What I am worried about is accumulation built up on the lens, though I do park inside for half the day, the other half, will be outside for at least 10 hours.

Do you notice any accumulation? thanks

No more then with stock lights. I park out side most of the time and on work days it sits out for over 12 hours. When I come home in a snow storm which is fairly often the bottom halves of the lenses will be covered with snow or frost but the top halves will be clear. The top halves are the low beams and in the heavy snow I am not running high beams so my guess is if you could run high beams in the heavy snow the bottom halves would be clear too.

WOW! is right! I got mine installed a couple days ago and finally got a chance to run 'em at night. I can't believe the difference they make on my back country roads. They're almost - too bright... Road signs were popping like crazy and because of the wide beam pattern, I could practically read them while I was next to them! I am really impressed with these lights!

thanks for the update jad , I may have to run these lights, will determine when I get my jeep and see for myself how bad the stockers are.

Exact same experience for me. Had them in for a week now. Amazing on dark country roads.

Have the X pattern but no flicker. The X pattern is not noticeable to me. I have to look for it to see it.

Definitely worth the money in my opinion.

I could be wrong but I have not seen any aftermarket HID or Projector HID headlights that are DOT approved.
DOT APPROVED:
Inspected by the Department of Transportation and Approved to be safe to install in your vehicle.

This means that a truly DOT Approved HID Bulb or HID or LED Kit is not going to cause dammage to your vehicle. It does NOT mean that it is street legal.

The LED headlights itself when looking at them directly do not seem to flicker.

If the slight flicker does bother anyone...they do make the TLG LED Headlight Harness that fixes that issue on both Truck-Lite and JW Speaker.
For the price of Truck-Lite and JW Speaker, I will expect it's flicker-free either built-in the harness or include one for free. How much can a harness cost them?

I think there is more involvement than just building a harness. I read somewhere that they are working on one, also since it will be sold with the lights in the future (my speculation) that they might have to get dot approval with the harness. Like I mentioned, purely my speculation.

Would be nice to get the harness. How easy are these to adjust? I think the stock ones have a couple of screws to adjust the beam. Speaking of that, I need to adjust the beams and make them lower. After my lift, the front is is so high that people think my high beams are on.

they adjust the same as stock ie up and down via a torx screw. YOu can manually manipulate the horizontal adjustment using a electrical tape to shim them. It is easy to do and gets rid of the X pattern. Takes a little effort to get them aimed perfectly but once they are you will wonder how you ever drove without them.

as far as the flickering goes mine is non existant. Not sure why some have it and some don't. I believe they all ship with the adaptor now so it is stricktly plug and play.

I did mine myself. Having them perfectly aligned takes some effort but well worth it. Vertical adjustment is easy horizontal is more difficult, but necessary to get rid of the beams crossing.

Groovy. I do most work myself but will just take this to the shop for adjustment. Too much hassle for me.

good luck finding a shop that will get your horizontal adjustment correct. Pretty much has to be done in the dark and there is no adjustment screw for horizontal only vertical. I used electrical tape to make a shim to adjust my horizontal and it has worked perfect for the last 6000 miles. I say take the time to do it yourself. The truck lites are expensive but when adjusted properly are incredible. I have read comments by people who have complained they did not work that great but I am betting it is because they did not take the time to adjust both vert and horz

This the one?
Truck-Lite 7'' Round LED Headlamp, Complex Reflector Optics Design (Single Unit) Phase 7 27270C

If so, I'm buying now as that is cheaper than I've seen. Mind you I haven't looked around to heavily.

That would be the correct lite but only a single unit. You'll want the listing that includes both lites as I'm sure you'd like two of them.
