I'm looking too…..I can't decide between the JWS 8700 J2, Pro Comp, or the Quadratec Stealth. I currently have some Trucklite knockoffs, but have started having problems with them.

Pro comps will be here on tues. Lifetime warranty. For lights that should last forever it seems many are having issues.

Uhhh, this is a false statement... just because something is rediculously overpriced, doesnt make it “best”.

Happy with my Procomps priced in the middle of the road. Coupled with the lifetime warranty, it is a good thing. Some of the vendors here can get you a great quote.

Below that price range folks will chime in with Amazon specials and the step I see above the Procomp is for the heated Quadratecs, although mine are "satisfactory" in the snow and ice.

I've been on the fence about Quadratec's new heated LED headlights that're produced by JW Speaker. I haven't been able to find any in depth reviews or feedback other than one reviewer on their website. I wish the price were a little lower, and they're selling it as a packaged deal with LED tail lights...which I don't need...

Just put a set of Axial LED headlamps and marker lights with halo rings from extremeterrain.com in today. Instructions left a little to be desired, but the parts seemed like they will stand up and the price was right. Tried to upload photos but apparently can't figure that out. Definitely better than factory.

Here is another vote for the Quadratec brand LED headlights. I have been very happy with them.

I highly recommend the Quadratec Stealth headlights. I have them in my JK and TJ, they are so much brighter than the factory headlights and priced great.

I have the Quadratechs. Not the heated ones. They are much brighter than the stock lights, were easy to install, came with anti flicker harnesses and have worked great for 2+ years so far.

I went JW. Head,fogs,tail and parking lights and haven't looked back. I plan on keeping my jeep,so I went with I feel are the best..or at least what all others seemed to be compared. I also went with Hotheads not mopar since I didnt want to always wonder if I made the correct choice. Did I make the correct Choice who knows but at least I feel like I made the right choice that work for me.
That being said the heated QT came out a month later so who knows...

I was told they’d be around 400 for the set and could pre order in around a week. I’ll be checking them out.
