Re: Your TJ needs LED Headlights!!!

That is 299$ each headlight? Any long term reviews on these? Glass housings?

Looks like a nice upgrade in my future, depending on price.

Re: Your TJ needs LED Headlights!!!

I picked up the first gen Truck-Lites a few months ago at $179 each. They do make a big difference!

Re: Your TJ needs LED Headlights!!!

It's "price each".

They have a plastic lens.

I've been running them since August. They are very nice lights, but I honestly can't recommend them if you do a lot of night time driving in wet snow-storm conditions because they don't generate enough heat to melt any wet slushy snow that sticks to every forward surface of a vehicle while driving.

Dry snow in cold temps, probably not an issue because cold / dry snow doesn't seem to accumulate on the front of a vehicle as much as wet (Western Washington style) snow does.

LEDs don't generate heat, so snow is a problem. Local road departments around here found out the hard way when they changed the traffic signals to LEDs and the first windy snowstorm occurred! Wound up sending local FDs to blast the snow off with fire hoses, which, of course, caused a whole different set of problems....
