Have you taken a look inside the harness enclosure? Might be quicker to do a load resistor swap-a-roo.

You guys are going to need the trucklite anti flickers to keep those from flickering. I've this quality before and they keep failing the cheaper anti flickers and eventually fail the expensive ones depending on how much you use them. The only permanent fix will be the rally conversion harness, if install that and pull power from the battery it will stop the flickering. Other wise your going to continue to fail each anti flicker. The reason he can offer them for that price is because they are the older style ones which had this problem. Thats why some companies don't ship them with anti flickers and require you to purchase the anti flickers separately, so they can put a warranty on the headlight but don't have to warranty the anti flickers. Trust me the newer models don't have this issue. I have a company that is sending me a set of full Halos to test on my jeep jk and they are claiming they have the anti flickers built in and also don't need the ccfl like the old Halos as well making them easier to wire up. I have already saw some videos on the full Halos and from their on site testing they appear to work and not flicker, should have a set in hand in a week or so to install and I'll do a full review.



I've used this company making these quite a bit on the past, I hope it holds true.

Hey Jamie. I've been reading through 50 some pages of reviews on headlights. Saw some of your old ones. Definitely interested in how these work out for you.
New to the forum but on my 3rd Wrangler. Thanks to all of you for your help and reviews!

I had to send them a followup e-mail and they got back to me within 24 hours (this was yesterday/today). Apparently my Anti-Flicker harness was shipped from China on 9/1, but they didn't let me know until I followed up with them (even thought they told me they'd send me tracking info). Long story short, the new AFH's should be here in the next 2 days and I'll hopefully get them on this weekend to see if they fix the high-beam issue.

I also sent a follow-up email earlier today so I will probably hear from them tomorrow. I opened up 1 of the supplied harnesses and they are potted so you can't identify the components easily.

However, it might be easy enough to DIY a harness with the H4 to H13 adapter they supplied. Research time... Let's see, first component is a 4700uf 35v capacitor.

I received my new AF Harnesses yesterday. Hoping to get them in today to see if they make a difference, as I have no brights at the moment. They are definitely a different design than the ones that came with the headlights, so thats something. I'll update after I get them in if they seem to fix the flicker/non-working brights issue.

If I was you I'd go ahead and invest in a set of the trucklites ones. You will be pulling those headlights back out in a month or so to replace those anti-flickers. Those older style headlights like that for some reason would burn those cheap anti-flickers out quickly. The lifetime ones on extreme terrain is a good set to invest in as well. A good investment because they have a lifetime warranty.

The newer ones that some other companies are selling now don't have the same issue, I guess some are getting those older ones at a great price now.

Thank you for the great review and detailed measurements. What this tells me is most us are right when we feel blinded by these newer cars with HID proctors. Their low beam output is about the same as a normal halogens high beam output. At what point do we stop with trying to maximize our lighting as it endangers other on coming drivers by blinding them with light and hindering there night vision after we pass.

No problems with high beams? Flicker?

yes so far so good; in fact if possible it seems like the DRL/lights are brighter?!
part number is #63071 jumper with capacitor. was like $45 shipped for the pair.
harness is so much nicer and smaller than the pieces that come with the headlights.

This can only be an issue if they are aimed incorrectly. That's assuming that the optics are properly designed. With the cutoff in place, these lights appear to oncoming traffic no different than any other light that is aimed properly.

I have been in contact with OPAR and they never got my video email. I have resent it, but they are sending me some new AF harnesses even before they received the video. We'll see how it goes... It takes me less than 5 minutes to get the headlights out, so I don't mind trying out a few different pieces.

Hopefully the new harness will work. I am looking forward to your full review. I have trucklite knock-off's and I hate them. I know, shame on me for buying them.

I'm also looking forward to your follow-up review, as mentioned by other posters.

These are on my 'to buy' list. Contemplated the Truck-lites so many times over. But I keep seeing these on other Jeeps (or something similar) and they look great.

I am supposed to be getting a "revised" anti-flicker harness. I'm watching for a tracking number...

I'm still interested in checking the high beam performance, but I'm not expecting them to be world beaters.

I got a set of those as well. I took them off and went back to my old ones I had after a day of running them. They don't get out there very far and the beam pattern is pretty narrow. Opar sent them to me me without anti flickers as well. I used the set off my other ones and got the flicker out on high beam. Just couldn't get past the narrow beam and high beam not being much differnt than low. I was talking with a guy the other day who is running full Halos and he doesn't need anti flickers with them either or a cffl to keep the Halo from flickering. He's running them on a 2015 jeep jk with just the H4 adapters no anti flicker and no flickering at all. He said they are starting to build into the headlights now.

Finally installed my replacement AF devices that Opar sent me. My high beams work! They leave a bit to be desired, but they do work with no flicker. Glad they were able to rectify the issue.

Hey Juggaman - can you give a bit more detail on why the high beams leave a little bit to be desired. Thanks !

On another thread OPAR asked us about a headlight that was purple as a DRL and it didn't fair too well in the WF crowd. We are more often than not looking for simple and high performance without the ricer look... So I was poking around their store on Amazon and found something that was much closer to a basic LED headlight and when I found that it was also stamped SAE DOT, I thought I would give them a try.

https://www.amazon.com/Daymaker-Proj.../dp/B01HD6HX8U

That's the product and at the time of writing this they are/were $137 a pair. That's pretty cheap with what you get, 2 headlights, 2 anti flicker harnesses and 2 H13 to H4 conversion harnesses.

So this is the package:



Unboxing:




The DOT marking:



Initial impressions are decent on the headlight, cast aluminum frame with polycarb face. The H13 to H4's are nice but the anti flickers appear to be on the cheap side... It also needs to be said that it looks like the same light unit that is sold under MANY different "brands".

I use a LUX meter for performance testing. It isn't extremely scientific, but it is repeatable and allows for some comparisons in output. Here you can see it showing 483 LUX on my kitchen counter which is a TON of light. Commercial lighting is a significant part of how I make a living...



I wanted a baseline of performance, so I grabbed my near new 2016 Equinox with Halogen Projectors that have been quite impressive to me.

I measured output straight ahead at 50' and then 15' off axis to both sides which was also 6' closer to the vehicle.

I used a standard iPhone for the photos, so don't try to read too much in to them as every one of them looks different than what my eyes saw.

We'll start with the low beam pattern shots.


Equinox:



Stock JK:



Hella's:



OPAR's:



My eyes told me something similar to the photos... The Equinox projectors were the most controlled light output. They also looked to have the widest beam spread.

I also got LUX readings on the high beams of all but the OPAR's. So here is the first comment of note on actual quality. I had the same issue as some others that have bought the OPAR's, one of my high beams is dead and the one that works flickers quite a lot on high beam. It appears to be an anti flicker harness issue. I will contact OPAR and see what they have to say, but right now my thought is they need to up the quality of the anti flicker even if they need to charge a little more for it. The low beams are steady with no flicker.

So here are the LUX readings:

Equinox:

Low left: 51.7 Low center: 145.4 Low right: 84.2
High left: 70.9 High center: 372.1 High right: 118.5

Stock JK:

Low left: 14.5 Low center: 67.7 Low right: 29.8
High left: 20.3 High center: 152.3 High right: 41.4

Hella H4:

Low left: 27.2 Low center: 115.8 Low right: 30.8
High left: 41.3 High center: 304.1 High right: 51.4

OPAR LED:

Low left: 55.6 Low center: 169.2 Low right: 57.1


I did seem to have high's on the OPAR's for a second and the center reading was around 280... And the brief appearance was that the high beams weren't as powerful as the Equinox or the Hella's. I will retake those measurements once the anti flicker harnesses are worked out.

Also, my wife made the comment that the passenger headlight appeared to be brighter than the drivers headlight. So I took a photo to try to see if it was visible, and it looks like it is to me. I'm going to try to measure the output close to the lights, but I'm going to wait until I have the harnesses worked out.



Subjective comments:

The lights are slightly blotchy which is mostly noticeable when going around a corner but in my opinion they were less obnoxious than the Trucklights when going straight ahead.

It's too early to definitively comment on the high beams... I'll have to update that as well when the harnesses are corrected.

The stock headlights SUCK and those that say they don't simply have not experienced quality lighting...

Nothing had the spread of the Equinox's projectors.

The center beam of the OPAR's is pretty bright. It had the highest output in the middle but dropped off much faster than the Equinox off axis.

More to come.
These headlights are a cheap Chinese rip-off of a JW Speaker LED headlight design. NO thanks. I will wait to see what the 2017 Jeep Wrangler LED headlights are all about and who makes them. I'd rather put serious coin on LED headlights that were developed with Chrysler for the Jeep Wrangler...
