Two Questions...(headlight/mirrors)

First question, has any one installed Truck-Light LED head lights? I am in the process of changing out all my lights to LED and only have front turn signals and head lights left. How are they to live with and are they really bright enough low/high beam at night?

Second question, I am looking for a mirror relocation bracket that lets me use my factory mirrors and mount a light on the hinge, i found a few but use CJ style mirrors...

I haven't tried LED headlights but i saw a guy testing some on a JK on a forum page.

second question Yes 4wd has mirror relocation brackets that use your mirrors Kentrol makes them in stainless, polished or black. Warrior also makes them

Hope this helps

Looks a little expensive, for what it does.

I just order these ones from Amazon. Good reviews, decent price and free shipping. I haven't received them yet so I can't comment on how they work.

Sorry for sounding like a lil baby earlier, I did run across a thread or two on the Truck-Lites but no real love them /hate them. I will order them this week end.

So most of the brackets that have the light tab on them work with the stock mirrors? i guess i just have not seen them installed.

I don't think the mirror relocation brackets have light tabs on them. There is only the place to mount the factory mirror.

Truck-lite head light installed, high beam! I have not driven at night yet. Easy install, it was plug and play.

Can you post your review when you drive at night and if you can take some pics of them at night from inside looking out and outside with high and low beams on just so I can get a better look. Thanks
