I am a fan of halos and so where the people I wheeled with in the dank and dark PNW.

If I was going to put money into headlights, I would buy something that is actually going to provide better lighting at night and not just something cosmetic. I've got no issue with halos (as long as they are white) and am actually a big fan of DRL's, but I would spend the money to get an actual LED headlight. Just my opinion though.

Thoughts on these Halos? I understand that the halo part is the only LED part. Like the look, and need something very easy to install for a beginner.

Headlights are important. You need them --- they're safety equipment. Halos can be functional if designed that way; listen to @dwtgolden and get a quality lamp, not a lamp-shaped toy.
I'm surprised that ET is selling those.

There are plenty of DRL options and plenty of quality headlamp options.

What are some quality LEDs that are plug and play?

Best imho for anybody that gets wet snow: https://www.quadratec.com/p/quadratec/heated-led-projector-beam-headlamps-jeep-wrangler-jk

Then: https://www.quadratec.com/p/jw-speaker/8700-evo-j3-led-headlights-jeep-wrangler-jk

Then: https://www.quadratec.com/p/jw-speaker/8700-evolution-j2-series-led-headlight-wrangler-jk

These are okay and made by Peterson; might find the Petersons for less: https://www.quadratec.com/p/jw-speaker/8700-evolution-j2-series-led-headlight-wrangler-jk

Next would be the Trucklite/GE followed by @Quadratec older models:
https://www.quadratec.com/products/97109_0020.htm

I'd like to test the VixionX light and see what it really does. But I still like the JWS products since I know their lineage, materials, how well they hold up. I'm still running a prototype of their Evolution J1 for 5 years and it's doing just fine.

Real lights are tested and assayed to be compliant with FMVSS-108 per NHTSA regulations.

Hey there,

We offer plenty of plug and play LED headlight kits.

Here are all of the LED headlights that we offer: https://www.quadratec.com/categories/lighting_lenses_bulbs/headlights/led-headlights

Just be sure to choose your Jeep from the drop down menu.

I currently have the Quadratec Stealth LED headlights in both my TJ and in my JK. I also have the LED fog lights in my JK as well, I love them!

Quadratec LED headlight with LED fog light combo, this comes with the white Q or the Stealth blacked out version in the photo a little lower:

Ive been going back and forth on what headlights I want... I was pretty sure I was going for the pro comp, but it seems people either love them or hate them.

Now I’m torn between the pro comps and the quadratec. (Or something else in that price range)

Anyone want to share thoughts?

Wow, I had no idea how expensive some of these LED's can be. That being said I don't even get delivery of my new Jeep until tomorrow and I am already looking at mods! lol.

The @Quadratec branded items would be a more hassle-free ownership experience imho

I am considering this one from your site;

https://www.quadratec.com/p/oracle-lighting/7-high-powered-led-headlight-pair-jeep-cj-12-volt-system-jeep-wrangler

Is it plug and play? Easy to install? I don't see an install video for it so not sure. Would these LED's require any kind of adjusting (the height of light) after being installed? Is it a good, reliable product to go with? Thanks.

^Can't figure out how to edit the above post, but about those lights I posted; would those be okay in winter where it's very cold with lots of snow? Thanks.

In general, halogen lights do not have issues in snowy climates because the halogen bulb heats the lens and melts any snow that tries to accumulate on the light. LED lights produce heat in the rear so do not warm the lens, allowing snow to accumulate on the headlight just like it does everywhere else on the front of your vehicle. The only solution is to buy a light with an LED light with a heated lens. The ones you are looking at are not heated.

Thank you for that, so sounds like the one I am looking at won't work for me as there'll be issues in winter. I will keep looking at other options.
