New headlight issue

I have a 2015 jk, recently just installed LED headlights. I have since noticed that when I turn them on, I have incredible static interference on my radio. Any ideas on what is causing this?

If you plugged them straight in with no harness in between, not a surprise. The Canbus controls all and doesn't like changes. Been known to cause all kinds of strange issues.

I believe the antiflicker harness is required for LED headlight installs on JKs

LED's don't generate enough heat to require a fan.

In fact people in snowy conditions complain about the LED headlamps not melting snow.

Add yourself to the list of people that didn't like that kind of LED replacement bulb and move on. Not worth the trouble.
If you want LED headlights, get full unit replacements and the harnesses to attach them. There are several brands to chose from. Trucklites, KC, quadratech, JW.

They aren't cheap, but they work.
