant to be customized and played in, played with, to ENJOY, and if making it 'cool' in your eyes involves these halo rings, then that's not useless at all! I just ordered my kit last night, and can't wait to get it. Guess we'll see how hard it is to get a set of factory headlight lenses to separate from the reflector/body. I'll let you know if I have any luck.

Thanks! I'm not really calling anyone out or anything, I just think that a lot of people who see or want them, may think they're a lighting upgrade for the crap factory headlights, which they're not, and then the ones who don't get into that kind of thing, just try to say every negative thing they can about them. It's all about personalization, IMO.

I compleyly understand, just agreeing and showing some support I know how those things go over around here so when I saw your post it struck a chord with me.

Thanks guys, and I will post pics here when I get them installed....IF I get them. Ha Ha. Maybe a YouTube link or something, those things are awesome in action. The colorshift ones have a programmable control box, and remote control. If they work like they're supposed to, I'll add the driving light rings as well. This controller can run several, it's like 15 amp, and we know anything LED wont get close to that.

While not my personal preference for a Jeep, the colorshift halos are awesome. I had them in the headlights on my custom Challenger and they were the talk of every car show and parking lot. While I could independently control them via remote they were also wired to come on when my vehicle was in park so they got a ton of attention everywhere!!!

Cracking the headlight housings either goes really well or turns into a pain depending on how much sealant was applied to them at the factory and no two sets are alike. Be sure you seal them well or they will fill up within condensation and destroy the halo rings in an instant!!!

And check you local laws...in most states you can run on the road with them either in the white or amber mode and NOT be in violation. At minimum you can run them in the white mode without any issues as many new Audi's, Beamers, Chryslers have very similar led rings or bands direct from the factory and they are NOT against the law to run on the road.

I too bought the ColorShift and they bring a whole new avenue to the boring light kits out there. My 2007 Wrangler is not a murder and I use it only on beautiful day days. Recently I ran it in the Memorial Day Parade Jeps4Vets. They had a little competition and mine came in hands down the best in show. I hear the nasty things guys say like Gay lows but I but I see the crowds running up to my jeep right past all the rest. I love them and have no regrets. Its raining today otherwise I would he running the jeep halos a burning right now. I have them in the headlights and driving lights and I'll he ordering some for the other 4 lights soon as I get the time to install them.

I also installed the LED taillights today. Easy upgrade and much brighter reds and whites on the reverse circuit.
Thanks. I'm running out of things to install

I'm still a little confused. The colorshift is legal on road but only on white? If so I/m definitely investing in these headlights. Your opinion really helped me, thanks!

OP, that's a nice collection of mods on your Jeep!

I think the legality of the color halos is a state by state issue. Red seems to be obvious color that is illegal and maybe blue. Some cars have factory halos that are used as DRLs so I would be surprised if they are completely illegal anywhere.

Would these lights be okay for an 02? Or only JKs?

Thanks spinlock. I've been told by several members of law enforcement, that white was the only color legal to run on the road, because it's basically the same as the led daytime running lamps on lots of new vehicles. All the other colors have some sort of tie to other things. Red, fire or ambulance, blue, law enforcement, amber, you see on Highway Dept and wreckers, and the purple I've been told is used on some funeral vehicles (?) And as far as using them on an 02, if I'm not mistaken, TJ's had the sealed beam halogen lights, where when one would blow you remove the entire assembly and replace it, whereas the JK had plastic housings in which you replace the bulb only. If that's correct, then you cannot take a sealed beam headlight apart in order to put the Halo ring inside. You'd have to replace the headlight assemblies with ones that had removable bulbs, and plastic housings. I had to heat mine in the oven (per the instructions) in order to take them apart.

The colored rings aren't meant to be driven with anyways. I would believe they turn on separate from the headlight ?

Red, blue, or combinations of them are illegal - they are used by EMS/Fire/Police vehicles. According to the US DOT, front facing lights on a vehicle can be white or amber [it is why amber fog lights are fine to use].

If one has green, orange, purple, or any other color, save them for the trail.

I ordered Oracle reds Friday and am eagerly waiting arrival.

I figured they would be illegal on the street however in a video on the site the red "disappeared" when the headlights were on. Was that because the "white" headlight outshines or do you think they were wired separately?

I know you can wire them to the parks or give them their own power with a switch. I was gonna wire them with the parks but now I'm unsure. #confused
