Chrome JW Speakers on a JK/JKU
 
Looking for as many pictures with the Chrome JW Speakers as I can get in the next week or two. I haven't seen any in person, and the chances are slim. I feel they chrome would not be as "LOUD", and look more like something that would come on a factory vehicle, such as the ones that come on a Mercedes G-Wagen. I'm not saying I want a G-wagen, I'm just using their OEM lights as an example.

I hope this isn't the wrong place to put this thread, but if it is....my bad....my bad...
So, lets get some pics!

Nevermind....Just bit the bullet on the black ones. I was offered a deal I couldn't refuse (Thanks Northridge!). My second gen Trucklites will be up for sale in Mid-july, so be on the lookout!

That was quick! If anyone wants to post some photos I'd still be interested in seeing them. I have been debating TruckLites vs JW Speakers for awhile now. I have billet and think the chrome might look nicer then the black.

It was quick from the time I posted, but I've been agonizing over this for a couple of months...lol. It's the mother-hubbard Jeep bug tunneling though my brain. I'm with you, though, I would still love to see some pics with the chrome. I just think it would look better on lighter colors (I have white).

I have the truck-lites right now, and they look amazing to me. But it's looks vs. the specific lilght output I'm looking for. When I get them, I'll take pics of the truck-lite in one side, and the JW in the other for a comparo.

Good choice! I have JWs you'll love em!

I have the JW Speakers...Mine are the original 8700s...not the evolutions but from the front they are identical. Same light output as the evolutions...You will love them...thats all there is.

Ok...an update....I don't know what's wrong with me, but I canceled my order for the Speakers because I decided I don't want them in black. I'm not a chrome guy, but I do like the headlights to look chrome because it looks more like it would come from the factory that way (it's the only chrome that will touch the jeep). So I had to have to have them sent back while in transit with UPS, and ordered the chrome Speakers from another company even though the company I bought the black ones from is an outstanding dealer. It cost me $50 to have them sent back, but I feel like I'd regret it if I didn't go with the chrome.

In the end, though, I can't wait to get them. I feel bad that I don't like the light output of the truck-lites, because they are a beautiful headlight, but I think the light pattern will be better with the JWs, which is more important.

On another note, If anyone is looking for Truck-lites in mid-July, keep your eyes posted in the for sale section. I'll be traveling from NJ to Fl, and can meet anyone alone the way.

I'd still love to see some pics of JKs with the chrome, but if not, I'll eventually add some for other viewers.

I'm sure you're happy with the prior version, since they heat the lenses.

I like that Arctic, that was my first choice for a JK, I just didn't time it right.

Great lights. The black does look great with the J dubs.

I am pretty curious myself if I should maybe get the chrome to go with the white Rubicon!
Wish someone had a picture of it!

I have a white JKUR, also. I sent the black ones back and ordered some chrome JWs. I'll be installing them in a couple of weeks when I get back, and will take some pics.

PM Dave from Northridge 4x4. I'm sure he'll work something out for you.
