Is there really that much of a difference?

Which LED bulbs did you buy?

That's a showstopper IMHO. Here' in the PNW I need headlight that will melt off ice and snow.

Sounds like HID's might be a better solution.

Loafy I think I saw this confirmed on another thread, but TJs do not need the H4 To H13 Adapters in order to run the truck-lite gen 7s right? Will my '03 give them a flicker? There have been a lot of discussions throughout the forum on pigtail, harnesses etc. so just wanted to double check with you guys first.

I've been reading all the threads on truck-lites vs. HIDs for the last 4 weeks... I think I just need to pull the trigger on these LEDs!

horatioyo I got a pair of Truck-lites with the harness and a pair of Rigid Duallys from Northridge4x4 for 600$. Since I already have all the Duallys I can handle, I sold them for 180$.

Irishbaja As I've said I've run the TL LED 7" headlights now for 3yrs zero issues on a vehicle that does 130,000 miles a year in all conditions. Here's a neat YouTube video of the TL headlights and 7" flood and spotlights. I have the 7" spotlights for load lights and they are blinding.

Nomadarmy love my Truck-lites! I highly recommend!

Irishbaja In regards to Truck Lites it's a no brainer if you want brighter lights in the Jeep. I've been running Phase 5 TL LED's in my OTR trucks for 3yrs without any issues. I've got Phase 7 TL in my Harley no complaints at all and it's what I'm going to put in my Jeep when I get it back from AEV.

Buy the Truck-Lites and you won't be disappointed!

Yes, they do flicker without a wire harness upgrade...

No, I doubt I will run them on my fresh ordered 13...

I am told by a good source that Trucklite is working on eliminating these issues...

They are BRIGHT like a SHINING STAR, thats for sure!!!!

Cheers,

Sir, where do I get this harness upgrade you speak of?
I want to get rid of the slight flicker too.

Thanks!

I tried the LED bulbs for the fog lights and they are not bright enough, so I ordered the Vision X fog light replacements.
What I did do was to replace all my other bulbs for the interior and all my signal, brake and marker lights.
I got them from Superbrightleds.com and work very, very well.
For me, it's all about safety, seeing and being seen, and of course the longevity of the bulbs.
I do believe that I should not have to change these LED bulbs out as long as I own the Jeep, 12 to 15 years and possibly beyond.

Well, I had the same problem with the slight mis-match with the grill, but it's nothing.
I found the installation very easy and I made sure to aim them properly, easy too.
I have driven the Truck-Lites under all kinds of conditions and they hold up like the company says.
Remember that they are military grade headlights.
And they really make my 2011 Call of Duty Rubicon look great.
Well worth the money!
Now I am waiting for the LED Vision X fog light replacements to arrive.

Metonymy Before anyone spends the money, go look in the lighting thread. There's a link and a discount code so you can get the pair for about $430 shipped. No need to spend $280 for each lamp.

Don't know about the scratching. One of my own concerns is the temperature of the glass (or plastic) in winter conditions; does it melt away the ice like normal HL?

Btw, if you pull the trigger for the Trucklite's, make sure to replace the harness as well to get rid of the 'flickering'.
I have the Truck-Lites on my 2011 COD and no problems at all. I don't know about the JW Speaker lights but I say that I am so pleased with the Truck-Lite LEDs that I say get them...NOW!
They are really great, give a lot of white light.
The hardest thing about installation was aiming them, not that hard.
I am pleased that these LEDs may very well last the 12 to 15 years that I may have the Jeep.

I doubt that will be an issue as JW Speaker left out the circulating fan on their redesigned lights.
