Show your LEDs!

So a lot of new LED Technology is coming out:

Headlights
Fog Lights
Interior Lights
@$%&! Lights
and those other @%^#!! Lights
Light Bars

I tried some and ended up unsatisfied... So I am looking for all of my options and I am sure other people are also so I figured this would be the place to get some help.

So if you have LEDs, please post them, tell us what they are, and how much they were.

Thanks!

Truck-Lite (2nd Generation).

HUGE improvement over stock. Still getting used to the beam pattern, though. Still, a nice, wide pattern. The high beams are really great as well.

I've changed everything on mine to LED. I got the brake/front turns on eBay. I also got the reverse lights from eBay. My interior lights came from amazon, along with the license plate light and fender lights. I'm also running the Truck Lite headlights, and the JW Speaker fogs. As for Aux lights, right now I only have 2 pairs of 2" lights on the rigid A pillar mounts, but my 20" hood light should be here tomorrow, and I ordered my 50" and brackets earlier today. I'll see about getting pictures later, but most of what I have is already listed above.

I did do a little adjusting with that screw and some electric tape so that might have helped also.

I thought I'd come back and give a little more info on all the lights I'm running.

These are the 2" lights I've got. http://www.ebay.com/itm/251432978817

I'm running one pair of spots and another pair of floods mounted on the Rigid A-pillar brackets.

This is the 20" I ordered to run in the Rigid hood bracket. http://www.ebay.com/itm/301053217691

This is the 50" I ordered today, which I'll be running in the E-Autogrilles brackets. http://www.ebay.com/itm/360777090759

These are what I'm running in the front turn signals. http://www.ebay.com/itm/TWO-AMBER-No...443ee0&vxp=mtr

And these are the Brake/rear turn signals. http://www.ebay.com/itm/TWO-RED-No-R...b0cc45&vxp=mtr

I haven't had any hyper flash or any other problems with these. Well, I have some problem, but nothing major. When it's well below 0°F I get a canbus bulb out warning for the first couple minutes the Jeep is running, but as soon as they get a little heat in them the warning goes away. The bulb never stops working, but the built in resistor doesn't like the cold.

These are what I have in my reverse light. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-x-High-Pow...13125d&vxp=mtr

I haven't had any problems with them, and I get loads more light out the back than with the stock lights.

I'm not sure if these are the exact light, but something like this is what I have in the dome light and reverse light. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...w_bottom_links

These are what I have in the fender lights. http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...edge-base/199/


These are the fogs I have. http://www.quadratec.com/products/97009_804X_PG.htm

And these are the headlights I'm running. http://www.discountfleetsupply.com/tlc27270c-p.html

I do have the trucklite anti flicker harness for the headlights as well.

This is getting insane We all spend bazillion dollars on the jeep and then go ahead and "replace" every fR%$%^#$^ component of it ... last year I finished off with Off road lights, rear backup lights and brighter headlights. NOW!! I'm replacing everything and going LED... I just installed TruckLite's upfront....of course I still have the fogs and back and of course the 2 mile long LED on the windshield

Do the knock offs on ebay throw out comparable light? I am an absolute noob with wiring, would the install be straight forward like Duallys?

I don't know if the rigid lights come with a complete harness or not, but most of the eBay lights don't. Even if they did, I would likely want to use my own stuff anyway. Aside from that, yes, the wiring is pretty straight forward. Use a switch to trip a relay and the relay to power the lights.

As for light output, here are some comparison pictures with my headlights. First is trucklite low beams, then high beams. Third is high beams with all 4 of my 2" eBay lights with the trucklite highs, and last is the 4 2" lights by themselves.

Do you have a picture of your toggle switches installed? Id love to get a set up similar to yours but I think I would need an SPod because I am so illiterate when it comes to wiring because that seems to simplify things a lot. However it is a CHUNK of cash.

One thing to watch for on eBay (I think) is the watts on the individual LED.
The eBay's are usually 3w, if you can find them look for 5w or even 10w per LED.
Higher watts per LED = more/better light. You may pay a little more but you will be happier and a little closer to Rigid Standards.

For example, rigid dully's are 20w / 4 LEDs = 5w per LED
Some of the led cubes that are similar to Rigid dually's actually have 6 LEDs but only have 18w which equals 3w per led.

***Somebody please correct me if I am wrong, I am only repeating what I have been reading and by no means an expert.***

You are correct, but you also have to consider load on the alternator if you're planning on a lot of lights. The higher the wattage of the individual chip, the higher the amp draw. When I get all of mine and get them wired, I'll be drawing almost 50 amps just for lights., if I had all 5w per chip with the same amount of LEDs, I'd be drawing closer to 70 amps.

If you had 5w chips I bet they would give a lot more light with a lot less chips.

Think about it this way, 2 65w normal house lights next to each other are not going to give as much light as one 100w light and you are actually using less - correct?

Some of those bars have double rows of 3w LEDs and they will not be close to the single row of 5w LEDs.
