I installed the Razer Extreme Skull LED Headlights (RZJHL-6506) on my 2014 JKUR.
So we all know that the stock JK headlights are atrocious, dim, have a terrible beam pattern, & a number of other less than desirable accolades… I live on Maui… there are very few street lights or sky glow around here… there are pigs and deer and I need my headlights to show them too me before one of them decides to jump out in front of me.
I have been reading over the various options for headlight replacement. from Sylvania's, JW Speakers’, KC’s, the H4 housing and replacement, HID units, importing the european OEM headlights, etc. I came across these LED headlights from the internexus one day and I ordered them.
When the box arrived from Amazon I pulled out my phone and started taking pictures… I thought someone was having a laugh at my expense because i was opening Matryoshka (Babushka, nesting) boxes. I had to slice through tape on three boxes until I got to the bubblewrap and headlight units. I included all of the images i took so you can have a laugh too.
A quick inspection & more pictures shows that I have two headlights, a double-sided photocopy piece of paper for the instructions and some of those crappy vampire splice wire connectors that should never find their way on any vehicle that will see the elements. Maui is one of those places on earth, surrounded by the ocean that even the rust here rusts. I will be soldering the two wire connections and using some sealant and heat shrink to reinsulate the daytime running light wires.
Once I got to that step in the instructions I noticed that contrary to the description, on my 2014 JKUR there is no 'Green' wire. My Left side is white with a green stripe and my right side is white with a tan stripe.
More pictures and inspection. these headlights have the SAE and DOT hallmarks on them along with the tech specs on the back.
Low Beam - 20W
High Beam - 20W… interesting
Lens - PolyCarbonate
Housing - ADC (Cast Aluminum)
MADE IN TAIWAN… really? ok… I'll give them a shot.
There are two black resin potted boxes in the wiring. could the main one be an included anti-flicker? I’m not sure what the second potted box is as it connects into the DRL wiring. More on those later.
Then a shot of my JK before and after the install. (phone pictures on different days)
After Driving with these new headlights at night, they do flicker at idle, but just barely. you really need to be looking for any deviation in the amount of light being put out.
the light color, amount and scatter pattern are so much better that the OEM lights.
I’ll be in touch after I’ve had these running for a number of hours to verify their longevity.
post 2 has the remainder of the images for comparison.
