BCJKJeep I went to Rally and ordered the harness HL28130J, mainly because I became too busy to solder it up myself.

I have the trucklight, then from that being in Canada, BC to be more precise I turned off my headlights and run my sportlights as my daytime running lights with 5W High Power CREE LED bulbs.

This has worked out great for me and I have had no issues with either the speakers or the harness.

Sorry. Wasn't saying I didn't believe you. Just odd that they are offering different prices on different sites. That's all.

relyt Headlight revolution and tlg are the same company. I went with the trucklite harness. I have no complaints at all with it.

Figured out my own question.....

Looks like TLG is now selling the harness made by Headlight Revolution.

Haven't shopped around yet, but HR is selling it cheaper on their own site, beating TLG's price.

EDIT: Purchase from HR and use code "JeepsOnTrails" and get $15 off, which negates the shipping cost. So I'm looking at about $70 to my door.

Duramaxxed You need this:

1 H13 Connecter

2 H4 Conectors

14ga Wire

2 12v 30a Relays

Misc Spade & O-Ring Connectors

BCJKJeep Blinding people is not bad, I have D2's and have order the 6" to go down by my winch ;-)
But ya i can use it anywho, thanks for the good description on how to do this.

The DIY looks idiot proof
03-18-2013 04:49 PM
stuggin When you install the harness, the DRL's will go from 'flickering' to being full-power brights. In Canada, Jeep programs our lights so that the DRL's are actually our brights at half-power. The harness will eliminate the flicker, but you'll need the Procal to reprogram the Jeep so you're not blinding everyone. Take all of this from someone who JUST went through this.

^ That thread might help you out in terms of building your own harness.
03-18-2013 04:43 PM
BCJKJeep Okay i will take a look back and see if i can find the material needed, i see your picture and the parts is that all that is needed, i ordered the ProCal it looks like i can change my programming through that.

If you have a better break down or a shopping list of the parts that would help me alot.

Appreciate it guys.

All you need to make sure you get right is Hooking Up the Relay.

That Info can be Found here: http://www.mp3car.com/imagehosting/1...9129233622.bmp

Everything else is Self Explanatory.

With that much margin it's almost worth it to sit and make them while I watch the idiot box in the evenings....

BCJKJeep This harness shown here looks better than what i have seen pictured in this thread so far,

Susquehanna MotorSports - Auto Performance Product

Duramaxxed I got the "New" Harness from them in the Mail the other Day.

Dunno why they sent it to me either?

The Plugs are of better Quality (Not just Bulbs with the Glass Broke Off and Wire Soldered to the Leads by a 2nd Grader like the last POS's I got from them), but it's still just 2 Caps in some Heat-Shrink that is so stiff you can't Bend it, so even IF I was going to Install them, I dunno how good it would work without something on the Harness Breaking from being too Stiff.
03-17-2013 04:30 PM
BCJKJeep Ya after I have more intel, I will get the stuff mentioned above and let others know how it works.
With the stock lights being so pathetic I need to keep what I have kow and fix the DRL asap.

The new Truck Lites I have are such I great improvement I cannot go back to the stock ones.

JW speaker told me it would be two weeks about three weeks ago. I'm waiting to see what they do before deciding what to do.

The one i have is just an adapter from the old lights to the new lights sold with the kit.

How much was the harness you got and do you know the part number ?
Just so i know which one to get as the have quite a few.

Thanks Guys ;-)

Just to look at all options where would i find the ProCal, and any parts number would be great.

BCJKJeep Bringing this back alive again, I live in Canada and have the New truck Lite LED headlights.
Now by law i must run the Day Time Running Lights, but i am trying to figure out how to fix the massive flickering i get when i am running these LED's on DTRL mode.

Right now i just run my headlights, but when wifey drives my Jeep she does not remember and it flickers like crazy.

My thought is the rule just says to have DTRL's not what lights will light up, anyone have any ideas on how to power up my stock driving lights in the front bumper?

Or if anyone knows of a fix for the DTRL, i would go that way in a heartbeat.

Thanks for any input, below are the lights in question.

Duramaxxed Had to File a Claim to get a Response from them.

I'm just gonna Send it Back and get my Money Back.

They even openly Admitted on their Facebook Page that these DO WORK for the JW Lights but the Trucklites still have a Problem.

As mentioned in earlier posts, components mounted in this fashion
will not survive the vibration environment under the hood.

Cheap aluminium caps are typically -40C to +85C (although you can
get extended temperature range for a bit more) and rated for a ripple current
of less than an amp (again, for a bit more you can get higher
ratings). Heat and overstress will take them out. This isn't a
clean solution, it's a hack...

These comments apply to "derf"s setup as well, parts from RS
aren't reliable in the environment under the hood, and the
1N400x diodes are not intended to be hanging by their leads
(the plastic package will eventually fracture, the diode will fall
apart, relay drive will fail and off go the lights...)

1000uF with a 150mA coil draw and 8VDC drop out
give you less than 60mS hold time on the coil of the relay.

The cap in the headlamp harness is essentially useless
it will supply current to the lamp for all of about 2mS
(once you get to the size of a soda can, it might help
for a headlamp)

-W
Nice input. I'm not an electronics expert, but I have seen a cheap cap fail once and it failed in fire. I'm gonna stay away from this solution when I get my LED headlights.

relyt I just ordered the Gen 2 harness, and I'm just hoping the problems outlined above are fixed now. I'll report back when I get the harness and get the lights installed.
