LED headlights, WOW, what a difference!

Bought the Headlight Revolution GTR plug & play LED's and the difference from the OEM's is amazing. I can actually see the road and ditches. Best is that they are a one beer install.

OEM's are a joke, can't believe they are allowed selling a vehicle with such crappy headlights....

Are these what you installed?

Did you have to install anything for flickering, or have any issues?

No Here is a link to what I purchased and installed. They have a good video on this page that shows the install and comparisons. There is no flicker.

Wonder if the headlights will freeze up during the winter due to lack of heat?

I've tried a set of OPT7 bulbs with their anti flicker modules as well as a set of Lasfit bulbs with 2 different sets of a/f modules. Flicker was noticeable on all 3 combos so I went back to my Philips crystal vision halogen bulbs---they're not LED bright but definitely better than stock--kind of gunshy now about trying any other led bulbs---don't really want to spend 600-800 bucks on a set of replacement led headlights..

I've never tried the insanely expensive "name brand" led headlights; but I do have a set of these (link below) and they work very well. The led drivers are made by Cree which is a well-known brand in the residential led market as well.

You will need a set of h4 to h13 adapters like these:

If your lights flicker, the LED Factory mart will also send you a set of h4 to h4 anti flicker modules. I have a set of those as a backup, but I'm using the following modules and they've been flawless over 2+ years (they also convert from h4 to h13 without a separate adapter):

I have bought from headlight revolution a few times. Always had great luck. They have excellent videos. I have bought LEDs and HIDs. Most recently, I installed low beam LEDs in my f-250. Couldnt be happier.

Never understood the need to spend $300-$600 on headlights. Yes, the factory ones are terrible but you can get LED headlights that are CREE (Phillips) work great and are sub $100 for a set.

These are the ones on mine and wife's JK's for the last 3 years with no issue at all for $85/pair (3 of my friends have these on thir JK's also)

I have two other friends who have these ones that look just like the JW Speaker (so your friends think you paid stupid money on them) and the come with led signal lights also for $99
