Arrow Inspired Engineering LED's

Whatcha know about them?

I did a little research...They are in Miami

They apparently have the LED's that don't flicker if you use them for fogs

The are cheap and appear to be good quality

They even have the mounts for our foglights...plug and play

I run their cubes in the factory foglight spots and I can't say enough good things. Sami is great to work with and their products are good quality. Also if you want something not listed on their site just shoot them an email, they will try to accommodate what your looking for. I highly recommend them.

No flicker what so ever!

I'm going to create a video later just to show what it looks like when driving. Absolutely love this mod.

I tried with my phone and it's not coming out right for some reason

These pics don't give it justice.

Pic with fog on and off.

I got the flood pattern and it lights up the street signs like crazy and obviously around the road. 100x better than stock fogs!!!!

Again crappy pics but you will be amazed.

Initially I thought their fogs might be an easy way for rock lights but they are too costly. I looked at their rock lights and look bout the same as the lights that Oznium carries but 6x the cost. I'm just basing it on appearance as their website doesn't show specs. The Oznium's range from 3-18 lumens (depending on color). I have the Oznium's already but haven't put them into use on the trail. At the mall they look cute. They can be found here http://www.oznium.com/led-bolt

I haven't hooked up the rock lights just yet, but i did connect it to a 9volt just to get an idea and it let up my garage. I was very impressed with them. I am not sure is oznium are the same, but for that price...shoot i might grab some.

I already gave two of my rock lights to a buddy. He is going to mount them inside his YJ as floor lights I was planning on adding the others into my reverse lights...just haven't had time.

Put mine in a few weeks ago, no one has flashed me yet so they aren't bothering oncoming drivers.



Here's a video I took on a pretty dark road via my dashcam of the flood lights. I turn them off and on several times. Beside lighting up the road better the reflective signs appear brighter when they're on as well. Keep in mind these lights were not installed flush to the end of the socket like the OEM lights were, they are about 2 inches back, I imagine I'll get even more out of them when I move them forward some more.

High def video is available for this via the youtube settings.

Definitely would like to see how they look once you mount them forward a bit more. I'm looking for something to mount in my JCR bumper. I'll get it back from powder coating in about another week and I want to have something other that the OEM fogs to install when I get ready to install the bumper.

Just buy them and stop wondering. It's worth it. If still in doubt ask them about a return policy.

This is not mine but how they look when flush to where the OEM came too: (a photo the manufacturer had)



These are mine, a friend installed them and didn't realize an adjustment could be made to bring them forward. I asked the manufacturer about it and he told me how, it's just been too damn cold to deal with it right now.

I moved them forward and I do get a better peripheral light flow. Basically these lights fill the area between the Jeep's bumper and where the low beams hit the road ahead. The roads around here haven't been dry enough to get a good comparison video, the wet road eats up the light reflection, but here's a few still shots.

Halfway through moving them forward, the one on the left is at the forward point.



Low beams no fogs



High beams no fogs

They do have a nicer look to them than the square ones. However, looking at the site, so far they are only available as an "8 degree spot", no "90 flood", which would blind oncoming drivers if used on road.
