Recently I purchased some LED headlights from Seward offroad and I am not happy with them at all so Im looking for an upgrade.
My question isn't which is better for lighting but more so which will hold up when offroading. I wheel in Florida where its all mud, sand, and water so I want a light that will hold up against all that. Once I get a snorkel there will be the occasional time that I'll dunk the headlight underwater, not really all that often but its a possibility.
So which would yall go with for my situation. As for which brand I want to get if I go LED I'm gonna go with KC or HID I'm gonna go with HIDprojectors
I put some HIDs in my truck, and I have the JW 8700 v2 in my JK. The HIDs are brighter, but they have a ballast, and the lens arent sealed. Not good when going through mud and water.
The JWs are sealed. So the only thing exposed is the power connector. Even though the HIDs are brighter, I would not change them out on my JK because I dont have to worry about mud or water taking them out.
I'm in fla as well with the same type of wheeling, so here's my opinion. I built a set of lights from trs and one of the best mods I've ever done. Super bright and functional and zero issues with water crossings and water over the hood deep. I used a cloth bandaid over the "breather" hole in the reflector side. Build a nice set of projectors for under $500 and don't look back.
I installed a set of new gen 2 jw speaker led's on a friends jeep and they're def better than stock but not even close to great, especially for the money.
