    Now, I will show you these LED Headlights.

  • 1. Vplus

    The great thing about aftermarket headlights for the Wrangler is the many styles that are available. This Vplus 7 Inch LED Headlights Hi/Lo Beam 14000LM Daymaker Led Headlight H6014 H6024 is the first product but end the reviews with it’s great horizontally lined high beams. It sort of looks like something you’d find on a chopper motorcycle. But don’t let that turn you away; these lights are built to fit any Jeep Wrangler perfectly.

    Painless to Put Together
    If you value your time. These headlights will have you finished with installation in under 30 minutes. They also are great for offroad driving and won’t get permanent marks all over the lens during such an occasion. And, as previously mentioned, you get a distinctive luminosity that’s bright but pleasant on the eyes. However, there are a few catches that you should know about.

    DOT Approval Status
    The most important is the headlight’s DOT approval status. There have been conflicting reports of users getting stopped by law enforcement for having lights that were not DOT approved. At the same time, some have argued that the DOT insignia is located on the light itself. Because of this speculation, it’s advised that you check with your local law enforcement before you purchase, or use the headlights primarily for off road driving. And while the brightness will be enough for most people, the high beams tend to perform poorly at night especially under foggy and rainy conditions.

    The Vplus LED Headlight is nice for those who want bright lights that can function well in any environment. If you don’t mind they are after-market brand, it just might be one of the best-LED lights on the list. Just be sure to check if you need additional items (adapter) before anything’s set in stone.

    Vplus
    Vplus-LED

    Pros

    • Installation can be completed in under 30 minutes
    • Performs well in off road driving conditions
    • Brightness is intense on the high beam and illuminates to a degree few headlights can match for the Wrangler

    Cons

    • The lenses are not suitable for motorists that do extensive off road driving; may become damaged/scratched
  • 2. JW Speaker

    The JW Speaker 8700 Evolution J2 is a 7-inch headlight and comes with a bright luminosity that’s great in any weather, whether it be rain, fog, or snow. The design was specifically made to help you get the device assembled to your vehicle quickly with no headache from worrying about trimming.

    Through the Wire
    Some headlights have a consistent problem with adjusting properly when installing. The headlight buckets are just the right size, you should have everything ready to go in under one hour (or less). Wiring is straightforward but it’s recommended that you flip through the manual to ensure that everything is properly aligned.
    You don’t want to get out on the road flashing your high beams directly at oncoming traffic, so find time to take a test run around the block if you’re unsure of the direction the light is traveling.

    What you’ll Need if you have a Wrangler JK
    Not everything is pristine, however. If you own a Wrangler JK, you’ll have to look for an H13 adapter. That way, you can avoid needing expensive installation from professional or instances of trying to splice it all together on your own. Off market LED headlights typically work better for with adapters, so keep this in mind before you make a final choice on what you end up with. Another negative is the fact that only one light is sold with this product. If you want two (and you probably will), you must get an additional headlight to complete the setup.

    JW-Speaker

    Pros

    • For the Wrangler, no adjustments to the headlight buckets necessary, ready to install immediately
    • Both the chrome and black headlights do not differentiate in brightness or lumens
    • Suitable to use as a daytime running light on the low beams

    Cons

    • Requires an H13 adapter for the Wrangler JK
    • May cause FM radio interference
    • When using an anti-flicker harness, switching from high to low beam may take a few seconds
    • Not sold in pairs; an additional light must be purchased if more than one is needed
  • 3. LX-LIGHT

    The LX-Light Black Daymaker comes with two 7-inch headlights and 4-inch foggers. They are black in design, making Jeeps look slightly odd on at first glance. Not that this is a bad thing; the headlights have some great advantages that make it highly recommended, especially if you’re looking for a bundle of everything you’ll need to complete your setup without rushing for more parts.

    Getting through the Elements
    The anti-flicker module is an example. It’s built into the headlights themselves, so you and other vehicles around you will be much safer on the roads. The fog lights also deserve recognition. Use them in unfavorable weather so your presence on the road will be seen from a long distance apart from you. And it’s compatible with nearly every Wrangler, so don’t worry about getting something that won’t work for your Jeep.

    Useful Instructions to help you Setup
    The biggest hiccup is centered around the passenger side headlight. You’re Jeep may not align well with the housing during installation. It’s off by less than two inches. To fix, a dremel should suffice in getting it fastened to the housing slot. Take note that this primarily applies to the Wrangler JK. And the fog lights might need to be shaved a little bit for them to attach to your Jeep’s wires without coming off.

    As you can already tell, you may need a little help in getting the Black Daymaker started before you take them out on the road. Other than that, the LX-LIGHT earns points for being a high quality LED that will come on handy if you’re in an area that receives a fair share of inclement weather.

    LX-LIGHT

    Pros

    • The anti flicker module is featured with the lights
    • Can legally be used on all roads and highways (in the United States); DOT certified
    • No additional purchases required (comes with two pairs of headlights/fog lights)

    Cons

    • The headlight on the passenger side of the Wrangler JK may not properly align with the housing unless slight modifications are made (to the housing slot using a dremel)
    • The screws for fog adjustment are on the stock’s rear and holes may need to be drilled into the bumper for installation to be completed
    • Fog light connectors may require slight shaving (cutting) for them to fit the Wrangler’s wiring like normal
  • 4. Xprite

    The Xprite 7-inch Halos consist of a headlight pair and nothing else. But that’s not to say there anything less than those reviewed that feature fog lights. On their own, they offer plenty of features that make them so good, you may end up substituting the LEDs for one important factory part of your car.

    Flashing Lights
    This implies the turning lights in the front. You can configure the Xprite to perform in the same manner, flashing in a bright amber colored hue when you direct your Wrangler to make a turn. In fact, it could be tempting to replace them exclusively with your newly acquired lights; the lumens is bright enough to easily overpower the light emitted from your blinkers. It also makes them look slightly off while they’re blinking with your Xprites at the same time. The rhythm is not the same as the LEDs.

    What You Should Do to Avoid Scratches
    If you like your lenses string and durable though, you’re out of luck. Although they perform well at protecting the lights themselves, they are extremely prone to scratches. So much so, you’ll even have to use caution when being washed. To give you an indication of just how sensitive the lights are to scratches, even a cleaning with a toothbrush and toothpaste could bring on marks (and before you say it-yes, you can use toothpaste to clean your headlights.) Regardless of these minor inconveniences, the Xprite still shines with enough perks to keep most Wrangler owners happy.

    Xprite

    Pros

    • The lights can be modified to function as a turning signal replacement
    • There are four functions total, including a broad daytime running light that circles around the high/low beams
    • Headlights have great ventilation and flickering will rarely occur (when installed properly)

    Cons

    • The lenses are not suitable for motorists that do extensive off road driving; may become damaged/scratched
    • In order to use the turning signal function, splicing with solder and soldering iron may be required for the setup to work properly

  • Best Jeep Wrangler LED Headlights – Buyer’s Guide

    As with purchasing any vehicle parts, getting a set of LEDs for your Jeep Wrangler is definitely something you should take your time with. Review these quick tips before you come to a final pick on the headlights you want.

    ECE/SAE/DOT Approval
    TIn the United States, it is mandatory for LED headlights being driven on the roads and highways to have DOT/SAE approval. ECE is for Europe. Usually, headlights that are safe for driving on public roads will have their status indicated on the lens. To check, view the headlight in question and look for DOT/SAE markings. It’s often printed near the top portion of the light. If you see it, that means you’re safe to use the lights without the worry of getting a ticket from law enforcement. If not, you may want to save the headlights for an offroad trip.

    On Road and Offroad
    If you live to drive off road (or have no choice but to do so), you should always look for headlights that are suitable to withstand the bumpy conditions. Some LEDs simply do not work well unless they are used on paved surfaces. Others are great for any driving conditions.

    The best way to tell is to simply observe what the manufacturer’s recommendation is, or check the material of the lens. If it’s something made from a cheap material or at risk of shattering, look elsewhere. This can oftentimes be a confusing decision to make, especially when buying online. If you’re unsure, don’t hesitate to contact the brand in question for an official answer.

    Region
    Knowing what car parts to buy can often boil down to what region you live in. For instance, if you stay in a location that receives a lot of snow, you probably have chains for your tires to help you better navigate on the ice during the winter months. Some LEDs are built to generate little heat. In cold climates, this can wear the bulbs and lens overtime due to freezing and unwanted condensation once everything begins to melt.

    If you’re in a more temperate region, you’re probably familiar with pollen and the potential damages it can cause to a vehicle’s paint. The can also lead to marks on your headlights that are difficult to get out. The best thing is to always look for lights that will either perform well in hot/cold temperatures (or a combination of both), then choose accordingly.
