Installed my trucklites today, wow what a difference. As far as adjustment goes I marked my garage door with the beam of my oem lights and just matched up the led's cutoff, worked great.

I just put the duelly's in for my flood lights. Did not want to put the D2's there and pretty glad I didn't. The D2's went on the piller. The duelly's themselves put out a tremendous amount of light for the fog lights. The D2's on the piller are insane. My duelly's were spliced into the harness and come on with the regular flood light switch. The D2's were put on the spod. When the Ace pro rear bumper gets here, it will be getting 2 of the 6in duelly bars lights hooked up to the spod. Can't even imagine how much light there will be back there. I don't have any complaints on the duelly's. I will be changing out the head lights to either Truck lites or JW. Most likely the truck lites because of the price and the fact that I haven't seen much of a diff between the JW and truck lites, especially for the price.

If I can figure out how to get them from my phone to the computer, I will post them. I can take pics tomorrow from the house with the camera and post them up. Damn phone confuses the crap out of me.

Cheapest place I could find, Discount Fleet Supply. Use coupon code lifeisgood5 for a 5% discount. The total was $419 and some change with free shipping. That price is including the needed adapters to make them plug and play.

Here are some pics of mine with the duelly's. The fogs are bright. The pillar d2's are insane. You really can't see the reg head lights when going down a dark road. Just put the bumper on a couple of days ago. Now, if I could just get the ACE rear bumper I have been waiting 2 months for, I would be in great shape.

I've got them on my jeep and they are amazing. I bought the Northridge package that came with rigid duallies and honestly you can't even see the duallies over the high beams on these headlights. I've got my duallies angled out about 45 degrees to light up real wide off of the road for deer.

If you don't have these headlights, make them your next upgrade even if its your first upgrade. I finally feel safe driving a night.

Edit: For anyone interested in aux lighting I recommend wiring a switch to your high beams so it turns off all of your aux lights when you turn the high beams off.

Use a photo upload service like Shutterfly or Flickr. Their apps make it simpler to post pics on forums when mobile, or, to upload pics from your phone to your account on their site, copy image code and use on the web. Just FYI and thank you.

Susquehanna uses relays and runs lights directly off the battery. TLG`s are inline.

The "harness" that comes with the lights are just adopters for the lights from H13 to H4, not anti-flicker.
Here's more info on the TLG harness - I would hesitate to run it based on how cheap it's made. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/tlg...ss-211991.html

Installed the lights tonight. Took me a little over an hour cause....well all vehicle work typically takes me 4x as long as stated. Won't get a chance to see them in the dark on the road until tomorrow night but they did light up the garage very well.

Shoot, it will take me an hour just to get that grill off. Then another hour to figure out how to get them in. Then I'll start aiming them.

The grille was the 2nd worst part for me. The most difficult was unfastening the stock headlight connectors. Have a flathead screw at the ready to pry that baby apart.

Thanks for the tips. I will also keep some electrical tape handy.

I hope to install mine this weekend. Problem is I am so cranky with my lift kit issues that I should probably wait till I am calmer. I can see bad things happening if things go south with the install.

Last night I was able to try out the new Truck Lites in the dark. They are very awesome! I thought I noticed that the beams were crossed and once I pulled onto a gravel road behind another car it was apparent that was correct. The driver side headlight points pretty far to the right, while the passanger side light is almost perfect.

When I got home I was going to try and change the aim of the driver side light. I was able to find the adjustment screw but have no tool that will fit back there through the small gap between the hjeadlight and the grille. I would imagine I'll have to take the grille off again....is that correct?

the adjustment screw will only adjust up and down. There is no adj screw for the horizontal adj. you will need to manipulate the lense with your hands and use some shims to aim it properly. I used electrical tape and it has worked great. Properly aimed lights make a world of difference. the proper tool for the vertical adj is a 15 torx. The best way to actually get them aimed correctly is at night on a flat dark road with 0 traffic and yes you need to remove the grill to get the horiz adjustment correct but vertical adj can be done with the grill in place just need a 15 torx screw driver

Thanks for the tips! I was afraid I would have to remove the grille again. I've read previous posts on how to properly aim the lights but the slope on my own driveway does not give me an even surface to work with.

Could be because the majority of the videos are recorded in a open area. I mainly see the X when my headlights shine on something vertical.

Also, has anybody installed the Susquehanna harness with TLs and LED fogs?

I installed the Paramount front bumper with built-in LEDs and two of them pulse for about 10 minutes after shutdown. I expect it's due to the CANBUS but would like to hear from somebody who actually solved it with the Susquehanna harness.

Spoke to the guys at Susquehanna. They helped me out, but once they started talking about mounting things on the firewall, they kind of lost me...that's where my comfort level ends on these things.

I had my local guy install it for me and its done a killer job on my TLs. No more flicker and they are definitely brighter.

I can prob post pics of where its mounted and connected to the battery later, but everything else is behind the grille and I'm not taking that off again for pics.

Any advantage running the Susquehanna harness over the anti-flicker harness from TLG or Northridge?

Truck-Lite makes their own anti-flicker harness now for $60 a set. I may jump on these.

Discount Fleet Supply seems like the best deal at $390 for the set. Between the 5% discount and free shipping, it's the way to go.

So to be clear, we need both the H4 To H13 Adapters 96630 (when ordering the headlights at DFS) and the Truck Lite PWM H13 to H4 adapters harness (Manufacturer Part No: 96830-3)?

Also nekojku, do you have a part number on those fog light bulbs? Can't find them on ijdmtoys.com.
