DiPietro Man, just installed them and they look SWEET... Once my radiator is back in and I get it on the road I will post some new pics of the lift and light covers...

Down here in Athens I shouldn't get too much if any crap from the cops...

Loo I had some on my old Element, never had any problems with legality but they sucked at night. Long Story short, Mom buys an Element, two days later I total my Element, give her my tints and buy another Jeep.

MNPHINZ I've had headlight covers on a lot of my vehicles and have probably had about 2 or 3 tickets for them. Haven't had them on my Jeep yet but I think I will order some. I'd go for it, they might mess with you a bit, especially the Highway cops.

Go for it!

slf41002 I ran them on mine for a while but could not keep them on.I always lost the one on the passager side.Lost one in Cincinnati and ran it over after I lost the second one I when another direction with the lights.Also they are not road legal but the cops normally don't say to much but they will cut your light by half at night so I always removed mine for night driving.The top is with covers and bottom are with black headlights.

I can't wait to add them, it should look pretty sweet I think
Thought about that myself to complete the blacked out stealth look. I checked with a cop friend and he says in Ohio the only law re: it is that the lights must be visable to oncoming traffic from 500' away. But it really kills the headlights brightness - and they're not too bright to begin with.

DiPietro Cool...I'm just wondering if my HL guards will fit with them or if I even want them on the Jeep..
They may be for sale when I install the covers tommorow
