Very nice!! Prices seem pretty decent compared to others. Was the install really "plug & Play" like it says on their site? How about the fitment...any modification to the stock housing or do these fit right in?

Completely easy plug n play... the only additional thing you can do is make the halos flash orange with your turn signal . That requires splicing but still very easy

What are your thoughts on these lights? Fit and finish? I almost hit the purchase button on The JW speaker head lights for $600.00 until I saw your post. Did you have to install an Anti flicker device? Let me know I absolutely hate the stock Headlights.

The link you posted shows they fit 1997-2017 Wranglers...  TJ's and JK's use the same headlights?

Only thing different is the newer JKs (like '14+) need anti flicker for LEDs

I can speak for JWs. The Js have built in anti flicker. They are amazing and work flawlessly. February will be 2 years not one flicker

when you say flicker, do you mean the hyperflash that occurs sometimes with LED and need a load resistor?  if thats the case than no mine don't do that at all so far....I even spliced in the halo signals (because why not they were there)LOL...no hyper flash there either....best of luck on your choice

The BCM on newer JKs fluctuates the power to the headlights (starting in '16 also the fog lights) LEDs are very sensitive to power unlike halogen.

Good info guys. Yes I am concerned with the flickering. The JW's I was looking at have the anti flicker built in. My biggest issue is price its a good chunk of change. I just don't know if its worth it monetarily.  I could be putting my money somewhere else in the Jeep.

What sold me on JWs was when I watched a video of a guy hitting the fog light with a 5lb hammer. Also, 2 years ago there wasn’t all the options they have now.

One thing to remember with LED headlights is they don’t produce any heat, so if driving in sloppy slushy icey weather they won’t melt themselves, unless you pony up and get the heated versions

My wipers freeze up before lights. So when I get out to clean them up I do the lights too.

This looks like a pretty good deal? I would prob go Rock lights after doing a night run.
